Top Ten Best Progressive Rock Songs


The Contenders: Page 4

61 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

62 Lizard - King Crimson V 1 Comment
63 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.

64 Lateralus - Tool

9 and a half minutes of sheer bliss. One of my Favorite songs this century.

How come this one not be in the top 10?

How come this one not be number 1?

Come on! Why is this 9 and a half minute masterpiece so low. It deserves at least to be in the top 5

65 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

66 The Count of Tuscany - Dream Theater

The Count of Tuscany is dream theaters best song in my opinion. In the 19 minutes of this songs it all leads up to the beautiful ending that still gives me goosebumps every time

67 Heart of the Sunrise - Yes

Amazing song, needs to be higher

68 In the Flesh? - Pink Floyd
69 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!

70 Man-Erg - Van Der Graaf Generator

Van der Graaf Generator on its best, the best song on Pawn Hearts, a very strong album. The epic crazy middle section, and the cacaphonic section, and Peters Voice on top of that. Absolutely a great song!

71 The Advent of Panurge - Gentle Giant

This (and lots of other Gentle Giant) is brilliant and should be higher but not well known enough

If you like Yes,Jethro tull,king crimson,ELP,Queen and Pink Floyd this band has elements of all of them but they still come out with a unique sound.Only came across them through the roger dean art work on the octopus Lp 2 months ago. I now have 7 gentle giant LPs.

72 Hey You - Pink Floyd
73 School - Supertramp
74 Fly to the Rainbow - Scorpions

There are only a few progressive songs by the Scorpions. Only "Lonesome Crow", "Drifting Sun" and "Fly to the Rainbow".. But this song is great. Maybe not the best Prog song, but it should be much higher!

75 Another Brick in the Wall Pt. 1
76 Money - Pink Floyd

Not prog at all - patrickfloyd

I'll say it's likely the least progressive song on DSOTM. - naFrovivuS

77 Question - The Moody Blues
78 The Psychedelic Warlords - Hawkwind
79 Locomotive Breath - Jethro Tull
80 Interstellar Overdrive - Pink Floyd
