"Fading Lights," Genesis Lenght:10:17
Last track on "We Can't Dance".
Brian Kelly
"Fair Warning," Todd Rundgren Lenght:8:07
This came from Todd's longest-running album "Initiation", which was on a single album and had 67 minutes of music!
Paul Warren
"Fairy Tales," Anita Baker Lenght:7:55
This was probably the longest Anita Baker song ever recorded. The outro is long and repetitive, and, I might add, boring. The single edit is only 4 minutes and 16 seconds long.
Isac
"Family Reunion," Joe Budden Lenght:6:50
Evan
"Fast Alles Konstruiert," Peter Schilling Lenght:6:45
Reggae influenced song. From Schilling's 1982 german debut album "Fehler Im System". Translated into English as "Lifetime Guarantee" for his 1983 english counterpart album "Error In The System"

"Flying," UFO Lenght: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".

"Fool's Gold," The Stone Roses Lenght:9:53
On the radio, it's 4:15.
UltraPrime
"Fool's Overture," Supertramp Lenght:10:51
A rather long song by Supertramp, with a rather long intro, the first lyrics are not heard until 5:25, almost exactly halfway through. Due to the first words of those lyrics, some people think the song is called "History Recalls."
Ra'akone
"Fool's Overture," Supertramp Lenght:10:52
Most of the lyrics are in the end, but there is even a Winston Churchill recording in the song
rad
"For Crying out Loud," Meat Loaf Lenght:8:42
The greatest love song of all time and also i think by far the longest
Meatloaforever
"Foreplay/Long Time," Boston Lenght:7:47
Appropriately named. The slash may make it look like two songs, but it's a single track and gets radio airplay (on oldies stations) in its entirety.

"Forever Young," Alphaville Lenght:6:10
This is the dance remix version of "Forever Young" by the German rock band, Alphaville. Originally from the album 'Forever Young', the original album version of the song is 3:44.

"Free Bird," Lynyrd Skynyrd Lenght:13:08
At over 13 minutes, that's a LONG pop song!
Jane Farnsworth
"Free Bird," Lynyrd Skynyrd Lenght:10:08
My early radio station, Rock Channel, played a full 10 minutes version of the song and I like that version because in this version not feature fade out ending. This is the longest pop ballad/slow rock songs ever in the world! Also, the longest coda ever after "Layla" by Derek and the Dominos and "Hey Jude" by The Beatles.

"Free Bird," Lynyrd Skynyrd Lenght:9:07
The live version is 13:50, but we only track album and single lengths here.

"Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding," Elton John Lenght:11:08
This is the first song to be introduced on Elton John's critically-acclaimed "Goodbye Yellow-Brick Road" and is also a fan favorite as well.
Paul Warren
"Funkytown," Lipps, Inc Lenght:7:51
1980's #1 hit (for four weeks in the late spring of that year), "Funkytown" is considered the last Disco hit (although that should be considered a misnomer, because dance music has continued to this day). But in many regards, "Funkytown" marks the end of an era of the original Disco music in regards to it's use of a heavy bass line in the instrumental parts. The original seven minute 51 seconds version was on the lp, "Mouth To Mouth" and became a very popular Disco/dance tune of 1980 (as well as #1 in several countries and on Billboard Magazine's HOT 100 charts). "Funkytown" had a single edit of 3:48. "Funkytown", as well as the lp "Mouth To Mouth" was written by Steve Greenberg and produced by Steve Greenberg, for Casablanca Records, at Sound 80 Studios in Minneapolis and was based on Greenberg's wish to move from Minneapolis to New York City. The lead vocalist on the hit (actually the only vocal heard, with Greenberg's production seeming to duplicate the voice to be heard as more than one) was from Cynthia Johnson who was the Miss Black USA in 1976. In the middle of the 1980's, the group Pseudo Echo would have cut a New Wave version of "Funkytown" that is still very popular as well.
Peter
"Future," Paramore Lenght:7:52
As with other longest songs that released earlier, this is their longest song from their eponymous album released in 2013. This song is also rarely using fade-out and fade-in effect that not used in any pop songs.
