Epic Songs: The 71 Best Songs Over 7 Minutes Long - Part 4 of 4

The other day I accidentally sorted my iTunes Library by Song Length, and it inspired this week's blog series:  Epic Songs - The 71 Best Songs Over 7 Minutes Long. Like all of my previous lists, this one is tough to rank. In a week I will probably look back and wonder why I ranked a certain song higher than another. As always, if you're interested in purchasing any of the songs, click on the song title - or scroll to the bottom for a Spotify playlist. Did you miss the other parts of this series? Start at the beginning. Here are the Top Ten songs over 7 minutes long. Cheers, Bret
