QUEEN - The greatest band in the universe! All their repertoire is phenomenal, and this song is absolutely MAGNIFICENT! Queen's hits are super, but their hidden gems are a treasure trove of sheer ecstasy! An excursion into auditory bliss!
This is a great song, but not prog. - Pony
I love Queen so I'm going with this one.
It's made by Pink Floyd, but it's probably their LEAST prog song, amazing song though
This song is beauty incarnate. everything about it is perfect
Not the best, but really should be higher.V1 Comment
The Poet segues seamlessly into After The Day, and the band usually play them in sequence. Together they demonstrate extremely well what BJH were all about - initially a gentle, folky, melodic song but leading into a dramatic tour de force complete with soaring mellotron and crashing guitar crescendo. Never fails to produce that special tingle-factor - but then so do many of their other songs, and the standard being so uniformly high, everyone will no doubt have a different favourite.
The definitive prog rock classic from BJH's early years - the climax never fails to get the spine tingling!
One of my favorite Jethro Tull song with heavy horses!V1 Comment
This song is just wonderful! It's about a Tolkien-esque story about knights and strange creatures, and it's a good occasion for master Andy Latimer on guitar an d flutes, wizard Peter Bardens on keyboards, powerful and precise Andy Ward on drums and dynamic Doug Ferguson on bass, to show their bright talents.
A wonderful epic song with its harmonious acoustic beginning and engulfing keyboard solo under an amazing bass and drum rhythm. To be listened to attentively eyes closed... Thank you Genesis for this masterpiece :-)
One of the most beautful song from the album Selling England By the Pound, by the way, the full album is fantastic.
What in the world is this song doing at #57? Should be top 10 easily!V2 Comments
The Moody Blues second greatest prog rock band in the world pure melodic rock
Pink are first supertramp third.. Barclay james harvest fourth renaissence fifth
111? are you kidding me?!
Should be top 10, 50 minutes long, basically no words, pure music, pure class - FredTheGooner
This song make me cry! It's so beautifull! Fish voice brings me to heaven, and Rothery's guitar solos do even better! If you don't know it, go quickly listen to this masterpiece (this is the word)!
I've already voted for 2112, but this song should be at least Top 20
Inspired heavily by the likes of Camel and Genesis, Marillion is one of my favorite bands. I would recommend the song "Grendel" which was their answer to "Supper's Ready"V1 Comment
Van der Graaf Generator on its best, the best song on Pawn Hearts, a very strong album. The epic crazy middle section, and the cacaphonic section, and Peters Voice on top of that. Absolutely a great song!
This (and lots of other Gentle Giant) is brilliant and should be higher but not well known enough
If you like Yes,Jethro tull,king crimson,ELP,Queen and Pink Floyd this band has elements of all of them but they still come out with a unique sound.Only came across them through the roger dean art work on the octopus Lp 2 months ago. I now have 7 gentle giant LPs.V1 Comment
There are only a few progressive songs by the Scorpions. Only "Lonesome Crow", "Drifting Sun" and "Fly to the Rainbow".. But this song is great. Maybe not the best Prog song, but it should be much higher!
#39? Really? It should be #1!
Amazing song, needs to be higher
