Greatest Long Rock Songs in History
The Contenders: Page 7
You won't believe it. This song brings banjos, fiddles, violins, metal, electric, etc. Guitars with folk, gospel, and rock all in one package. I don't know how mark did it, but he hit the nail on the head with this one!
A criminally underrated song fron the granddaddy of shock rock himself.
A beautiful song that finds a delicate balance between anger and peacefulness before leading into the album's intense and pulse-pounding closing track, the self-titled "Alpha".
This song really shows the power this band can maintain when they have an extended running time to work with. A lot of their tracks are around 3-4 minutes in length normally, so this and "Burn" are their only two examples of extended tracks, which is disappointing to a certain extent because they really should have more songs than two that are over the 6 minute mark. This song is amazing and will keep you coming back for more.
I am shocked that there is not a yes song on the list
Another favorite of deejays on FM album rock stations when they needed a potty break.V 1 Comment
Oh yeah. "Shall I bring them to your gate,
Or Sad- Eyed Lady should I wait" - Billyv
Long version is around 13 minutes
Another psychedelic Doors epic.
Ginger Baker's drum solo is one of the most epic in history!
