World's Longest Song Titles

Created by SiHo_92 on 16 Март 2019 | Последно редактирано от SiHo_92 на 29 Март 2019

I thought it might be fun to create a collection about the worldwide longest song titles!

You can tell me further songs that should be included here if they fulfil these conditions:
• Title has to be at least 30 letters long.
• Only letters count – spaces, numbers, other characters will be ignored.
• Any language is allowed; if a title is written in another script than Latin, only the Romanized title counts.

"Regretting what I said to you when you called me at eleven o'clock on Friday morning to tell me that one o'clock Friday afternoon you were gonna leave your office, go downstairs, hail a cab, to go out to the airport, to catch a plane, to go skiing in the Alps for two weeks. Not that I wanted to go with you; I wasn't able to leave town, I'm not a very good skier, I couldn't expect you to pay my way, but after going out with you for three years, I don't like surprises. (A Musical Apology)" – Christine Lavin: 374 letters

Thanks for the suggestions! Teeth smile
I had to up the minimum length to 30 letters.

Here are the songs I could find (I may have missed some, but if I find any, I'll probably post them in another comment):

1) Storia di una donna che ha amato due volte un uomo che non sapeva amare (57 letters)
By the way, the title of the album in which the song is included, Per aver visto un uomo piangere e soffrire Dio si trasformò in musica e poesia, is even longer (64 letters), but it doesn't have a song of the same name Teeth smile

2) Dimmi che mi ami, che mi ami, che tu ami, che tu ami solo me (43 letters)

3) La musica è niente se tu non hai vissuto (32 letters)

4) Così va se ti va e questo finché mi andrà (32 letters)

5) If I Thought You'd Ever Change Your Mind (32 letters)

6) Il mare più grande che c'è (I Love You, Man) (31 letters)

7) Per te che mi hai chiesto una canzone (30 letters exactly)

8) March 10, 1959 (Memories of the Taste of Freedom)
This one has a long title as well if we count the date in it: the title in brackets has 27 letters, so it's up to you whether to include it or not Teeth smile
