What album has the longest title ever to chart…?
With 78 letters, not including spaces or punctuation, it is: “My People Were Fair And Had Sky In Their Hair, But Now They’re Content to Wear Stars on Their Brows“!
That was the debut album released by Tyrannosaurus Rex (T.Rex) in 1968, but it wasn’t until 1972 that it became a hit, following the success of the singles “Hot Love” and “Get On It”.
Beats the crap out of “Introducing the Hardline According To Terence Trent D’Arby” with its 51 letters, doesn’t it!
Special mention should be given to American singer Fiona Apple, whose 1999 album was titled “When the Pawn Hits the Conflicts He Thinks like a King What He Knows Throws the Blows When He Goes to the Fight and He’ll Win the Whole Thing ‘fore He Enters the Ring There’s No Body to Batter When Your Mind Is Your Might so When You Go Solo, You Hold Your Own Hand and Remember That Depth Is the Greatest of Heights and If You Know Where You Stand, Then You Know Where to Land and If You Fall It Won’t Matter, Cuz You’ll Know That You’re Right“, consisting of 444 letters! However, this was felt too long, so the album is officially know as “When The Pawn…”. This, therefore, precludes it from holding the record for the longest title ever.
