Top 10 Songs Over 20 Minutes Long

The Top Ten Songs Over 20 Minutes Long

1 Echoes - Pink Floyd

Love this track. Listening to it right now, as a matter of fact. It's excellent. - PositronWildhawk

My personal favourite rock song of all time! 23 minutes of brilliance!

Half an album! That's about 5-6 songs in one - mr_crossover27

The best track of all time. Pink Floyd are so damn good

2 2112 - Rush

It was hard for me to choose between Shine On You Crazy Diamond and this one, but I had to vote for 2112 - LizardKing99

How is this not number 1?

The dream is my favorite part.

2112 is one of the greatest compositions of the last century. It tells a story that pink floyd could only dream to tell in a whole album.

3 Octavarium - Dream Theater

My favourite part is 12:15-19:50, but every other minute is still breathtaking. My favourite song (and band) at the moment definitely.

Yep... Gotta love Octavarium from DT... LOVE IT! - BimmyJim

24 minuets of pure awesomeness plus nonthing boring just rock n rock and a little metal. I like it better than all songs on this list also six degrees and presence of enemies are heavier but still ausome but It can't beat octavarium

4 Lizard - King Crimson

The jazziest song ever. - IronSabbathPriest

5 Shine On You Crazy Diamond - Pink Floyd

Everybody can find a part of this song that they can relate to. It's impossible to not have some reaction to it. In addition, this classic's changing synth, guitar, and sax keep it extremely engaging.

Song length: 26:05 (all parts)

My second favorite Floyd song. Dogs is my favorite. Unfortunately, Dogs wasn't quite long enough to make the list.

Song length: 26:03 (all parts)

6 A Change of Seasons - Dream Theater
7 Supper's Ready - Genesis

Six saintly shrouded men move across the lawn slowly
The seventh walks in front with a cross held high in hand
And it's hey babe your supper's waiting for you
Hey my baby, don't you know our love is true?

This should be #1. Practically every other song on this list was inspired by it.

It's a Guaranteed Eternal Sanctuary Tune!

No comparison for this masterpiece

8 The Odyssey - Symphony X

Yep octavarium is a masterpiece but please this needs to be 2

9 Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence - Dream Theater

Just pushed this up to the Top 5 where it belongs! This song is a masterpiece that takes up an entire second disc on the massive album! Just listen to the Overture and you will know why!

This song played all the way through live is over 40 minutes long! ! !

10 Symphony No. 7 - Beethoven

The Contenders

11 Black Rose Immortal - Opeth
12 Crimson, Pt. 1 - Edge of Sanity
13 Tarkus - Emerson Lake & Palmer
14 The Gates of Delirium - Yes


15 The Divine Wings of Tragedy - Symphony X

The Odyssey is fantastic, but The Divine Wings of Tragedy is Symphony X's true masterpiece!

16 Thick As a Brick - Jethro Tull

Song length: 43:46 (both parts)

17 Symphony No. 5 - Tchaikovsky

This is sweet classical music!
Respect to human, who added this!

18 A Passion Play - Jethro Tull
19 The Revealing Science of God (Dance of the Dawn) - Yes
20 Karn Evil 9 - Emerson, Lake & Palmer

Should be ranked, higher. Don't know why it's not.

21 45:33 - LCD Soundsystem
22 The Remembering (High the Memory) - Yes
23 Ritual (Nous Sommes Du Soleil) - Yes
24 Symphony No. 25 - Mozart
25 Dopesmoker - Sleep
26 Atom Heart Mother - Pink Floyd

This should be in top 5.

Pink Floyd’s first epic... this is a true classic from such an underrated album. It’s about 23 minutes long and there’s not a single dull moment. A Jazz-rock Classic!

27 Rv 315 (Op. 8) - Vivaldi
28 Larks' Tongues in Aspic - King Crimson (43:00)
29 Duel With the Devil - Transatlantic
30 Illumination Theory - Dream Theater

Wonderful song

31 Voyage 34 - Porcupine Tree
32 The Strands of the Future - Pulsar
33 The Fountain of Lamneth - Rush

Beautiful song inspired by The Odyssey

34 The Greatest Show On Earth - Nightwish

Of course this doesn't hold a candle to Echoes or Shine On You Crazy Diamond, but I heard this live and I can only say that I was blown away, this is just amazing. - vr46

One of the most beautiful piece of music of all time

35 Art of Life - X Japan
36 Autobahn - Kraftwerk

When I was 18 a friend called this guy I was visiting and said 'Don't move. I have something I want you to hear.' He showed up about five minutes later and put on side one of Autobahn. We sat down and listened, STUNNED at this incredible album. You have to realize, there had been no sound like this up to that point in our lives. I was so taken by it that I was lead down the path of synthesizers and it completely changed by preference of music from that point on. Can't give this album enough credit.

37 Song of Scheherazade - Renaissance
38 Yoo Doo Right - Can
39 In the Presence of Enemies - Dream Theater


I enjoy songs like Six Degrees, Octavarium, ACOS, and TCOT, but this is my favorite!

40 Tubular Bells, Part One - Mike Oldfield

This such an amazing piece! This is better than Pink Floyd's Echoes and Genesis's Suppers Ready. - Slipperyjack40
