Top 120 Songs Under 120 Seconds (ILM Poll #95)

65 ballots received
full list of nominations
link to spotify playlist with 1,627 of the 2,019 nominations
link to youtube playlist flopsy duck made for 389 nominated songs not on spotify

all songs up to but not including 2 minutes in length were eligible. since song lengths vary depending on the listening platform and the pollrunner was far too lazy to manually research the song lengths of over 2000 nominations, spotify was used as the judge of song lengths when eligibility came into question.

there were four ballot options, each allowing up to 50 tracks: ranked ballot, unranked ballot, mixed ballot (top 20 songs ranked, with three unranked tiers from 21-30, 31-40, and 41-50), and the Clemenza Ballot (three unranked tiers from 1-10, 11-25, and 26-50).

Rough schedule:
Today: #120-101
Monday: #100-81
Tuesday: #80-61
Wednesday: #60-41
Thursday: #40-21
Friday: #20-1

Peppered into the countdown will be the results of the three side-polls: Top 5 songs under 30 seconds, Top 5 songs not on the nominations list, and Favorite <2 Minutes Artist.

Here is a link to the Spotify playlist for the full 120 song rollout. I’ll update it as we proceed.

i'll be rolling songs out rather slowly - 20 songs today over the course of about...7 hours. of course, this will allow plenty of time for some of the greatest conversations about music of all time to take place

i want you to know that at 2:30 am last night i was up looking through images of 120 minutes and trying to figure out if i wanted to stay up another 30 minutes to make some sort of 120 seconds parody image. alas, i went to bed

Not my EC vote, but it's good enough that I had to check my ballot to make sure.

a blistering start to one of my favorite albums. i limited myself to one-song-per-artist, and it turns out there are at least 2 other EC songs on this list that are also blistering starts to one of my favorite albums. so i voted for a different one.

Wow, almost one-third of a point!

jmm, Friday, 5 April 2019 15:34 (two weeks ago) Permalink

even without the artificial points deflation, the points are prettttty tight for a lot of these results. that's why you gotta vote or die

Karl Malone, Friday, 5 April 2019 15:36 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I really meant to vote, but it was overwhelming and life got in the way.

I do agree with giving low points to short songs. Less song, less points, it's just math.

jmm, Friday, 5 April 2019 15:40 (two weeks ago) Permalink

lmao the spotify playlist picture is perfect

also the images look awesome so far too!

gonna be following on my phone today we'll see how that works lol. promise to try to yell too low if any of mine appear :)

This poll made me realise just how brilliant Elvis Costello was at starting those early albums. Love For Tender, Welcome To The Working Week and No Action all ended up on my ballot.

Little Mouth! It was in my top 10 but for some reason I didn’t think it would do particularly well. Which coming in 119h place maybe isn’t great, but 5 votes isn’t bad (and suggests that schismatic vote splitting isn’t much of an issue).

little mouth is one of my fav SK songs. i wish it were higher, but i also have no idea what to expect from the results. so instead of shouting "too low," i'll just be happy a song placed.

Agree that it's genuinely impossible to know what's going to break away from the pack at the top of the list here. I assume there'll be a lot of garage rock along the way tho.

1 and 2 were both new to me and I don’t think ill ever listen to them again. Just can’t understand how those are consensus picks. Very minor songs idk.

Great poll tho no doubt. Thanks for the hard work Karl Malone.

good job everyone who voted and a hundred thanks to km for running it.

rad to see leee voting for that lil bach tune, ppl should check it out

diamond day is a tune where the absurdly precious tone works, she sings the song like it's a bubble she has to take great care not to burst. its oversensitive to the point of being totally enchanted in a childish way that puts me in mind of things like studio ghibli animations and the combination of its fragility, its incredible lightness & its casual, domestic, comforting intimacy has grown to feel more overwhelming the more I've listened to it and the older I've got. plus it feels like she's singing to herself which is always my favourite sort of singing

"It's Time to Party" was my #1, his whole career distilled into less than 2 minutes and an incredible song. 2 #1 votes couldn't get into it into the top 120 - sad!

