i swear to god the longest song ever was Sonic doing his EAR stuff in 1994 at a club in Hollywood, the song was so long I *left*, went home to check on a party in progress at my house, *came back* and it was STILL going on!

i'm pretty sure i remember hearing that a John Cage piece for organ was started a few months ago that won't finish for something like hundreds of years. anyone else know more about this?

Heard about this - yes.

Actually have anything of use to say about it - no.

Curious enough to read a thorough explanation when someone who knows about it comes along - totally.

Long songs off the top of my head:

Manuel Gottsching - E2-E4 is almost 60 mins (it's divided into track names, but it's all one song)
New Order's "Peter Saville Show Soundtrack" clocks in at 30:13
Spacemen 3 - "Rollercoaster" is over 17:00

one of my favorites is the "bausatz noto infinity" thing carsten nicolai did, he carved up four pieces of vinyl the way thomas brinkmann does to make endless loops of clicks and thumps. he then arranged them to be spinning on four turntables simultaneously to make longer and more complex loops. i think i remember him explaining in the wire that he could adjust the rpm's between the turntables to create absurdly long loops. i suppose if he kept adding turntables and records he could make the loops arbitrarily long.

Longest song I've heard that isn't a jam-session or classical music is probably Green carnation's "Light of day, day of darkness" which lasts almost exactly 60 minutes.

If we count ambient we can get into stuff like Robert Rich's sleep concerts etc, I suppose...

Goldie's 'Mother' album version clocks in at around 62 minutes if i'm not mistaken

Yeah, and it feels twice as long. Has anyone here actually managed to listen throughout that track more than once?

Tuomas (Tuomas), Monday, 25 August 2003 10:37 (11 years ago) Permalink

no, but perhaps the intention was never to make something that would be listened to repeatedly. i quite like the idea of a 'one-off' experience.

i don't think i've ever heard the 43 minute (or however long) version of The Orb's 'Blue Room' though

no, but perhaps the intention was never to make something that would be listened to repeatedly. i quite like the idea of a 'one-off' experience.

I liked the drum'n'bass part which came somewhere mid-track, but Goldie's vocals are so horrendous I could never listen the whole track again, and skipping them with the CD player would be too much a trouble. I'll never watch "Patch Adams" again, either, but I wouldn't call it a "one-off experience", more like "shite".

Tuomas (Tuomas), Monday, 25 August 2003 11:15 (11 years ago) Permalink

is there a difference between song and composition that could help narrow the field here?

long things: driver UFO - Dead C (22 mins); Jerusalem - Sleep (58 mins), 1st track on the teeth of lions rule the divine album - that's half an hour; there's some hour long BORIS stuff as well...

I'm pretty sure this is the winner: Marathon by Mark Mallman. He is a local singer/songwriter/eccentric punk Billy Joel guy in Minneapolis that did a song called Marathon that lasted for 26 1/2 hours. He performed it at a bar called the Turf Club and subbed in and out musicians in shifts (he stayed the whole time)....I went three times during the duration and it was quite amazing. He had over 300 pages of typed lyrics written. here's a little more details.

Even someone with only passing musical knowledge should know that fifteen minutes is nowhere near the length of the longest song ever.

Curt1s St3ph3ns, Monday, 25 August 2003 18:02 (11 years ago) Permalink

THe longest song I've heard is Green Carnation's "Light of Day, Day of Darkness." Honorable mentions:

Sleep - Jerusalem - 52 minutes
Dream Theater - Change of Seasons - 23 minutes
Opeth - Black Rose Immortal - 20 minutes
Edge of Sanity - Crimson - 40 minutes
Symphony X - The Oddysey - 24 minutes
Subhumans - From the Cradle to the Grave - 16 minutes (that's fuckin long for a punk song!)

Andy Cross, Tuesday, 26 August 2003 04:30 (11 years ago) Permalink

The longest midi karaoke file that I know of is Marillion's 'Grendel', which comes in at around 17 and a half minutes. Which is a whole lotta midi.

But the laurels for longest song must surely go to Remonstrance. They play till they're unplugged - which is sometimes for days. They're the David Blaine of musical endurance.

Subhumans - From the Cradle to the Grave - 16 minutes (that's fuckin long for a punk song!)

