Best The Moody Blues Songs

The Top Ten

1 Nights in White Satin Nights in White Satin Cover Art

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)

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

"Letters I've written, never meaning to send."...

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.

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

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

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.

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!

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

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

This is how I knew the Moody Blues in the mid 60s. Such a great tune for that time in my life. What a shock to find out that this was same band that came out with Days of Future Passed.

The transformation gave me instant respect and loyalty to one of my favorite groups.

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.

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.

A great song...

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

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

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

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!

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

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

Beautiful song. Easily in the top three.

17 The Swallow The Swallow Cover Art
18 Isn't Life Strange Isn't Life Strange Cover Art

My all-time fave song by the Moodies. Very moving.

19 Out and In Out and In Cover Art
20 Legend of a Mind Legend of a Mind Cover Art

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.

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.

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!

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.
