Top Ten Dream Theater Songs


The Contenders: Page 6

101 Take Your Fingers from My Hair

This song is just fantastic. It's such a disappointment it's way down here on the list. More people need to hear this song.

Definitely deserves top 10 at least

102 False Awakening Suite
103 A Fortune in Lies
104 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

105 Status Seeker
106 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.

107 Dystopian Overture

It's a good instrumental. - TheParable

108 Ravenskill
109 Metropolis Part 2 (Demo)

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

110 Instrumedley
111 Behind the Veil
112 Brother, Can You Hear Me?
113 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.

114 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

Are you kidding me?!,68?

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.

115 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.

116 To Tame a Land

Iron maiden song cover

117 Tenement Funster / Flick of the Wrist / Lily of the Valley

Its should be on top 20, queen's songs covered by DT

118 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.

Come on tis s a pretty good song! Deserves a better place...

119 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

120 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?
