Best Supertramp Songs
And of course, some other artists that belong in this similar range of British progressive pop would have to be 10cc and Al Stewart, as "I'm Not In Love" and "Time Passages" are both equally sentimental-sounding tracks that deserve a ton of love and respect. "Buy me a ticket on the last train home tonight..." Many years later and this song is still burned into my memory. Same goes with a lot of 10cc's work.
Not my favorite Supertramp song, but this is still a progressive rock classic. Their signature Wurlitzer electric piano sounds blend in well with the heavier instruments and production. Don't forget some heartfelt harmonies from the band itself and you have a recipe for a great track.
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...
Like picking a favourite child.. I like that one x this song brings out all types of my emotions.. I'm listening now as I'm typing... I was born in 82 and my mum introduced me to this and I'm hooked.. Thanks mum xxx d Kay xx
THE Absolutely flipping best Supertramp song! The crazy instrumentals perfectly complement Supertramp's unique voice. This song gets you smiling, dancing and thinking.
This used to be my favourite song as a child, I just love it, it's still of my favourites of all time, Supertramp is probably the most underrated band of all time.
From the second the song starts it's awesome. Literally every second of this wonderful tune is iconic.
This is the main reason why I listened to supertramp more! This is the best song from them!
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
One of their best songs, great harmonica intro!
This song, might be the greatest song of all time.
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
Absolutely brilliant...my favourite song of all time. Instrumental genius!
The progression, simply, the progression. So good!
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.
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!
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.
Fantastic intro/instrumental 2 minutes long outro, few lyrics but really significant ones.
I'm surprised that this isn't #1. I guess I'm not tired of it yet because I think it deserves top spot.
Should be the best. Absolutely beautiful. My favorite song ever.
No way someone is speaking pish?
Just an all around wonderful song.
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.
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!
Just amazing combination of music and lyrics. Reminds me of the good ole days!
Only 7th? OO
This one is the most famous and one of their bests.
A little short, but still good!
Short and sweet
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!
This is without a doubt the greatest song created by supertramp! I can't understand how it isn't the first one
Dreamer and good bye stranger are the best!
One of the finest deserves to be higher.
One of the best.
This song is really, really deep and fun to listen to.
My top twelve Supertramp Songs are:
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
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
This is purely one of the Best Song of Supertramp, just before School!
Rudy its for my a complete travel with guitars, violins, percussions, etc
10/10 for me it's the best of the group
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.
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.
I knew it would be lower on the list but I definitely don't think it deserves to be. It's an underrated classic.
This is so good! Has the best sax performance than any other supertramp song!
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.
Magnificent song I get goosebumps just remembering some of the lyrics
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.
This and Take the Long Way Home should be 1a and 1b. Really the whole album of Crime of the Century should fill out the top 8 songs. Supertramp at their absolute best.
So many levels to this song= was blessed to meet roger recently and told him I always loved the emotions this song brings!
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.
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
Completely underrated song. One of the most complete songs and one of my Supertramp favorites!
One of my favorite songs of all time.
By far and away the best. My life in a song. Never shag another man,
Truly one of the most beautiful songs ever written.
Awesome song! Th elyrics really makes you feel the character becoming crazy...
Great lyrics and epic music. As good as School and Crime of The Century
My favourite Supertramp song, it's simple but it's just so damn poignant.
Should be in the Top 10 at least. This song is so beautiful.
Perfect Overture to the album 'Breakfast in America', a powerful progressive track.
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.
A masterpiece. Words cannot describe this wonderful piece of music. A classic.
Wardrobe and friends
If you've never listened to this song, you could have a great surprise.
Really underrated song, but one of the best!
Has to be the best, definitely up there.
