'Epic' songs

Recommended Posts

Hey all, I just wanted to step in and inquire about everyone's favorite epic songs. I'm talking about songs like Stargazer and Don't Wake the Lion. I've been on a kick lately and I'd like to discover some new favorite songs! Are there any hidden gems out there?

 

cheers,

 

JS

I love any epic by Edguy, Avantasia or Theocracy.

 

A non HH epic i love is Dire Strait's "Telegraph Road". A simply awesome song.

Could you describe what an 'epic' song is? I'm not sure if I completely understand.

By epic I take you mean long songs.

 

If so one of my favs is "Heading for Tomorrow" by Gamma Ray, which clocks in around 15 minutes.

Also "Halloween" by Helloween.

That was exactly what I was thinking. The longer the better....I guess.

Well then I need to check my Dream Theater and Fates Warning collections and I'm sure I'll add some more tunes to my list. :tumbsup:

 

Here's another goodie:

"Sign of the Southern Cross" - Ronnie James Sabbath :banger:

Yessir, Dream Theater's Octavarium is one of my favourites. And Neal Morse's Sola Scriptura is pretty much one epic after another.

I've mentioned this a couple times,

 

I Spend My Life Just Loving You - SLY

 

I absolutely love this song, and, even though it's only 8:16, it's as epic as anything else.
