In progress...

What about the song: I Tamper With The Evidence At The Murder Site Of Odin by Dethklok.

Also what about: Done With Everything, Die For Nothing by Children of Bodom.

Sufjan Stevens's album Come On Feel the Illinoise! has some great ones. The longest is "The Black Hawk War, or, How to Demolish an Entire Civilization and Still Feel Good About Yourself in the Morning, or, We Apologize for the Inconvenience but You're Going to Have to Leave Now, or, I Have Fought the Big Knives and Will Continue to Fight Them until They Are off Our Lands!"

Also, "To The Workers of the Rock River Valley Region, I Have an Idea Concerning Your Predicament, And It Involves Tube Socks, A Paper Airplane, And Twenty-Two Able-Bodied Men."

Yeah, he started doing ridiculously long song titles on his third album, and by the time he reached 'Illinoise', he was out of control haha. I have neither the time nor the patience to type out all of his song titles for this, but I will at some point, because he would certainly get the honourable mention. His works would probably occupy a third of the list anyways :)

Shawn Phillips has an album called "Second Contribution"
The first track is called "She was waiting for her mother at the station in Torino and I know I love you Baby, but it's getting too heavy to laugh"

This has to be one of the longer song titles. It is definitely an excellent song!
