Ten Songs – Solstice Edition

OK guys I’m back.  Forgive me for not posting.  I’m still recovering from an awesome weekend in Chicago.  I haven’t done ten songs in a while.  Being that today is the first day of Summer, and the longest day of the year I’ve decided to list ten really long songs.  I was going to do ten Summer songs but I’ll do those another time.  Here we go ten really long songs.

10. Pink Floyd – Shine On You Crazy Diamond – I could have put a lot of Pink Floyd songs on this list.  I chose this ten minutes of awesomeness.

9. Traffic – Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys – I hear old fart DJ’s used to play this song when they needed to use the bathroom.  Hahaha must have sucked not having computers.

8. King Crimson – In The Court Of The Crimson King -  I always thought this was a cool song. I think this would be a great one for a band to remake and update a little.  I could totally see a metal band remaking this one into something really cool.

7. O.A.R. – Crazy Game Of Poker – This is always a fun song live.  I say oh you say ah I say…….

6. Creedence Clearwater Revival – I heard It Through The Grapevine – Ten minutes of grapevine grooving.  How can anyone not like CCR?

5. Neil Young – Ordinary People Part 1- Part 2 -  By far the longest song on this list.  This is so long it’s even kind of obnoxious. This song came out a few years ago on a stellar Neil Young album.  He still has it.  This song is so long there has to be two parts to it on you tube.

4. Peter Frampton – Do You Feel Like We Do? – This is the best live song ever.  I just love that cool thing he blows into.

3. Guns and Roses – November Rain – This is when GnR started getting too big.  Orchestra’s and pianos and what not.  But dammit I love this song.  How many guitar solos does slash have in this song? I think it’s 37.

2. Don Mclean – American Pie – Did this guy ever do anything else with his career? I wonder what he’s doing now?  Oh yeah counting all the money he probably made off this song..

1. Lynard Skynard – Free Bird – The mother of all long songs.  This one never gets old.
