Nice try, but no. Radio used to like shorter songs so they could fit more crap (and DJ patter) in between.
Keeping it short: The 3-minute-rule began to end when "Hey Jude" became a (7'11") hit. A shortened version was made for radio, but the die was cast. By 1978 Kasem's Top-40 show was forced to grow from 3 to 4 hours. By 1993, even with DJ's mostly gone, Meat Loaf's 12+ minute album single could only be whittled down to 5:43.
