Greatest 'Two-Minute Single' Ever?

Yes, ithuis would be my pick, especially since "Like A Rolling Stone" is six minutes long.  I'm posting this now as the Beehtoven opus 131 plays the actual starring role in the fine new film "A Late Quartet" (as I have posted previously), also featuring Christopher Walken.  And WQXR, the prime classical music station in NYC is in the midst of its annual ObeyThoven month, and its string quartet marathon is coming up this Sunday.  Its piano sonata marathon last year at this time was great.  But now:  movement no. 6 from opus 131.  My Beethoven book (with Kerry Candaele)  here.
