Usage

For linking a live version of a song to the studio version. This template should be placed adjacent to the {{Song}} template at the top of the song's page.

Example 1:

To provide a link to the studio version of the song:

{{Live Lyrics|Hallelujah}}

will result in:

This is a live version of "Hallelujah".

Example 2:

A second parameter can be added to provide a link to the album that the original song appears on:

{{Live Lyrics|Hallelujah|Various Positions (1984)}}

This will result in:

This is a live version of "Hallelujah". The original version appears on Various Positions (1984).

Example 3:

A third parameter can be added for variations in the artist's name between the live and studio versions. Typically this is where a solo artist covers a song that they originally recorded with a band, e.g. Paul Rodgers/Free, Rod Stewart/Faces, Bono/U2. Note: The {{Cover}} template should also be applied in these situations.

For the live version of "Hey Joe" by Jimi Hendrix, originally released on The Jimi Hendrix Experience album Are You Experienced, insert:

{{Live Lyrics|Hey Joe|Are You Experienced (1967)|The Jimi Hendrix Experience}}

This will result in:

This is a live version of "Hey Joe". The original version appears on Are You Experienced (1967) by The Jimi Hendrix Experience.


If the album the original song appears on is not known the second parameter still needs to be included but can be left blank:

{{Live Lyrics|Hey Joe||The Jimi Hendrix Experience}}

This will result in:

This is a live version of "Hey Joe" by The Jimi Hendrix Experience.
