I was bored the other day, so I worked out what the average song length was in my iTunes library (other media players are available).

Here's how you can work it out:

Take the amount of days of music you have, in my case, 3. Times that by 24 to get how many hours that is (72).

Add the remaining hours. (18.56 for me)

This equals 90.56 hours of music.

Times that by 60 to get how many mintues of music you have (5433.6 minutes of music).

Diveide that by how many songs you have (5433.6 / 1424)

My result was 3.8, meaning my average song length is 3.8 minutes, which is about 3 minutes and 48 seconds

I my AxCx tracks probably didn't help in making it so low xD Post what songs/artists had a big impact on your average song length

What about you guys? I predict you Dream Theater fans will have much higher averages than me

That bit made no sense. 3.8=3.8 minutes=3.48 minutes? What?
No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable

Somewhere around 5 minutes. I rounded 28.8 days up to 30 to make it simpler, and it ended up at 5.3.

i don't think some of these people realize that the decimal is not the same as seconds.
a decimal is a fraction of a minute, which CAN be ".78"
3.93 minutes=3:55 minutes average song length..

that just killed 5 minutes.. wooot: I love maths.

There's nothing wrong with what he said.
48.4 days / 16263 songs = 4 minutes 20 seconds.
36330 minutes / 8837songs = 4.11112368 avg time.

here's what you do
1. Take a fork, preferably metal.
2. Put some tomato sauce on it.
3. Let tomato sauce on fork dry.
4. Turn it in and call it: "The Spaghetti Massacre."

Hmmm, it looks like someone found an application for sixth grade math.
also even if you get an answer like "3.28 minutes" you still need to multiply 60 by "0.28" to give the amount of seconds. because the first answer is the fraction of a minute, the second answer gives minutes to seconds.

Notice how as music progresses, song times get shorter. Soon songs will only be 2 or 3 words long.

There is no reason to do this. You fail at efficiency.

are you serious?

a whole bunch of popular 50's or 60's songs were under 3 minutes if not at or around 2.

now most songs are like 4 to 5.
