Can any record beat Mike Berry & The Outlaws' 'Don't You Think It's Time' - a No.6 hit running at 99 seconds?

Elvis Presley's "Party" is a mere 87 seconds.

Was that when he was in his punk phase?

Liam Lynch's "United States of Whatever" just snuck into the top ten at Number 10 and runs at 87 seconds.

This one went on for ages, took as much as 95 seconds, but it did get to No. 1:

Adam Faith - What Do You Want?

But apparently this one that also got to No. 1 is even shorter:

Adam Faith - Poor Me
Anyone know how many seconds?

"Stay" actually times out at 1:38, not 1:50 as stated on the label.

"Some Kinda Earthquake" only reached #12 in the UK charts, so as far as the top ten goes, looks like Presley and Lynch are still tied at 1.27.

I believe the shortest U.S. Top 10 single was "Let's Get Together" by Hayley Mills at 1:28. It reached #10 on the Billboard charts. I'll investigate further when I get a chance.

The Duane Eddy version which charted in the UK ran to 1 minute and 56 seconds.
