Staxipedia Express : Why the singles got to be less than three and half minutes long?

“The three-minute rule comes from the States, from the ’50s. The people who owned  restaurants where all the kids were hanging out drinking Coca-Cola, wanted them to feed the jukeboxes more regularly, so they pressured for shorter singles. Can you believe that? Some geezer and his hamburger-flipping mates (fifty years ago) are the reason why musicians still have to write three-minute pop songs!”
