Dear lazyweb, I tell you what I want, an easy way of clipping, posting and annotating tiny clips of sound. Because I spend my life thinking that little moment there, that's the best thing in all recorded music ever, and then, when I try and list those moments I discover I've forgotten them.
So here's one I actually remember. From The Whole Of The Moon by The Waterboys. It's about 6 seconds into the fragment below; two little muted splashy, crashy cymbal hits. It sounds half-way between a cymbal and a paper bag with a big spoon in it. It only happens in that bit of the chorus, just in a little gap that opens up, on the left of the stereo, and it sounds slightly off-centre from the rest of the sound world of the song. And there are moments when I can be persuaded that it's the best thing in all recorded music ever.
