    inspired by the "longest..." thread, what's everyone's shortest song?

    Mine is Avalanche Rock by The Avalanches, in at 23 seconds.

    Come on, someone can do better than that. And it has to be a proper song, not just a clip or sound file like a new mail wav!

    damn, can't top that.

    I have special effects that are shorter... but not songs, I have a demo or a song, but still not a 'released song'

    There's a track by Lawnmower Deth that was officially the shortest recording, it consisted of a four count and a single, short power chord with a loud grunt over it.

    Been years since I heard it mind.

    Shortest thing on my ipod is a Tenacious D track at around 35 secs.

    19 seeconds - "Cruisin' in the ATL", by Outkast

    This track gets played a lot as the lab I do research in is called the ATL. Of course Outkast was referring to Atlanta, not our Advanced Technology Lab, but we can pretend. ;-)

    The Who's "Miracle Cure" from Tommy (disc 2) comes in at 12 seconds. That's the shortest honest-to-goodness song I have in iTunes.

    Next is the "Itchy and Scratchy" end credits theme at 17 seconds.:cool:

    No, it's one of the interlude bits, I think the one about the one note song with the bendy bit that Jack reckons he wrote.
