The 10 Longest Songs on my iPod

I decided to do an unusual test. I decided I would pick the 10 longest songs on my iPod and see how long they were averaged. The songs were, in order:

1. Echoes (by the Pink Floyd): 23:31
2. The Gates of Delirium (by Yes): 21:54
3. Voodoo Chile (by the Jimi Hendrix Experience): 15:00
4. Shine on You Crazy Diamond (Part 1) (by the Pink Floyd): 13:40
5. 1983...(A Merman I Should Turn to Be) (by the Jimi Hendrix Experience): 13:39
6. Down Once More (from Phantom of the Opera): 12:49
7. Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Part 2) (by the Pink Floyd): 12:31
8. A Saucerful of Secrets (by the Pink Floyd): 12:00
9. I Heard it Through the Grapevine (by Creedence Clearwater Revival): 11:07
10. Achilles Last Stand (by Led Zeppelin): 10:23

Okay, so those are my longest songs. What does this say? Well, it says that Led Zeppelin isn't nearly as long as most people think. (Only one of them got in the top 10, and even then only once.) Also, the Pink Floyd seems to dominate the list, with four songs on the list. (Not to mention the fact that one of their songs, Echoes, is indeed the longest!)

So after I figured out what my top 10 longest songs were, I had to calculate them. So I did. And I figured out that the average length of my top 10 longest songs is something like 14:47. And trust me - that's no short song.
