can the category be changed to Filipino instead of Tagalog? Because that would be the appropriate term for the Philippine National Language. Tagalog being just part of Filipino.

I edited all songs under the Tagalog sub-category to Filipino category. However, I disagree on the removal of this sub-category, as have been stated it is part of the supra-language "Filipino". Additionally, all songs written prior to the 1973 Constitution are considered "Tagalog" if written in the "Tagalog/Pilipino" language ("Pilipino" is the name of the language from 1959 to 1972 to avoid confusion with the ethnic group also known by the same name 'Tagalog').
In other words, if someone will submit lyrics for songs before 1973 and it's Tagalog, then these songs should be categorized as such. ^_^ --- Laibcoms (talk | Contribs) 15:32, 22 May 2009 (UTC)
To add, we can actually call 'Tagalog' as 'Pilipino' but it will further confuse people who are already confused. 'Pilipino' was a renamed 'Tagalog Language'. 'Filipino' on the other hand was born from scratch after the 1973 Constitution was approved and is not a renamed 'Pilipino' or 'Tagalog'. Why 'Filipino' is mainly 'Tagalog'? That's a long story :p --- Laibcoms (talk | Contribs) 15:40, 22 May 2009 (UTC)
