"Foreplay/Long Time" are two popular rock songs commonly grouped together from the classic rock band Boston, on the 1976 eponymous "Boston" album. It combines two songs, "Foreplay" and "Long Time" which are generally played as one on radio and are listed as "Foreplay/Long Time" on the album, as one track.

"Foreplay" is a progressive instrumental prelude, primarily consisting of rapid triplet arpeggios on Hammond M3 organ with a bass part doubled by a clavinet, and drums, with lead guitar joining at the end. According to Tom Scholz, leader and producer of Boston, the synthesizer-like swoops were not produced with synthesizers, but rather by scraping a pick along a string of a guitar. It was written in 1969. In February of 1977, the song hit #22 on the U.S. charts, and #11 on charts in the UK . [Rock Movers & Shakers by Dafydd Rees & Luke Crampton, 1991 Billboard Books.]

"Long Time" is a lyrical song released as a single. It was one of the band's biggest hits.

"Long Time" was used as the background music for a series of television commercials, titled "Timeless," for NASCAR in 2004, featuring a hypothetical race between drivers and cars of all eras of NASCAR competition.

"Foreplay/Long Time" is featured as a playable track in the video game "Rock Band". It is the last track that the player must beat on the vocal solo tour.

"Foreplay/Long Time" is played during Part 1 of the Season 2 finale of the television show Supernatural.

"Foreplay" was originally a non-lyrical song released by Boston.
