The 10 Best Short Songs Ever

We've compiled a short but sweet list of the best shortest songs out in music. Have a listen.

In this ADD generation, forget about reading novels, hell even novellas are too long. Everything has to be quick, short and preferably 140 characters or less. Let's put aside our favourite epic songs for a second and focus on short songs that are actually awesome. To make things easy, we've also reduced our song choice descriptions to 140 characters or less.


Cat Stevens - The Wind

A classic and beautiful track by the cat man.


The Beatles - Her Majesty

The Beatles have a ton of short songs, we went Her Majesty which doesn't even hit the 30 second mark.


Foo Fighters - Doll

The intro to arguably the best Foo Fighters album is a soft slow intro that is followed up by the fast paced Monkey Wrench.


Pink Floyd - Eclipse

It's actually not the shortest track off Dark Side Of The Moon, but it is the best of the short ones.


The Smiths - Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want

Long name, short song, great track.


The Pixies - Tame

Kurt Cobain's inspiration for Smells Like Teen Spirit. Bonus The Pixies Song: Here Comes My Gun.


The Ramones - Blitzkrieg Bop

Most of The Ramones songs are on the short side, this one is our fave of the bunch.


Creedence Clearwater Revival - Fortunate Son

You'd think this song is much longer but it's actually only two minutes and change. Great tune.


Blur - Song 2

While many believe that this song is named the way it is because of it's 2 minute length, officially it actually runs two seconds longer.


The White Stripes - Fell In Love with a Girl

This short and sweet love song by The White Stripes is really fast paced and sports an awesome music video.
