Still in the '70s--

If you're gonna have a hit
You gotta make it fit

The artist you would know immediately. Let's see about the song.

These lyrics are in reference to the practice of record companies releasing shortened versions of hit songs, usually edited to between 3:00 and 3:30, in order to make them more "radio friendly". There are a number of hit songs from the 70's that have the full length version edited for radio. Sometimes I like the edited versions better, sometimes I don't, it depends on the song and what was edited out.

Also correct. In fact the next line, which I didn't use, is:

[If you're gonna have a hit
You gotta make it fit]

So they cut it down to 3:05

I guess I must have stumped everyone (it couldn't be lack of interest, right?), so here's another line from the same song that should help:

We love your body in that photograph, your home state sure must be proud
