Top Ten Best Progressive Rock Songs


The Contenders: Page 8

141 One for the Vine - Genesis 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

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

148 The Carpet Crawlers - Genesis The Carpet Crawlers - Genesis
149 The Return of the Giant Hogweed - Genesis The Return of the Giant Hogweed - Genesis
150 Perpetual Change - Yes Perpetual Change - Yes
151 High Hopes - Pink Floyd 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.

152 The Hand That Feeds You - Introitus The Hand That Feeds You - Introitus
153 Neverland - Marillion 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.

154 Knights of Cydonia - Muse Knights of Cydonia - Muse
155 Hyperventilate - Frost 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!

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

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

160 Visions - Haken
