Top 5 - Quick Three Minute Ditty
Let's try a Top 5 a little more academic, because you gotta be able to mix opinion with fact if you're gonna get any where in this blog. But, don't worry, it's not too tricky. Everybody's got their favorite little ditty they can hum along with. Sometimes if a song gets too long and too complicated, it loses all its meaning. Plenty of artists out there can say all they need to in an easy melody and a few short minutes. I figure most songs are between 3 and 5 minutes long. So, what about those quick three minute ditties? Let me have em - what are your Top 5 Song Under 3:00? I'm sure there are plenty of them.
Here's a great example, just to get you started. Blues songs can be really simple and get their point across pretty quickly. I particularly like this Spencer Davis Group song (Steve Winwood singing). Hopefully, it'll get you started.
