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!
All time moody blues best
Featured in movie Dark Shadows.

4I'm Just A Singer (In a Rock & Roll Band)
One of Johns best

5Your Wildest Dreams
I love all their songs but this one means a great deal to me personally.

6Go Now!

Wonderful lyrics combined with powerful vocals truly deliver a fantastic experience. In one word a masterpiece

8The Story In Your Eyes
Their albums from Days of Future Passed thru Seventh Sojourn were their best works. Brilliant album art as well. Leaving them out of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is nonsense, ridiculous, illogical and insulting.


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!

9Gemini Dream

10Melancholy Man
The national anthem of melancholy men.

The Contenders

11The Voice
Fantastic song from Justin Hayward, the songwriter

12One More Time to Live

13Tuesday 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!

14Isn't Life Strange

15Gypsy (of a Strange and Distant Time)
Already on the list.

16Legend of a Mind
This song is just perfect - psychedelic, with amazing flute solo, very dreamy and upbeat, just, well ya know, just fantastic!


17Lost In a Lost World

18Sitting at the Wheel

19Candle of Life

20Blue World

21Steppin' In a Slide Zone
Haunting from the beginning, begins a pulse as an energy rocker from John Lodge.

22Had to Fall In Love
Acoustic and beautiful song from the superior craftsmanship of the Moodies.

23Sooner 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!

24I Dreamed Last Night

25King and Queen

26The Swallow

27How Is It (We Are Here)

28Lean On Me (Tonight)
Well-written ballad from John Lodge

29For My Lady

30Ride My See-Saw

31Lovely to See You

32Veteran Cosmic Rocker

33Bless 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.
