So I ran some numbers and was amazed at home many good short songs there are on my iTunes library.
- 3 stars or better under 3:00 - 334 songs
- 3 stars or better under 2:45 - 208 songs
- 3 stars or better under 2:30 - 131 songs
- 4 stars or better under 2:30 - 32 songs
Wow. Apparently KoL isn't the only band tuned into the short song theory (although they represent a pretty hefty portion of the list).
So let's hand pick the 10 best (limiting the choices to songs on my library and limiting selections to one song per artist).
