None: Ten Second Top Fifty nominations

Base: Music Discussion
Date: Fri, 13 Dec 1996 21:24:55 GMT
From: [email protected] (Steven Johnson -- FEED)
In an age of fragmentation, who bothers to listen through an entire song any more? Sure the mainstream music mags still roll out the obligatory "Album of Year" awards this month, but the real audiostream running through our days is more disjointed, musical notes scattered about like so many TCP/IP packets. Soundbites, samples, riffs, solos, refrains, intro chords � blurted out in commercials, lingering in the choppy wakes of channel surfers, all rigged together into complex musical pastiches. In the spirit of this schizophrenic soundtrack, FEED hereby presents the "Ten Second Top Fifty," in which a motley panel of critics, musicians, netheads -- and you, gentle readers -- nominate the fifty greatest pop music fragments of all time.

We'll be uploading the first nominations for our panel early next week, but for now we're opening the floor for reader suggestions. We'll pick 10 soundbites from the FEED readership and include them in the final top fifty. In compiling your lists, be sure to include the name of the artist, song title, album title -- and the begin and end times of the ten-second excerpt you've chosen. And feel free to write a few lines justifying your choices. The only caveat: limit your choices to pop and its various sub-genres (rock, indie rock, techno, rap, heavy metal, etc...). Classical and jazz will have to wait for a future Ten Second Top Fifty.
