Top Ten Best Progressive Rock Songs


The Contenders: Page 8

141 PHHHP! - Ron Jarzombek
142 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

143 Mockingbird - Barclay James Harvest
144 Welcome to the Machine - Pink Floyd
145 Song Within a Song - Camel
146 For Today - Camel
147 It's a Long Way There - Little River Band
148 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

149 The Carpet Crawlers - Genesis
150 The Return of the Giant Hogweed - Genesis
151 Perpetual Change - Yes
152 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.

153 The Hand That Feeds You - Introitus
154 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.

155 Knights of Cydonia - Muse
156 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!

157 Afterglow - Genesis
158 Song of Scheherazade - Renaissance
159 Gypsy - Uriah Heep
160 New Day - Karnivool

The best song I have ever heard to date, nothing even comes close to it.
