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.

  1. Sorry, the “That” shouldn’t be in there — the corrected title still qualifies:
    “Stop Me If You Think You’ve Heard This One Before”

    1. Good call! How’d I forget about Morrissey and The Smiths! “Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want” is another possibility.
