I bet you know more than the mere 3 that I did, although I can think of singles by 3 of the others (Focus, Argent & Procul Harum), but not the tracks mentioned here embarassed


Both Focus singles, Sylvia and Hocus Pocus, were in the UK charts at the same time!

As was pointed out elsewhere, the logical choice would've been that missing Supertramp song. grin wink

True. Not that keen on the ones in the poll. Moody Blues aren't prog anyway, they're pop!

Some great songs here. I voted for Sylvia, Focus although I prefer Hocus Pocus, especially version performed live at the Rainbow.

I think early ELO were quite proggy although probably the only ELO single I would consider as prog was 10538 Overture.

OK, let's not dwell too long on music categories/genres again. wink

Yes. Listen to On the threshold of a Dream, To Our Childrens... or Every Good Boy in particular.

To some of us, they invented Prog. To some the Beatles, but it was Mike Pinder of the Moodies who got them a Mellotron.

Cue big argument about who invented prog. I'd argue you could even go back to Joe Meek/Tornadoes and Telstar. Think about the rock n roll music that was around in 1962. Telstar must've been a hell of a shock to music fans.
