Default How to make my songs longer

They're really short. I can't put the chorus in too many times, cause that'd get boring, y'know? I hate sitting through a song where the chorus is repeated twenty times. Any way I can make them longer?

Just do a Sonic Youth & stick 3 minutes of guitar feedback in the middle of them.

Fruity loops drum solo, works like a charm! And when that gets boring just wail over guitar noise until the end.
I think I just heard a cash register?
