I thought, what about a mix of all the best songs that are under one minute in length? With a little sequencing, this could make a very interesting 80+ song mix album...
I know of several right off the top...
Back And Forth
Women Tied up in Knots
I'd appreciate your input. All contributions welcome, as long as the song is 59 seconds long or less! I'll post updates to the mix periodically...
I like the following that clock in 1 minute and under: D.R.I.-Capitalists Suck Primus-Granddad's Little Ditty Everlast-the white boy is back Trent Reznor-Videodrones; Questions Cypress HIll-Ultraviolet Dreams Bush- X-girlfriend M.I.A.-Dash the Curry Skit Van Halen-Little Guitars Benoit Pioulard-R Coloring Paul McCartney-Ram On I should stop there and add The Offspring's Time to Relax. One of my favorite intros!Out 22 2006, 0h56
Oh yeah, the Beastie Boys have some great ones pattismithowns! The biz vs the nuge ...and, from Paul's Boutique: Ask For Janice 5 Piece Chicken Dinner I'll have to check out the OTC one, I don't know it. Thanks for these, keep 'em coming!Out 22 2006, 12h33
megatoad, thanks! I'll add the following, continuing with the Primus theme... Seas Of Cheese [track artist=Wyclef Jean]Prelude To All The Girls (Interlude][/track] [track artist=Elvis Costello]Deliver Us[/track] [track artist=Pop Will Eat Itself]City Zen Radio 1990/2000 FM[/track] [track artist=Yo La Tengo]False Ending[/track] [track artist=Sharpshooters]Crooked[/track] [track artist=Professor Murder]Pedigree[/track] [track artist=Everclear]Ataraxia (Media Intro)[/track] [track artist=The Breeders]Le Roi (Reprise)[/track] [track artist=Pop Will Eat Itself]Medicine Man Speak With Forked Tongue[/track] [track artist=Elvis Costello]Interlude: Couldn't Call It Unexpected 2[/track]Out 22 2006, 12h57
How about more Beasties? The Blue Nun Tough Guy off the top of my head... Three Car Jam Ack Ack Ack Her Majesty Box of Stars, Part One O I Sleep Lukin Nic Fit Let's Get Sandy (Big Problem) and the greatest shortest song: WeinerschnitzelOut 22 2006, 22h21
This is tricky. So many short songs are just shards, scraps or intros. These are at least shaped like songs: Sebadoh: Love to Fight The Who: Medac Joseph Arthur: In Ohio I'd sprinkle in some of the 18 songlets in They Might Be Giants' Fingertips suite. (The Minutemen almost deserve their own category. They wrote great two-minute songs, then played them at double speed.)Out 23 2006, 15h34
Awesome! I'm going to try to assemble the starting lineup tonight... think we still need about 30 - 40 more, which shouldn't be hard... just browsing through some of my artists, these little babies are everywhere!Out 23 2006, 22h24

Didn't have time to review all the above track. But if you want some west side flava... Drugs Salud (this should be your 1st track!) B ody Rap The New (Some more B-boy flavor) And coming in at a cool 60 seconds...Simple LifeOut 31 2006, 2h10
There's also this one: One More Question Although, I'm never sure if I really like them, so its hardly a recommendation. Still a cute song though. ... oh, and have you had JMC Retro? I love that song! and another Boards of Canada song (I thought moment of clarity was silent?): Beware the Friendly StrangerAbr 26 2008, 14h35
