    Question Longest/shortest song in your collection

    I just want to see these results out of interest.

    My longest is Flood by Boris, which clocks in at 70:32.
    My shortest is Hammerhead by Naked City, which clocks in at 0:12.

    I don't have the exact file names handy but I know I have a 6+ hour DJ mix from a liveset in an Israel club on my other computer, and numerous sound effects that are 1 second or less. I've got probably 20 DJ sets that are 2+ hours long.

    Excluding secret tracks where there's like 10 minutes ofsilence, my longest song is It's Natural To Be Afraid by Explosions In The Sky.

    Shortest is Intro by Offspring (conspiracy of one album).

    Dialogues and most intros really don't count as songs. If they were counted, my shortest track would be "Yeah" by Kyuss (the vocalist just says "yeah") at 0:05 and my longest would be the first half of Henry Rollins "Get in the Van" (spoken word album) at 77:43.

    I have a cover of 'Hallelujah' which, according to Rhythm Box is 870 hours, 34 minutes, 6 seconds. I'm going to go ahead and write that one off as corrupt file info so the next longest is Cassandra Gemini by Mars Volta which is 31:42.

    Shortest actual song (sort of) is 'Farewell to John Denver' at 15 seconds from a Monty Python album.

    Longest in my current collection is Calgone by Incubus from the album S.C.I.E.N.C.E. at 34:12. Unless you count Mitch Hedberg's Performance at the Capitol City Comedy Club in Austin, Texas, which clocks in at 1:05:20. I could mention some other songs that are about 2 hours or longer, but they are not quite songs and a little weird...

    Shortest is Bloodhound Gang's We Like Meat from their Use Your Fingers album at 4 seconds.
    Raidmax Smilodon - ASUS M2N-E - AMD Athlon X2 5200+ @2.6Ghz - EVGA GTX260 896MB - Corsair 450VX
    Audigy2 ZS - Medusa 5.1 Headphones - Logitech x530 - Logitech G5 - Logitech Classic Keyboard
    320GB Seagate SATA (Primary) - 640GB WD Black (Storage) - Lite-On LH-20AIL

    I don't know. Did you download the song or rip it from a cd? Because I downloaded it.

    I think it's interesting that I share two of my shortest songs with other members.

    I'm guessing all of the songs on the album you downloaded were an extra 2 seconds longer than the copy I downloaded

    A lot of cd writers have an insert pause function that adds 2 seconds between tracks. It's probably that.
