41 10,000 Days (Wings Part 2) - Tool
42 A Change of Seasons - Dream Theater

I never get tired of listening to this amazing epic!

45 Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd

It's made by Pink Floyd, but it's probably their LEAST prog song, amazing song though

This song is beauty incarnate. everything about it is perfect

A lot less of prog, but nonetheless amazing. - naFrovivuS

Not the best, but really should be higher.

46 Still Life - Van Der Graaf Generator
47 The March of the Black Queen - Queen

QUEEN - The greatest band in the universe! All their repertoire is phenomenal, and this song is absolutely MAGNIFICENT! Queen's hits are super, but their hidden gems are a treasure trove of sheer ecstasy! An excursion into auditory bliss!

I love Queen so I'm going with this one.

This is a great song, but not prog. - Pony

48 The Poet/After the Day - Barclay James Harvest

The Poet segues seamlessly into After The Day, and the band usually play them in sequence. Together they demonstrate extremely well what BJH were all about - initially a gentle, folky, melodic song but leading into a dramatic tour de force complete with soaring mellotron and crashing guitar crescendo. Never fails to produce that special tingle-factor - but then so do many of their other songs, and the standard being so uniformly high, everyone will no doubt have a different favourite.

The definitive prog rock classic from BJH's early years - the climax never fails to get the spine tingling!

49 Ice - Camel

Maybe in ten top of camel

Great instrumental song

50 Take Me On and On - Electric Light Orchestra
51 La Villa Strangiato - Rush V 2 Comments
52 Hotel California - The Eagles
53 Right in Two - Tool
54 Aqualung - Jethro Tull

One of my favorite Jethro Tull song with heavy horses!

My hobby is going far ^^ wide to Jethro Tull concerts, over 200.

55 The Cinema Show - Genesis

A wonderful epic song with its harmonious acoustic beginning and engulfing keyboard solo under an amazing bass and drum rhythm. To be listened to attentively eyes closed... Thank you Genesis for this masterpiece :-)

One of the most beautful song from the album Selling England By the Pound, by the way, the full album is fantastic.

What in the world is this song doing at #57? Should be top 10 easily!

Huge and influetial

56 Lizard - King Crimson V 1 Comment
57 Nimrodel - The Procession - The White Rider - Camel

This song is just wonderful! It's about a Tolkien-esque story about knights and strange creatures, and it's a good occasion for master Andy Latimer on guitar an d flutes, wizard Peter Bardens on keyboards, powerful and precise Andy Ward on drums and dynamic Doug Ferguson on bass, to show their bright talents.

58 Nights in White Satin - The Moody Blues

The Moody Blues second greatest prog rock band in the world pure melodic rock
Pink are first supertramp third.. Barclay james harvest fourth renaissence fifth

59 Heart of the Sunrise - Yes

Amazing song, needs to be higher

60 A Script for a Jester's Tear - Marillion

This song make me cry! It's so beautifull! Fish voice brings me to heaven, and Rothery's guitar solos do even better! If you don't know it, go quickly listen to this masterpiece (this is the word)!

I've already voted for 2112, but this song should be at least Top 20

Inspired heavily by the likes of Camel and Genesis, Marillion is one of my favorite bands. I would recommend the song "Grendel" which was their answer to "Supper's Ready"

!
People actually know about marillion!
I'm going to find everyone who voted for this and take selfies with them!
