Top Ten Dream Theater Songs


The Contenders: Page 6

101 The Big Medley

Wow I'm sad that I had to put this on the list myself but it's so cool how they combine all of these classic rock songs but all polished up with their own twist on them. This definitely shouldn't be #101

102 Status Seeker
103 Moment of Betrayal

This song actually surprised me. It kind of had a classic Dream Theater sound to it. Really great song. Can't wait for the new album!

Amazing song. This song, and all of the others on The Astonishing, needs more recognition.

104 Ravenskill
105 Metropolis Part 2 (Demo)

Though it's only a demo, but I like it also. - 8GRND

106 Instrumedley
107 Behind the Veil
108 6:00

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!

109 The Dark Eternal Night

Just what MAN! This song is Masterpiece! Except the part in the middle of the song where it sung like an alien song. But the double bass is just the best! The solo! The shredding! This song is one of their masterpiece!

What is this doing so low. It's the 2nd best song on Systematic Chaos. In the Presence of Enemies gets undue credit for being 25 minutes long. It sucks. This song and Constant Motion are the only listenable moments on that sorry excuse for an album.

How is this song so far down? Listen to the guitar, and the vocals. It sounds demonic (in a good way)

The riffs of the beggining of this music are wonderful.

110 A Rite of Passage

Really this song is pretty lame, but the guitar solo is one of the best of Petrucci's career.

What a Wonderful song, so sad it's so low

This is just sad. This is my second favorite song off of because & SL, behind Count of Tuscany of course. By far THE MOST underrated song on the list. Shame on you people.

Are you kidding me?!,68?

111 Scene Two: II. Strange Deja Vu

I can't understand why one of the bests songs of the best DT album can be at 69 position. Just listen this song. Mt. part 2 songs must be at the first at top 20.

112 To Tame a Land V 1 Comment
113 Tenement Funster / Flick of the Wrist / Lily of the Valley V 1 Comment
114 The Test That Stumped Them All

This is the best song from 2nd disc of 6 degrees. The musicianship is off the charts. Try to play this song. I dare you. Just try. Impossible.

115 The Answer Lies Within

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

116 Prophets of War

Come on people. Why is it THIS low? Although it is not their best, it is surely not their worst! Sure there are no solo's at all, but overall, I love this song. Nice riffing brought by Petrucci and the Portnoy vocals just gets me every time. Really touching lyrics overall and I simply love it.

What? #106? That's something I truly cannot understand. The lyrics are so powerful, the build up is epic and the entire song really brings me in a state of euphoria

117 New Millennium

What an absolute travesty that this song is so low. It is one of the highlights of Falling Into Infinity. I guess people hate the Chapman stick?

118 Build Me Up, Break Me Down

CRAZINESS! This song just amazing and it's NO 92 this song is sound of life

Love this song so much it should be so much higher. It's so underrated

I really love Labrie's screaming here.

119 Odyssey
120 Solitary Shell

This is a brilliant song written by John Petrucci, check out Live at Budokan Dream Theater album. It will just make you grow a better listener and a music lover

They put all the songs together for one big song that is in the top 10: six degrees of inner turbulence, so it is much higher

Must be much higher than at what it is placed now. Gem of a song by DT. Meant especially for the introverts.

A nice song for learning to headbang. - MonkeyDude98
