A confluence of events allowed me to listen to long pop songs today.
I had few meetings scheduled. I had a lot of work that required focus. Everybody else in the office was in a chatty mood.
I put on the headphones, cranked up iTunes, set up a smart list that included only songs longer than 10 minutes.
Sister Ray — Velvet Underground
Pass the Hatchet, I’m Goodkind — Yo La Tengo
Stone Free (Live, Albert Hall) — Jimi Hendrix
Jenny Ondioline — Stereolab
A Very Cellular Song — The Incredible String Band
Cosmia — Joanna Newsom and the Ys Street Band
Let Us Go Into the House of the Lord — Pharoah Sanders
I Dream A Highway — Gillian Welch
Desolation Row — Bob Dylan
… and many others showed up that I didn’t actualy listen to.
