Yesterday, a new Taylor Swift song called "Track 3" hit the Canadian version of iTunes. Canadians, the hardcore Swifties that we are, immediately shot it to #1, just ahead of two more 1989 singles, "Welcome To New York" and "Shake It Off." The National Post was quick to write off the song, which consists of 8 seconds of static, as "a glitch." But north of the border we obviously prefer the new, avant-garde Taylor Swift.
So in honour of Taylor Swift's daring new single, here are the next 8 songs Canada should send to the top of the charts:
Tool, "Useful Idiot"
Boards Of Canada, "Magic Window"
Sigur Ros, "18 sekúndur fyrir sólarupprás"
The Bloodhound Gang, "The Ten Coolest Things About New Jersey"
John Lennon & Yoko Ono, "Two Minutes Silence"
Soundgarden, "One Minute of Silence"
The Melvins, "Pure Digital Silence"
John Cage, "4'33"
