Three Friends is great, but Starless is a strong contender for the best prog song ever.

Voted Starless, because it's one of the best songs ever written, but Three Friends is a good track.

Once three friends
Sweet in sadness
Now part of their past.

In the end
Full of gladness
Went from class to class.

(sorry about the hole lyrics policy but it is very little lyrics in it so I saw no reason not to)

I just don't like King Crimson's music in general, so Three Friends gets my vote by a long way.

I think it has been well established on this forum that NO song will ever beat Starless in a head to head poll.

Fine, i'll make a legitimate post to avoid blurred intentions. Tongue

I think these polls are silly because there seems to always be a clear winner and the only intention of making the polls is to show you like something just as much as the other.

Neither of these songs are my favorite by their respective bands, but Starless has the edge. Three friends is too short and is a great outro but cannot be compared to Starless.
