Top 5 Songs With Long Song Titles

Like I lot of people, I’ve been listening to Prince (R.I.P.) a lot lately. “I Could Never Take The Place Of Your Man” has always been one of my favorites and got me thinking about songs with long titles. It takes a special artist to write a song that lives up to a wordy title; bonus points when the name is actually in the lyrics; extra bonus points if the title is used as the chorus. So here’s my Top 5 songs that justify their long titles. NOTE: To qualify, the song title had to be at least 9 words without counting anything in parenthesis.

Top 5 Songs With Long Song Titles

“I Could Never Take The Place Of Your Man” – Prince

“If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next” – Manic Street Preachers

“It’s The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)” – R.E.M.

“Stella Was A Diver And She Was Always Down” – Interpol

“You Only Tell Me You Love Me When You’re Drunk” – Pet Shop Boys
