The 60 minutes of music that rocks my world

Inspired by the Guitar World article, here is the list of songs I would pick with a time limit of 60 minutes. What would you choose?
1Johnny Cash
Cocaine Blues

3:01 This song simply oozes attitude. Johnny Cash sings this song to prisoners in Folsom Prison and the response they give to lines like "Early one morning I was making the rounds/Took a shot of cocaine and I shot my woman down" is awesome.
2The Beatles
All Too Much

6:25 This song is a great example of The Beatles proficiency at writing songs. Most people think the new tracks on Yellow Submarine are throw aways, but I love them.
3King Crimson
21st Century Schizoid Man

7:21 I love the balance of the screaming guitar and the roaring orchestration in this song. The frantic pace will make you think to yourself that this must be what schizophrenia is like.

2:47 This is the shortest song on my list, but perhaps packs the most punch. From the mind blowing bass riff at the beginning to the abrupt end you'll be enjoying one of the most finely crafted songs ever written

5:19 Cake is most well known for their quirky alt-funk, but they weren't too shabby at writing love songs. The lyrics "I want to pull you down into bed/I want to cast your face in lead" are what I believe to be the most romantic lyrics of all time. Cake does still, however, devolve into a loose funk jam at the end which is fantastic.
6John Lee Hooker
I got the key to the highway

3:48 John Lee Hooker is a brilliant story teller, but I'm always sucked in by his guitar lines. I love the way he plays rhythm and lead at the same time on this song.
7Alice in Chains
Over Now

7:03 Soundgarden is my favorite grunge group because of their consistent albums, but Alice in Chains has better individual songs. This song has a great mix between acoustic and electric. It has some of killer riffs. What sells the cake for me though is the vocal interplay between Jerry Cantrell and Layne Staley.
8Pink Floyd

23:27 Echoes isn't so much a song as it is a journey. After you put it on, all you can do is lie down, close your eyes and let the 24 minute epic take you where it will. Pure brilliance.
