Three minutes

Following our “3½ minutes” playlist, here are some recordings of songs/tunes that are three minutes long. We are definitely into more of a pop format now, though there are a few jazz examples— mainly vocal numbers, and mostly-melody arrangements with little improvising. A lot of old 78s are around that length. It's enough time for a pop song to feel fully-developed, though it leaves you wanting more; jazz recordings definitely feel very tight.
