2 minutes of magic

    The Ramones - California Sun
    The Smiths - Panic
    The Housemartins - Happy Hour
    Guided by Voices - Game of Pricks

    Short songs of pure indie/power pop magic that last two minutes or thereabouts.
    I'm sure there are plenty more out there I don't know of if anyone wants to add to the list.

    Teenage Kicks is a very obvious one

    Many of Mike Krols songs are about 2 minutes long

    Was only listening to it the other day and forgot to put it in.

    The Lemonheads have a few short ones - Rockin' Stroll/Being around/It's all true

    Sebadoh - Rebound
    Foo Fighters - Up in arms

    Subbacultcha (2.09) => Distance Equals Rate Times Time (1.24)

    What a combo. It's like two songs for the price of one.
