Top Ten Best Progressive Rock Songs


The Contenders: Page 6XW

101Goodbye Stranger - Supertramp

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

102Stream of Consciousness - Dream Theater

They are called gods of prog metal for this kind of songs. Amazing!

103Absinthe and Rue - Symphony X
104Sever - Porcupine Tree
105Never Let Go - CamelV2 Comments
106Deadman - KarnivoolV1 Comment
107Ritual - Yes
108The Fountain of Salmacis - Genesis

Best song on Nursery Cryme, which is sorely underappreciated within the Genesis catalogue. Yes, even better than Musical Box, which is great in its own right. Should be at least top 50, if not higher.

109In Held 'Twas In I - Procol Harum
110The Lamia - Genesis
111Stockholm Syndrome - Muse
112Can You Understand - Renaissance
113A Passion Play - Jethro Tull

This should be Higher, MUCH higher. It's a REALLY good song and in my opinion, it's better than it's companion album/song thick as a brick

114Oniket Prantor - Artcell

What an album! Love all the songs... specially the 16 minutes title track..

115Cygnus X-1 Book II: Hemispheres - RushV1 Comment
116Breaking the Spell - Pendragon
117Cygnus X-1 Book I: The Voyage - Rush

Its One Of The Best Rush Songs Ever Written

118Ocean Gypsy - Renaissance

Ocean Gypsy is by far the most haunting, of Renaisance's songs. Although there are days when Carpet of the Sun or Ashes are Burning top it, this is the song I most often sing or listen to when I need a Renaissance fix. Just barely edges out Firth of Fifth by Genesis, as well.

119Numb - Linkin Park

Really cool song and has made A LOT OF PROGRESS

120Ants of the Sky - Between the Buried and Me

I was just shocked this wasn't in the list, the best progressive metal song ever. it might be too heavy for some people but in my opinion, this is heaven.
it has everything you want in a metal song, everything. - Mcflupy
