Actually, just most of Deep Cuts.
clocks in at 2:56, close enough right
Franz Ferdinand - Darts of Pleasure
Magnetic Fields - Too Drunk To Dream
Fanfarlo - Fire Escape
J&MC - Never Understand
Bang on 3 minutes, one of my favourite Beach Boys songs by far.
Others bang on 3 minutes:
Weezer - Don't Let Go
Beastie Boys - Sabotage
The Movielife - Jamestown
All absolute classics.
always feels like 6 minutes so much pleasure in one song
undoubtably the best pop song ever
I went to see them recently. They were pretty good.
The first band I went to see, supporting Echo & the Bunnymen - Free Trade Hall '87.
Note video length.
Lemonheads: Great Big No
Beach Boys: Good Vibrations
Undertones: Here Comes The Summer (bit less than 3)
Fall Out Boy: The Take Over, The Breaks Over
Frankie Lymon & The Teenagers: Why Do Fools Fall In Love.

Big Star - Thank you friends
Herman Düne - Seven Cities
Camera Obscura - French Navy
Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin - Glue Girls
The Ruby Suns - Look Out SOS!
I've put all of your songs in a playlist and added some more.. and I got a little carried away.
Feel free to add more things.
With 3 songs 5mins+, you are indeed getting carried away! Pop's pop tho. I'm listening starting with the shortest first, good start...
by Frankie Valli
The Cardigans - Love Fool
Just scanning through some of their stuff, and despite the sprawling (but not /that/ lengthy) bohemian rhapsody, and maybe having a slighty proggy rep, few of their songs get far past 4 mins. We Will Rock You (not their finest moment) is only 2'02". Anyway...
by Carole King
by Gnarls Barkley
is a great shout, shimmetry.
Coolin' By Sound by Pavement
(Speak See Remember was too long :( )
(I'm not classing my Paramore/Fall Out Boy love as pop music, because then we enter sticky territory.)
Screw it, I'm going for 'Dance, Dance' by Fall Out Boy then.
Bang on 3 minutes. Perfect.
