Hi all, I found this forum by way of a thread from 2010 on top 10 6min+ songs. What I am looking for is something similar, yet subtly different.

Repeat to fade is a pet peeve of mine, especially in songs longer than the 'single' format where the track is not constrained by time.

I am looking to expand my list of "Epic Ending" songs, and I hope you can help.

To qualify, the track must fulfil 3 criteria:
- Over 6 minutes long
- Must end, not fade out
- Must be Epic

I'll kick things off with my own top 10 Epic Endings:

1. Dire Straits - Sultans of Swing (Alchemy Live)
2. Guns n; Roses - Rocket Queen
3. Iron Maiden - Phantom of the Opera
4. Bruce Dickinson - The Book of Thel
5. Dream Theater - The Big Medley
6. Dream Theater - Pull Me Under
7. Van Canto - Fear of the Dark (Iron Maiden cover)
8. Faith No More - War Pigs (Heretical I know, but far prefer this to the original)
9. Queensrÿche - Eyes of a Stranger
10. Focus - Hocus Pocus (the Helloween cover is also pretty Epic)

I look forward to seeng your Epic and Ending song lists (and expanding my own )

Thank you.

I can't think of a whole list of rock songs at the moment Nitebytes but one that does come to mind that isn't on your list is A Light In The Black from the Rainbow Rising album from 1976. I think it comes in at 8 minutes plus and doesn't fade out. Another that comes to mind is Fanfare For The Common Man by Emerson Lake & Palmer which comes in at 9 minutes plus and doesn't fade out (from vague memory?)
