Kick it up a notch
« on: August 24, 2007, 07:07:20 PM »

Alright, wife and kids are at a football game.  I'm monitoring servers for God knows what but I feel compelled.  In between, I'm GolfHo'ing.  I'm stuck right here for a while so let's try to get something going.

Best song under three minutes in length.

Predictably, two of my front runners are from Floyd - Southampton Dock and Pigs on the Wing.  Roger performing his magic.   Bow

By the way, I really thought When the Tigers Broke Free would qualify but it's 3:42.   Cry

I have such narrow horizons.   Sad

Just about anything from the first 3 Ramones albums is on the list.

But even they can't top this:

Led Zeppelin - Tangerine

It's 3:10, but only if you include the 14 second false start.

Of course, there's also this song from the same album.

Minor threadjack...

After seeing MFAWG's post, I had to search for the Do You Remember Rock and Roll Radio? music video from MTV back when they actually used to play music. It turns out to be 3:45 long, but it kicks too much ass to not link it here. BTW, I also found a cover version that spacey will surely enjoy.

You're right, of course, but I can't help but think of...

"And five, now this is the most important, Rat. When it comes down to making out, whenever possible, put on side one of Led Zeppelin IV."

Cue Kashmir.   Bangs Head Angry Cussing Pain Bangs Head
