What Are Longest Songs In Your Music Library?

Recommended Posts

I thought it would be very interesting to see what are the longest songs everyone has in their music library.

Feel free to do a top one, top five or even top ten of your longest songs.

There's a few things I'm expecting to come up; metal, progressive rock, post-rock, soundtracks, classical and maybe a bit of avant-garde.

Let's see!

 

Also feel free to mention;

Longest band name in your music library?

Longest song name in your music library?

Longest album name in your music library?

I thought you meant by actual song length. Is there a way to find out in iTunes?

That would be by Pink Floyd: Echoes (23:28) and Dogs (17:07). And in the third place is Rime Of The Ancient Mariner (13:39) by Iron Maiden.

What does he mean by length if he isn't talking about duration?

 

The longest song by far is the ending theme to Final Fantasy VI at 22:02.

 

Longest song name is Wraith Pinned to the Mist and Other Games.

Longest songs:

 

Jäästä syntynyt/Varjojen virta - Moonsorrow (Viides Luku – Hävitetty, FIN, 2007) - 30:10

Tuleen ajettu maa - Moonsorrow (Viides Luku – Hävitetty, FIN, 2007) - 26:19

Rundtgåing av den transcendentale egenbetens støtte - Burzum (Filosofem, NOR, 1996) - 25:11

Atom Heart Mother - Pink Floyd (Atom Heart Mother, 1970, UK) - 23:44

Echoes - Pink Floyd (Meddle, 1972, UK) - 23:31

Jotunheim - Moonsorrow (Verisäkeet, FIN, 2005) - 19:28

 

If parts 1 through 9 of Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Wish You Were Here, 1975, UK) count, then that weighs in at 26:01.

 

Korven Kuningas - Korpiklaani (Korven Kuningas, FIN, 2008) lasts for 21:56, but the actual music ends around the five and a half minutes mark.

 

Longest song name? Probably "Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict" (Ummagumma, 1969, UK).

White House Battle by Lorne Balfe, from the MW2 soundtrack. 34 minutes, 53 seconds.

Offspring - Smash (10:40)

 

So suprisingly my longest song is punk... but I suppose it doesnt really count seeing that smash is really a few songs bunged together with a 5 minute interlude of complete silence. So the longest whole song I have is Guns n' Roses - Coma (10:16).

An easy challenge thanks to one Sufjan Stevens album.

Illinois features a lot of long titles but by far the winner is track 2:

"The Black Hawk War, or, How to Demolish an Entire Civilization and Still Feel Good About Yourself in the Morning, or, We Apologize for the Inconvenience but You're Going to Have to Leave Now, or, 'I Have Fought the Big Knives and Will Continue to Fight Them Until They Are Off Our Lands!"

Damn good song, too.

For longest songs, first is some Tallest Man on Earth concert I dl'ed from NPR, then a comedy show by Steven Wright. But here are my longest songs (excluding classical stuff):

 

1. Rush - 2112 (20:37) (sup 7th grade)

2. Can - Bel Air (19:53)

3. cLOUDDEAD - Our Name (19:41) (this doesn't exactly count because it's a pretty normal-length song followed by a lot of silence and a short hidden track at the end)

4. Yo La Tengo - Night Falls on Hoboken (17:42)

5. The Velvet Underground - Sister Ray (17:27)

 

Longest song names, I'm not sure, but I'm guessing it's something by Sufjan Stevens or Los Campesinos...

 

Band name:

The World is a Beautiful Place And I Am No Longer Afraid to Die
