2. Pink Floyd “Stop” (:30)


The song, off of the 1979 double album The Wall, was written by Roger Waters and is the shortest song in the band’s catalogue. It describes the main character Pink calling for a stop to his life as a fascist dictator and to “The Wall” in general. The song is followed by “The Trial” in which Pink puts himself on trial.

 

1. The Beatles “Her Majesty” (:27)


Written by Paul McCartney, this song is the final track on 1969’s legendary Abbey Road and is considered one of the first “hidden tracks” in pop-rock history. Appearing 14 seconds after “The End,” the song was not listed on the original album sleeve but has since been included and is the shortest song in the band’s catalogue.
