Long Songs ?

Hi gang I'm looking for any really long songs you know off and I mean past 6 minutes thanks for any help

Re: Long Songs ?

Strange question Phil. There's heaps. Lots of prog albums had songs that took up complete side of an album.

Too many to mention, but Tubular Bells comes to mind.

House of the rising sun. Silver machine seems long.

Bohemian Rhapsody.

Late 70's & 80's saw loads of long songs like Donna Summer I feel love but I suppose the practice was to edit them for 7" releases.

Eric Burdon & The Animals-Sky Pilot
Bad Company-Shooting Star
Argent-Hold Your Head Up
Fleetwood Mac-Oh Well
Cream-Spoonful
Doors-Light My Fire, Riders On The Storm
King Crimson-In The Court Of.....,21st Century Schizoid Man
Led Zeppelin-Staiway To Heaven
Neil Young-Like A Hurricane
Manfred Mann's Earthband-Blinded By The Light
Rolling Stones-You Can't Always Get....
Pink Floyd-Time
Thin Lizzy-Whisky In The Jar

All except the last one are over 6 mins. Not all radio hits, but are well known, although some had the longer album version and shorter single version.
