Top Ten Best Progressive Rock Songs


The Contenders: Page 6

101 Fear of a Blank Planet - Porcupine Tree
102 In the Flesh? - Pink Floyd
103 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...

104 Sheep - Pink Floyd V 1 Comment
105 The Ministry of Lost Souls - Dream Theater
106 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!

107 The Lamia - Genesis
108 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

109 Incarnation of the Logos - Eloy

Epic song from the most underrated classic album...

110 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.

111 Xanadu - Rush
112 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.

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

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

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