seeing as we've had the EP style thread - I thought why not some love for the 3 minute heroes? With this in mind what are the best songs UNDER 3 minutes?

There will be lots. Definition will be personal taste I guess.

First one which the title brought to mind was Ever fallen in love with someone/Buzzcocks.

Another good (rare) one is Where's Captain Kirk/SpizzEnergi

Seeds of doubt by the Inspiral carpets. I'm sure that's less than 3 minutes and an absolute riot of energy and fun.
