Well, there is a song by Dream Theater called Ocatvarium. 25 minutes long.

Then they made another song called Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence which is 42 minutes long.

Beat that.

Yeah it I don't get how they can have a song that long and make it all sound like one song? I mean you'd have solos that don't sound anything like eachother..

Effectively....the really long songs/tunes are really just an assemblage of different pieces joined together...BUT usually intertwined with a recurring theme that creates it as just the one piece.

Ryan, you kind of got it really......don't think long songs/tunes are just endless three minute songs repeated over and over until they become fifteen minutes long !.....they're a collection of ' movements '.

Yup..Good rifts..See ah that's all I care about is a song that sounds good both the music and the guitar itself. I don't care about how fast you play it. And yes..that one ac dc song. You can just keep playing it over and over and just add random lyrics lol

The lyrics mean a lot, they seem almost relevent...even today.

I'll have to find a link and have a listen! ( HINT HINT!)

Sorry, I was a bit slow there.

It's not the full thing but just the middle 256. It also doesn't have Rick Wakeman, but Patrick Moraz. It does have the 'I get up, I get down' bit however.

"Then they made another song called Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence which is 42 minutes long.

Beat that."
I can't wait for the scratch remix version.
Seriously, there was a record "I am the beat"
which had the last line recorded on the "lock groove" so it would play untill the record wore out.

The lock groove is the circular grove in the middle of the record where the stylus rests at the end of the song; it's usually silent except for a click 45 times a minute.

In the very real sense that it only takes 42 mins to wear out a record. or did you really mean 42! which my calculator tells me is 1.4050061177528798985431426062445e+51 and probabblly is longer than the record would last.
