The Contenders: Page 3
Anything which can get better in this song is NOTHING...!
sheer masterpiece.. It should be in top 5..
This is definitely one of the heavier Dream Theater songs but it is still a completely awesome song. It also has one of the best solos they have ever done. What an amazing song
Great Heavy Metal Prog Song
Big Four with
A Chance Of Seasons
Octavarium - Glauberson
I thing nobody haven't lisntened this song :S this song has perfect intro
One of the only highlights on a disastrous album.
This music is perfect. Clean and cool!
The song's verses just remind me of Ride The Lightning/Black Album almost, with a Creeping Death-like riff and Black Album sounding voice. I don't know why, but it does lmao.V 4 Comments
Easily their best "short" song--encapsulates an entire album in 3 and a half minutes. Playing this track through Fatal Tragedy on the Scenes from Memory album is how I introduce people to Dream Theater.
My favorite instrumental by them. Not too long, not too short.
How the hell it onli 38! It unbelivible song! My favorite
The whole ambiance the song sets with the vocal solo in the beginning and the transition to Labrie's vocals just gets you into a relaxed state and the guitar parts of the song are just phenomenal. The song seems to have taken some pink floyd influence and just about nailed every aspect of it.
Yes, it's so underrated and it's their most beautiful song!V 2 Comments
Great song from Six Degrees, hints of Kashmir, great vocals, a touch of Echoes in the last few minutes. Listen to the lyrics and this is very much an overlooked piece
I don't know if this song is my absolute favorite (and I wouldn't doubt if I've voted for another song on this list before) but the lyrics are excellent and it definitely deserves to be higher on the list.
6DOIT, with the exception of the title track and The Glass Prison, is a ridiculously underrated album. This is an incredible song with a phenomenal progression!
This music in 49 is misunderstood.V 3 Comments
Does this count because there are 5 different songs in this
This might possibly be the saddest songs I've ever heard (although any song about September 11th is going to be sad). All praise their sacrificed sons.
Definitely the most underrated Dream Theater song, along with Voices and Scarred.
What. The. Heck. This is easily a top ten song!
Best by far.. Specially after 8 minutes
This may be a reprise of most of the 12 step suite, but it is one of the few Dream Theater 10 min+ power songs which doesn't have one or another luls in the music. But still, it definitely doesn't deserve #45...
How is this #47?V 3 Comments
This song really is underrated. Of the 100 or so dream theater songs, this is in the top 30 for sure. The song has a thoughtful progression with its own energy, but isn't too speedy like Octavarium (which I adore and is about as much better than Pull Me Under as Shadows is better than any song on Train of Thought
Such an underrated song. Not very heavy, but fantastic composition and I can't believe that it's only at the 54th spot.
Fantastic proggresive song shoudl be top 15 at least
My favorite one from Falling into Infinity which very underrated album in my view.
Come on people. Trial of Tears is an amazing song! It is one of the songs next to Lines in the Sand and Hell's Kitchen that saves FII from sinking too low! One of Myung's greatest masterpiece! At least put it in the top 15 or 20, not 46. The lyrics are charming, Labrie is at his best here. Myung and Portnoy are main players and rock out the entire song. What about the back to back Petrucci/Sherinian solo? I fall in love with those solo's every single time.
Can't believe this one is rated this low. One of the best less heavy songs this band has produced. A true masterpiece. Definitely in my top 10
Not my favourite, but this definitely deserves to be WAY higher.V 2 Comments
This should be AT LEAST in the top 20! Definitely Top 5 in my opinion.
Should be higher.
Definitely not their best song but come on, 97?! This and Strange Deja-vu should be a LOT higher!
One of the best songs by DT,... What its on 16... And the video is awesome...
And yes its better than the song pull me under
Great song overall; nice riff with guitar and piano
It takes you somewhere and makes you feel like you're floating.
In my opinion it's better than "Pull Me Under".
Someone tell me how this is at no. 50? - BOOGIE69V 12 Comments
This was the song which initially got me into DT - the lyrics are great to start with, with a catchy groovy chorus. Then the instrumental sections in the middle and the end, in particular Petrucci's shredding, blew me away and introduced me to a whole new level of music writing! - petrucci75hammet
By far the best song from Awake - great guitar work from Petrucci
This has one of my favourite chorus' in any song I've ever heard! Yes, it's a deep song, and yes, it's a bit... of the hook, but so is the rest of the album. This is one of my favourite songs of all time... because of one chorus. Wow. And right now I'm blasting Numb (Linkin Park) through my head phones!
Not the biggest dream theater fan, so I might see their music differently to the big fans of them, and I know this song is relatively simple for them, however just the pure emotion it conveys makes it a favourite for me. No other song brings more emotion to me than Disappear.
In my opinion, this is the only Dream Theater song that effectively brings a heavy hitting amount of emotion without sounding lame.
#71! This song made SDOIT album good and peacefully relaxing
Maybe not the best but this one deserves to be higher, awesome song and the drums are great
Needs to be higher
One of my favorite song of Dream T, and one of their most under rated song, people forgot that this song is part of the Images and Words, one of the best crafted album of all time.
#95? Are you guys insane? This song is a MASTERPIECE! It has my 3rd favorite guitar solo in it (behind Pull Me Under and Under a Glass Moon), however, this is very underrated...
In my Top 40 list of Dream Theater songs, I rank this #17, only behind the greatest songs by them
Contains so many interesting and catchy ideas/riffs. This is definitely in my top ten.
Best Dream Theater song...V 6 Comments
This will be on top 5! amazing intro riff and solos (that's insane) and tremendous song (the live versions are incredible too)
Another highlight on Scenes From a Memory, with one of the most difficult guitar solos in Dream Theater's arsenal. Plus it has a fun Frank Zappa rip-off section.
This has to be in the top ten. Amazing song!
The Best Of Metropolis Part 2 - GlaubersonV 3 Comments
People how can you not like this songs so much of raw emotions it is just amazing how they could make a song so beautiful as this
This song is the god of all prog songs... Just too good... James Labrie is very very good... Amazingly great.. I totally agree with the first guy's comment for this song
The Answer Lies Within 69 (lenny face)
The meaning is deep... Slow song and peacefull
