Delta Goodrem Breaks Songwriting World Record
Delta Goodrem's stirring Commonwealth Games anthem, Together We Are One has broken the world record for most cliches packed into one song.
Each of the 44 phrases contained within the song is a cliche, an achievement unmatched in music history.
While the games anthem does comply with the Eurovision Song Contest's Rule 18B.2 stating, "All songs must include an uplifting key change three quarters the way through," Delta and her Irish bloke, Brian McFadden were snubbed by Irish team selectors.
Instead, Ireland have decided to run with a song containing only 11 cliches, Brian Kennedy's Every Song Is A Cry For Love.
This is Delta's second world record after recently claiming the record for the world's longest neck by a female singer/songwriter.
