Just the first 5 off the top of my head:

My Only Love Roxy Music
Down by the River Neil Young
Playmate of the Mouth Procol Harum
When the Train Comes In Sleutelbos
Cousin Dupree Steely Dan
:)

I saw Neil Young do this with Booker T and the MGs backing him up about 10 years ago. They must have jammed on Down By The River for 20 minutes. Simply awesome.

Topic starter  

Midnight Rambler- Let It Bleed Rolling Stones

The Stones have done some great live version of that song over the years - I'm surprised, though, that you picked the original version. Especially as you picked "Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out" as one of your top 5 albums! I consider the version on Ya-Ya's the definitive version, and if there's a better live album than that, I've yet to hear it!

:D :D :D

Well, this one is tough as most of these lists are for me. There goes Vic trying to make me think again.

Before I list the songs, I will say that the Love Over Gold CD by Dire Straits is perfect for the long song. Aside from Industrial disease, the other 4 songs are long fill it up rather nicely. Gotta be in a mellow mood though.

OK, my list:

Shine On.. (all parts) - Pink Floyd
Brothers In Arms - Dire Straits
Bat Out Of Hell - Meat Loaf (great motorcycle riding tune)
Bittersweet Symphony - The Verve (odd and long story behind this one, but Jagger and Richards now have the song writing credits to this one)
Sympathy For The Devil - Rolling Stones (prefer the live version they've been doing recently)

'Green Grass and High Tides' - the Outlaws
'Utopia' - Todd Rundgren
'Lazy' - Deep Purple
'Autobahn' - Kraftwerk
'Keep Me Hanging On' - Vanilla Fudge
'Dreams I'll Never See' - Molly Hatchet

If I claim to be a wise man , it surely means that I don't know .

I agree! And also Alchemy! :D

First I also included Brothers In Arms in my list but I changed it. As the idea is the songs maintain a coherence between them I prefered 'older ones'. But we can add a new Knopfler list, for example, with Going Home (4'58").

I wanted to work Dream Theater's Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence (41 minutes) in, but it's such a complete song it wouldn't go with anything else.

First 5 (59:07)
A Change of Seasons - Dream Theater
Dogs - Pink Floyd
Part I - Acknowledgment - John Coltrane
Hey Baby (New Rising Sun) - Jimi Hendrix
Yellow Ledbetter - Pearl Jam

Another 5 (43:53)...
Cygnus X-1 Book 2: Hemispheres - Rush
Eriatarka - The Mars Volta
not for you - Pearl Jam
Like Suicide - Soundgarden
Holy Wars... The Punishment Due - Megadeth

Bass player for Undercover
