I'll go for Iron Butterfly's In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida (17m10s).
Like A Hurricane or Cortez The Killer. i beat you.
End of thread.
Red house painters

Sao Paulo - Guillemots
The Island - The Decemberists
Dark Mavis and Cancer - Mansun
and Broken Social Scene - It's All Gonna Break
about an hour long and crushingly impressive
mogwai-helicon 1 (government commisions version)
One Million Billionth Of A Millisecond On A Sunday Morning by The Flaming Lips?
Beauty of a song. 9:25 long.
fucked up's 'year of the pig', which is 18 minutes and 38 seconds of epic punk rock perfection.
My band has a song that's 18:31. I'm not happy about Fucked Up exceeding this by 7 seconds...
with feedback at the end, or something. if it fits the song, of course.
Nice, I just stumbled across this thread while listening to Reverend Bizarre's Teutonic Witch, which weighs in at an epic 29m05s.
Dominion. 29 odd minutes from 45 minutes of recording. Awesome.
Her Name is Calla - Condor and River.
Condor and River.
Saw them support twilight sad the other night and they were brilliant. Just downloaded the E.Ps as well.
Great song for walking home from work at 5 in the morning.
joanna newsom - only skin
although others mentioned in this thread are full of brilliance.
respect is due - dismemberment plan.
and million dead - the rise and fall
those come to mind
Television - Marquee Moon
Pulp - My Legendary Girlfriend (is this 7 min+, actually?)
The Cure - Disintegration
Mono - Halycon (Beautiful Days)
Doves - The Cedar Room
Underworld - Dirty Epic
erm, and loads more too. if i was on my computer with all my music on, i'd do a good list
10 minutes 25, and utterly terrifying to boot. Also The Cedar Room by Doves
but no-one's gone for 'Mogwai Fear Satan' which is
1) At least 16 minutes long
2) The best track they (or anyone else) have ever recorded.
without a fucking doubt
Whoever said 'Oh Comely' as an epic track can get fucked.
At 7m 0.2s
...post-rock, IDM, drone, ambient classical, or any of the usual stuff, since it's ALL long, and I'd be here for weeks listing the damn things:
Low: Do You Know How to Waltz?
Hope of the States: A Heart Can Stop a Bullet
Youthmovies: If You'd Seen a Battlefield
didn't they once play that with Godspeed?
I wish I could have seen that.
That said, it's not up to the original's standard.
by David Ford is beautiful
Sonic Youth - Trilogy
SFA - Slow Life...just in at 7 minutes
Autechre - Eggshell
Underworld - Pearls Girl
...Any by Mogwai.
Now, it's not as good as their later works, but I love that piece so much.
It pisses all over The Egg.
So to speak.
Even Flow (live) - July 9th '03, NY, NY official bootleg.
The version of Present Tense on that album is also sick.
that can be put off by the length of an album sometimes?
Sao Paulo is amazing though, yeah.
had at least 4 tracks in their top tracks of 2007 that weighed in over 11minutes.
bro's and the past is a grotesque animal has been said. dan deacon's wham city starts off silent but still manages 10mins+ of greatness.
and then ost and kjex come along and funk it up with milano mongolian (a thrilling mungophony in two parts).
i'll go with the bolero
A Plague of Lighthouse Keepers by Van Der Graaf Generator. 23 mins of pure bliss.
2nded - thank god someone said it
It's a one song and it 50:27 long, and it's ace!
by The Cooper Temple Clause
oh...and one by metallica! i love it!
The Microphones - The Glow (11mins)
It's really good.
Boredoms - 7-> (Boriginal)
is epic. 13 minutes 40 seconds long and is amazing to listen to.
40 minutes long, grrrrrrrrr, listen to it and put some hairs on your chest.
has been the best "long song" answer since 1976.

Pure Reason Revolution- The Bright Ambassadors of Morning 11m 50s
I do believe it's one of the most perfectly produced pieces of music ever.
The 7 minutes just fly by, and its one of the few songs that I take the time and trouble to set the sound up properly, pour myself a drink and turn the lights off to listen its every detail.
Clairvoyage by Dominique Leone, as remixed by Lindstrom? 12 minutes of gorgeous Balearic Beach Boys house.
Joanna Newsom - Only Skin
Crescendo - are you out there?? 21+mins epic house, orchestra, choir the lot.
Pallas - crown of thorns 9:23
IQ - the last human gateway 19:57

Red House Painters - Katy Song
Elbow - Newborn
Lightspeed Champion - Midnight Surprise

There are lots more, some by the bands already named above. The 3rd track on Yanqui U.X.O by GY!BE is pretty special but I don't remember the name of it.
Tetragrammaton, Take The Veil Cerpin Taxt, Cygnus...Vismund Cygnus
Oh, and most of yndi halda's stuff. And Sparrows Swarm & Sing
Always gets me in the mood for a nice bout of mass murder
... Return of the Beautiful perhaps. Or perhaps Two Winters Only.
oh, and Flowered Up's Weekender.
The Mars Volta - Casandra Geminni (32m, 32s)
I couldn't be bothered to list all The Mars Volta songs, I only did one per band.
Stay Together by Suede, that's 8 mins long originally I believe?
Actually, two that will have me stoned to death but:
United States by Smashing Pumpkins, the solo in the middle is a bit bobbins but the rest is pure sabbathriffheaven
I also always count Rend It and 23 Beats Off by Fugazi as one song as they go so well together (the latter should qualify alone, I'm being controversial though)
COM? by Mono is utterly brutal, wondeful noise
Washing Machine (the track) by sonic youth is really nice even if Diamond Sea is the obvious highlight off that one...
Child in time - 12 mins long, dukebox value too.
