    I just really enjoy a good song that ends in a long repetition, something about it just moves me. Was wondering what some of your favorites are

    Beatles - Hey Jude
    Dave Matthews Band - Stay
    David Bowie - Memory of a Free Festival
    Death Cab for Cutie - Transatlantacism

    I know there's a ton more, but unfortunately I'm a 20 year old with the memory of a senior citizen. Anyone else really like songs written in this style?

    On SACD MCH mix--Elton John's Razor Face on Madman Across the Water. Different than the two channel mix. Kind of a jam, really.

    Layla by Derek and the Dominoes--long piano coda

    There are more, but that's the best I can do off the top of my head.

    Some of my favorites:

    Hallow To Our Men by The Stranglers (they do this a lot to end their records. Too Precious, Never Too Look Back, Never Say Goodbye, and La Folie also spring to mind.)
    Sir Psycho Sexy by Red Hot Chili Peppers (a rather brilliant homage to the aforementioned "I Want You/She's So Heavy")
    Love Is Blindness by U2 (specifically live versions)
    Faith Hope Love by King's X
    A Slow Song by Joe Jackson (specifically live versions)
    Tell Me Something I Don't Know by Extreme

    Ummmm...Green Carnation's Light of Day, Day of Darkness? :b

    (Song itself clocks in at an hour, for those who don't know this song).

    In the 60's and 70's it was stylish to have songs to fade out and then fade back in for an encore of sorts... One of my fav's is the blistering instrumental, MASTER HARE, by Savoy Brown. For longs songs that carry on, hmnnn, I like ANOTHER STAR by Stevie Woder, LOAN ME A DIME with Duane Allman on get-tar by Boz Scaggs, UNORTHODOX BEHAVIOR by BRAND X, WINDSWEPT by Bryan Ferry, HOUSEQUAKE by Prince, HAMBURGER HELL by Todd Rundgren, that's e-niff, eh?

    Another great Elton long fade-out tune: "Curtains", from "Captain Fantastic & The Brown Dirt Cowboy".

    Creedence Clearwater Revival's 11-minute version of "I Heard It Through The Grapevine" comes to mind.

    I really like the ending to Queensr├┐che's One and only on the Empire album. The guitars are completely repetitive but the bass and drums keeps changing, so it's building to a climax instead of being just repetitive.

    I love that version. [​IMG]

    Early King Crimson were good at this sort of thing too but a track name escapes me at the moment.

    Me too John! As far as I'm concerned, Mike Harrison and Spooky Tooth own that song.

    I'll name the King Crimson songs for ya, ...In The Court Of The Crimson King, In The Wake Of Posidon, Epitaph, and from a later version of the group with Bll Bruford on d-r-u-m-s, wow (!), fanfare, One More Red Nightmare.[​IMG]

    Surprised no one's mentioned two penned by G. Harrison:

    "Blue Jay Way"
    "Isn't It a Pity" (aka "George's Hey Jude")
