My nominations are: The Man Don’t Give A F**k-Super Furry Animals
You might not know this one, but it’s 30 minutes of anti-establishment psychadelic dance rock, that manages to be uplifting, despite the bleak message.
Sinnerman- Nina Simone
Tell me someone who doesn’t like this…Nina’s glorious voice, double rhythm clapping, and the “Power” part makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.
Free Bird- Lynyrd Skynyrd
Fab guitars, free love and the open road…what’s not to love?
Since the guitars are lousy, there’s a lot not to love about Free Bird
Atom Heart Mother by Pink Floyd – rock on an epic scale. Echoes by Pink Floyd Shine on You Crazy Diamond – Pink Floyd Whipping Post (live at the Fillmore) by the Allman Brothers Band In Memory of Elizabeth Reed – Allman Brothers Thick as a Brick – Jethro Tull The Soft Parade – Doors Moon in June – Soft Machine (and all the other songs on their Third album. My Generation – The Who (live version on “Live at Leeds”) Low Spark of High-Heeled Boys – Traffic Lullabye of Broadway – Golddiggers of 1935
Add William Tell Overture, 1812 Overture, Milhaud’s Le Boeuf Sur Le Toit, plus Beethven’s Symphonies #3, 5, 7, and 9 and Violin Concerto if you want to consider classical music.
that’s not really that long compared to some of the others listed - it just has that spoken interlude that makes it seem long.
If you’re talking *Meatloaf * - the title track from **Bat Out Of Hell ** is a really good long song
Alice’s Restaurant The Legend of the USS Titanic by Jamie Brockett (OK, maybe this one doesn’t belong in any “best of” discussions, but I have some fond memories of finding KAAY in the late evening and catching Bleaker Street and once in awhile this song would be on. “497 1/2 feet of rope!”
