    Many 6 min+ songs don't repeat themselves, but rather show progression. You can listen to several electronic/jazz/alternative pieces and you won't find even choruses. And they can be brilliant. Long songs don't have typical structures, usually they have a climax and the song revolves around that. So yes, a 6 min Pop song might be boring, but I can't even remember examples of such a song. I guess there are, but there are brilliant tracks which go way beyond the typical structure and are much better than a 3.15min song can ever be.

      Yes, but 5-6 minutes songs generally border on boring unless it's a progressive metal/rock or even some EDM/Garage Uk.
