If you think this song's title is long and cumbersome, you should see "Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict
." However, it is
the longest-titled #1 charting song to date.
(Deep breath...) "(Hey Won't You Play) Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song" was B. J. Thomas' second #1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, his other being "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head
." He also scored many #1s on the Adult Contemporary and Country charts, being something of a cross-genre sensation. Still, this hit came after a long period of waning (though still considerable) popularity.
According to the biography on his site, B. J. Thomas was about ready to settle to a home life with his wife and three daughters in recent decades, but his songs kept popping up in odd places. Like, for instance, "Raindrops" in the film Spider-Man 2
, which gave him the idea to look into the Internet market - where he discovered millions of fans he'd barely known he had.
