I don't think any song really changed my life but Hocus Pocus and Focus' Moving Waves album opened musical doors. Perpetual Change ( Yessongs version )  was the first real progrock song that I really dug after that. .

Thinking of this topic in all seriousness.......
If I go all the way back, I'd have to say, not really 2 singular tracks, but, when I watched Floyd's Live At Pompeii, I was totally sold on the idea of 'long songs and instrumental stretches'. Shortly after, I received Atom Heart as a birthday gift. Then I discovered Genesis' Trick of the Tail album. Dance On A Volcano solidified my musical future.....

Hey, that's cool! After watching Pompeii I became a proghead too and my first CD was Atom Heart Mother...
 
Two tracks that changed my life? Echoes and Atom Heart Mother. Add BMS, Il Giardino del Mago.

pffff...  just like prog fan...  music doesn't change your life it merely accentuates it.. the good or the bad. When you are depressed you put Floyd on.. when ready to kick ass and chase pussy you put on some RATT!!!!  Of course it is women, not music, which change our lives but they don't know what those are do they so music must suffice. Poor sods..

1/In the Court of the Crimson King, which I heard in my parents backyard in 1969 on WNEW FM, Scott Muni's Friday afternoon show Things from England.  That migrated my interest to UK prog whereas previously I'd mostly been a fan of US West Coast folk/rock & blues/rock.  I wouldn't even call that my favorite KC track now, because I'm more partial to the Discipline quartet and the Double Trio, but no other KC since has had that level of influence.
2/Next, I'd have to pick Hope for Happiness, which I heard early in 1970 in my new friend Mike's attic in a heavily altered condition.  That track (in fact, the entire Soft Machine 1 album) resulted in me being more interested in avant and dada prog than in the symphonic prog of Court.  It isn't a stretch to suggest that absent that album, I wouldn't have discovered Henry Cow and gone the whole R.I.O. route.

Supper's Ready and 2112 were the songs that got me specifically deep into prog. Before that I just listened to some prog bands without actually getting into the genre as a whole.
If you like King Crimson, come over to the KC Discord server! https://discord.gg/6AYBxBD

As Dylan says : " We're a changin' all the time ".
Just 2 tracks in recent years changed my way of thinking in many ways ;
Meshuggah - 'I'
Anthrax - 'Among The Living' track of the same album.
............totally sold me on the extreme way of things,
Of course, loved Magma and VDGG for decades, and Maiden have been in my life for over 30 years, but........

Baba O'Riley because it got me interested in prog and then Tarkus solidified my interest and made me an ELP fan for life.

hmmm this isn't an easier questions to answer due to the ageless timeline of mine being a hopeless nature of my own jagged jaded journey to self focus on the music which I alone found for my self! older families members passing on there choices which ranged from Genesis Tull Yes ELP ect so it a two pronged answers so its:

Genesis = Supper`s Ready
Marillion = The Web  
welcome to my own minds expanding mindfulness
