The Top Ten

The Other Side of Life

2I Know You're Out There Somewhere
One of their noteworthy songs and like Your Wildest Dreams. The tune is a memo-rising reserve to its meaning and always listen to it a lot.

3Nights In White Satin
One of my all time favorite songs!
Featured in movie Dark Shadows.
All time moody blues best

4Your Wildest Dreams
I love all their songs but this one means a great deal to me personally.

5Go Now!

6Gemini Dream

7I'm Just a Sing (In a Rock and Roll Band)
One of Johns best

8Melancholy Man
The national anthem of melancholy men.

9The Voice
Fantastic song from Justin Hayward, the songwriter


The Contenders

11The Story In Your Eyes
From their most mature creative period. Straight ahead rock, not vapid blue jays stuff that came later.
Just awesome. Get goose bumps every time I hear it!

12Tuesday Afternoon (Forever Afternoon)
The music & lyrics of the Moody Blues songs are some of the most beautiful & meaningful ever written. They still sound amazing live, too!

13Sitting at the Wheel

14Legend of a Mind
This song is just perfect - psychedelic, with amazing flute solo, very dreamy and upbeat, just, well ya know, just fantastic!


15Blue World

16Steppin' In a Slide Zone
Haunting from the beginning, begins a pulse as an energy rocker from John Lodge.

17Had to Fall In Love
Acoustic and beautiful song from the superior craftsmanship of the Moodies.

18Sooner or Later (Walkin' On Air)
Catchy and very uplifting, Justin, John and Ray did well together in a triple duet vocal resonation. I wish that song should have been a single sung by three members. Golly!

19I Dreamed Last Night

20Lost In a Lost World

21The Swallow

22How Is It (We Are Here)

23Lean On Me (Tonight)
Well-written ballad from John Lodge

24Isn't Life Strange

25For My Lady

26Ride My See-Saw

27Lovely to See You

28Veteran Cosmic Rocker

29Bless the Wings (That Bring You Back)
That song is really describing and not a moment too soon, it's very unique and beautiful in all its listening. Don't care if one person thinks that it's depressing.
