Genesis - Supper's Ready
Yes - South Side Of The Sky
King Crimson - Starless
Pink Floyd - Dogs
Jethro Tull - Thick As A Brick (but if you want one that isn't a whole album long I'll vote Baker St. Muse)
ELP - Tarkus

The shortest song here is like 8 minutes or something, I'd say that's pretty proggy LOL
Porg for short. My love of music doesn't end with prog! Feel free to discuss all sorts of music with me. Odds are I'll give it a chance if I haven't already! :)

^ Yeah, Home by the Sea may not be a very obvious choice for Genesis, but it's still a great song... perhaps the best from the Collins era, and proggy enough for me... a great example of a really 80's sounding prog song, evolving with the sound of music of the time while keeping some prog elements (mostly the long instrumental passage, actually), instead of desperatley trying to remain in the 70's.
