12 June 2013 - Primitive Radio Gods - Standing Outside A Broken Phone Booth With Money In My Hand

So far, I think this is the longest titled song we've featured on this blog.  A Top 10 hit in 1996, it certainly isn't the hit song with the longest title of all time (we won't even go there), but it is long enough to be frequently abbreviated or abridged.

The song itself is very simple, with a heavy drum and bass accompaniment alongside mournful lyrics and a repeated sample from the B.B.King song "How Blue Can You Get?"   But all these simple components together make a very dense and complex song that draws you in again and again.
