Top Ten Best Progressive Rock Songs


The Contenders: Page 6

101 Sheep - Pink Floyd V 1 Comment
102 The Ministry of Lost Souls - Dream Theater
103 Vicarious - Tool

Why is this song so low?!
I've early heard it for the first time today and it's one of my favourites!

104 Look Into the Future - Journey

This is a hood song, and it is Prog. This is journey before Infinity and they fame. This is early Journey, which is just as good as their famous stuff

105 Incarnation of the Logos - Eloy

Epic song from the most underrated classic album...

106 Journey from Mariabronn - Kansas

This is a great song from a very underrated band. If you only have listened to their radio hits, then you are missing out. Definitely a prog masterpiece.

107 Eyes of a Stranger - Queensryche
108 July Morning - Uriah Heep

Why is this not on the list? It is an absolutely fantastic song with beautiful melodies and instrumental parts.

This song pioneered the use of synthesizer (the moog) to be accepted by prog rock bands ever since; it pointed in a new direction where artists/muscians/rockers could travel.

109 No Quarter - Led Zeppelin
110 Happiness is a Warm Gun - The Beatles
111 Folklore - Big Big Train
112 Pictures of a City - King Crimson
113 Stream of Consciousness - Dream Theater

They are called gods of prog metal for this kind of songs. Amazing!

114 Absinthe and Rue - Symphony X
115 Sever - Porcupine Tree
116 Never Let Go - Camel V 2 Comments
117 Deadman - Karnivool V 1 Comment
118 Ritual - Yes
119 The Fountain of Salmacis - Genesis

Best song on Nursery Cryme, which is sorely underappreciated within the Genesis catalogue. Yes, even better than Musical Box, which is great in its own right. Should be at least top 50, if not higher.

120 In Held 'Twas In I - Procol Harum
