I think some of the best Prog songs has come from non prog bands.. or bands that typically are not identified as being progressive in general.

My top Six in no particular order...

Funeral for a Friend - Elton John Band
Long Time - Boston
Beware of Darkness - George Harrison
Paradise by the Dashboard Light - Meatloaf
Introduction - Chicago
Love to Love You - UFO

What are your picks?

Nice pick!  And from a band, close to home, whose name I would never have associated with PA too.

I would like to know whether anyone here would regard this music as progressive rock: https://soundcloud.com/opus-grand

I'm having a tough time categorising it

This is my personal favorite, Suite Madame Blue by Styx (on PA as Prog-Related), including the "Prelude" that precedes it on the album.

Clap Great combination there! SH knows a good painting when he sees one.
I had that original painting as my "desktop" at work for several years, looked very nice too.

I remember liking this a lot at the time - atmospheric, lots of great guitar work and a song which had an intro that went for almost 3 minutes - it may not be prog but well...
