7 Famous Songs Written In Less Than A Day


Mental Floss  recently put together this list of 7 Famous Songs that were, in fact, written in less than a day.   Some musicians take years to write one song, and others are able to churn out hit after hit on the fly.   Sometimes, I suppose, songs just write themselves.

So here are 7 songs that took only a day to write:

Mott The Hoople – All The Young Dudes

The Rolling Stones – Can’t Get No (Satisfaction)

Blur – Song 2

Queen & David Bowie – Under Pressure

R.E.M. – Losing My Religion

Tears for Fears – Mad World

David Bowie – Life on Mars
