I started thinking about this list a few weeks back, but I decided to post it after talking with Zacky Vengeance from Avenged Sevenfold earlier this week. He told me about a song on their upcoming “Life Is But A Dream…” album that’s “epic”, meaning long.
I guess I never really thought about it much, but if a song is unfolding and interesting, I don’t care if it’s long or not. Most long songs also feature many twists and turns, which I really like. I want the artists to take me on a journey…. that is what these songs do.
