Pink Floyd Money



Yes I know that Pink Floyd is listed on this site as Psychedelic rock but this song is Progressive rock as it features odd time signatures.

How about this...

to take the place of the mud shark in your mythology...

How about Alice Cooper's "Ballad of Dwight Fry" or "Black Juju"? Alex Harvey "Faith Healer"  Elton John (& Paul Buckmaster) "Four Moods/Seasons"  Simon & Garfunkel  "Save the Life of My Child"Angel "Tower," "Long Time," or "Mariner"

I've got the album Rebel and this is certainly the only track that is prog but it is an absolute beaut!

This is a ballad from an italian singer-songwriter who started in the 60s and has just announced his definitive retirement. He has never been a prog artist and never considered himself so, but try to imagine how this song would sound with a prog arrangement. 




One of the firsts thread that I opened was on the song Radici, a true prog song (with Mellotron). YEAR 1972

Just to refute his most zealous fans claim that Lou Reed was Rock's master storyteller nonpareil. This is a Stan Ridgway masterpiece from 1989 and one of the very few songs deserving of the description 'cinematic'

Anybody growing up in Australia in the later 70's thru the 80's would remember Dragon, who were on of the top teenybopper hitmakers especially late in the 70's (and also a lifestyle whose debauchery was the stuff of legend), but they came over from New Zealand where they had two very weird albums in 1974-5. Ages ago I had the first one, 'Universal Radio' on LP.  I could only remember snatches of the title track, but it's on Youtube.

I wasn't sure if it'd qualify, as it starts off sounding a bit like The Dukes of Stratosphear, but then it goes into this sort of Santana meets Gong thing. It's pretty lame really, but anyone who only remembers 'Are You Old Enough' or 'Lives of Ordinary Men' should give it a listen. That is Marc Hunter singing as far as I know.

I usually find that if I hear an urban-style song that I like, it's usually Beck. 

So, I have actually started to listen to his music as he releases it.

"Inscriptie" by the Romanian jazz band Marius Popp off of the album Panoramic Jazz Rock, which I adore, and was recommended to me by one of the ex-posters at PA (Alex, aka harmonium.ro, who sadly hasn't been around in years):



I was looking for specific kinds of music, and it was a right-on-the-money recommendation. I've been lucky to get many good recommendations over the years from various posters.

The rest of the album is fairly standard, but very good post-bop and non progressive rockish jazz. As for other albums, it's straight jazz, jazz fusion, and some jazz-rock, but nothing else that I would imagine coming from a band to be included in Prog Archives. Talented band.

This would fall (pun intended Dead) under Krautrock or space/psychedelic rock I think.

I was forgetting this. Bassoon, Flute, Percussion, little keys and Voice. Lyrics which are a poetry describing a hot summer day. Francesco Guccini - Giorno D'Estate - 1972

It's all Prog. If you think it's progressive then it, in fact, is.

Judas Priest - Rocka Rolla certainly had some prog undertones. In fact I sort of wished they had carried on in this vein instead of the heavy metal route.

A few other tracks from their later albums might count as well.

I don't think this one has been mentioned yet. Who remembers this band(and album)?
