6 Starship Trooper - Yes
7 Paranoid Android - Radiohead
8 Time - Pink Floyd
9 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

This song has several important elements of Progressive Music:
1) Complex composition - the structure of this song is progressive because it has different parts that aren't repeated and it doesn't even has a chorus (it's a multi-part song)
2) Superior vocals - flawless operatic vocals, multi-layered vocals
3) Progressive instrumentation - piano sets up a "progressive" rock sound
4) Obvious classical music influence - Metal_Treasure

10 Easy Livin' - Uriah Heep

I love this song but it's more like an early metal song than prog rock song. I mean, there's nothing progressive in it. - Metal_Treasure
