Very Long Songs

Yesterday I went to the movies with my family to see Bohemian Rhapsody and there´s a scene (no spoiler at all, because is part of the trailer) when the band is trying to sell the idea of this song as the lead single but the record company refuse, due to the fact that the standar is 3 minutos for playing a song on the radio.

 

Well we all know that maybe nothing has change on the radio even today but the streaming is another thing, and I think that the artist love to make their music without boundaries of any kind and this obviously includes the time.

 

Well here some examples of recent released songs that hits the 20 minutes mark

 

First the fantastic song Play by Dave Grohl with 22:36 long 

 

spotify:track:3ATAV8kiC5wg7U0eSMHlQp:small

 

Or this awesome song from the new album by Saves The Day 21:30 long 

 

spotify:track:6hHwZmxDX7QmpLJKcuiGSr:small

 

But that's the only songs that I got for more than 20 minutos, do you have any other one?

 

But hit the 10 minutes mark is easier (to find the song not to make it) in this case I got for you Kurt Ville Bottle It In 10:39 long 

 

spotify:track:3OmYIza8JWzrDQAUKJPC56:small

 

Or Deafheaven with the lead single for their newest album Honeycomb 11:04 long

 

spotify:track:0G0NKx220sZpjXC4LSoCkA:small

 

If you have more I'll be waiting, but if you want to check it out my Playlist for this matter you can do it this thread Long Long Long Songs.

 

Enjoy it!!!

Nice question! I was about to reply with a bunch of free jazz pieces, but then I saw the hard mode! And I could not remember any song longer than 20 minutes that fit the conditions. These were the less experimental/jazzy/ambient tracks I found. Was looking for IDM records (like the last autechre sessions), but some might consider them some experimental or ambient . Lamb's track is actually two songs, as well as mercury rev's verte sleepy rivers, but I think they are long enough on their own. Hope you enjoy it, in case you didn't already know these songs... tred my best english!

Just out of curiosity I took a look at the global top 50 and the median seems to be 3:30.

 

I don't have a whole lot of extremely long tracks in my library or playlists

(well, that I have listened to, honestly) :')

But one that came to mind is a single from a Sigur Rós album "Ágætis byrjun":

spotify:track:2fkPXXnPh0jhtwcTxLobqd:small

 

Most of good Sigur Rós tracks are long like that. :)

Why didn't I inspect Foobar's sorting/filtering capabilities before?
%length% GREATER 600 (that is 10 minutes) and no need to scan through folders myself! :')

 

Connan Mockasin has a tune called Forever Dolphin Love:

spotify:track:2TgEw8mRIuauwAHjUYD2kD:small

Found this artist through Amon and it stuck on me, mainly how nice it feels to listen to this when chilling out!

 

MGMT's Siberian Breaks is lovely. It's more like several shorter tracks joined together to form this longer tune.

spotify:track:70JkDeCPjhbh1eg55NLZLy:small

 

Lingua Ignota's "All B*tches Die" album has a few very long tracks, but I'll be honest here, I have only listened to the shorter ones so far. :') I have heard very nice things said about the longer ones though.

spotify:track:3UMApnBSwN8lHsG0s1ijxR:small

 

I'm a huge fan of Thomas Vaquié's "Ecume", which I love to listen to forwards and backwards. It also has one lengthy mostly beatless soundscape at the end. Not really what would be "music" to an average listener, but I really enjoy these things!

spotify:track:4tMuM8wlIpnNGlFgfwMBwG:small

 

Moa Pillar has this galloping 'spiritual techno' tune called Peacewalker. I still remember having a hard time walking in the morning after dancing to that in the club. :')
spotify:track:3LwwGo91O8hwckmlDWL5gX:small

 

And Djrum has one named the Miracle:

spotify:track:1GZbNZbwFtM3GofuywfmXn:small

Also a lovely chill tune.
