Top Ten Best Progressive Rock Songs


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Metropolis, Part 1: the Miracle and the Sleeper - Dream Theater

I'm not going to go on about how one of my favourite songs didn't get in the top ten, but I will say that this inspired an entire concept album, and many of you should go and see for yourself just how great it is to be able to do this!

82 Cassandra Gemini - The Mars Volta Cassandra Gemini - The Mars Volta
83 Ommadawn, Part One - Mike Oldfield Ommadawn, Part One - Mike Oldfield

86 Deliverance - Opeth Deliverance - Opeth

Very progressive music with a lot of different soft and hard parts.

You deaf idiots you put all the garbage on top and OPETH at 55 go check your ears.

87 Song for America - Kansas Song for America - Kansas

I'm shocked as to how many prog fans don't know that Kansas is progressive, explaining why this song is often left out of "Top 10 prog songs" lists. It's a must-have song for any progressive rock fan.

Musical genius... This song showcases Kerry Livgren's composing skill and each member's skill on their perspective instruments without a hint of flashiness. This is Livgren's finest composition and deserves to be remembered as one of the greatest progressive rock songs of all time.

88 Flying - Anathema Flying - Anathema

This songs is fantastic one of the best last 4min songs ever.

One the best songs I have ever heard :((

89 The Spirit of Radio - Rush The Spirit of Radio - Rush V 1 Comment
90 Fear of a Blank Planet - Porcupine Tree Fear of a Blank Planet - Porcupine Tree
91 In the Flesh? - Pink Floyd In the Flesh? - Pink Floyd
92 Goodbye Stranger - Supertramp Goodbye Stranger - Supertramp

There are a lot of Supertramp's prog rock songs too much better than this... "Fool's overture", "Crime of the century", "Babaji", "A soapbox opera", "Gone Hollywood", "Try again", "Waiting so long", etc...

Finally, a Supertramp song! And it's not even their proggiest. "Fool's Overture" should be included in the top 20 in my opinion. - PetSounds

93 Normal - Porcupine Tree Normal - Porcupine Tree

GREAT progressive rock song from this classic progressive rock band. They are the forefather of progressive rock. Please listen once. It deserves higher position...

The best prog ever written and nothing close can ever be written again...
Porcupine Tree gets on your brains and nerves and makes you wanna listen to this like a trillion times non-stop...

94 Sheep - Pink Floyd Sheep - Pink Floyd V 1 Comment
95 The Ministry of Lost Souls - Dream Theater The Ministry of Lost Souls - Dream Theater
96 Vicarious - Tool

Why is this song so low?!
I've early heard it for the first time today and it's one of my favourites!

97 Look Into the Future - Journey Look Into the Future - Journey

This is a hood song, and it is Prog. This is journey before Infinity and they fame. This is early Journey, which is just as good as their famous stuff

98 Incarnation of the Logos - Eloy Incarnation of the Logos - Eloy

Epic song from the most underrated classic album...

99 Journey from Mariabronn - Kansas Journey from Mariabronn - Kansas

This is a great song from a very underrated band. If you only have listened to their radio hits, then you are missing out. Definitely a prog masterpiece.
