Best Boston Songs

The Top Ten
1 More Than a Feeling

This is my favorite song, plus, this is my favorite band. I really like the electric guitar solo part. This is a powerful song. This song also reminds me of my auntie Nettie. She died when I was only four years old. The lyrics are very meaningful. And I totally think this is the best Boston song.

I see my Marianne walking away - one line with so much feeling that it just delivers the punch. The awesome guitar riffs and the whole song are just soulful. You could say it's soul rock.

Best song ever written. I get goosebumps whenever I hear it. It really has great meaning and makes me feel great about life!

2 Peace of Mind

Personally, I believe this song is the best Boston song because the guitar riffs and the singing together make this song beautiful. It also makes me feel happier when listening to this song compared to other Boston songs. I still love all of them, but hands down, this is my favorite.

Best opening lines of any of their great songs. One of the best rock bands of all time. From the rocking songs like More Than a Feeling and Foreplay/Long Time to the softer side classics like Amanda and Hollyann.

I really enjoy this song. Would love to learn it on guitar. It surely beats "More Than a Feeling." Great acoustic guitar sound. Just love this song!

3 Foreplay / Long Time

For me, this is the ultimate Boston song, incorporating everything great about the band. A lengthy instrumental highlights Tom's keyboard skills, a "spacey" vibe reflects the album art, impressive guitar soloing, and distorted riffs combined with acoustic guitar. Great lyrics that are relatable to anybody, and Brad's incredible lead and backing vocals are full of catchy and accessible melodies.

The rhythm section is strong and punchy, with Sib playing great fills throughout and the bass driving the song forward the whole time. When the song finishes, all you want to do is start it all over again. Even over "More Than A Feeling," this is the greatest statement Boston ever made.

4 Don't Look Back

It's a really awesome song that I first heard on the show Supernatural. It has really good vocals, and the music is just amazing. I especially liked the guitar riff in this.

I like Long Time, Don't Look Back, and More Than a Feeling all about the same. Favorite tunes of all time. This is a very positive and uplifting tune. Love it!

Still get goosebumps every time I listen to this heavenly track. The guitar is killer!

5 Smokin'

This should be number 1. I heard them this past weekend on their 40th Year Tour. Tom is still kicking it on the organ. If they come to your area, go see them. You will like them.

Best keyboard solo of any song. It was on South Park.

This definitely deserves a higher place on this list.

6 Rock and Roll Band

This is my third favorite song after More Than a Feeling and Peace of Mind. I like it a lot. It's very good.

7 Amanda

Amazing song! Love it! I can listen to this song again and again and not get bored! It should be number 3, just after More Than a Feeling and Peace of Mind!

Smokin' and Rock and Roll Band should not be higher than Amanda.

8 A Man I'll Never Be

Sexy guitar! I love Boston, and this should be in the top 5. The song has so much meaning to it, and the guitar will make your neck hairs shiver!

One of the only songs to give me goosebumps. A deep, meaningful song with absolutely incredible guitar work by Tom Scholz. Excellent.

This song has such a complementary bass line to the awesome guitar work. Awesome song!

9 Hitch a Ride

My 10-year-old son loves Boston, and this is one of his favorite songs. I will admit, here lately, I have become more of a fan of this one, after being a long-time fan since the seventies! Boston is timeless. Music this good never dies, and it's a shame there's not music of this caliber in this day and age.

Amazing harmonies and guitar solos. I just heard it on my car radio, and it sounded fresh and new. They just aren't writing or performing songs like these nowadays.

My Boston favorite. Best guitar solo ever. Great harmonies and build-up.

10 Higher Power

This should be higher on the list. It's an epic song that you can really get into. And it's my personal favorite. This song deserves more credit.

It's Higher Power, by the way, and I feel that this song is very underrated.

Love this song. Please vote this song higher up the list. Great guitar, bass, drumming, and singing.

The Contenders
11 Something About You

This song gets me pumped up the most out of any Boston song. Even the slow and quiet intro could get anybody interested in what this one has to offer. I would put this as number 3 if I made a top ten list, following "Peace of Mind" at 1 and then "Foreplay/Long Time" at 2.

This should definitely be top 10. You can feel the guitar, not just hear it. There is something about this song that makes it amazing. It's great. It's amazing. It's the best.

All of Boston's songs are great, but Something About You is, by far, in my opinion, the best of them all to be cranked up loud.

12 Feelin' Satisfied

Absolutely powerful. The way the guitar builds up, especially at the end, combined with the lyrics makes this one of the best rock anthems you could ever hear.

Incredible guitar after the first chorus. Classic Boston.

How is this song not in the top 10!? It's just charged up! Love it!

13 Party

What? No one here likes to "Party?"

14 Let Me Take You Home Tonight

Love this song. It's got to be second or third in the top ten Boston songs. Brings back a lot of good memories. Come on, guys, let's vote it up!

15 We're Ready

Guitar solo...just too perfect. It's a shame this didn't rank higher. So much is missed. At the end, the acoustic guitar fade-out always makes me sad for some reason, but in a good way!

16 Can'tcha Say (You Believe in Me) / Still in Love

The bridge of this song really does make you want to cry. Once you hear it, all of your past glorious moments just come flooding back to you, and then you fall in love with the song.

Can'tcha Say (You'll Vote for Me)/Still in Love with this song!

Awesome song. Just great transitions.

17 Livin' for You

I love this song. It reminds me of love for my own son. I wish Brad was sharing vocals, but there is a lot of meaning to this song.

18 To Be a Man
19 Cool the Engines

Why is this so low? This is a driving song that feels like listening to "Feelin' Satisfied" or "Rock and Roll Band." The whole song is exceptionally catchy. Top 3 on "Third Stage" for sure.

Driving song that is my favorite from "Third Stage." It should have ranked in the first ten!

20 Didn't Mean to Fall In Love
21 Hollyann

A very underrated masterpiece. A truly powerful and moving song with lyrics that can pierce one's soul when reflecting upon simpler times when a million hands gave the sign of peace! For us timeless dreamers of another day, Hollyann is a reflection upon a quintessential utopia with a perfect girl that can only be captured in a song without the degradation or disappointment that real life reveals. Hollyann will always be perfect to me, every day and in every way.

This is an amazing song and, in my opinion, the greatest closer on any Boston album. This has everything great about Boston on it. Brad's vocals combined with the vocal melody and the harmonized guitars are heavenly.

22 It's Easy
23 I Need Your Love
24 What's Your Name

I'll say this: it's a little poppy, but it drives a beautiful bargain. From the beautiful lyrics to the strong guitar bridge, it surely is worth hearing.

25 I Had a Good Time

A great Boston tune with a sad and contemporary feel, like the end of something good. The end of Delp's run with this legendary band.

As more people hear this song, it will continue to move up the list. This is incredible considering the iconic songs ahead of it.

Brad Delp's last really good Boston song.
