Greatest Long Rock Songs in History

The Contenders: Page 6

101 White Lightning - Def Leppard
102 I'm Going Home - Ten Years After

This song as performed at Woodstock should have a special award enshrined in the rock hall of fame!

103 The Fountain of Salmacis - Genesis
104 Lucretia My Reflection - Sisters of Mercy
105 Ballroom Blitz - The Sweet
106 Ghost Love Score - Nightwish
107 The Poet and the Pendulum - Nightwish

It's rather sad to see comparatively simplistic songs dominate all music top 10s from the same old bands. This song is, in my opinion, far more deserving of the #1 slot for it's unparalleled force, beauty, and extravagance. I'd say if more people had even heard this song, it would be significantly higher. Think you'd disagree? Listen for yourself, all the way through.

108 Soldiers of the Wasteland - Dragonforce
109 Coma - Guns N' Roses
110 The Prophet's Song - Queen

This song is simply amazing. My favorite from A Night At The Opera. Yes, it is better than Bohemian Rhapsody!

This is one of the greatest songs of Queen which should be in top 10!

Even better than "Bohemian Rhapsody," if you can believe that!

111 Sky Pilot - Eric Burdon & the Animals
112 Time Has Come Today - Chambers Brothers
113 Bluebird - Buffalo Springfield

Rare long version is over 11 minutes.

114 La Villa Strangiato - Rush V 1 Comment
115 Soothsayer - Buckethead
116 Close to the Edge - Yes

18 minutes of pure Yes. Sliding guitar, wailing synths, brilliant composition. The entire band works in sync.

117 Delirium Cordia - Fantômas

All these songs on the list are good, but not that many are long. Bohemian Rhapsody is only 5 or 6 minutes. THIS song is long. 64 minutes. And it's amazing

118 Albuquerque - "Weird Al" Yankovic

This song is over eleven minutes long and may be the artist's best. It tells a long, amazing story and really rocks.

119 Sister Ray - The Velvet Underground V 1 Comment
120 Hurricane - Bob Dylan

Raw spirited poetry in your face!
