@stewboy, it def wasn't intended to be a rule, just added that detail for narrative purposes ;-)
It is fairly common for demo midis to be around that length, but there are plenty of longer ones. Actually, the visual reference used for the cover was the SY77 demo disk
— those tracks are mostly over 4 mins

Maybe it's an optional challenge element, since it was added as a voting category tho?

I like that it's a double-sided floppy disk and not a vulgar HD :)

Some demo-song inspiration, which is actual keyboard demo songs:
https://youtu.be/TKkmRxLHxcU?t=28 (I've had the Casio CTK-691 and 14 years ago I would just sit and listen to these when we got the keyboard. All great, but the 3rd just stood out to me as particularly funky and cool, showing off the Drawbar Organ engine... and the ending...)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GVbmnvsKRhA&list=PLzdQcm51guT--hbRYS32kq8FYtRgG3sid (SC-88 demos, really good! it was these that made me wanna get a SC-88 SOUNDCanvas)

I'm thinking maybe the '90 seconds' voting category should be used to refer to idea efficiency in general - the point of a demo song is to pack as many showoffy bits as possible into a short amount of time (who's going to sit and listen to a 5+ minute demo song?)
So a 2.5 minute track which moves from impressive idea to impressive idea might score better in that category than a 1.5 minute track which just kind of sits there.

Yeah definitely agree that it should be about impressive compression of style and progression, rather than overall song length. Since it is just binary otherwise lol. I s'pose it could be interpreted as "is the song pretty short?" too, but that seems less interesting.
