Best 7 Minutes and Longer Songs


The Top Ten

1 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin
2 Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd
3 Master of Puppets - Metallica

(For fifth I have a problem, since in RtL I like Bells the most, but still riffs to me sound too sabbatish (very simple, almost amateurish). MoP wins on all courts in their entire catalogue - it stands head and shoulders above anything recorded in all metal genres with best Death albums, Time Does Not Heal, first two Testament classic albums with the others who have at least three instant classic studio releases that already stood or will stand the test of time for sure : Iron Maiden (Powerslave, BNW, AMOLAD), Fates Warning (A Pleasant Shade of Gray, Disconnected, Darkness In A Different Light), Dream Theater (SFAM, Train of Thought, because&SL), Judas Priest (Sad Wings of Destiny, Screaming for Vengeance, Painkiller).

4 Stargazer - Rainbow

For a long time this was my favourite song of all time. It's still up there. - IronSabbathPriest

This is an epic masterpiece. - Metal_Treasure

5 Child in Time - Deep Purple

Beautiful song that slowly increases in intensity as it reaches a guitar solo climax then falls again and increases in intensity a second time to finish with an epic outro. One of the most beautiful songs ever written. - fidelcanojr

Child In Time is amazing. A true masterpiece! Way better than Stairway To Heaven which is one of the most overrated songs on list, except for maybe November Rain

6 Alive - X Japan
7 Hallowed Be Thy Name - Iron Maiden
8 Layla - Derek and the Dominos
9 One - Metallica

Ridiculously awsome in every way pausible. I love the lyrics too.

10 Jesus of Suburbia - Green Day

Best song ever. Meaningful lyrics, great band. This is probably Green Day's best song they ever wrote.

Definitely up there with stairway to heaven and free bird - MojoSpaederman
