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!

One of my all time favorite songs!

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

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 Go Now!

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

5 The Other Side of Life

The best of moody blues..
What a number!

6 Question

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

To overrated

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

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 Melancholy Man

The national anthem of melancholy men.

The Contenders

11 The Voice

Fantastic song from Justin Hayward, the songwriter

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!

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

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

Top 5 in my opinion

14 Isn't Life Strange
15 Gypsy (of a Strange and Distant Time)

Already on the list.

16 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.

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.

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 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!

22 For My Lady

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

23 Are You Sitting Comfortably
24 King and Queen
25 Voices In the Sky
26 Had to Fall In Love

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

27 It's Up to You

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

28 In My World
29 Dawning Is the Day
30 Emily's Song
31 Gimme a Little Somethin'
32 Lovely to See You

Number 1 song

33 Blue World
34 Talking Out of Turn

Best Song on Long Distance Voyager - Epic song.

35 Driftwood
36 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!

37 I Dreamed Last Night
38 What Am I Doing Here?
39 The Swallow
40 Say What You Mean
41 Strange Times
42 Om
43 Foolish Love
44 How Is It (We Are Here)
45 The Actor

Should be much higher. - Rocketman5000

Brilliant song.

46 Meet Me Halfway
47 Steppin' in a Slide Zone

Haunting from the beginning, begins a pulse as an energy rocker from John Lodge.

48 Veteran Cosmic Rocker
49 It's Cold Outside of Your Heart
50 You Can Never Go Home
