    Some real prog, and if I understand the term right, poignant:

    Entangled - Genesis
    And you and I - Yes
    Ocean gipsy - Renaissance
    The ministry of lost souls - Dream Theater
    Lazarus - Porcupine Tree

    Hi gcmusic and thanks for your input. "A Day in the Life" is indeed an extremely poignant song from one of the most seminal albums of all time: Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

    white knigth, sea song (like most of the music of the canterbury scene) maybe is not exactly in the style of genesis or Elp ,but is definitely not "folk rock"
    Bob Dylan is folk rock

    Art Rock, thanks for throwing in Entangled and Lazarus, I knew I'd forgotten some!

    And a +1 from me for A Day In The Life, certainly has it's moments of poignancy. (Did I also have Across The Universe in my first list?)
    EDIT: No I didn't, so there it is.

    Would that be before or after he went electric?

    After listening to excerpts of In The Court of the Crimson King, I would definitely add "I Talk to the Wind" and "Epitaph" from King Crimson.

    What a tremendous song. Also, Camel's Airborn.
