The 1971 tune beat the Who's equally unwieldy 'Won't Get Fooled Again' into second place, while Queen's relatively slimline 'Bohemian Rhapsody' (at just six minutes long) ranked third.

The Beatles and the Rolling Stones only managed to snag ninth and 10th places on the rundown, with the tunes 'Revolution' and 'Gimme Shelter,' respectively. Clearly both bands should have thought about adding a few extra minutes to their compositions.
Although we're not sure what the listenership's preferences for long, uninterrupted stretches of music says about the quality of Absolute Classic Rock's DJs.
