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 U
From their latest album, 2020, it tells the sad tale of a combat veteran and his journey from boot camp to suffering from PTSD.
"Uncle Meat Film Excerpt Part I," Frank Zappa
They smacked the audio of an unfinished movie onto audio and it’s available on cd. Why didn’t they just release the screen footage instead?
Great song, and really long, like most on Mental Notes many time changes
"Une Unit a Paris," 10cc
Just one year before Queen releases "Bohemian Rhapsody", 10cc makes an epic-style song with a lot of vocal talent.
Sometimes boring, sometimes soothing.
When the sun goes down and the day is over. When the last of the light has gone.
"Untitled (a.k.a. Track 13)," Queen
This was a hidden track from the posthumously released album Made in Heaven. It is officially Queen's longest song, taking up an entire side of the recent vinyl rerelease (until then, it had only appeared on the original CD). It is quite unlike any other Queen song; it is an ambient track, with each minute of the song representing a chapter from Queen's history between 1973 and 1995.
a.k.a. Untitled 07 C; Levitate
From Dark Side of the Moon, original version opens and with a bit of background "chatter" over the music, and ends to seamlessly transition into "Any Color You Like"
