Stratovarius - Fantasia

Fuck knows, there's a bunch of Merzbow tracks on my iPod that are over an hour long.
I had a song by a band called "Nanocyborg Uberholocaust" that was six hours long but I never listened to it properly.

Song meaning that it must have lyrics? A song must have lyrics, and some of the original poster's selections certainly do not. I'm almost certain that he misunderstood the meaning of the word. Here follows the longest songs and pieces I've ever heard. They first two are the longest being around twenty minutes, and forty minutes, respectively. The rest are songs or pieces that are around ten minutes

Beethoven: Sonata Pathetique--roughly twenty minutes
Vivaldi:Four Seasons--around forty minutes
Liszt: Hungarian Rhapsody--nine minutes
Green Day: Jesus of Surburbia--eleven minutes
Chopin: Funeral March--around ten minutes; varies with the performer
Grieg: The Peer Gynt Suite--at least an hour

That's all of them. I've certainly heard others, but none of them rival these in length. Many songs tend to become repetitive after a while. With pieces, there are so many places to be inventive. Creatively combining any instrument you have can result in some of the greatest things known to history. Lyrics limit the fantasy. With pure sound, there is no limit to where you may go. Songs without breaks or transitions, unless executed like a god, should never exceed the listener's attention span. In a sense, lyrical works are harder to direct.

The longest song I enjoy is Comforting Sounds by Mew. It runs about nine minutes long. Songs longer than ten minutes are too long for me.

Sorry OP, but a game soundtrack isn't a valid song.. and Stan's 6 minutes isn't that long at all really..

Some of the longest tracks that I've got on my ipod that aren't mixes or compilation tracks are..

Pendulous skin - Mastodon - 22:16

Genesis - Supper's Ready - 22:55

Nirvana - All Apologies - 31:32

I've got to say that I think the whole concept of having a track that long is a bit of a ridiculous novelty, you can't realistically enjoy the song properly if it's that long.
