Lazarus

Most prog giants of the seventies have released singles that their fans frowned upon, because they were considered too poppy. The most well-known examples are Follow you, follow me by Genesis, Wondrous stories by Yes and Another brick in the wall by Pink Floyd. Porcupine Tree, probably the best prog rock band of recent decades, followed suit with this track from their 2005 album Deadwing. Simple in construction, with a great melody, this should have been their hit single, but the public did not buy it. A pity. Art Rock score: 9/10 (awesome song, one of the 1000 best of all time).
