Here are Allie's Top 5 Short Tunes in honor of The Winter Solstice and the shortest day of the year!

1. The Wind – Cat Stevens

This song strikes me as more of a poem than a song. It’s short and sweet, with some great imagery and metaphors. I never outgrew the obligatory Cat Stephens Phase.

 

2. She Moves in Her Own Way – The Kooks

Remember those few years in the early 00’s when brit rock was really crushing it? I sure do. Whether it’s an accident or something subconsciously deliberate, this song makes it on 80% of my playlists.

 

3. Roll to Me – Del Amitri

There is nothing not to love about this song. An up-beat sing-able melody that you can shout along to. Magic by my standards.

 

4. Buddy Holly – Weezer

I don’t care what they say about us anyway, because this song is Weezer at their Blue Album best!

 

5. I Want You Back- Jackson 5

Don't it always seem to go, that you don't know what you got 'til it's gone. What, that's a different song.
