I chose Stranger by the Minute, but Waiting is a CLOSE second. Which "radio friendly" PT songs is the best

EDIT: Forgot Trains :duh:

Trains isn’t radio friendly? :huh: That’s their most famous song if they had any so I’m a bit puzzled why it was excluded.

For the record, I went with Stranger By The Minute. After that, it’s Lazarus and Waiting for me.

Wrong project. That song was ok, though.

The radio edit version of Time Flies should also be included.

Where is Shallow? That was the song that got me listening to them. But I voted Blackest Eyes cause my 15 year old (at the time) teenage daughter liked it, so it must have some sort of radio friendly appeal seeing as she really does not care that much for prog rock. And Four Chords That Made a Million.

I totally forgot about Shallow. I didn't think Sound of Muzak was a radio song actually

As for Time Flies, I didn't think the shorter version was released past the music video

You only specified Radio Friendly, not actual 'singles releases'.  If actual singles, here's the list:

On the topic of “radio friendly” I think Stars Die would fit the category also as according to SW himself, it was the first PT song to have likely been played on the radio. However, my favorite arrangement of it is actually the stripped down acoustic version off We Lost The Skyline, not the studio recording.
