Greatest Long Rock Songs in History

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Papa Was a Rollin' Stone - The Temptations
42 I Want You (She's So Heavy) - The Beatles V 1 Comment
43 Stargazer - Rainbow
44 Paranoid Android - Radiohead

One of their greatest period.

45 The Call of Ktulu - Metallica
46 In My Time of Dying - Led Zeppelin
47 Arriving Somewhere But Not Here - Porcupine Tree
48 And Then There Was Silence - Blind Guardian
49 Cygnus.... Vismund Cygnus - The Mars Volta
50 Warning - Black Sabbath
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.

Definitively a masterpiece from genesis!

A masterpiece from start to finish.
