    Along the lines of "what's your iTunes x" posts, what is the longest single song you have in your library? Not including environmental (30:02) and mixtape (30:00) tracks, my longest is:

    Fantasia On A Theme of Thomas Tallis by Ralph Vaughan Williams - 18:15

    Perhaps this will be a good place to pick up some good classical/symphony track suggestions :D

    I just imported the entire dark side of the moon cd into one track so I guess that's over 40 minutes.

    My longest track is the Old Testament (no idea how that got in here) by God which is 49:42:15 long.

    I've got quite a few mixes that are two hours long too - DJ Tiesto being the biggest culprit.

    It's really too hard to tell the difference between mixes and songs. They range from about nine hours down to thirty seconds. Most of the long stuff is either dance or classical.

    The Doors "Mystery Train" runs around 29 minutes. It's a bootleg from a concert in Seattle. I picked it up at Vinyl Solution about 12 years ago.

    Silver Apples of the Moon- Part B- Morton Subotnick (14:59)

    all my pink floyd albums are ripped as single tracks :eek: except for the wall, so those are really long. the longest seems to be "pulse." but my longest real song is "whipping post" by the allman brothers from "at filmore east" which comes in at 23:04. i also have some audio tracks from internet radio which are like 3 hours but those *really* don't count :p

    Well... excluding symphonies, interviews, olde time radio-plays and whatnot... my Top 5 are:

    1. A Long Day - The Polyphonic Spree (36:30)
    2. Instrumental - John White (23:09)
    3. Night Falls On Hoboken - Yo La Tengo (17:42)
    4. Sister Ray - The Velvet Underground (17:31)
    5. Less Than You Think - Wilco (15:04)

    Unfortunately, due to my short attention span, I find it pretty painful to listen to songs that are longer than 2:30 :eek:

    I don't know where this track came from but I have "Part 1 Winter 2000" by Bad Boy Bill, it's 4:43:06. If I don't include Audiobooks or techno music, it's "Slide Show" by Travis at 18:31, though that shouldn't really count cause it has a couple of minutes of silence, so it would then be "Piano Concerto No. 26 in D Major" by Mozart at 13:37. And if I don't include classical music, then it's "Down Once More...Track Down This Murderer" from The Phantom of the Opera at 13:34.

    My longest song (12:55) in iTunes would be #36
    from the Dave Matthews Band.

    Although, I do have a song on a CD that lasts about 25 minutes (but its not on my Power Mac's HDD so it does not count).

    I don't know whether this counts because it's not a song, but my longest track is the Ending Theme from Final Fantasy VIII, 13:20. Also have Albuquerque by Weird Al Yankovic, it's 11:20, but it's more of a screamfest than a song :p

    Longest real song is Porcelina of the Vast Oceans by Smashing Pumpkins, 9:21.

    I'm feeling mighty funky, kinda fine..

    I haven't completely moved over all my music from my PB, but right now my longest song is;

    "That Was a Crazy Game of Poker" by "Of A Revolution"

    It's 20:43 in duration and it's from a live show of theirs at the Tower Theater in Upper Darby, PA.

    Found a winner on the PB, "Dazed and Confused" by "Led Zepplin", 25:25 in duration from "How The West Was Won (Disc 2)"
