Entries Beginning with D

"Dance Hall Days," Wang Chung Lenght:8:02
"Dance Hall Days" was released in 1983. It reached #16 on Billboard's Pop Chart, making them one of their biggest hit singles and also one of their Top 40 singles on Billboard's Pop Chart. Note that the version that lasting at 8 minutes and 2 seconds is the extended remix version of this song, more than plays the album version of this song twice.

From the 1969 album Live/Dead, I've heard it played in its entirety a few times by Deadhead DJs despite its length. As far as I know it is the longest rock song of the 60s.

Mainly instrumental, with Schilling whispering on occasion

Clever Name

This is probably the only Leonrad Cohen song this long, it is 2 minutes and 59 seconds shorter than Desolation Row by Bob Dylan (one of Leonard Cohen's idols).
"Deathbed," Relient K Lenght:11:05
"Decline, The," NOFX Lenght:18:19
The Decline... Awesome song by NOFX... awefully long though.
"Deep Learning," Gabriel Garza Lenght:45:33
It includes a short film, for Pete's sake!

This song tells a story between a man and a woman, who are in love. They are criminals, and later they die. The story continues on their second album, Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge, which begins with "Helena", a song taking place at a funeral.
Retard Girl
"Der Kommissar," After the Fire Lenght:5:43
Featured on their album, "Der Kommissar". Originally recorded by Falco.
Wisnu Aji
"Desolation Row," Bob Dylan Lenght:11:18
I'm surprised this one hasn't been submitted yet, this song is noted for it's length. The original take of this song (the version on Highway 61 RV is a later take) is a tone lower and played slow enough that although it didn't have any harmonica verses (the Highway 61 version has one separating the final verse from the rest of the song, and another after it), it is 40 seconds longer, and had that version been used, would have been Dylan's longest release until Highlands, on his 1997 album Time out of Mind.
"The Devil Glitch," Chris Butler Lenght:69:00
The over 500 verse song was named the world's longest pop song by the Guiness Book of World Records.
"Devil's Sweet," Chicago Lenght:10:07
Chicago VII featured several instrumental tracks with a heavy jazz influence. This instrumental track was the longest on the two-album set.
Robert Ballinger
"Diamond Sea, The," Sonic Youth Lenght:19:35
A very good song, despite the length and ear-splitting noise. There's also an alternate ending version, which is 25:50, and there's a radio edit, which is 5:26.
"Dinah-Hoe Humm," Frank Zappa Lenght:6:03
Clever Name
"Dinah-Hoe Humm," Frank Zappa Lenght:6:03

"Disco Inferno," Dread Zeppelin Lenght:6:56
A mix of the original Disco Inferno, Led Zeppelin's Kashmir, and a bit of Elvis' In The Ghetto thrown in!
"Disco Inferno," The Trammps Lenght:10:51
The last song off the "Saturday Night Fever" soundtrack, it's one of the few R&B songs I can stand listening to for 10 minutes! Of course they edited the song for radio…
"Disgustipated," Tool Lenght:15:47
The longest from Undertow
"The Divine Wings of Tragedy," Symphony X Lenght:20:42
"Do Me, Baby," Prince Lenght:7:43
"Do What You Like," Blind Faith Lenght:15:18
Great song featuring Steve Winwood, Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker, and Rick Grech. They each have a part of the song where they solo, leading up to Baker's huge drum solo before returning to the theme of the song and ending in deteriorating chaos. The drum solo is somewhat similar to the one Baker played in Cream's "Toad"
John Book
"Do You Feel Like We Do," Peter Frampton Lenght:7:19
Frampton's breakout hit includes extended sections featuring his famous use of a talk box which makes the guitar imitate speech patterns. The single version was edited down from the album track, which is over 14 minutes long!
Robert Ballinger
"Do You Feel Like We Do," Peter Frampton Lenght:14:15
Another song that was edited for radio, this was the final cut from the "Frampton Comes Alive!" album, and the station I listen to a lot is known to play the full 14-minute version.
