With Just A Hint Of Mayhem

Music trivia, useless info, extra added random stuff and the odd rant from me

“But I gotta get a bellyful of wine” March 2, 2014


14MAGICAL_SPAN-articleLargeHave you ever wondered what the shortest song recorded and released by the Beatles was? Well wonder no more while I bring you the top five shortest Beatles songs; As is customary they are in reverse order and you should imagine a Ringo drum roll while you are reading the list.

5 “Mean Mr Mustard” from ‘Abbey Road‘ (1:06)

4 “Wild Honey Pie” from ‘The Beatles’ a.k.a ‘The White Album‘ (0:52)

3 “Dig It” from ‘Let It Be‘ (0:49)

2 “Maggie Mae” from ‘Let It Be’ (0:40)

1 “Her Majesty”  from ‘Abbey Road’ (0:23)

While we’re at it do you know what the longest Beatles song to be released was? I bet you’re all thinking “Hey Jude” aren’t you? Well you’re wrong. The longest song the band ever released was “I Want You (She’s So Heavy)” which takes up seven minutes and 47 seconds of ‘Abbey Road’. “Hey Jude” sits just behind at 7:11. However the longest track the group ever released was the rather weird and sometimes scary sound scape “Revolution No. 9” from ‘The White Album’. It lasts a whopping 8 minutes and 22 seconds. For me that track is best listened too at high volume with headphones in a dark room late at night. What do you think?
