Rules: nothing featuring vocal samples otherwise everything on this list would just be Daft Punk.
Head with Wings
This is how I got started on this. “I got a head with wings,” some airplane noises, and a short verse in the middle that masquerades as a chorus. All you need on a Monday morning.
Ack Ack Ack
This song is like a Cathy comic strip come to life.
I Like Short Songs
Truth in advertising right here.
85 times. According to a VH1 article I stumbled across, this is how many times you hear the word “bird” here. I’m not about to double check.
The One I Love
1. This song is gorgeous.
2. It’s probably the least repetitive song here
3. At this point in time Michael Stipe could have gotten away with anything.
I Want You (She’s So Heavy)
12 words. 12 vaguely dirty words. That’s all John and Paul needed here to make you feel slightly awkward, mostly for them as it’s a little dirtier and a little sexier than they can reasonably pull off.
