#1 “I AM” by Theocracy
Theocracy has a lot of great songs that are over 7 minutes long, but this is my favorite.
#2 “Prodigal Son Suite” by Keith Green
In addition to being one of the best long rock songs ever composed, this is also one of the greatest story songs ever written.
#3 “November Rain” by Guns N’ Roses
This unforgettable epic is the longest song to ever enter the top ten on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.
#4 “Laying the Demon to Rest” by Theocracy
Yes, more Theocracy. They can’t help but dominate a list of the best long rock songs, since epic-length masterpieces are their specialty.
#5 “High Hopes” by Pink Floyd
In the tradition of a previous classic, “Comfortably Numb,” Pink Floyd delivers another haunting masterpiece with “High Hopes.”
#6 “The Gift of Music” by Theocracy
This is the last song by Theocracy on the list. I promise. If, however, I’d made a “10 great rock songs over 7 minutes” list, Theocracy would have probably provided the other three songs.
#7 “Ground Zero” by Kerry Livgren
Picking up where he left off with the rock band Kansas, Kerry Livgren created another quirky symphonic classic with this song.
