So, what is your favorite Dream Theater song?

Myns probably

Another day : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EUPgSOwTIAA

The intro and solo, is really some side of Petrucci I never really heard before this. Awesome guitar riffs and solo. And super awesome sax stuff! Way off the track of what they ussually do.

Metropolis is real good too.

Edit: I just have to add "The Killing Hand" aswell, best song of their first album imo biggrin.gif

Being a good guitar tech is a very different and extremely difficult job, so why not leave it to a pro?"

Since they are one of my favorite bands I cant choose a single favorite, but Stream Of Conciousness is amazing.

You mean i have to choose?!?!? ohmy.gif


its so close between so many songs- but i can only narrow it down to

"stream of consciousness"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cF6tCPlFaO8

and "in the name of god"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZM04-ysM7g...feature=related
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eXstvXu5sPs...feature=related

yep i really love the train of thought album
...

i should probably explain my choices- stream of consciousness just keeps developing the same idea throughout and everytime i listen to it i hear new things- so well written and so damn memorable.

In the name of god- because the first time i heard that chorus, i froze . i was in awe- it was just epic. My jaw dropped and i was completly blank minded, just trying to absorb what i was hearing. It still has a similar effect on me now (just lacking the element of surprise this time tongue.gif )


Those are my top two i think smile.gif

Lol are you kidding me, here are some of my favorite

Under a Glass Moon
In the Name of God
Stream of Conciousnous (however you spell it, I hate English)
Lines in the Sand
In the Prescence of Enemies
Constant Motion
Forsaken
Dark Eternal Night
Octavarium
Ytse Jam
Hell's Kitchen
Anna Lee
Home
Strange Dejavu
The Killing Hand

HOWEVER, my favorite DT songs and consequently favorite songs ever are........

1- Metropolis Part 1
2- Take the Time
3- This Dying Soul
4- Honor Thy Father
5- The Glass Prison
6- The Dance of Eternity
7- Endless Sacrafice
8- Erotamia
9- Trial of Tears
10- Blind Faith
11- Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence
12- The Root of All Evil
13- These Walls
14- Another Day
15- In the Name of God
Yea, I am pretty much like the biggest Dream Theater fan ever!!!

But WAIT. What would a best Dream Theater song list be without a WORST Dream Theater song list.

Here's mine

1- Pull Me Under. I HATE THIS SONG. This is why I made threads against Dream Theater when I started listening to them, because this song, being the first one I ever heard is pretty much crap, and I will still enforce that today.
2- Take Away My Pain
3- Hollow Years
4- Surrounded
5- Status Seeker
