The Flaming Lips have a six hour song?!? Uh, okay...

I don't even have the attention span to watch this for any longer than about eight minutes.  But if you want to watch a 23 minute breakdown of a six hour song, be my guest.

Video: Guided tour of their six-hour song | Rolling Stone: ""Part of the concept of the strobo-trip is that we kinda suggest, playfully, that you take some kind of drug experience with this," Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne says of his band's six-hour epic, "I Found a Star on the Ground." "We thought we would make this a song that you could play for the entirety for one of these drug experiences."

In this video, Coyne takes Rolling Stone on a guided tour of their epic composition, explaining the band's process and ideas at different points in the piece. Don't worry – we've edited it down to a manageable 23 minutes!"
