Don't think so, but they surely could: "Sir B. McKenzie's Daughter's Lament For the 77th Mounted Lancer's Retreat From The Straits of Loch Knombe, In The Year of Our Lord 1727, On The Occasion of the Announcement of Her Marriage to the Laird of Kinleakie"

So, any John Fahey song titles?
Avatar 6:03pm ndbob:

Ha Doug!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 6:05pm Doug Schulkind:

Surely could include some Fahey, but, sadly, no, NGH.

What are some of YOUR favorite long song titles?
Avatar 6:05pm kat330:

Hi, Doug, and Drummer Somes! Middle of mealtime, per usual, but we're listening and will peck a few words in (between pecks of food) here and there.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 6:06pm Doug Schulkind:

I'm throwing that question out to the entire assembled gang, not just NGH.

Howdy kat330! My regards to Sir Philo.
Avatar 6:07pm kat330:

Doesn't Fiona Apple have some ungodly long title?
Avatar 6:07pm Sir Philo Gristle:

Present, but soon demoted. Hey'all!
Avatar 6:08pm ndbob:

heya kat! I will soon be living in southern Indiana - moving to Bloomington next month
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 6:08pm Doug Schulkind:

Fiona's was an album title. Here:

"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"
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 6:09pm Doug Schulkind:

@Sir Philo Gristle
Demoted perhaps, but never demented.
Avatar 6:09pm ndbob:

@Doug I bought that but don't know if I ever finished reading the title
Avatar 6:10pm Philo Gristle:

Not sure about that, Doug! I can't believe the question has stumped me. Movie titles, sure, but songs... doggone it. Flaky interwebs here today, so fingers crossed.
Avatar 6:11pm kat330:

@Doug: Guess that doesn't qualify as a song title, but impressive nonetheless. And probably the song Apple doesn't fall far from the Tree LP.

@ndbob: YAAYY! I know you were always sort of hinting about such a move and so mollusk it's happening now! We will simply have to organize a meet.

@kat That sounds great! My lease starts Oct 1 but it may take another week or two before I settle up everything here
Avatar 6:13pm Philo Gristle:

There was longish title on Forever Changes, something about Clark and Hilldale and other places I cannot recall.

From the Fahey canon: "The Waltz That Carried Us Away and Then a Mosquito Came and Ate Up My Sweetheart",
Avatar 6:14pm still b/p:

Gary's entry was the very one that just came to mind. A very entertaining title when we wuz young.
Avatar 6:15pm kat330:

Yes, folks, we have had connection woes, off and on, since last Friday. Seems we *really* lose connectivity between about 8:30 am and 4:00 pm. When I called ATT and suggested: Perhaps some new "industry" down the road is sucking up all our juice?" they of course implicated our own equipment. But vindication came at 2:50 pm today. A robot message saying our repair ticket had been canceled due to a "network problem."
Avatar 6:15pm glenn:

maybe the people would be the times or between clark and hillsdale.
Avatar 6:16pm ndbob:

NGH - one of my favorite titles
Avatar 6:16pm Philo Gristle:

The Haze! True original wild man, much missed.
Avatar 6:16pm hyde:

@kat330 ack I hate that. I occasionally have connection issues that kill my WFMU stream and it is sooooo annoying
Avatar 6:18pm kat330:

@hyde: The connectivity loss is upsetting enough, but to have a CSR INSIST "You may be charged if we find the problem is NOT with our "stuff" -- all threatening like, you might as well not place an order. I really wanted to call back after the robot notice and say, guess you owe me an apology for all that you put me through in my call to you.
Avatar 6:20pm still b/p:

Someone should write a long song title including the longest place name is the US, Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg in Massachusetts. Apparently, it doesn't actually mean what's been claimed as the translation: "You fish on your side, I fish on my side, and nobody fish in the middle."
Avatar 6:22pm Philo Gristle:

@ndbob Had one of the best summers weather wise in Southern Indiana this year, hope it holds up for you!
Avatar 6:23pm glenn:

it translates to "holy fuck, i'm glad this lake isn't in wales."

indeed; trippy stuff, this yost!
Avatar 6:33pm Philo Gristle:

Almost forgot "The Siege and Investiture of Baron Von Frankenstein's Castle at Weisseria"

Yep, this Yost is great. Kinda reminds me of some Bruce Haak stuff.
Avatar 6:34pm kat330:

(reaized I might get a really long song title out of Holly! :)

@Doug this Phil Yost thing was totally new to me, too. Love that Ghost Capital, noticed today I'm a little behind there

Hey hey, it's Aurélie! Yay Aurélie!
Avatar 6:40pm Holly in NC:

Flaming Lips have a *ton* of long titles.
But perhaps more to Doug's taste:
"I'm a Cranky Old Yank in a Clanky Old Tank on the Streets of Yokohama with my Honolulu Mama Doin? Those Beat-o, Beat-o Flat-On-My-Seat-o, Hirohito Blues" - Hoagy Carmichael
Ok, now I'm cheating and using Google, so I'll stop. The longest title is quite something!
Avatar 6:40pm ndbob:

and a fine song!
Avatar 6:40pm Aurélie E:

yay you for putting some Melvin on air!!!!
Avatar 6:41pm Philo Gristle:

Jan & Dean had a long one with Anaheim Sewing Circle something or other.... but I'm eating and thus not googling.
Avatar 6:42pm ndbob:

@Philo can't remember the full title but the flip of a hit
Avatar 6:43pm kat330:

I have messy chicken finger so not googling and not much typing either.
Avatar 6:44pm hyde:

fine! I'll do it. The jan and Dean is: "The Anaheim, Azusa & Cucamonga Sewing Circle, Book Review And Timing Association"
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 6:45pm listener james from westwood:

thanks, hyde! and now i'm craving chicken fingers.
Avatar 6:45pm Philo Gristle:

Oh yeah, "Man who got a headache and accidentally saved the world" (or close!) was on "Clouds Taste Metallic."

Was a big fan of Jan & Dean at age 8 to 10 or so. Thanks ndbob & Hyde!

@Joe Whenever I make funny cow sounds on kat's keyboard, she says it reminds her of your show. I don't know what that means!

Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 6:53pm Doug Schulkind:

@Joe McG (re: Philo Gristle)
Major complement!
Avatar 6:53pm kat330:

To clarify, Philo's talking about my new Yamaha keyboard. Has a "mooo" sound that evokes your opening song.

Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 6:58pm Doug Schulkind:

The shortest song on tonight's broadcast: Gordon Alexander's "A Bunch of Us Were Sitting Around a Candle in San Fransisco Getting Stoned and I Hope You're There Next Time" clocked in at 1:59.

It would be fun to find a song whose title takes longer to read than to hear it.

Yes, thanks, Doug! It was the most in all sense! :)
