Top Ten Dream Theater Songs


The Contenders: Page 5XW

81A New Beginning

One of the, if not the best song on the new album. Wish they could've had more lyrics in it and made it around 10 minutes or longer but it's a blast to listen to

I do agree, probably one of the best songs in the new double LP

Fresh, Progressive, Insane and beauty at the same time

82Wait for Sleep

Why has everybody forgotten the smooth touch and the divine quality of sound rendered to our ears in the early 90's by Kevin Moore through by DT?

OK, so its basically a mini-DT song compared to their greatest like Octavarium, Under a Glass Moon, Pull Me Under, Metropolis Part 1, and the Count of Tuscany, but its a fantastic song from Kevin Moore's piano part to LaBrie's vocals, its a great song

83Lines in the Sand

This song kind of passed by me when listening to Falling into Infinity for the first time, but then, the 1st time I see DT live they play it and wow, I was so blown away by the epic keyboard intro and the build up to which isn't the most technical solo ever, but Petrucci's most 'hit the nail with every single damn note' solo of 'em all. Labrie at the best I've heard him as well. Everlasting goosebumps throughout the whole song. Come on who's with me? You know what I'm talking about.

This is a spectacular song and the highlight of Falling Into Infinity. Dug Pinnick's guest vocals bring some soul which Dream Theater songs usually lack.

?... Why is this song not even listed?
It's a classic... Best song my far on the FII album. The musical interlude soars in this song... Send a chill up your spine? It's my favorite DT song along with Octavarium. I just can't believe how many dodgy songs are in the top 80... But this isn't listed!

85The Gift of Music

Amazing single, has that Rush sound in Chorus and Verse. Amazing guitar solo, and crazy breakdown.

The best track on the album it is on. - Powerfultekin

89The Silent Man

Great atmosphere and pretty simple structure. The chorus melody is just epic, also thinking of the Erotomania solo. Should be way up to the top.

90Anna Lee

It's beautiful and sad and gentle. I love their ballads. This is one of my favourite songs of theirs'.

91Acid Rain

For the all fans of Dream Theatre band, please listen this song..! It will make you look like so handsome!

92This Is the Life

I don't know why this song is so low on the list. For me this is the best song from latest album. So emotional, amazing solos, great lyrics.

Beautiful song, amazing lyricism and musicianship, off the newest album but deserves a much higher place

Life begins with an empty slate
Fragile left in the hands of fate
Driven by love and crushed by hate
Until the day
The gift is gone
And shadows remain

Not more to say!


Best song from "When Dream & Day Unite" - TrappedInsideIt

Just started listening to this album and I'm still not sure why it's rated so low; With songs Afterlife, Ytse jam, and killing hand, it is in my top 5 DT albums for sure.

94Act of Faythe

Most beautiful song from their new album

95Begin Again
97Power Down

This makes me cry that it's at #99... A phenomenal solo, and the voice samples are very touching. It may be radically different from any other song in the 12-step suite, but that's not a bad thing at all. It's a great piece of music, as is pretty much any Dream Theater song.

Just an outstanding solo.. and the voice samples that lead into it, are climactically emotional.

99A Mind Beside Itself
100False Awakening Suite
