This part of a series of shorter posts, because I’ve left the longer lists hanging. Sorry about that. This way, I can post more often, and specific recommendations. Hopefully that’s more valuable to you.
Today, a couple of long songs.
These are two of my favorite songs that are over 5 minutes long…
My understanding is this is a song of disconnected verses. Regardless, I always let this whole song play out. It’s emotional, it changes, and has a very “epic” feel.
We’re not questioning God / Just those he chose to carry on His cross
An 11 minute long “story song”. It begins with the end, then goes back to start the story from 1941.
The mood changes depending on the verse, and I think it all just fits together so well. The writing is filled with hooks and almost perfect wordplay, and it never gets boring.
