Top Ten Best Progressive Rock Songs


The Contenders: Page 7

121 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.

122 Happiness is a Warm Gun - The Beatles
123 Folklore - Big Big Train
124 Carry on Wayward Son - Kansas
125 Stuffed Tomato - Vangelis
126 Pictures of a City - King Crimson
127 Stream of Consciousness - Dream Theater

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

128 Absinthe and Rue - Symphony X
129 Sever - Porcupine Tree
130 Never Let Go - Camel V 2 Comments
131 Deadman - Karnivool V 1 Comment
132 Ritual - Yes
133 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.

134 Stockholm Syndrome - Muse
135 The Odyssey - Symphony X

Best 25 minutes of my life, song changes so many times and tells an amazing story

136 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

137 Oniket Prantor - Artcell

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

138 La Villa Strangiato - Rush V 2 Comments
139 I Am the Sun, Pt. 1 - The Flower Kings
140 Fool's Overture - Supertramp
