Greatest Long Rock Songs in History

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Sympathy for the Devil - The Rolling Stones
42 Papa Was a Rollin' Stone - The Temptations
43 I Want You (She's So Heavy) - The Beatles

God, this hypnotic tune... It�'s amazing...

44 When the Levee Breaks - Led Zeppelin
45 Paranoid Android - Radiohead

One of the greatest songs of the 90s.

One of their greatest period.

46 And Then There Was Silence - Blind Guardian
47 The Call of Ktulu - Metallica
48 In My Time of Dying - Led Zeppelin
49 Arriving Somewhere But Not Here - Porcupine Tree
50 Cygnus.... Vismund Cygnus - The Mars Volta
51 Supper's Ready - Genesis

Pfft, for all those who think songs like Bohemian Rhapsody and Hotel California are long, listen to this masterpiece. Those songs are fantastic, but as a lifelong fan of Genesis, this song is amazing for me. I also reccomend Echoes, Shine On You Crazy Diamond, and Dogs by Pink Floyd, Close to the Edge and The Gates of Delirium by Yes, and Thick as a Brick by Jethro Tull if you're looking for other really long songs.

Like Echoes by Floyd it doesn't feel like over 20 minutes. It takes you on a fascinating ride.

One of the greatest long songs in rock history!

Definitively a masterpiece from genesis!
