Best Supertramp Songs


The Top Ten

1 The Logical Song The Logical Song


Just fantastic. Listen to it over and over. You can't get enough of it..

This used to be my favourite song as a child, I just love it, it's still of my favourites of all time, Supertramp is probably the most underrated band of all time. - Nintendonix

2 Goodbye Stranger Goodbye Stranger

Only with time have I really appreciated how great this song is. Wonderful melodies and the lyrics are more punk rock than the punk and new wave bands around at the same time. Only difference is this still sounds great years later...

Simply a masterpiece. So catchy, I find myself singing it for hours after I listen to it. Most definitely one of Supertramp's best!

From a song-crafting perspective, their best song. Better hook than even the Logical Song. Davies' keyboard is amazing

Has an almost haunting atmosphere, with great lyrics and a very solemn mood.

3 School School

Best song from supertramp! This song represent progressive rock at his best. So much intensity through all the song. From the beginning till the end, everything is different.

The progression of the song, and the different use of instruments is outstanding. Really reminds me of childhood, the song definitely makes you reminisce

One of the best off the best album

The progression, simply, the progression. So good!

4 Fool's Overture Fool's Overture

There are so many incredible parts to this song. The writers must have been incredible inspired. I listened to this song all my life but only recently realized how complex it is. Good job Roger et al!

What a genius is Roger Hodgson. Seriously this song makes me feel so many things. Probably the most beautiful song ever composed, and has so many different elements going for it, it is the best supertramp composition ever in my opinion.

Just the best song ever, no more words

5 Take the Long Way Home Take the Long Way Home

One of their best songs, great harmonica intro! - The_Acid_Queen

The overall feel of this song is fantastic. Definitely the best, maybe tied with the Logical Song

This song, might be the greatest song of all time.

By far the best ever song involving a harmonica

6 From Now On From Now On

Beautiful, just beautiful. The ending chorus is powerful with Rodger Hodgson absolutely killing it. I cannot express how great this song is. I recommend it to everyone.

The ending part to this song is my favorite part to a song ever, amazing all around!

8 Bloody Well Right Bloody Well Right

One of the heaviest! And one of the best too! That guitar riff is too damn powerful. I really love this song.

This one definitely has the best guitar of any supertramp song, by far.

It's definitely got the best guitar of any Supertramp song out there.

Some awesome saxophone playing in this song? Bloody well right! - PetSounds

9 Give a Little Bit Give a Little Bit

A little tired of this one, but still classic -

The greatest song of this monday

Just perfect metric, melody
A simple good poetry

No way someone is speaking pish?

10 Crime of the Century Crime of the Century

Child of Vision also has a fantastic instrumental, but Crime of the Century has an instrumental that is perfectly coordinated, insightful, entrancing, and overall the best orchestration of instruments imaginable. Even just listening closely enough to the simple piano part, you can hear it in two slightly different rhythms. The lyrics are golden too.

Best song on a great album.. and Bloody Well Right, School and Hide In your Shell are great too.. which means this song is well, underrated.

Absoulutely one of their greatest songs ever made! How this powerful amazing song isn't higher on the list than number 9 is shocking to say the least!

Not every day do you here lyrics like "will they rape the universe

13 Hide In Your Shell Hide In Your Shell

As a lifelong Supertramp fan - own every album - I'd say it's a tie between Hide in Your Shell and Take the Long Way Home for #1. The live version of Hide in Your Shell on Paris is incredible.

It's my having a baby song. Really draws you in and then builds up to a crescendo. Makes me cry too... Such feeling and tremendous emotion, makes me forget everything else.

Rich and dense music, with great lyrics, does not deserve to reside above rank 5 and so I 'll vote for it...

So many levels to this song= was blessed to meet roger recently and told him I always loved the emotions this song brings!

14 Lover Boy Lover Boy
15 Even In the Quietest Moments Even In the Quietest Moments
16 Child of Vision Child of Vision

The second half of the song is honestly one of the most perfect arrangements in music. The piano solo, the groove and the melody just fit so perfectly. Definitely a contender in the most underrated songs of all time.

Completely underrated song. One of the most complete songs and one of my Supertramp favorites!

One of my favorite songs of all time.

17 If Everyone Was Listening
18 Another Man's Women Another Man's Women
19 It's Raining Again It's Raining Again

This one and The Logical Song have the best Sax, no question. This one is also uplifting in a surprisingly pessimistic way, which makes it really have a fine emotional weight to it. If something bad happens, don't let it get you down.

It's a top 5 for me, surprised it's so low on list
