Short song from 'Let It Be'
"Magick," Ryan Adams Lenght:2:17
track 4 off their album Cardinology
"Majestic," Journey Lenght::41 (Live); 1:16 (Studio)
"Majestic" is the very first song that appears on "Captured" before it segues into "Where Were You." The studio version of "Majestic" which appears on "Evolution" is slightly longer than the live version which appears on "Captured." The only "lyrics" that are heard in this song are "Ahh, ahh," which is sung three times. Unlike the live version, the studio version opens with a few guitar notes, which is why the live version is shorter.
"Making Mirrors," Gotye Lenght:1:01
The lead and title track of his third album.
Brian Kelly
"Mantra," Tool Lenght:1:12
Really short, really weird, but actually not the shortest song on the Lateralus album.

From the Something New LP, this was also the flip side of Slow Down, the least successful of the Beatles' many singles from 1964.
