    Default the longest pop song titles

    I'm letting the 'Net do the work--why duplicate efforts? Neat-o comments with a bunch more titles added:
    A man accustomed to hear only the echo of his own sentiments, soon bars all the common avenues of delight, and has no part in the general gratification of mankind--Dr. Johnson
    What he said. Amen, Bro--JazzboCR

    That's the same list I found yesterday Jazzy, I just didn't know whether to copy and paste or simply do what you did....

    There's some seriously long titles on that list....the first
    Couple of dozen could be what us oldies call paragraphs... LOL

    CH - if you look at the Shawn Phillips CD I sent you will see one track is called

    'She was waiting for her mother at the station in Torino and you know I love you baby but it's getting too heavy too laugh' - crazy title - brilliant track.
    'The purpose of life is a life of purpose' - Athena Orchard.

    yes i know Jerome....
    thats where i got the idea from to start a thread like this...

    that is a good album after one listen...from memory theres only one track i dont like...its the really short one towards the end of the disc...
    i cant recall the titles off the top of my head but tracks 5 and 9 are my faves after one initial listen...

    i listened to the Vaya one time also...very good jazzy stuff on that album, she has a fantastic vocal quality.

    i'll give them another listen before i post them to give a better,more fairer score.

    feel free to add others from that linked page tha tJazzy posted....
    but please, lets try to keep them in some sort of order so as we dont duplicate ive done #1-thru-5, so six comes next, followd by #7(ok i think thats easy enough to get the grasp of guys)

    lets keep 'em going, a few at a time so we can listen to these songs...

    also, a brief one sentence of which genre the track would fit into would be good also.
