The reason why it's short is because it was edited down from 3:47. You're not missing a whole lot by the edit unless you want to hear why! Nevertheless its a great little song.

I'm like Necko only I'm a bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin and also everyone. Or is everyone me? Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.  This has been true for 2016 & 2017 Sig-Badge.png but I may have to get more specific in the future.

I remember when I was young reading a review of 'McCartney II ' which slated 'Darkroom'; I always loved it for its weird creepy vibe and just how odd it is (which is why I love the whole album). Why is this guy wanting the girl to go to his darkroom?

As as with all the other songs that were trimmed before getting officially released Paul was definitely correct in editing out the excess, turned it into a much better tighter track. The 'Twin Freaks ' remix is pretty cool as well, tho not as good as the original.
