101 Normal - Porcupine Tree

GREAT progressive rock song from this classic progressive rock band. They are the forefather of progressive rock. Please listen once. It deserves higher position...

The best prog ever written and nothing close can ever be written again...
Porcupine Tree gets on your brains and nerves and makes you wanna listen to this like a trillion times non-stop...

102 Sheep - Pink Floyd V 1 Comment
103 The Ministry of Lost Souls - Dream Theater
104 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!

105 The Lamia - Genesis
106 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

107 Incarnation of the Logos - Eloy

Epic song from the most underrated classic album...

108 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.

109 Eyes of a Stranger - Queensryche
110 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.

111 Happiness is a Warm Gun - The Beatles
112 Folklore - Big Big Train
113 Pictures of a City - King Crimson
114 Stream of Consciousness - Dream Theater

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

115 Absinthe and Rue - Symphony X
116 Sever - Porcupine Tree
117 Never Let Go - Camel V 2 Comments
118 Deadman - Karnivool V 1 Comment
119 Ritual - Yes
120 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.
