Longest and Shortest ApX Song Titles

The latest ApologetiX single features one of our longest titles, "Christ Is the Rock (But I Pray They Don’t Stone Me),” coupled with one of our shortest, “Life.” That wasn’t a deliberate pairing, but it did get us wondering about where those titles ranked on the list. 

“Christ Is the Rock (But I Pray They Don’t Stone Me)” has 11 words — the second-most of any ApologetiX song. The only one with more is "It’s a Long Way to the Dock (If You Wanna Stop in Rome)” with 13 words. 

Next in line for most words in the title are:

“Did You Ever Ask Where Cain Got His Wife” (9)
“Just a Big Galoot/I Ain’t Got No Buddies” (9)
“Rippin’ Out a Whole Lot of Favorite Parts (8)
“All That Stuff’s in Their to Remind Me” (8)
“Once You See Truth You Can’t Unsee it (8)

"It’s a Long Way to the Dock (If You Wanna Stop in Rome)” also has the most letters of all of our titles (40). 

Next in line for most letters in the title are:

“Such Impressive Loving Smart Close Friends” (37)
“Living, Loving Faith (Please Just Don’t Worry” (36)
“Sabbath Day’s Quite Alright for Nice Things” (36)
“Christ Is the Rock (But I Pray They Don’t Stone Me)” (35)
“Full of Yourself” (Distinguished Young Man)” (35)

Meanwhile, “Life” is one of about 90 one-word titles on our list, the longest of which have 13 letters each, “Parrseverance” and “Christmasnite.” 

Life” has four letters (duh). Our other titles with the same length are “Amos,” “Ezra,” “Hell,” “Lock,” “Magi,” “Nain,” “YHWH,” and “A Lie.” 

Those all fall behind “L.S.F.” And what about "969"? It has three numbers but zero letters and zero words. However, it represents four words ... or five words if you take apart the compound word sixty-nine. That's an interesting conundrum. 

Anyway, we were curious about titles, and that’s the long and short of it.
