Their 6 minute song . . .
"The March of the Black Queen"share
The issue wasn't that Bohemian Rhapsody was 6 minutes long, it was that it was 6 minutes long and the band wanted it to be the single. Radio stations wouldn't play anything over 3 minutes back then.share
That’s not completely true. The full version of The Doors’ Light My Fire got airplay on some stations; but it’s true that songs over 3 minutes did not get as much radio exposure as short songs.share
Some songs had radio edits. In-a-gadda-da-vita was edited down to just under 3 minutes. So was Thick as a Brick.share
Yessss, did not like them either, it just made me want to go home and listen to the true song! lol
Cutting In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida down to 3 minutes is like trying to cram an African elephant into a steamer trunk.share
True that, love Santana!share
