I have only heard "Nights In White Satin" through the media channels that I've ever been exposed to. Are the other ones really that "smash" of a hit?

Though not a hit in my corner of the planet, and I didn't hear it until decades after it was released, I thought I'd vote for Rain and Tears.

Procol Harum. The singles of Aphrodite's Child and the Moody Blues are way too sweet for my taste.

Aphrodite's Child, because of their country.
And then one day you find
Ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run
You missed the starting gun

As a music therapist (in training) Night in White Satin is one of the few prog-related songs I can use. Voted for that.
