Blame The Ramones, but there have been some very short songs that have made the radio. For the purposes of this page, please
stick to songs with lyrics and also aren't interludes. Preferablly songs released as a single.
Entries Beginning with Y
This instrumental was a hit in the early 1960s.
All it is is Freddie saying 'Yeah' and then a brief sound which goes into the next track on the album (Made in Heaven). Strangely enough, that next track is 22-23 MINUTES long and STILL only contains one word (which is 'Fab')
"Yoko Ono," Die Ärzte Lenght:46 Sec
"You Don't Smell Like Flowers," Bob Rivers
Parody of "You Don't Send Me Flowers". Off of Best Of Twisted Tunes, Vol. 1.
Holds the world record for the shortest song ever recorded. It's lyrics are "You suffer, but why?"
its reeeeeally short!
In 1989 the song appeared on one side of a 7" single, the song on the other side, "Mega-Armageddon Death Part 3" by the Electro Hippies, also lasts approximately one second, making the disc the shortest single ever released. The song has earned a place in the "Guinness Book of Records" as the shortest recorded song ever.
Joop Van Mil
"You Will Always Be the Same," Ryan Adams
track 3 off their album Demolition
Closer on the "Bee Thousand" album. Actually makes a very nice closer despite its extreme brevity, although GBV had many very short songs.
This was the flip side of the 1967 45 Heroes And Villains. Its short length and the fact that it wasn't put on an LP make it one of the most obscure Beach Boys songs.
"You've got an Ugly & Stupid Butt," Strong Bad
You've got an ugly butt and your butt is stupid
