Most Complex Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Paranoid Android - Radiohead
22 Baba O'Riley - The Who
23 My Last Sunrise - Demons & Wizards

The structure of this song is so progressive that all parts are different and it doesn't even have a chorus. And the meaning is difficult to understand without additional research. - Metal_Treasure

24 Supper's Ready - Genesis
25 The Dance of Eternity - Dream Theater
26 Brown Sugar - The Rolling Stones

"Brown Sugar" is another name for heroin, so some believe that the whole song is about drugs. - Alpha101

27 Morphine Child - Savatage
28 You're So Vain - Carly Simon
29 We Are All Made of Stars - Moby

There's several different scientific, philosophical and thought-provoking concepts laid out in this song. In my mind, the most complex of all. - PositronWildhawk

30 Ghosts N' Stuff - Deadmau5

How you perceive this song is entirely down to independent perspective. - PositronWildhawk

31 Extreme Ways - Moby

On the one hand, it's about his great ambitions and his seemingly flawless perception of his lifestyle, and his surprise at the point where he collapsed. On the other hand, it's about the thought that his downfall was predictable and it was worth appreciating his hardships. However you see it, one basis would contradict the other. - PositronWildhawk

32 Chinese Food - Alison Gold
33 Good Vibrations - The Beach Boys

The lyrics are relatively simple, but the arrangement is as complex as it gets. - PetSounds

34 Comatose - Skillet

Don't get me wrong, I love this song. But I don't really find it very complex... - Alpha101

35 One-X - Three Days Grace

Don't get me wrong people. I really love this song, but the only complex thing about it is when Adam says "i need to figure out who's behind me." Was he talking about God or some other kind of spiritual being? Or was he talking about the people who wish death and misery upon you?

36 The Trial - Pink Floyd
37 Let Down - Radiohead
