This song is so true it HURTS

THE LYRICS ARE awesome! MY WHOLE LIFE STORY IN ONE SONG!
BREATH TAKING THE WAY THEY CAPTURED THE EMOTIONS

Such a catchy song. I love it. - LightningStrike

From the second the song starts it's awesome. Literally every second of this wonderful tune is iconic. - BKAllmighty

2 Goodbye Stranger

The guitar rift at the end is sheer magic!

Only with time have I really appreciated how great this song is. Wonderful melodies and the lyrics are more punk rock than the punk and new wave bands around at the same time. Only difference is this still sounds great years later...

Simply a masterpiece. So catchy, I find myself singing it for hours after I listen to it. Most definitely one of Supertramp's best!

A song you will never forget. - theforgiventeen

3 School

Best song from supertramp! This song represent progressive rock at his best. So much intensity through all the song. From the beginning till the end, everything is different.

The progression of the song, and the different use of instruments is outstanding. Really reminds me of childhood, the song definitely makes you reminisce

One of the best off the best album

Absolutely brilliant...my favourite song of all time. Instrumental genius!

4 Take the Long Way Home

One of their best songs, great harmonica intro! - The_Acid_Queen

Somehow, that opening harmonica came to mean Supertramp to me. The Logical song has the best lyrics of any song by anyone, but this song is still more special to me on a personal level.

The overall feel of this song is fantastic. Definitely the best, maybe tied with the Logical Song

By far the best ever song involving a harmonica

5 Fool's Overture

Just amazing combination of music and lyrics. Reminds me of the good ole days!

What a genius is Roger Hodgson. Seriously this song makes me feel so many things. Probably the most beautiful song ever composed, and has so many different elements going for it, it is the best supertramp composition ever in my opinion.

There are so many incredible parts to this song. The writers must have been incredible inspired. I listened to this song all my life but only recently realized how complex it is. Good job Roger et al!

This should be #1. You'll never get tired of this song since half of the song is instrumental, and the other song has Supertramp's incredible voice. Add the fact that this song is 10 minutes old, and you got one of the best songs of all time : Fool's Overture. - MaxPap

7 Breakfast in America

Short and sweet

Brings back many memories

Only 7th? OO
I'm chocked.
This one is the most famous and one of their bests.

Had not heard of super tramp till the late 80s gutted! Mon a Roy %%%

8 Bloody Well Right

One of the heaviest! And one of the best too! That guitar riff is too damn powerful. I really love this song.

This one definitely has the best guitar of any supertramp song, by far.

It's definitely got the best guitar of any Supertramp song out there.

Some awesome saxophone playing in this song? Bloody well right! - PetSounds

9 From Now On

Guess I'll always have to be
Living in a fantasy

Beautiful, just beautiful. The ending chorus is powerful with Rodger Hodgson absolutely killing it. I cannot express how great this song is. I recommend it to everyone.

The ending part to this song is my favorite part to a song ever, amazing all around!

Rick Davies's finest song. The piano is the best part.

10 Crime of the Century

Shiver-inducing

Child of Vision also has a fantastic instrumental, but Crime of the Century has an instrumental that is perfectly coordinated, insightful, entrancing, and overall the best orchestration of instruments imaginable. Even just listening closely enough to the simple piano part, you can hear it in two slightly different rhythms. The lyrics are golden too.

Best song on a great album.. and Bloody Well Right, School and Hide In your Shell are great too.. which means this song is well, underrated.

Absoulutely one of their greatest songs ever made! How this powerful amazing song isn't higher on the list than number 9 is shocking to say the least!

The Contenders

11 Rudy

Rudy its for my a complete travel with guitars, violins, percussions, etc

My top twelve Supertramp Songs are:

1. Rudy
2. Take the Long Way Home
3. The Logical Song
4. Another Man's Woman
5. Crime of the Century
6. It's Raining Again
7. My Kind of Lady
8. Fool's Overture
9. Give a Little Bit
10. Goodbye Stranger
11. Hide in Your Shell
12. Bloody Well Right

This is purely one of the Best Song of Supertramp, just before School!

How is this song not top 10? Yes it didn't get the radio time Breakfast In America did but it's a much better song, top 5 easy

12 Dreamer

Yes

One of the finest deserves to be higher.

Dreamer and good bye stranger are the best!

One of the best.

13 Hide in Your Shell

As a lifelong Supertramp fan - own every album - I'd say it's a tie between Hide in Your Shell and Take the Long Way Home for #1. The live version of Hide in Your Shell on Paris is incredible.

It's my having a baby song. Really draws you in and then builds up to a crescendo. Makes me cry too... Such feeling and tremendous emotion, makes me forget everything else.

Rich and dense music, with great lyrics, does not deserve to reside above rank 5 and so I 'll vote for it...

So many levels to this song= was blessed to meet roger recently and told him I always loved the emotions this song brings!

16 It's Raining Again

I knew it would be lower on the list but I definitely don't think it deserves to be. It's an underrated classic. - BKAllmighty

This one and The Logical Song have the best Sax, no question. This one is also uplifting in a surprisingly pessimistic way, which makes it really have a fine emotional weight to it. If something bad happens, don't let it get you down.

It's a top 5 for me, surprised it's so low on list

Well, John Hallowell would be the reason why I've been a huge S.T. fan.s. After listening to and getting hooked imideatly to his sound, style and just mind blowing sax solos,I as a sax player trying to copy his sound, well, let's just say it isn't easy to play.Now about the song.When I first herd it, I thought (what a silly, bubble gummy kind of song).only to realize later that the song actually has
some depth. Yes, it wasn't one of their best written songs, but it always put me in a good mood.
And to end the song, just like the beginning of it, John blows us away with just another well-written /played/and executed sax solo that seems to take me on a journey threw a rainy day.and in the end I'm more of a fan than ever! Thanks for caring.

17 Child of Vision

The second half of the song is honestly one of the most perfect arrangements in music. The piano solo, the groove and the melody just fit so perfectly. Definitely a contender in the most underrated songs of all time.

Completely underrated song. One of the most complete songs and one of my Supertramp favorites!

One of my favorite songs of all time.

Easily the best Supertramp song, never hear it the radio, such a shame Rick’s piano solo is one of the best on any record. Simply the best song, period

25 Lord Is It Mine

This song is criminally low

It boggles my mind how this song isn't somewhere in the top ten. Yeah, it's not number one, but hell, it's way better than Breakfast in America. I mean, even the person who wrote it thinks so. There's just so much emotion and power. One word: underrated.

Love this song! My number 3! Reminds me of The Beatles ' Let it Be. - Shugs

A beautiful song - one of their best.

26 Brother Where You Bound

16 minutes of pure progressive rock. If you don't consider Supertramp one of the best progressive rock bands, listen to this song. I thought Supertramp was nothing without Hodgson, well I was wrong. Oh and also, this song has David Gilmour on guitar. Just listen to it. It's a masterpiece. - MaxPap

A masterpiece. Words cannot describe this wonderful piece of music. A classic.

43 Try Again

This song defines progressive rock at its best. The first Supertramp album is so overrated, yet I think it's twice as better than Breakfast in America and Crime of the Century. Their style is so different on this album! Try Again has to be their best. First, is has one of the best guitar solos ever and the song is overall so progressive (12min long) and so good! If you did not hear it I recommend you do it now! Very underrated! - MaxPap

44 Poor Boy

Ok I at least expected it to be in the top 15s... this song is criminally underrated.

Their most underrated song. - MaxPap
