Entries Beginning with D
"Dancing With The Moonlit Knight," Genesis
First track off of 1973's "Selling England By The Pound"
One of the King of Pop's great hits :)
Mainly instrumental, with Schilling whispering on occasion
"The Day That Never Comes," Metallica
This one is so long that even the audience isn't sure when it ends.
It's 20 seconds shorter than 'Aja' which is on the same album "Aja".
Taken from their 1971's self-titled debut "REO Speedwagon."
A version of Traffic's hit
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).
"Decline, The," NOFX
The Decline... Awesome song by NOFX... awefully long though.
"Delirium Cordia," Fantomas Lenght:74:17
Despite what people might say (or think) there are lyrics. "One, Two, Three, Four", and some other things that I don't quite hear or understand.
love this song. two part song and he wrote it for his ex-girlfriend or ex-wife
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.
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 over 500 verse song was named the world's longest pop song by the Guiness Book of World Records.
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.
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…
"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!
"Do Me, Baby," Prince
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"
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.
Dogs are used to represent the megalomaniacal businessmen who destroy themselves and those around them by obsessing over their egos and their careers.
Wow, that's...quite an achievment, Roger.
Sixth track off of 1986's "Invisible Touch"
"Driving the Last Spike," Genesis
This was a song about the builders of England's railroad system, many of whom died on the job.
Duchess, not to be confused with the character from Disney's "The Aristocats"
"Duke's Travels," Genesis
