Floyd was the only band who could consistently pull off the 20 minute song and not butcher it; in fact, they made some classics out of 'em.

Don't you just love bands who can throw 3 hour long concerts built on about 7 songs?

I have a live version of Stranglehold that comes in at about 20 minutes. It's a lost art really, not to many bands due the long songs anymore. Pink Floyd was the best at them though, it always flowed well and never got boring.

Meatloaf was awesome at writing long songs. Who agrees?

Dire Straits was also pretty good at writing long songs. There's a couple songs on the Love Over Gold album that are quite long, and you got Money For Nothing which kicks ass.

The Allman Brothers Band - "Mountain Jam" ; Eat a Peach/Fillmore East time = 33:40 / At the Ludlow Garage (Disc 2) = 44:00
"Whipping Post" ; At the Fillmore East = 23:05

Led Zeppelin - "Dazed and Confused" ; How the West Was Won = 25:25
"Whole Lotta Love" ; How the West Was Won = 23:07

Pink Floyd - "Atom Heart Mother Suite" ; Atom Heart Mother = 23:44
"Echoes" ; Meddle = 23:28

Grateful Dead - "Dark Star" ; Live/Dead (The Golden Road) = 23:18
"Blues for Allah" ; One from the Vault (Disc 2) [Live] = 21:01

Yes - "Dance of the Dawn" ; Tales from Topographic Oceans (Disc 1) = 22:37
"Ritual/Nous Sommes Du Soleil" ; Tales from Topographic Oceans (Disc 2) = 21:52

I'm giving a few examples from some different bands of the longer songs I've currently got on my iPod/iTunes. It seems as though Yes and Pink Floyd are the two bands that have songs in the 20+ minutes range that are off of studio albums; the rest are live stuff.

It's because their music isn't all the same. It's progressive and it changes within the song. It has a beginning, a climax and an ending. It's like a big musical story whereas jam bands like Grateful Dead just pretty much jam with the same chords for 30 minutes.

Edit: Eight minutes isn't very long. Every song should be 8 minutes, that's the perfect length.

Dazed and Confused, on How the West Was Won is actually a medly of three songs, Dazed and Confused, Walter's Walk, and The Crunge, while Whole Lotta Love is a medly of five songs, Whole Lotta Love, Boogie Chillun, Let's Have a Party, Hello Marylou, and going. I'm not sure if these really count as long songs, I guess they do.

Yeah, I know their medlies, but technically I think that they'd still be considered "one song", but I'm not sure.

I don't have any of the actual times, but the Dead had some versions of Dark Star that got pretty lengthy. Anywhere from 10mins to 90mins. Sometimes longer, depending on how high they were
