Top Ten Best Progressive Rock Songs


The Contenders: Page 10

181 Xanadu - Rush
182 Movin' On - Circus
183 Jordrök - Änglagård

Incredible that no one except me votes this song

184 Tetragrammaton - The Mars Volta

I'm pretty sure they classify as pseudo-prog so here ya go

185 Rudy - Supertramp
186 From Now On - Supertramp
187 Yours Is No Disgrace - Yes

Amazing prog rock song. One of the best of its time.

188 The Seventh House - I.Q.

Awesome lyrics and epic ending!

189 Rings of Earthly Light - Eris Pluvia

Very good use of wind instruments. The section with the female vocalist adds drama to the story of this 17min epic... Too bad Eris Pluvia only released 2 albums...

190 Devil's Playground - Flower Kings

The fretless bass solo is simply stunning!

191 Jerry Was a Race Car Driver - Primus
192 November Rain - Guns N' Roses
193 Estranged - Guns N' Roses

Not prog by any means

194 Swim to the Moon - Between the Buried and Me V 1 Comment
195 The Fall of the House of Usher - Alan Parson's Project

Why is this song so low? It's a great progressive song from their first album.

196 A Saucerful of Secrets - Pink Floyd

One of their best early instrumentals. It paved the way for their later masterpieces. The song is devided into four sections. 1) "Something Else" is very spacy with strange sounds, 2) "Syncopated Pandemonium" consists of an improvisation over a drum-loop. 3) "Storm Signal" and 4) "Celestial Voices" are very melodic and a big contrast to the first parts.
It's a song you have to listen multiple times, but it's worth it. One of the best Floyd instrumentals.

197 Lonesome Crow - Scorpions

13-minutes long and one of their few progressive songs. The instrumental parts and exspecially the guitar work of Michael Schenker is amazing.

198 We'll Burn the Sky - Scorpions

Starts as a ballad, but leads in to a heavy, but still melodic rock song. It is only about 6 and half minutes long, but still very complex and the guitar work of Uli Roth at the end is amazing.
