"Everybody," Madonna Length:6:02
Now that is one of Madonna's longest songs! - ?!
"What Would You Have Me Do?," Local H Length:25:15
Technically, the song only lasts for 15 minutes, with the last 10 being random street noises, but even then it's still a long track.
"Fool's Overture," Supertramp Length:10:52
Most of the lyrics are in the end, but there is even a Winston Churchill recording in the song
"Tales From Topographic Oceans," Yes Length:81:04
This double LP is technically just one song broken up into four parts. If you do accept that it is actually one song, then it is very likely the longest song in the history of rock. And I have heard all of it (except for the excruciatingly awful third side) played on the radio at various times.
"A Light In The Black," Rainbow Length:Around 8 Minutes
The closing track on the band's second album.
"European Son," Velvet Underground Length:7:46
A pretty long song for the days when most songs were a little more than 3 minutes.

Wow that's long.

"Flying," UFO Length:26:30
This album is distinctive for its title track, which is the longest song the band ever recorded. The track finishes with a backmasked reading from Rudyard Kipling's Gunga Din: "Tho' I've belted you an' flayed you, By the livin' God that made you, You're a better man than I am, Gunga Din!" and a slowed phrase "Yes we know, it's all been done before before before".
