Blame Hey Jude, but there have been some very long songs that have made the radio. For the purposes of this page, please
stick to songs with lyrics, that are intended for radio play (singles).
Entries Beginning with H
"He's Simple, He's Dumb, He's the Pilot," Grandaddy
Seems like several songs seamlessly melded together.
"Heart of the Sunrise," Yes
The last track off of "Fragile."
Lenght:19 minutes and 7 seconds
A great song and album. Rush is one of those bands I have always liked, I don't play them much, but when I do it is a good thing.
This song is on the album "Midian."
The best known long pop song, and perhaps the first to break the 7 minute mark and still hit number one at a time when a three minute single was still considered the standard.
"Hocus Pocus," Focus
A shorter version (a little over 3 minutes) is what's normally used on the radio. This song is best known for all its yodelling
This was the second track from Winwood's "Roll With It" album.
"Home By The Sea," Genesis
The first and the second ones put together in one track.
I don't care how good of a song is, it should not go past 6 or 5 minuets. plus, this song is so boring, it would bore a person to death.
Green Day's second longest song from the album American Idiot
The second longest song off of Grand Funk's "Closer To Home" album, released in 1970.
Full title being "The Hopeless Opus or the Great Battle of the Unfriendly Ridiculous". Lyrics are only in the later half. Dont know if indie pop counts.
You can come in, but you can't get out
Said to be 3 minutes on the album so radios would play it (=
This is actually about a story of Rubin Carter who was accused of murder at a bar in 1966.
