Fiona Apple's new CD comes complete with 75 word title

Clocking in at a spectacular 75 words, the title of LA-based singer-songwriter Fiona Apple's new album has just set a new world record.

A Guinness Book Of Records spokesman says, "There wasn't a category for this before, but we have now verified it as a record."

"We can't think of anything that comes near," says a head-scratching Andy Gray, editor of music anorak's bible Record Collector. "Even bands in the hippy heyday don't come close."

The album title was conceived in response to a Spin magazine article Apple claims made her, "look like a moron."

"It came from being made fun of and ten, of course, it becomes a thing I'm made fun of for," she says.

Brace yourselves, that title in full is: "When The Pawn Hits The Conflicts He Goes To The Fight And He'll Win The Whole Thing 'Fore He Enters The Ring There's No Body To Batter When Your Mind Is Your Might So When You Go Solo, You Hold Your Own Hand And Remember That Depth Is The Greatest Of Heights And If You Stand, Then You Know Where To Land And If You Fall It Won't Matter, Cuz You'll Know That You're Right (phew!).

(I think it's hilarious that a magazine prints a story to slightly poke fun
at Fi for her wordy title and then completely fucks up the story
themselves - definitely an enjoyable irony - Sally)
