quick lunch...

I managed to eat my entire lunch today in the time it took for Guns N' Roses November Rain to finish on the radio. Strangely enough, I found that to be very interesting. Yes, it's a slow day and little things like that interest me.

So is that considered eating too quickly or just a long ass song?
I believe it's around 9 minutes.

Which makes me wonder what the longest song really is.

Pink Floyd's Echoes? Lynryd Skynryd Free Bird? Led Zeppelin's Stairway to heaven? Iron Butterfly's In a Gadda Da vida?

What's the longest song you know of?

You Enjoy Myself by Phish is over 40 minutes - the version on "Live Phish 14"

also, any song that plays on my son's sit and spin, it's the one without the on/off switch...

I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I had this kind of time, but I just Googled "world's record for longest song"....you know, out of curiosity?

Apparently there is a 1000-year-old song that began playing Jan 1, 2000. Here's a link with more:

It also links to a live stream of the music. I didn't listen yet.

Unrelated but so weird that I had to share: the google results had a link to a video of the guy with the world's longest tongue. I watched and it was a You-Tube clip from a talk show where he was a guest.

No idea on the world's longest pop song, though. I do think Stairway to Heaven is pretty long. What about Freebird? It must be up there too!

I think that Meatloaf's Paradise by the Dashboard Light is probably up there to. I think that song is never ending.

So funny I was going to say a Phish or Dead song. Someone beat me to it!

My son is all GNR all the time right now thanks to Guitar Hero.

Longest song, Led Zeppelin's Dazed and Confused has got to be in the running.

There is a song called As Slow As Possible being played on a church organ in Germany right now, and it's a 20-minute piece that has been lengthened to 639 years! The first three notes took 18 months to play. It should stop playing at some time in 2639.
