songs that are long but don't feel long, and vise versa

songs that don't feel long
stairway to heaven
day in the life
shine on you crazy diamond
in my time of dying
songs that DO feel long
light my fire
hey jude
trampled underfoot
sympathy for the devil

"Midnight Rambler" flies by, while "Can't You Hear Me Knockin" drags. I always stop it when it gets to the lounge section.

i can't really agree with any of your choices for those that DO feel long, except Light My Fire. i constantly hear people asking "uh, does this song EVER end?" when it's on the radio.

hey jude always feels too short to me! one of my favorites...

a song that DOES feel long: my sweet lord - george harrison. very very repetitive. still a great one though.

Television's Marquee Moon to thread. Uuh, "Stars and Sons" by Broken Social Scene could go on for-evah and I'd be happy.

The Cure's 'Pictures of You' is over seven minutes, but feels more like four - just so good you don't notice the length.
