Best The Moody Blues Songs


The Top Ten

1 Nights in White Satin

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

Best song in year - kedibey

Mama y good times listening to them love them

These guys are the best

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

Always my favourite MB song. - Britgirl

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

6 Question

Easily best song they ever did.

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

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 Melancholy Man

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

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)

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

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

Top 5 in my opinion

Beautiful song. Easily in the top three.

14 Isn't Life Strange
15 Legend of a Mind

Just great.

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.

16 Gypsy (of a Strange and Distant Time)

Already on the list.

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

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

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

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

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 Dawning Is the Day
25 King and Queen
26 Foolish Love
27 Voices In the Sky
28 Had to Fall In Love

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

29 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!

30 What Am I Doing Here?
31 It's Up to You

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

34 Strange Times

Agreed. One of their best.

Number 1 song
