Best The Moody Blues Songs


The Top Ten

1 Nights in White Satin

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

These guys are the best

One of my all time favorite songs!

Without a doubt an absolute classic.
No question about it.

2 The Other Side of Life
3 Your Wildest Dreams

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!

4 I'm Just a Singer (In a Rock & Roll Band)

One of Johns best


5 I Know You're Out There Somewhere

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.

6 Go Now!

This song really means something to me but it's unfortunate that it isn't more popular. - Beatlesboy9

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

7 The Story in Your Eyes

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. - Billyv

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

13 One More Time to Live

Evolutionary biology and psychology majors should listen to this one

14 Talking Out of Turn
15 Tuesday Afternoon (Forever Afternoon)

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

16 Isn't Life Strange
17 Haunted
18 In My World
19 Gypsy (of a Strange and Distant Time)

Already on the list.

20 Legend of a Mind

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

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.

One cannot help but think of San Francisco and the Haight /Asbury district when listening to this song. Hearing it brings back EVERYTHING about the summer of love - the sights (and sites), the SOUNDS, the bustle and street performers, even the smells of incense in the air. This song epitomizes and defines 1960s in S.F. I was lucky enough to meet Timothy Leary there in 1988 -- I'll never forget it. And this song played in the back of my mind while we chatted.