Vinnie, Saturday, 13 April 2019 00:21 (one week ago) Permalink

oh no...:(

there was a frogbs vote (for 425 points!) for "Andrew WK - It's Time to Party (1:30)" - no periods in the W.K., so it didn't collate properly with "Andrew W.K. - It's Time to Party (1:30)", which received 3 votes. so it should have ended up with 1287 points, which would have put it all the way up at #82!

very sorry, andrew w.k. voters. data sleuths will probably comb through the long tail of the results and find more mistakes like that on my end. i did do data cleanup and fixed many things after the ballots were received, but i'm sure i missed some stuff, beyond andrew w.k. the whole copy and paste from the list thing is crucial

Nice to know that these weren't all that far out of the 120:

128 Swell Maps - Read About Seymour (1:29) 5
133 The Raincoats - No Side to Fall In (1:50) 5
140 The Storey Sisters - Bad Motorcycle (1:56) 4

Also delighted that I wasn't completely alone with most of the tracks I nominated:

193 Johnny Hawksworth - Thames Television ident theme, c.1968-90 (0:07) 4
270 The Moodists - Where the Trees Walk Downhill (1:40) 2
278 Piero Umiliani - Mah nà mah nà (1:56) 2
359 Felt - I Will Die With My Head in Flames (1:34) 2

I should clearly have actively campaigned for this though:

Laurel Halo's "Holoday" would have been in my top 5, although even that wouldn't have placed in the top 120. glad to see its sole vote was a #1 though

If anyone didn’t find something new that could of been added to their top 50 then they might want to keep listening to the nominations. I was surprised with the amount of unique goodies in there, and I haven’t finished listening yet.

skronktopia (FlopsyDuck), Saturday, 13 April 2019 17:47 (one week ago) Permalink

Quite interesting to look at the top rankings of the shorter songs:

Top Ten up to 1 minute (dominated by hardcore)
1. Delia Derbyshire - Doctor Who Opening Theme (39 second version) (0:39)
2. Dead Kennedys - Nazi Punks Fuck Off (0:58)
3. Bikini Kill - In Accordance to Natural Law (0:28)
4. Napalm Death - You Suffer (0:02)
5. Minor Threat - Straight Edge (0:46)
6. Johnny Hawksworth - Thames Television ident theme, c.1968-90 (0:07)
7. My Bloody Valentine - Touched (0:56)
8. Boards of Canada - Kaini Industries (1:00)
9. Naked City - Demon Sanctuary (0:42)
10. ABC - The Look of Love, Part 4 (0:59)

I was very surprised that no one else voted for Sonic Youth's brilliant, speedy version of "Nic Fit". The same goes for High Llamas epic beauty "Cuckoo Casino" which is my #1in this category.

Top Ten up to 90 seconds (dominated by indie)
1. "Bad Brains - Pay to Cum (original 7"" version) (1:30)"
2. Delia Derbyshire - Doctor Who Opening Theme (39 second version) (0:39)
3. Wire - Three Girl Rhumba (1:24)
4. Pixies - Allison (1:17)
5. Primal Scream - Velocity Girl (1:22)
6. Bill Wells & Maher Shalal Baz - Duck (1:05)
7. Vince Guaraldi - Linus and Lucy (Lost Cues, Vol. 2 version) (1:20)
8. Crass - Do They Owe Us A Living? (1:24)
9. Jorge Ben - Balanca Pema (1:29)
10. De La Soul - Transmitting Live from Mars (1:12)

I had four songs from this category in my top ten (plus "Cuckoo Casino") . For three of them I was the lonely voter (Miles Davis - Mystery, Jansch/Renbourne - East Wind and Kolbe/Illenberger - Opening) and for This Mortal Coils "The Lacemaker II" someone joined me. I am baffled that my taste seems so special.

(dominated by hardcore)

this is a bit of a stretch, 2 out of 10 is hardly domination! might as well say dominated by TV themes

never really liked Sonic Youth's cover of Nic Fit, one of the weaker songs for me on Dirty. tbh don't really like the original that much either

you are right, i should have said hardcore/punk to include the dead kennedys, crass and bikini kill. my notion of hardcore is quite wide - basically fast and loud music with shouting and basic hooks - as it is not really my fave style.

Did Flopsy/whoever make that "sub-one-minute" paylist?

aw man sorry for messing up "It's Time to Party"

anyway pretty interesting that TMBG got the 10th most points but couldn't place a single song on the poll. "Nightgown of the Sullen Moon" totally should have been on there, not only a perfect 1:59 but also kind of a perfect tune as well

you should've voted for "kiss me, son of god" with me
