The Doors - The End

Almost 12 minutes long, The Doors' "The End" off their self-titled 1967 debut album is a monster of a song. A psychedelic epic that among other things have been used to magical effect in Francis Ford Coppola's mighty Apocalypse Now, where it is used both in the opening sequence featuring fighter helicopters in front of an orange sunrise and in the end sequence where Kurtz is killed. It shows the true genius of Jim Morrison and The Doors, and even though they continued to make some amazing music, I really don't think they ever got better than they were on this track. It's true perfection, their crowning achievement!
