New Delhi, July 26 (ANI): Australian songwriters, including Lisa Mitchell and Josh Pyke, have joined hands to set a world record for the longest ever song.

The grand project attracted 168 co-writers after budding artists were invited to contribute snippets of lyrics to the world first feat.

Producers are now planning to release the song as a charity single.

“This world record attempt was a great way to draw attention to those at the coal face, the songwriters who aren’t always the face you see on the TV or the voice you hear on the radio but who need their name in a big book,” English.news.cn quoted Machine Gun Fellatio keyboard player Chit Chat Von Loopin Stab as saying.”Also, attempting this appeals to my work ethic since this is a world record that doesn’t even exist yet,” he added.

The world’s longest song was achieved as part of the Song Summit songwriting conference that was held in Sydney in June 2010.

Former Midnight Oil singer and federal minister Peter Garrett, provided the first two lines with the words, “There’s a song in my heart, there’s a story to sing.” (ANI)
