Top Ten Dream Theater Songs


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Peruvian Skies

Their most underrated song in my opinion - cjWriter1997

Criminally deep on this list.

Heaviest song. Why is this so far down the list its of one of the underrated song I love this song in live version it plays Metallicas enter sandman

62 Erotomania

This is one of THE essential Dream Theater songs. It is their 2nd best instrumental track behind Dance of Eternity, and for it to be this low on the list is an absolute crime. Shame on anyone who didn't vote for this song; you're no true Dream Theater fan.

63 The Bigger Picture

Oh really! The old song always win. Why they never give a chance for such a new song from the Self Titled album? This song is great, amazing and beautiful! This should be in top ten, even though this song is a little bit short, but still the instrumental's are far better than any other old song.

A great and emotional song with deep lyrics and an epic chorus!

This songs too underrated, they actually do not give new songs a chance. 1 of their best

One of the few songs I really appreciate from the new albums. So much emotion, so much euphoria overwhelming

64 The Mirror

This was the first Dream Theater song to really get heavy. It's simple, but effective. Kevin Moore's contributions to the ominous tone of the song should not be overlooked. It's something Rudess couldn't figure out until A Nightmare to Remember.

Poetic and with an ambiance feel to it, this dark tasting adrenaline will spike on your tongue, leaving you forget possibly some aspect of yourself while breezing through a crazed parade of your own self-demise.

This is one rocking tune. Not saying it should be in the top 10, but 87 is too low for this song.

65 Never Enough

This song is awesome! This should definitely be in the top 25! Great riff, great lyrics, and a sweet chorus. Rock on Dream Theater!

The hook of the chorus is enough to repel this song right up there, let's do it guys and gals.

Most underrated song of all time

66 To Live Forever
67 Enigma Machine

The instrumentals in this song are crazy! This song reminds me of an action packed spy movie

Words don't explain how insane this instrumental is

68 Far from Heaven

Off Their new album! This song is amazing the lyrics and music is just perfect. It gives me goosebumps every time I hear it. It should be higher on the list! If you haven't heard it, I recommend you listen to it! Pure amazingness! - dragon13304

This song have a beautiful mensager combinations with a grat singer man!

69 Vacant
70 In the Presence of Enemies, Pt. 2

The second part of In The Presence of Enemies vastly outshines the first. It has a slow build, a haunting vibe, epic vocals and lyrics about a metaphorical battle between the Heretic and a Dark Masters cult. For some reason, people look down on this album and song, and I seriously just don't get it. This song alone is reason enough to love this album. This is a bonified Dream Theater classic and proof that they are still songwriting masters this late into their career.

71 Caught in a Web

The best off of the Awake album, closely followed by 60 and Erotomania. Also why is The Dance Of Eternity so low down?

Great song, good solo and vocals.

72 The Enemy Inside

This is the first Dream Theater song I've heard. I'm in love with it. If this song is down here, I can't wait to listen to the others. I think it's brilliant, especially the rhythm.

This song is awesome love every part of it specially voice of James LaBrie and guitar of John Petrucci. This song must won grammy - Mansonlooks

Bet just nobody has listened to this track because it's the dream theater's best

Seriously, 73? This should be top 10.

73 Beneath the Surface

Personally, Scenes From a Memory and Octavarium were my favorite albums, but when I listened to A Dramatic Turn Of Events, I was just blown away. Like the albums I stated, this album sent me on a bit of an emotional roller coaster. Beneath the Surface, was the only song that I'd replay over and over again. This song made me replay memories of relationships that I've had with people that have gone south, and this song actually made me cry. This song is underrated and deserves better than 67!

Cried like a little girl when I listened to and watched the blu-ray version of this song, and I want drunk. So powerful.

Sorry but this list should be checked once more... This song deserves at least a rank within 10.

74 Ytse Jam

The only reason this is so low is probably because pre-Images and Words Dream Theater is largely forgotten. And pre-Images and Words Dream Theater is largely forgettable except for this classic. An absolutely essential song in Dream Theater's history.

75 Voices

What in the world is Voices doing so far down this list. This is top 10 DT for sure. One of JP's greatest lyrical efforts.

Personal favorite of mine.
In my opinion, the perfect DT song.
Should be in every true DT fan's Top Ten. - RushmanJon91

Not my favorite, but this is definitely one of Dream Theater's better songs. - Owengresham

No. 2 on my list after Another Day. What a great song!

78 One Last Time

Why this is not even in the top 50 is beyond me, it may be a short song, but the chorus and instruments all carry their own weight here. Definitely should be higher.

79 Wait for Sleep

Why has everybody forgotten the smooth touch and the divine quality of sound rendered to our ears in the early 90's by Kevin Moore through by DT?

The piano bit also from learning to live is great

OK, so its basically a mini-DT song compared to their greatest like Octavarium, Under a Glass Moon, Pull Me Under, Metropolis Part 1, and the Count of Tuscany, but its a fantastic song from Kevin Moore's piano part to LaBrie's vocals, its a great song

That Piano is So Awesome, I could listen it 1000 times and still yearn for more.

80 Surrender to Reason

My favorite song off Dream Theater (2013)
