The Contenders: Page 8

141 Icarus (Born on Wings of Steel) - Kansas
142 Magnum Opus - Kansas
143 Follow You, Follow Me - Genesis
144 PHHHP! - Ron Jarzombek
145 One for the Vine - Genesis

Wind & Wuthering has always been an underestimated album, yet one of Genesis strongest material...

One of the most beautiful songs of all time - RalphSaad

146 Mockingbird - Barclay James Harvest
147 Welcome to the Machine - Pink Floyd
148 Song Within a Song - Camel
149 For Today - Camel
150 It's a Long Way There - Little River Band
151 Miracles out of Nowhere - Kansas

One of the best progressive rock songs in the world performed by one of the best progressive bands ever! Never heard a better instrumental solo

152 The Carpet Crawlers - Genesis
153 The Return of the Giant Hogweed - Genesis
154 Perpetual Change - Yes
155 High Hopes - Pink Floyd

Amazing song. It has a sinister start, then the chorus hits you with a flow of emotions. The escalation in the middle feels so empowering until the sinister verse hits back. After a second chorus, Gilmour's masterpiece of a solo will leave you in tears. - RalphSaad

A song with mood and pure beauty.

156 The Hand That Feeds You - Introitus
157 Neverland - Marillion

When recording the "V"-album, Neal Morse joked about the lyrics for "Revelation": "We're not supposed to sing about girls, because we're a prog band". Marillion clearly ignored this 'rule' and with "Neverland" they made the best lovesong ever.

158 Knights of Cydonia - Muse
159 Hyperventilate - Frost

I can't believe the band Frost is not on these lists, or that the songs: hyperventilate and milliontown are not included. For all the talk of atmosphere, musical arrangements, diversity, emotion, and taking you on a journey, etc; these songs have all of that and more. Milliontown deserves a spot as one of the greatest Prog Rock albums ever!

160 Afterglow - Genesis
