    Your favourite prog sidelong song? (pick one!)

    My fav is Gates of Delirium by Yes.





    It's a beautiful, chaotic, well structured, always fascinating epic song with amazing slide-guitars, noisy keys, so fast with mellow Soon section as a pleasant contrast aswell.

    Still on frequent rotation at my place (especially the live version), while the well-known others are dormant for at least 20-25 years.

    Since I only have a DL version of this song, I don't know if it would/does take up a whole album/CD side but....Underfall Yard is my new favorite "grand Epic"

    ....followed closely by: Gates, A Plague of Lighthouse Keepers,.....Damn, Ikon is a really good pick too.

    Iron Butterfly..............In A Gadda Da Vida. Seeing that "Thick As A Brick" and "A Passion Play" are both two sides, so they wouldn't fall under the parameters.

    Not familiar with that song. Whodunnit?

    (guessing that you meant Supper's Ready, which is only a side-long song on the live album)

    I'm sure I could change my mind at any time, but for right now I'll go with TD's Force Majeure.

    [My fav is Gates of Delirium by Yes.]

    Yep, that's my all time favorite as well followed by SR and CTTE.

    Honorable mentions:

    All of the above (Transatlantic)
    Nine feet underground (Caravan)
    Eruption (Focus)
    Change (Magic Pie)

    I probably don't have to name the band with these:

    Tarkus
    Echoes
    Dogs
    Ritual
    The revealing science of god
    2112
    Hemispheres

    That doesn't count as a sidelong song. There was "Magdalene (My Regal Zonophone)" before it.

    Sidelong song? Thick as a Brick, Side 1.

    Maybe Supper's Ready (23 minutes is an LP side, regardless of whether or not they shoehorned something else in front of it)

    I'm stuck.

    "Echoes" or "Close to the Edge"

    My first reaction was, "Close to the Edge," hands down. But then, for sentimental reasons, "Echoes" is dear to my heart.
