Best Boston Songs


The Top Ten

1 More Than a Feeling

Best song ever written, I get goose bumps whenever I hear it. It really has great meaning and makes me feel great about life!

This song cheers me up. - Userguy44

Oh my god its such a POWERFUL song. - fireinside96

More Than a Feeling is the world's greatest song. I'ill crank it all day long all over my block. - Aquateenhungerforce

2 Peace of Mind

Incredible song; better than more than a feeling in my opinion.This song is very memorable

"Peace of Mind" is my all time favorite song!

This song is really good. I enjoy the acoustic entry and the solos. And also great vocals/singing.

In my opinion, "Peace of Mind" is the best Boston song.

3 Foreplay / Long Time

No other song even comes close. A true hard rock masterpiece, Brad Delps vocals are extraordinary, the guitar is powerful and the solos are absolutely killer and the keyboard is other-worldly. I wish it were twice as long.

Tied with more than a feeling, this is my all time favorite song. I love how the organ, Acoustic and electric guitars, drums, and Brad Delp's voice combine to make the greatest songs of all time!

No contest. There is nothing that should be ahead of this song, except for More Than A Feeling. This has to be number two though.

Just pure craftsmanship in this song. I can truly see the time and effort Tom and his friends put in to this song. Absolutely Great!

4 Don't Look Back

I like Long Time, Don't Look Back, and More Than a Feeling all about the same. Favorites tunes of all time. This is a very positive and uplifting tune. Love it!

It's a really awesome song that I first heard on the show supernatural.. Has really good vocals and the music is just amazing.. I especially liked the guitar riff in this...

The most uplifting song I've ever heard.

Still get goosebumps every time I listen to this heavenly track. Guitar is killer!

8 A Man I'll Never Be

Sexy guitar! I love boston and this should be in top 5. The song has so much meaning to it and the guitar will make your neck hairs shiver!

One of the most underrated songs EVER! It is beautiful!

One of the only songs to give me goosebumps. A deep, meaningful song with absolutely incredible guitar work by Tom Scholz. Excellent

This song has such a complementary bass line to the awesome guitar work. Awesome song!

9 Something About You

This song gets me pumped up the most out of any Boston song. Even the slow and quiet intro could get anybody interested in what this one has to offer. Would put this as number 3 if I made a top ten list, following "Peace of Mind" at 1 and then "Foreplay/Long Time" at 2.

This should definitely be top 10. You can feel the guitar, not just hear it. There is something about this song that makes it amazing. It's great. It's amazing. It's the best. - reddy4u2

Love this song plead vote this one up great guitar beat bass singing and drumming

All of Boston's songs are great, but Something About You is by far, in my opinion, the best of them all to be cranked up loud,

10 Amanda

Super - duper ballad.

Amazing song! Love it! I can listen to this song again and again and not get bored! It should be number 3 just after More Than a Feeling and Peace of Mind!

This song have to be in top 5 please

Needs to be a top 5.

The Contenders

11 Hitch a Ride

Get this higher! Best one!

12 Feelin' Satisfied

Just a great rocker!

Absolutely powerful. The way the guitar builds up, especially at the end, combined with the lyrics makes this one of the best rock anthems you could ever hear.

How is this song not in the top 10!? It's just charged up! Love it!

Incredible guitar after the first chorus. Classic Boston.

15 Surrender to Me

What an awesome yet underrated song. The guitars are perfect and it really shows off Fran's voice, which, while not quite as good as Brad's, is pretty awesome!

The most underrated song of all time. A true piece of art.

16 Didn't Mean to Fall In Love


17 We're Ready

Guitar solo...just too perfect. It's a shame this didn't rank higher; so much is missed. At the end the acoustic guitar fade-out always makes me sad for some reason, but in a good way!

UListen to Sample
18 Can'tcha Say (You Believe in Me) / Still in Love

Awesome song. Just great transitions

The bridge of this song really does make you want to cry. Once you hear it, all of your past glorious moments just come flooding back to you, and then you fall in love with the song.

Can'tcha Say (You'll Vote for Me)/Still in Love with this Song!

A great and beautiful Suite!

19 What's Your Name

I'll say this: it's a little poppy, but it drives a beautiful bargain. From the beautiful lyrics to the strong guitar bridge it surely is worth hearing.

20 Hollyann

While this might not be as beautiful as Amanda (and that's a high benchmark) the lyrics are so much more inspiring. This song makes me dream

Gotta be Top 5. You CAN'T be a Boston fan and not rank Hollyann in the top 5. You just can't...period.

In my opinion tops Amanda in every way. Acoustic guitar riff is much better than simply strumming chords. The merge into electric gives me chills every time. Listen if you don't believe me. Very underrated song.

This song gets me every time and for me is the stand out track on Third Stage. The transition from acoustic to electric and the change of pace during the track is so uplifting. This should be much higher on this list.

What? No one here likes to "Party? "

Party is the best!

22 I Had a Good Time

A great Boston tune, with a sad and contemporary feel, like the end of something good. The end of Delp's run with this legendary band.

Brad Delp's last really good Boston song.

As more people hear this song, it'll continue to move up the list which is incredible considering the iconic songs ahead of it.

True that!

Best Boston song

35 Cool the Engines

Why is this so low? This is a driving song that feels like listening to "Feelin Satisfied or "Rock and Roll Band". The whole song is exceptionally catchy. Top 3 on Third Stage for sure.

Driving song that is my fave from "Third Stage", should have ranked in the first 10!

On the Greatest Hits but not on this list...

Under rated!

39 The Star Spangled Banner/4th of July Reprise

By far the most Summer filled Boston song I've ever heard. If you ever need a nice son on Summer vacation to get you in the spirit, it's this one.

By far the best version. Scholz really plays it well and I'm in love with the part titled 4th of July.
