Top Ten Best Progressive Rock Songs


The Contenders: Page 7

121 Can You Understand - Renaissance
122 A Passion Play - Jethro Tull

This should be Higher, MUCH higher. It's a REALLY good song and in my opinion, it's better than it's companion album/song thick as a brick

123 Oniket Prantor - Artcell

What an album! Love all the songs... specially the 16 minutes title track..

124 Cygnus X-1 Book II: Hemispheres - Rush V 1 Comment
125 I Am the Sun, Pt. 1 - The Flower Kings
126 Xanadu - Rush
127 Fool's Overture - Supertramp
128 Crime of the Century - Supertramp
129 Breaking the Spell - Pendragon
130 Cygnus X-1 Book I: The Voyage - Rush

Its One Of The Best Rush Songs Ever Written

131 Innuendo - Queen
132 Ocean Gypsy - Renaissance

Ocean Gypsy is by far the most haunting, of Renaisance's songs. Although there are days when Carpet of the Sun or Ashes are Burning top it, this is the song I most often sing or listen to when I need a Renaissance fix. Just barely edges out Firth of Fifth by Genesis, as well.

133 Numb - Linkin Park

Not progressive. Not even the slightest. - naFrovivuS

Really cool song and has made A LOT OF PROGRESS

134 Ants of the Sky - Between the Buried and Me

I was just shocked this wasn't in the list, the best progressive metal song ever. it might be too heavy for some people but in my opinion, this is heaven.
it has everything you want in a metal song, everything. - Mcflupy

135 April - Deep Purple

Amazing 12-minutes long song from Deep Purple's third album.

136 Child In Time - Deep Purple

A masterpiece by Deep Purple. Ian Gillan's screams are amazing, as well as Ritchie Blackmore's guitar.

137 Ancestral - Steven Wilson
138 Us and Them - Pink Floyd
139 Home Invasion / Regret #9 - Steven Wilson
140 Age of Shadows - Ayreon
