Top Ten Best Progressive Rock Songs


The Contenders: Page 9

161 Perpetual Change - Yes
162 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.

163 The Hand That Feeds You - Introitus
164 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.

165 Knights of Cydonia - Muse
166 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!

167 Afterglow - Genesis
168 Song of Scheherazade - Renaissance
169 Gypsy - Uriah Heep
170 New Day - Karnivool

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

171 Visions - Haken
172 East Coast Racer - Big Big Train
173 Terrapin Station - Grateful Dead

Wonderful song.

After 40 years there is still something to discover. Some rise, some fall to get to Terrapin.

176 Killer - Van Der Graaf Generator
177 Black Rose Immortal - Opeth
178 Paradise Lost - Symphony X
179 Art of Life - X Japan

Surely one to consider!
