This was quite entertaining. It's mostly because of how soft it is. I don't really see how this was supposed to be soul crushing. I mean, it's pretty sad, but not THAT sad. I guess you needed something longer to make you feel that bad. This is still a wonderfully strong song.
This is a really soft beat. It still affects you strongly. It doesn't need to be long. In fact, it works quite well as a loop. There's not much variance in its short time. Again, it doesn't need it.
