Pretty much every great single in the 60s

(OK yeah Pixies are a great shout too)

The Magnetic Fields - The Book of Love

A lean 10 seconds.

I don’t think under 3 minutes is really that short.

Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy - Raining in Darling

A slow building torch song squeezed perfectly into 1.53:


The Dead Kennedys - I like Short Songs
Primal Scream - Velocity Girl
Super Furry Animals - Chupacabras
Herman Düne - You Stepped on Sticky Fingers
The Olivia Tremor Control - Jumping Fences

did a playlist of sub-2 minute songs a while back JAG

Going to come back adding loads here tbh

Bruce Springsteen - Candy’s Room
Ours - In a Minute

Karen O Rapt


Every Joyce Manor song

really fond of this from last year - do wish it was longer though, so swings and roundabouts.

Humans - All My
