Songs don't need to be long.

Around the 4 minute mark for both of them, combined, and both are almost perfection.

Indeed they don't, both of these are about 2:30 and are perfection imo.

Can't beat a bit of CCR.  So glad to have seen John Fogerty on Bruce Springsteen's bill at Hyde Park.

 

I saw Pixies the other month at the Usher Hall.  37 songs in two hours!

 

Here is one of their longer songs:

 

 

Ramones are probably the best short song band:

They don't need to be long but I think most of the best songs ever written have a bit of length to them and take you on a bit of a journey. 

 

Iron Maiden are my absolute stand alone favourite band and they do some amazing songs under the 4 minute mark and loads between 4 and 5 which fly by as if they are much shorter.

 

 

 

But give me their 8 minute plus epics all day long. Masterpieces.

Picked that up for a couple of quid on cd in a sale.  Some decent names including The ?Damned.
