Best Epic Song - Non Zep

Recommended Posts

So we all know about Achilles, Carouselambra, and of course Stairway.

But what about "Won't Get Fooled Again" by The Who, or "The End" by the Doors, "Foreplay/Long Time" by Boston, etc.

What's your favorite Epic long song, Non-Zep? Has to be longer than 7 minutes, just saying! Live versions are fine, and versions where it might really be two songs, but they are always played one right after the other without a break are fine.

Personally I prefer "Telegraph Road" by Dire Straits.

I very much enjoy Mark Knopfler's music, both solo and with Dire Straits. So I will also go with Telegraph Road,

Also, another much loved epic rock tune for me is Bruce Springsteen's Jungleland.

I would prolly go with Comfortably Numb. Both studio or all live versions are just great. I dont think it has 7 mins on studio version, but live versions meet that criterium, so here we go :P.

To me, an epic needs to beyond the 6 minute mark, and not a "rah rah" type of good time rock song.

So here would be mine for today:
