I thought I'd always remember who wrote "Thirty-six Second Song" (NOT the one you find in the Google search), only I don't. I do remember the complete lyrics and melody, complete with steel guitar outro:

All the DJs say
That songs today run much too long
And so that's why I went and wrote
This thirty-six second song

I'm pretty sure it didn't make the us or uk top 100 chart, this one gets us off the stage quickly when nature calls.

Ok, so I misread the topic and thought you meant what was the shortest song title and my guess for that would be S.O.S. by Abba.

As for shortest song to get on the charts - I'll admit I was too clueless to guess.