There's apparently some obscure Eighties hardcore punk song--recorded as an attempt to create the longest hardcore song anyone would bother to record--out there that lasts thirty minutes. According to the 'zine review I read, it ends up with the singer singing "I'll Tumble For 'Ya" over and over again.

Scaredy Cat, Wednesday, 27 August 2003 20:59 (11 years ago) Permalink

i'm sorry, but 639 years is a whole lotta years, i suspect the organ'll break down before the piece is done. are they gonna rotate the organists, or just put weights down on the keys and come back every couple of years? and how is 639 years really as slow as possible, i mean, couldn't they possibly go on another year? then 639 wouldn't be the slowest possible. plus, if they just decided last-minute (of course, on the scale of this piece, last-minute could actually mean a few years) to extend the piece, it's just fuck up the meter. of course, only god would notice, but he'd be mightily pissed.

This bit of that BBC Cage article is delightful innit:

The performance follows a legal case in which composer Mike Batt was forced to pay a six-figure sum to Cage's publishers, who accused him of plagiarising a silent piece of music.

Anyone know anything about this?

i'm too lazy to look it up myself, but if you do a google search for "john cage" and "mike batt" you'll probably get a million hits. the case played out in just the last two or three years. the basic issue was that batt included a silent track on a cd and, as a joke, credited it in the packaging as a "cage/batt" song. it wasn't the silence that sparked the suit; it was the songwriting credit. because of the credit, cage's publishers wanted royalties. a bizarre suit, to say the least.

the longest song ever was composed and is/was/alwayswillbe conducted by the great maestro, god. some, like descartes, have called the piece "harmony of the spheres." god clicked his baton four times (it's in 4/4, natch) and it was off. it might end or it might not, depending on the whimsy of the maestro.

this is dumb.

"Blue Monday" is pretty f-ing long, isn't it? 7 and a half minutes, possibly.

Also, I'll cast my vote for Satie's "Vexations," which is around 1,700 minutes long and has, unlike many of the longer songs on this thread, been performed live in its entirety.

Or, in the spirit of the first poster, how about my own composition, "Im Anfang War die Tat," consisting of an unspecified number of performers hitting a single gong once in unison every six seconds for twenty-two minutes, to be repeated 1235781297509812751923597986798403163746 times?

>>But was the album version #1, or just the single? THe single is about 4 minutes, yeah?

Hey Jude was a stand-alone 45, never included on an LP until the grab-bag "Beatles Again" comp from 1970 (and even then, only in the US). Wasn't there some yarn about extending the ending so that it would be a second or two longer than MacArthur Park? Not even sure that MacArthur Park made the top spot in the UK. Anyway, longest UK No1 is, rather depressingly, Oasis' "All Around The World", wich apparently clocks in at 9'38". (Shortest UK chart topper, for the record, is Adam Faith's "What Do You Want", at 1'38".)

the band sleep has a song called dopesmoker that is on a double lp released a few years back that runs about 63 minutes and 31 seconds and im actually listening to it right now. i realize that this is an old thread, but i though that the sleep classic deserved its mention. though im not a stoner, i love this stuff, and i think its hilarious when the first line of lyrics kicks in around 8 min. and a half and the guy bellows out the line "drop out of life with bong in hand." these guys used to be in i think asbestos death, and they have been very influential to stoner metal and doom metal and sludge since then.

I vote for that Mars Volta song that ended the last record ... even though I think it lasts a little more than a half hour, it loses nothing in the way of intensity or tempo until the requisite relaxed warble segment about 20 minutes into it. because of that, the thing feels like it goes on for about 90 minutes.

It annoys me when people refer to instrumental compositions as songs. Songs have singing.

Hi Geir!

I hardly think that opinion is limited to Geir. Beethoven's piano sonatas are not songs. Schumann's Liederkreis are songs. It seems like a pretty easy distinction.

K I just thought this would be fun. My songs I know arent as long as the ones you know and I dont really know those songs. but I have a couple that are around 9 minutes long
Bon Jovi-November Rain

Ok so I have a few more
Fleetwood mac-17.18-"The Madge Sessions"
Jimmy Eat World-16.11-Goodbye Sky Harbor
Prince-25.59-The war
Alright so thats just from me. Thanks People.

Actually I think it's Michael Jatas with "Love Is Hurting Me", it's like fifteen minutes! You can check it out by going to putfile.com and typing in football and looking for the one sayin greatest.
