Long for radio airplay, sure, but closer to "American Pie" than "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" or "Alice's Restaurant".

Using the Rankin-Bass melody for the same song, it would last roughly 5 minutes 20 seconds, again not counting any interludes.

I'd say that is about as likely as getting the rest of the riddles in the extended edition. Which is to say, not very likely at all.Doug
