The Contenders: Page 11

201 Jerry Was a Race Car Driver - Primus
202 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

Not really a prog rock song. Its just long. - zxm


203 November Rain - Guns N' Roses
204 Estranged - Guns N' Roses

Not prog by any means

205 Kashmir - Led Zeppelin
206 Swim to the Moon - Between the Buried and Me V 1 Comment
207 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.

208 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.

209 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.

210 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.
