I might have already contributed this but just in case im fixing the time estimate.
This track on the namesake album consists of several parts and summarizes the whole album.
Avra's most recent song, and by far her longest. When Avra recently announced that she was writing this song about the snow in October this year, one of her fans pointed out that the title was very similar to that of another epic song, namely Guns 'n' Roses' "November Rain." As such, she decided to make this song an epic as well.
This was when the Bee Gees has gone more symphonic.
Sounds pretty much like a jam throughout, albeit a very melancholy one. Still a great song because the lulls and crescendos are used so well.
This may be Fleetwood Mac's longest song to date and the most experimental for them as well.
"Oh, Thank You Great Spirit," Chicago
Another long song with extended instrumental section from Chicago.
A song with piano music, and an acceptance of the inevitable
This is a stonking 5 minutes and 26 seconds longer than the original John Lee Hooker version! (There is a live version that's even longer. It's on the "Giants of Rock: Live" double album free with the Daily Mail - see the "Hidden Messages" page for more.)
"One For The Vine," Genesis
This song is actually TEN FULL MINUTES!
"One Nation Under a Groove," Funkadelic
A song about "dancing to freedom"
"One of Us," Ghettobillies Lenght:19:21
"Only In Dreams," Weezer
Caps off their debut album.
"Open up, said the world at the door," The Move
Before ELO and Wizzard, both Lynne and Wood worked with each other in the band The Move. And this song contains one of the best drum solos ever.
Soothing melodic music.
This song is awesome, every verse sounds like the end of the song.
"Out of Fetters Psyche Tear Off," !T.O.O.H. Lenght:7:21
"The Owner Of A Lonely Heart," Yes
The band Yes had a career revival of sorts in the fall of 1983 with the album "90125" (which was meant to parody the barcode # for the album, not the later famously made by FOX-TV zip code of Beverly Hills). "90125" appealed to the New Wave audience of the time. On the album appears this tune, at the length of 4:25, there would be a later extended mix of the song put on the CD versions of the album at 7:05. "The Owner Of A Lonely Heart" went to #1 on both sides of the Atlantic, landing at #1 for two weeks in January 1984 on Billboard Magazine's HOT 100 charts. The song went to #1 on the basis of the video that actually included the use of the later reworked extended remix and the length of the video that was used in many "video" dance clubs at the time was 6:44.
