Coffin Nails by MF Doom

Coffin Nails is a short track made in the early 2000’s by MF Doom, a British hip hop artist, it clocks in between 2:50 and 3 minutes depending on your source, and it’s an instrumental.

I’ll get right to the punchline of why I’m doing this,………..SPOILER ALERT……  The actual song is ten seconds long played seventeen times.  The seventeen times are very consistent, with a random one second beat or pluck of the bass thrown in.

When I first heard this song, it was maddening.  I was waiting for a verse or something to  change.

But I did like the ten seconds——a lot.

So basically, I’m hearing a song that I like—17 times in a row.

That is soothing to know and it’s maybe why I find it refreshing .I know exactly what I’m gonna get for that 3 minutes divided by 10 point something seconds.    Sometimes it doesn’t have to be unpredictable.

Don’t be afraid…..go do it.
