Hello,

What is the name of the longest (I believe) one-word title of a song?

(I hope I have posted my question at an appropriate board.)

How about "Supercallifragilisticexpiallidocious" (sp?) from Mary Poppins.

If that is not acceptable as being a non word, then how about :
"Californication"(Red Hot Chilli Peppers) which isn't one either I suppose...

Thanks for replying.

Izzi got it right. It is a song from Mary Poppins. I was listening to it while I was browsing the Forum this morning about 4.08 pm Sunday afternoon, FT location but early Monday morning my time.

It is accepted by English Language as one of the longest proper nouns.

Interested with its lyric?

supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

Cheers,

"You Can Make Me Dance Sing Or Anything (Even Take The Dog For A Walk, Mend A Fuse, Fold Away The Ironing Board, Or Any Other Domestic Shortcomings)" by Rod Stewart and the Faces, But this is bracketed

Guinness Book of Records always held that Hoagy Carmichael's 1943 song,"I'm a Cranky old yank, in my clanky old tank, on the streets of Yokohama with my Honolulu mama, singin' those beat-o, beat-o, flat on my seat-o, Hirohito Blues"
was the longest...

"How Can You Believe Me When I Said I Love You When You Know I've Been A Liar All My Life", also know as the "Liar Song", a Burton-Lane vaudeville-style patter number from "Royal Wedding", perhaps Hollywood's longest title at 21 words.

The only one that I know of is this one from Mary Poppins "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious."

(I knew how to spell this word when I was a Freshmen in High School and now I am an Adult. I knew how to pronounce it when I was in the third grade.)

By The Orb on the album 'The Orb's Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld' is a track called 'A huge everlasting pulsating brain that rules from the centre of the universe'. Weird eh? Long though.
