I Like Short Songs!


This year I saw the next-to-last show on Guided By Voices‘ farewell tour (although Bob continues on).

This morning I decided to play myself a rock block of Guided by Voices. I selected all the GBV songs currently on my iPod, and iTunes replied with this statistic –

82 songs, 2.6 hours

– which breaks down to an average of 1:54 per song. (Shortest song: “Cigarette Tricks”, 0:18. Longest song: “Over the Neptune”, at a shocking 5:45)

That’s what I like about their stuff – they get in, give you the idea, and get out.
