Best Porcupine Tree Songs

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Halo

How can this track be 36?

Awesome from beginning to end! The instrumentation is perfect, it all blends together. The chorus is life though 😊 It is regularly stuck in my head and is a great song for running to. I mean, that guitar solo near the end is wicked! My dad introduced them to me and I've been listening ever since, and this song is a staple of not only their album Deadwing, but of their whole catalog. Definitely my favorite PT song, surprised it isn't higher.

42 Last Chance to Evacuate Planet Earth Before It Is Recycled

Absolutely one of the best Porcupine Tree songs in existence. Really guys, it's excellent if you haven't listened to it yet, do it right now. You won't be disappointed.

The transition of Shesmovedon into Last Chance to Evacuate Planet Earth Before It Is Recycled is so incredible that one song cannot be listened without the other. These two songs together form my favorite Porcupine Tree segment.

43 Don't Hate Me

This one must rated much higher than just 40 or something like that.
Come on, at least top 10 :)
Have you heard at this? It's simply astonishing.

Awesome! The lyrics are simply great poetry!

There is no don't hate me in the top 50 at least? What?
U guys aren't true pt fans :(

A masterpiece! By far the best from Stuoid Dream. The fiery sax solo leading into a space ambient section and those floydian verses. Even better live!

44 Stars Die

Clearly should be in the top 5. Their best song! It seems whoever is rating these songs only has listened to their newer albums, which is a shame. So many good songs on the older albums. One of the best uses of a audio sample in a song if not the best.

Just pure genius. Harmonics, lazy rolling drums, guitar work is just sublime. Pure soundscape music to lose yourself in complete with moon landing reference. Been a tree, Wilson, black field etc for years and love them all but this still rises above when I hear it.

Clearly, should be in the top 5.
Utterly surreal.

Top5 for sure

45 Pure Narcotic

Magnificent lyrics and music, Totally captivating, melancholic romantic song

Can't believe this is so low on the list...
For me this the most beautiful song of the band after Lazarus.

44? Seriously? This song would definitely be in my list of top 5 PT songs.

46 Lightbulb Sun

It's doesn't have any reviews?! what people, it's an amazing song!

Don't understand how this is not top ten!

Whats wrong with you people?
Its one of the best songs ever sung by PT.

47 The Creator Had a Mastertape

It's a pity that I had to add this song to the list. Evil is the word! Killer bass riff. Out-of-this-world guitar riffs and mind blowing lyrics.

I love this song! It sucks that few people realize the awesomeness of this Porcupine Tree song...

Very creepy lyrics. I love this edgy tune

Strangely addictive

48 The Rest Will Flow

Porcupine Tree's most beautiful song

First PT song I had heard.

49 A Smart Kid

I guess this song is about every smart kid around the world who got isolated just because they knew too much! Amazing lyrics and melody...

Such an underrated song. The guitar solo is so beautiful and awe-inspiring.

50 Fadeaway

How in the world can this song be so low? Top 10 is the least this song deserves. The lyrics, the slide guitar intro, the sheer serenity of the song; heavenly!

The best of porcupine tree...

The guitar intro takes me to a different world..
How can u people even ignore this song? It's a sin mates it's a sin

51 Nine Cats

Best song by them, beautiful rhythm, and the acoustic version is also simply amazing.

52 Waiting

Absolutely beautiful slide guitar! Heavenly song, truly a masterpiece.. I listen to it on loop daily..

Haunting. Gorgeous. First PT I heard, perhaps prejudiced by that fact, but definitely deserves higher placement.

53 Collapse the Light Into Earth

I cannot believe this song wasn't on the list.. I'm not saying its the BEST but truly deserves to be in the top ten.. It's so emotional that always makes me cry

Of acceptances and moving on. A mood for all those who loved and let it go.

54 Remember Me Lover

Dark, resentful and bitter. The perfect song to listen to if you're in the mood to brood, contemplate and reflect.

"I walked away, now remember me lover,
I told you lies, now remember me lover,
I took your money, remember me lover,
I ruined your life, now remember me lover"

Bitter lyrics with changing moods between metal and low key make this song unforgettable

How can you not love this song?

Seriously underrated. - hannanabdul55

55 Voyage 34 (Phase 1)

The most trippy song by porcupine... I'm surprised too see its not even listed in list... Are you guys even listen their tracks... According it should be in top 5

My ultimate high song, it's perfect, sounds a lot like Pink Floyd, surprised that it's #41 really unfair

56 Flicker

How is this not on the list? 20 minute masterpiece which conveys so many different emotions

57 Shallow

My favourite Porcupine Tree track. Words are deep yet easy. Intro rift is amazing. It is reminiscent of how lost and lonely we are in life in the big city around the world.

Most pump up song I know. really reminds me of Tool, great riffs. super confused why this is at 57 and open car is 16, this song definitely deserves its place.

58 Where We Would Be

Seriously? So under rated? This song depicts the musical genius of steven wilson and porcupine tree combined!

Beautiful piece indeed. - CosmicSea

59 Octane Twisted

This song is just beautiful. It starts with some beautiful acoustic guitar, than moves into some fantastic vocals, and lastly progresses into some startling guitar riffs. I can't believe I have to add it to this list.

The vocals at the start. Really brief, but full of sentimentalism.
