It's been a hectic week so I've tried to capture that by playing songs with an average length of 2 minutes (and no songs longer than 2:15). Sure, in iTunes, it's easy to find songs of a given length, but finding your favorites and putting them together's not quite as easy.

While I was going for a specfic song length - everything had to be a song in the verse/chorus/verse sense. I had one instrumental and it still had a song strucutre.

What ended up interesting about the whole experiment was the pace of the show. Even when the music wasn't especially high tempo, the show seemed zippy.

So, do you have any favorite short songs?
