Best The Moody Blues Songs

The Top Ten

1 Nights in White Satin Nights in White Satin Cover Art

These guys are the best

Probably the most popular song, it is iconic and immediately delves you into memories!

One of my all time favorite songs!

My favorite song, of all time, by anyone. Period.

2 The Story in Your Eyes The Story in Your Eyes Cover Art

Their albums from Days of Future Passed thru Seventh Sojourn were their best works. Brilliant album art as well. Leaving them out of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is nonsense, ridiculous, illogical and insulting.

From their most mature creative period. Straight ahead rock, not vapid blue jays stuff that came later.

Just awesome. Get goose bumps every time I hear it!

My favorite, and I agree about the first albums through Seventh Sojourn

3 I'm Just a Singer (In a Rock & Roll Band) I'm Just a Singer (In a Rock & Roll Band) Cover Art

One of Johns best


4 Your Wildest Dreams Your Wildest Dreams Cover Art

I like to think "Your Wildest Dreams" will be adored by generations to come, much as I and many others in my generation adore this song. And I'm sure there are others who agree with me that this mere pop song rates as transcendent art.

I love all their songs but this one means a great deal to me personally.

My mom was always a huge Moody Blues fan and I was always happiest when this song came on. Still one of my favorites

So very recognizable and beautiful! Fills me with happiness and smiles!

5 Question Question Cover Art

Wonderful lyrics combined with powerful vocals truly deliver a fantastic experience. In one word a masterpiece

Easily best song they ever did.

Question was their very best

6 Go Now! Go Now! Cover Art

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, my friends. But how insulting it is to the band, and us their fans, to rate this early, kitschy cover song above all of the superlative, beautiful masterpieces done by the classical Moody Blues thereafter.

This song really means something to me but it's unfortunate that it isn't more popular.

Always my favourite MB song.

Denny Laine makes this song. Big loss for the Moodies after he left

7 I Know You're Out There Somewhere I Know You're Out There Somewhere Cover Art

One of their noteworthy songs and like Your Wildest Dreams. The tune is a memo-rising reserve to its meaning and always listen to it a lot.

This certainly ranks above "Your Wildest Dreams". Certainly higher then The Other Side of Life.

No, it actually doesn't. The lower list numbers rank higher, and the other 2 songs have been given those positions on this list. - Billyv

A great song...

8 Eternity Road Eternity Road Cover Art
9 The Other Side of Life The Other Side of Life Cover Art

The best of moody blues..
What a number!

10 What Am I Doing Here? What Am I Doing Here? Cover Art

The Contenders

11 Gemini Dream Gemini Dream Cover Art
12 The Voice The Voice Cover Art

Fantastic song from Justin Hayward, the songwriter

13 Melancholy Man Melancholy Man Cover Art

One of the saddest, most depressing songs, yet one of the most beautiful ever.. just brilliant

Best song of them, very emotional vocal, such a powerful guitar and good back vocalists

The national anthem of melancholy men.

14 One More Time to Live One More Time to Live Cover Art

Evolutionary biology and psychology majors should listen to this one

15 Are You Sitting Comfortably Are You Sitting Comfortably Cover Art
16 Tuesday Afternoon (Forever Afternoon) Tuesday Afternoon (Forever Afternoon) Cover Art

The music & lyrics of the Moody Blues songs are some of the most beautiful & meaningful ever written. They still sound amazing live, too!

It's a beautiful song, best is long album version

Really people. This has been a clear cut 1 or 2 for 30 years

Beautiful song. Easily in the top three.

17 The Swallow The Swallow Cover Art
18 Out and In Out and In Cover Art
19 Isn't Life Strange Isn't Life Strange Cover Art
20 Legend of a Mind Legend of a Mind Cover Art

This song is just perfect - psychedelic, with amazing flute solo, very dreamy and upbeat, just, well ya know, just fantastic!

The moment that the other instruments come in following the flute solo is beyond belief!

The depth of this composition is unsurpassed in the Moody Blues catalogue. Ray Thomas, with his songwriting, flute, and soprano vocals has written a masterpiece.

Just great.

21 Candle of Life Candle of Life Cover Art

Just listen to it again... poetic and a really good feeling.

22 Eyes of a Child Eyes of a Child Cover Art
23 Gypsy (of a Strange and Distant Time)

Already on the list.
