Best The Moody Blues Songs

The Top Ten
1 Nights in White Satin

Probably the most popular song, it is iconic and immediately delves you into memories!

The most beautiful Rock song ever written! My daughters father bride song at her Wedding! (Moodybluedude)

Without a doubt an absolute classic.
No question about it.

2 The Story in Your Eyes

Their albums from Days of Future Passed thru Seventh Sojourn were their best works. Brilliant album art as well. Leaving them out of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is nonsense, ridiculous, illogical and insulting.

From their most mature creative period. Straight ahead rock, not vapid blue jays stuff that came later.

Just awesome. Get goose bumps every time I hear it!

3 Your Wildest Dreams

I like to think "Your Wildest Dreams" will be adored by generations to come, much as I and many others in my generation adore this song. And I'm sure there are others who agree with me that this mere pop song rates as transcendent art.

My mom was always a huge Moody Blues fan and I was always happiest when this song came on. Still one of my favorites

So very recognizable and beautiful! Fills me with happiness and smiles!

4 I'm Just a Singer (In a Rock & Roll Band)

One of Johns best

5 Tuesday Afternoon (Forever Afternoon)

The music & lyrics of the Moody Blues songs are some of the most beautiful & meaningful ever written. They still sound amazing live, too!

Beautiful song. Easily in the top three.

Top 5 in my opinion

6 Melancholy Man

One of the saddest, most depressing songs, yet one of the most beautiful ever.. just brilliant

The national anthem of melancholy men.

Best song of them, very emotional vocal, such a powerful guitar and good back vocalists

7 Question

Wonderful lyrics combined with powerful vocals truly deliver a fantastic experience. In one word a masterpiece

Easily best song they ever did.

8 I Know You're Out There Somewhere

One of their noteworthy songs and like Your Wildest Dreams. The tune is a memo-rising reserve to its meaning and always listen to it a lot.

This certainly ranks above "Your Wildest Dreams". Certainly higher then The Other Side of Life.

9 Go Now!

This is how I knew the Moody Blues in the mid 60s. Such a great tune for that time in my life. What a shock to find out that this was same band that came out with Days of Future Passed.

The transformation gave me instant respect and loyalty to one of my favorite groups.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, my friends. But how insulting it is to the band, and us their fans, to rate this early, kitschy cover song above all of the superlative, beautiful masterpieces done by the classical Moody Blues thereafter.

This song really means something to me but it's unfortunate that it isn't more popular.

10 Gemini Dream

The Newcomers

? Evening
The Contenders
11 The Other Side of Life

The best of moody blues..
What a number!

12 Eternity Road
13 What Am I Doing Here?
14 The Voice
15 One More Time to Live

Evolutionary biology and psychology majors should listen to this one

16 Are You Sitting Comfortably
17 The Swallow
18 Watching and Waiting
19 Out and In
20 And the Tide Rushes In
21 Isn't Life Strange
22 Legend of a Mind

One cannot help but think of San Francisco and the Haight /Asbury district when listening to this song. Hearing it brings back EVERYTHING about the summer of love - the sights (and sites), the SOUNDS, the bustle and street performers, even the smells of incense in the air. This song epitomizes and defines 1960s in S.F. I was lucky enough to meet Timothy Leary there in 1988 -- I'll never forget it. And this song played in the back of my mind while we chatted.

The depth of this composition is unsurpassed in the Moody Blues catalogue. Ray Thomas, with his songwriting, flute, and soprano vocals has written a masterpiece.

This song is just perfect - psychedelic, with amazing flute solo, very dreamy and upbeat, just, well ya know, just fantastic!

23 Ride My See-Saw

Unbelievable this isn't much, much higher...One of their all-time best!

First song I heard from the Moody Blues back in late 60's I think.

Great song with a driving rhythm. Makes you want to cruse.
