* {{Lampshaded}} by TheMonkees with the title "Long Title: Do I Have To Do This All Over Again?"
* During his first tour in 1979 after becoming a born-again Christian, BobDylan would introduce his newer songs by ridiculously long titles. But by the time he recorded and released those songs on the album ''Saved'', he mercifully shortened them. For example, "Hanging On To a Solid Rock Made Before The Foundation Of The World" became simply "Solid Rock." Of course, back in 1966 he managed to release a song called "Stuck Inside of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again."

** Later on, there's "You'll Make Me Lonesome When You Go" (which is surprisingly almost exactly the same title length as "Stuck Inside of Mobile")
* Music/TheBeatles' song "Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except For Me And [[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys My Monkey]]".

* Though nowhere near some of the examples shown here, {{Coldplay}}'s latest album ''Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends'' qualifies (despite showing only "Viva La Vida" on the cover itself).

* "Jeremiah Peabody's Polyunsaturated Quick-Dissolving Fast-Acting Pleasant-Tasting Green and Purple Pills" by RayStevens supposedly once held the record for the longest titled song on the Billboard Hot 100. (It took [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stars_on_45_Medley a medley of ten songs]] to beat it.)
** Stevens later recorded an even longer-titled song: "Ned Nostril and His South Seas Paradise, Puts Your Blues on Ice, Cheap at Twice the Price Band (Ikky-Ikky, Ukky-Ukky)". Sadly, it wasn't a single.
