Marillion and Fish: The Top 50 Songs

image from hamelinprog.com

Fish was born Derek Dick on April 25, 1958. From 1981 to 1988, he was the lead singer of British neo-progressive-rock group Marillion. After four albums, he went solo and the band soldiered on with singer Steve Hogarth, with whom they still tour and record today.

In honor of Fish’s birthday, here are the top 50 songs by Marillion (with and without Fish) and by Fish as a solo artist. The list was figured by seeing what songs were featured most often on 18 compilations and 72 (!) live albums as well as a few best-of lists.
