Listening to Whos Next, and reliving the epic magnificence of Baba O Riley and The Song Is Over, then wondering what other songs out there would make the Top 100 Most Epic list?

Yours is No Disgrace - Yes
Axis Bold As Love - Jimi
Echoes - Floyd
Les Brers / Mountain Jam - ABB
Terrapin Station - Dead

....... etc?

Radar Love

The ABB would have torn this up with Butch on drums, Warren singing, he & Derek tearing up the guitar parts and Oteil..... Man!

I saw a Motel 6 commercial the other night where everyone in the commercial is singing along (or playing Air Drums) to Radar Love. It's funny.

Not as long as some of the other choices, but I'm going to say "Dream On." Love the new Walmart ad with it

Some obvious ones...Whipping Post, You Don't Love Me, Les Brers, Mt Jam, some special versions of Dreams & Jessica, bunch of stuff from the last lineup with Derek and Warren lighting it on fire.

The Dead and Jerry seem to have a bunch. Love the Help On The Way > Slipknot > Franklin's Tower combo. Also the Hard To Handle from 8-6-71. Jerry's After Midnight/Elanor Rigby. Feel like Jerry's Positively 4th Street from 12-21-79 is pretty epic. Lots of this stuff.

Ten Years After - Help Me from Fillmore East...the guitar solo that never ends!

CSNY 4-Way Street Southern Man.

Some cool Neil Cortez and Hurricane editions would qualify.

Stones - Can You Hear Me Knocking.

Grand Funk - Heartbreaker or Mean Mistreater

Vanilla Fudge - You Keep Me Hanging On

Issac Hayes - hyperbolicsyllabicsesquedalymistic

Wilson Pickett - Engine Number 9 Get Me Back on Time

Stevie Wonder - Living For the City

Funkadelic - Maggot Brain

Floyd played Shine On You Crazy Diamond parts I-IX all together as one on the 1974 tour rather than the two sections they recorded for the record or played on the 75 and 77 tours. Hearing it all as one start to finish is pretty cool.

Fleetwood Mac's Rattlesnake Shake editions from Boston Tea Party.

Guess I seem to think about longer songs in these terms, must be something about an extended journey that doesn't appear to be ending and takes you unexpected places. Can probably think about alot more.

Firth of Fifth - Genesis. The way that Hackett takes Gabriel's flute melody into the stratosphere is magic.

And, cliche or not, Freebird is pretty epic.

The most epic song I can think of although it's been such an overplayed and beaten warhorse; Stairway to Heaven

2nd would be The Who off Quadrophenia; Can you See the Real Me....Doctor! DOCTOR!!!!
