Short Free Songs at the iTunes Music Store
by Erica Sadun
In an attempt to cross promote my latest MacDevCenter article, I offer you a bunch of short iTMS songs. Because each song is under 30 seconds in length, you can download them in their entirety to your Mac or iPod. The article provides you the how-to, this post lists some of my favorite tracks.
- Let Me Be Your Hog and Harvey the Wonder Hamster
"Weird Al" Yankovic classics.
- Wheels, Pt 2
"The Wino on the Bus goes glug, glug, glug...all through the town".
- Spam Song, Intro to the Album of the Soundtrack of the Trailer of the Movie of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, The Comfy Chair, Do Wot John, Folksongs of the Spanish Inquisition, A Scottish Farewell, and The Last Word
Monty Python at its finest...and shortest.
- Baby Doll
I have no idea what language this woman is singing in, but it's a pretty amusing track.
- Nap Dance Bedroom
From the Napoleon Dynamite Soundtrack. Trés Disco.
- Sound of Music, The Day the Earth Stood Still, Journey to the Center of the Earth, and The Producers
A collection of quick conclusions. (The Producers is a standout.)
- Several short tunes from Marnie, the Motion Picture
Apparently Joel McNeely likes to write 'em short.
- The Bread Rhyme
Strangely fascinating, "The Clancy Children".
From the much-missed Phil Hartman.
- 5-Piece Chicken Dinner
The Beastie Boys, if you'd believe it.
- Moonlight on Mt Hood
Remember the theme song from "Friends"? This isn't it. But it's by the same guys.
- Intro to Necessity
From the Finian's Rainbow soundtrack. Who doesn't love songs about tobacco production?
- Mr B.
By Billy. It's about a cat, apparently.
- It's Today
"There's a Thank You can give Life if you live Life all the way...Hallelujah, it's Today!!!"
|He doesn't fight, and he doesn't squeal, he just runs around on his hamster wheel!|
|You list a lot of Python, but you overlook this gem -- all the more desirable as it is missing from many pressing of COA (John Denver sued, but I guess since the plane crash he's a lot less litigious these days).|
Mel: Great song, ain't it?
|What a cheapskate... You can't find anything better to do with your time than find ways to rip off music?|
|It's the problem solving/cool factor, not the cheap factor.|
