Quiz Question

One of a continuing series


Monday again. Time for a new Quiz Question of the Week. This is one for the culturally-deprived. What is significant about the following?

I’m a Cranky Old Yank in a Clanky Old Tank on the Streets of Yokohama with my Honolulu Mama Doin’ Those Beat-o, Beat-o Flat-On-My-Seat-o, Hirohito Blues

Hint: it’s in the Guinness Book of World Records. Post your answer in the comments section before you head to Google to get the answer.

Update and answer

Helen suggested this might be the longest title, and if she had said it was the longest song title she would have won first prize, a year’s subscription to Donald Trump’s health care program. Lucky Helen.

The clue is that songwriter Hoagy Carmichael is featured in the movie. He plays the piano and sings his songs in the bar where critical action takes place. What readers might also like to know is that Hoagy Carmichael is also in the Guinness Book of World Records as being the most prolific songwriter.
