Top Ten Best Progressive Rock Songs


The Contenders: Page 8

141 Miracles out of Nowhere - Kansas Miracles out of Nowhere - Kansas

One of the best progressive rock songs in the world performed by one of the best progressive bands ever! Never heard a better instrumental solo

142 The Carpet Crawlers - Genesis The Carpet Crawlers - Genesis
143 The Return of the Giant Hogweed - Genesis The Return of the Giant Hogweed - Genesis
144 Perpetual Change - Yes Perpetual Change - Yes
145 High Hopes - Pink Floyd High Hopes - Pink Floyd

Amazing song. It has a sinister start, then the chorus hits you with a flow of emotions. The escalation in the middle feels so empowering until the sinister verse hits back. After a second chorus, Gilmour's masterpiece of a solo will leave you in tears. - RalphSaad

A song with mood and pure beauty.

146 The Hand That Feeds You - Introitus The Hand That Feeds You - Introitus
147 Neverland - Marillion Neverland - Marillion

When recording the "V"-album, Neal Morse joked about the lyrics for "Revelation": "We're not supposed to sing about girls, because we're a prog band". Marillion clearly ignored this 'rule' and with "Neverland" they made the best lovesong ever.

148 Knights of Cydonia - Muse Knights of Cydonia - Muse
149 Hyperventilate - Frost Hyperventilate - Frost

I can't believe the band Frost is not on these lists, or that the songs: hyperventilate and milliontown are not included. For all the talk of atmosphere, musical arrangements, diversity, emotion, and taking you on a journey, etc; these songs have all of that and more. Milliontown deserves a spot as one of the greatest Prog Rock albums ever!

150 Afterglow - Genesis Afterglow - Genesis
151 Song of Scheherazade - Renaissance Song of Scheherazade - Renaissance
152 Gypsy - Uriah Heep Gypsy - Uriah Heep
153 New Day - Karnivool New Day - Karnivool

The best song I have ever heard to date, nothing even comes close to it.

154 Visions - Haken
155 East Coast Racer - Big Big Train East Coast Racer - Big Big Train
156 Terrapin Station - Grateful Dead Terrapin Station - Grateful Dead

Wonderful song.

After 40 years there is still something to discover. Some rise, some fall to get to Terrapin.
