Ten second songs - short but so satisfying

SOME of the best things in life only take 10 seconds - including hilarious, one-thought songs by an American musician.

Under the banner of Ten Second Songs, New York City-based comedian Don Fanelli is posting tunes on Tumblr and SoundCloud that take, well, 10 seconds.

Without missing a beat Fanelli goes straight to the core of the big issues of life, such as not caring too much for people posting pictures of  their kids online, to regrets over toys and fire and even a piece called Hot Diarreah, which is about ... you know.

"I was tired and messing around on my guitar late one night and one of the songs just kind of popped out," Fanelli told Mashable.

"I honestly have no idea what inspires the songs; it's whatever is in my head at the moment or maybe something that's going on around me. I write the riff first and just improvise something over it."

So, got a spare 30 seconds? Here are three of his finest.
