So if you can...post it! Songs only! Intros and outros (or whatever they are called) to albums and others songs don't count! Soundtracks by composers such as Danny Elfman and Clint Mansell don't count! (my topic my rules haha)
Mine is bunch of stuff by Clint Mansell actually, shortest is 11 seconds but since I can't count that my REAL shortest song is 31 seconds called "Other Father Song" by They Might Be Giants.
My LOOOOOOOONGEST song is...well actually my three longest are by Clint Mansell AGAIN! The longest being off the Sherlock Holmes sound track called "Psychological Recovery...6 months" at 18 minutes and 19 seconds
But I can't count that either, so "Merciful Fate" by Metallica is technically my 4th longest song at 11 minutes and 12 seconds so I will count that as the "longest".
So once again-
Shortest: 0:31, Other Father Song, They Might Be Giants
Longest: 11:21, Merciful Fate, Metallica
Longest: slipknot - iowa 18 minutes

Longest: Currently "Led Zeppelin - Achilles Last Stand(10:23)" although I'm tempted to add "Iron Butterfly - In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" which goes for like 17 minutes, so that could be taking over soon.
Shortest song is at 4 seconds. "Overheard in a Wawa Parking Lot" by Bloodhound Gang. Although there aren't really any instruments in that one.

And there are many intros by artists like Limp Bizkit, Slipknot etc that fall in the same range...In about 30 seconds.
Longest is Beethoven's Piano Sonata #21 In C, Op. 53, "Waldstein" - 1. Allegro Con Brio coming at at 11:31
Shortest: "Asgard" by Bump of Chicken, at 39 seconds long.
