Best The Moody Blues Songs

The Top Ten

1 Nights in White Satin

These guys are the best

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

The most beautiful Rock song ever written! My daughters father bride song at her Wedding! (Moodybluedude)

One of my all time favorite songs!

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

One of Johns best


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 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

5 Go Now!

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. - Crwth

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

Always my favourite MB song. - Britgirl

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

6 Question

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

Easily best song they ever did.

7 The Other Side of Life

The best of moody blues..
What a number!

8 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.

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...

9 Gemini Dream
10 The Voice

Fantastic song from Justin Hayward, the songwriter

The Newcomers

? All that is Real is You
? Celtic Sonant

The Contenders

11 Melancholy Man

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

The national anthem of melancholy men.

12 One More Time to Live

Evolutionary biology and psychology majors should listen to this one

13 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!

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.

14 Isn't Life Strange
15 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.

Just great.

16 Gypsy (of a Strange and Distant Time)

Already on the list.

17 Lost In a Lost World
18 Ride My See-Saw

Unbelievable this isn't much, much higher...One of their all-time best! - Rocketman5000

Great song with a driving rhythm. Makes you want to cruse.

First song I heard from the Moody Blues back in late 60's I think.

I voted for this because this is WAAYYY too low for this song.

19 Candle of Life

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

20 Sitting at the Wheel
21 For My Lady

Cannot believe this isn't in the Top 20. Beautiful song. - Rocketman5000

22 Are You Sitting Comfortably
23 Gypsy
24 King and Queen
25 Dawning Is the Day
26 Forever Autumn

One of my favourite songs. Should be at the top of the list with Nights in White Satin.

I can't believe this song isn't even listed.

Great Song!

27 Sooner or Later (Walkin' On Air)

Catchy and very uplifting, Justin, John and Ray did well together in a triple duet vocal resonation. I wish that song should have been a single sung by three members. Golly!

28 Eternity Road
29 Eyes of a Child
30 What Am I Doing Here?
31 It's Up to You

Great mellow rock tune it's not to long but just right.

32 The Swallow
33 Foolish Love
34 Out and In
35 Voices In the Sky
36 Gimme a Little Somethin'
37 Bless the Wings (That Bring You Back)

That song is really describing and not a moment too soon, it's very unique and beautiful in all its listening. Don't care if one person thinks that it's depressing.

38 Driftwood
39 Had to Fall In Love

Acoustic and beautiful song from the superior craftsmanship of the Moodies.
