Best Porcupine Tree Songs
The Contenders: Page 2XW
Ah this is so hard! I was equally torn between this amazing song, "The Blind House" on "The Incident" and "Sleep of No Dreaming" on "Signify". They all have the killer hook choruses that PT is known for. Cheating has tight lyrics, sickeningly awesome guitar solos, some open breathing time. Of the 3 I mentioned, none of which are on this list, all deserve to be in the top 10, this one is the least mellow, most driving. I can listen to it over and over and still hear new licks in it.V1 Comment
Stereo version is super, but hearing it live was beyond belief. - bellce0
Best base track ever! I'm really surprised its not even in the top ten
That bass, the intense solo, and just the mood the song creates. One one my favourite songs and guitar solos of all time.
Hmm Live Version is just awesomeV3 Comments
This song somehow evokes echoes of Pink Floyd Animals, but it has a more modern twist to it. It�'s not easy doing progressive these days, specially a slow song, but they managed to make it sound so crisp and with such a beautiful melody! The nostalgic lyrics and slow parts almost hint of a sad song, but it gets such a lift from the band that you can�'t help but feeling like running out the door and doing something to seize the day after you listen to it!
This song should have been in Top 5... Awesome song... Love to hear it while traveling in metro...
Reminds me of Pink Floyd which is amazing considering Floyd is one of my favorite bands.
A melodic masterpiece... Listen to it and it will lift you up!V2 Comments
Seriously? Far from being in the top 10, this song isn't even on the list! The bass is cool, the chords in the middle are dream-like and the ending concludes the whole thing marvellously, leaving you speechless and feeling like in a dystopia!
Beautiful baseline. This is the kind of sound that I really love from porcupine tree, slow and melodic and the simple meaningful lyrics coming in at the middle are perfect. Amazing song
Porcupine Trees most beautiful song. Listening to it always makes me feel as if I'm flying near a snowy mountain above the clouds. Really the word to describe it would be soaring.V1 Comment
This song is something else. It feels like a song from your dreams. It's original, emotional, catchy and probably one of the more upbeat tracks you'll find in Porcupine Tree's dark discography.
Second favourite track of of deadwing behind Arriving somewhere. It's a 9 minute masterpiece that is highly unrecognized, I mean 41? Come on easily top ten. Edgy and creepy sounding chorus and some amazing fan theories about the plot. First time I heard this it convinced me to buy deadwing, one of their best albums.
Why has deadening been forgotten? The album title is named after it, simply and odd interesting track.
It's by far one of the best Porcupine Tree songs. It represents all of PT. It's very dark, kinda slow sometimes, and really heavy. Just perfect.
This is a vary special song! The arpeggio and the voice are perfect sinchronizedV2 Comments
TOP STUFF! Magical song!
P.S. Listen to Sentimental before you listen to this...
Sentimental, trains and Normal, three fantastisch songs composed around the same SW guitar rhyhtm. Listen to iT as one song and iT is much beter dan Anesthetize. And certainly way out beter than the three parts of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody.V2 Comments
Come on just don't give votes listening to only one song
I just love the lyrics! I can relate to them
No idea how this song is all the way down at #29. Lyrically and instrumentally, this song is genius. Easily top 5, if not the best PT song.
Should be up in the list because it's so simple yet so awesome. I don't understand why is such a song able to make someone cry, and it should be famous on the radios too, too bad underground songs aren't that considered...
Unreal ending with the blending of vocals... Sports Centers Honour Role Candidate, Top 10 FOR SURE!
The interweaving vocals are amazing.V2 Comments
This song is so intriguing! Why is it way down here! Please vote for it people!
Just listen to the final part... Its too beautiful to handle it
Whenever I listen to the intro, I feel like I'm a criminal.V4 Comments
We lost the skyline version was awesome.V1 Comment
My favorite song from PT, by far, which is saying a lot considering the amount of amazing songs they have. At 3:52 starts the best piece of Music I ever heard. And I'm actually more into Death, Prog Metal
It's a beautiful song... Simple chord progression but quality if the song is awesome...
Among the most richly textured rock songs I've ever heard.
Melodic, with a good build upV1 Comment
Masterclass song by porcupine tree, especially Gavin's 4/4 drum beat which gives the essence of odd time signatures. Pure modern prog rock.
Epic song off their latest album.
How did everyone forget this song? Very good chemistry. Very hardcore.
I guess this song is about every smart kid around the world who got isolated just because they knew too much! Amazing lyrics and melody...
Such an underrated song. The guitar solo is so beautiful and awe-inspiring.V1 Comment
I love mostly all of theirs like Halo, ASBNH, etc. But this one was too low. I mean, 35th?! Sure, other songs have more stuff than this, but My Ashes has arguably the best chorus I've ever heard, and those guitar waves and plucks and violins, and of course, Wilson's amazing vocals! VOTE FOR MY ASHES!
I can't believe My Ashes in so low here! This is one of the best ballads that I've ever heard, Lyrics is just amazing... VOTE FOR MY ASHES!
How? How is this so low? Jesus, this is one perfect song, maybe it is not porcupine tree's usual stile but still...
Just the second verse makes this song top ten for me. Takes me somewhere else
This takes me to another world, the chorus is wonderfulV2 Comments
