Epic Songs: The Best Songs Over 7 Minutes Long - Part 1 of 5

The other day I accidentally sorted my iTunes Library by Song Length, and it inspired this week's blog series: Epic Songs - The Best Songs Over 7 Minutes Long. Like all of my previous lists, this one was tough to assemble. This will be an ongoing series, and you can proceed to the next part by click on the link at the bottom. And while you're at the bottom of the page, check out the huge Spotify playlist which collects these tracks. If you have some epic favorites, please leave them in the comments section. Cheers, Bret
