Welcome to, Jomidi!

LyricWiki is a free, editable database that has over 2,054,106 pages of lyrics! Included in that database can be songs from any genre, country, or language imaginable. Whatever you are into musically, there is likely something here for you. And if not...please add whatever you can!

If you need help getting started, check out the help pages. Actually, you might want to check them out anyway, particularly the Formatting Artists, Formatting Albums and Formatting Songs sections, to see which cool templates you can (and should) use.

If you need any assistance, you can ask for help on my talk page. Another good place to get help with specific editing questions is the Help Desk. The Help Desk is on the watch lists of the site administrators, so you are likely to get an answer fairly quickly. If you have a more general site-related question, you could place your question on the Community Portal, which is where much of the discussion about the site and planning goes on.

An important tip for new users: LyricWiki breaks some of the usual capitalization rules for artists, albums, and song titles. Please see LyricWiki:Page Names for more information. These special rules apply to any language that uses Roman-styled letters, whether German, French, English, Spanish, Italian, etc., etc.

Have fun!

Released parameter

You don't have to add the |Released = parameter anymore. It's not needed. :) Titaki 20:03, November 14, 2009 (UTC)

American Without Tears

Nice find. I must have taken my cue from the existing LW pages that suggest that this song did not appear until a reissue of Blood And Chocolate. I see from discogs (, however, that there was a 1986 release with this song. This should be cleaned up on LW. Also, as you probably have noticed, King of America belongs on the Elvis Costello page. Will you be cleaning this up or do you want me to? Thanks for your edits --Rossetyler 03:51, March 3, 2010 (UTC)

BTW, if you are so inclined, please join in on the discussion at where we are talking about how to handle this kind of song that is both performed by the artist "Elvis Costello" and the artist "Elvis Costello and the Attractions". --Rossetyler 03:56, March 3, 2010 (UTC)

I started to attempt to clean up the King of America page, but I've gotten myself into a bit of a mess with it and am currently stuck. I'd appreciate your help in fixing what I've done to it. When the album was released, it was credited to The Costello Show (featuring Elvis Costelllo). I redirected the page to The Costello Show:King Of America (1986). I changed my mind after moving it, though, deciding it'll be a lot easier for people to find the album if it's included on the Elvis Costello artist page rather than a new The Costello Show artist page, which would only ever have that one album on it. I tried getting the album page moved or redirected to Elvis Costello:King Of America, but all I managed to accomplish was to get myself into a redirect loop. I broke out of the loop, but I didn't manage to get the page to my desired state as an Elvis Costello album. It's still The Costello Show. I need help.


As for the version of American Without Tears on the Blood and Chocolate re-issue, it's titled "American Without Tears No. 2" on the cd (allmusic also lists it with the 'No. 2' suffix) so there won't be any conflict with King Of America's American Without Tears. --Jomidi 08:29, March 3, 2010 (UTC)

I think I fixed up everything as it should be. Please check it out:
I fixed up your redirect problem by copying the original content to the redirect page and then changing the original content to a redirect. I did a similar thing for all Songs on the album.
I fixed up some of the songs' album links per the discussion I referenced. --Rossetyler 02:25, March 5, 2010 (UTC)
Looks great. Thanks much. Now I can get to work moving the album towards its gold star. --Jomidi 09:01, March 5, 2010 (UTC)


Do you know what song this is? please help. Thanks. GG360


Jomidi 15:27, June 13, 2010 (UTC)

That's "Alone" by Angel Blake, on 2008 album "The Descended". --Senvaikis (talk) 16:53, June 13, 2010 (UTC)


Do you know if this wiki has the lyrics to Get back up by T.I. feat.Chris Brown.

Job Exchange

Hi, what's the reason for taking back your request? Is it because the information was wrong or because it was weird formatted? If second, the only "wrong" thing about the request were the curled brackets in the parameters, it's |template1 = Covered, not |template1 = {{Covered}}. - Chris 20:05, November 25, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, after previewing my request, I removed the brackets and it still looked odd to me. Anyway, I've decided just to edit the pages where I'm allowed. I contribute to this site because it satisfies a compulsion to edit, categorize and organize data, and I found it somehow less satisfying to hand my work off to someone else. --Jomidi 02:56, November 26, 2010 (UTC)

Album types

Please stop removing album types -- Rossetyler 15:49, November 28, 2011 (UTC)

Since they're optional, I only remove them if they're not necessary or don't make sense. I don't think a live album with "Live" in the title needs clarification, and I think "compilation album" is a poor description of a 'best of', when "compilation" alone means something different.
New York Dolls:Seven Day Weekend (1992) is certainly not a "Best Of" album. Rather, it is a compilation of demo recordings and, as such, generally thought of as a "compilation album" ( and so was accurately LW-typed. I appreciate your argument regarding the "live album" type being somewhat redundant with the "Live" in the title and probably wouldn't have made an argument about it except that it seemed that you were indiscriminately removing all LW album types (without any edit summary to explain the cause). The reason that I originally typed it as such is because I religiously/objectively/consistently classify/type _all_ albums as they would be on MusicBrainz (the best authority for such music metadata IMO). The album page is so typed, the Albums page is so typed and so are the songs on each album. I rather like objectively/consistently approaching such things (I don't have to think!) and, so, would like to keep such classifications. -- Rossetyler 04:36, November 29, 2011 (UTC)
True, Seven Day Weekend isn't a 'best of' (I own a copy), and "compilation album" describes this type of collection better than it describes 'best of' collections. I probably wouldn't have removed it if the "compilation album" term hadn't become so associated in my mind with all anthology type collections. I'd still suggest a different descriptor, like "demo collection", but I have a tendency to overdefine things (and I prefer undefined to what I feel is an inadequate definition). Anyway, it's less important to me than it is to you, so I won't remove album types... unless I see something factually incorrect or absurd. Have a good one. --Jomidi 10:52, November 29, 2011 (UTC)
Yes, I am sure that there are better descriptions of this type of album but I am also sure that there would be arguments over these descriptions. I prefer to do the easy thing and just categorize them as Musicbrainz does (which, BTW, would also categorize a "best of" as a "compilation"). Unlike LW, MB has a "style council" that agonizes over such things and its easy just to ride their coattails on such issues.
Anyway, thanks for working with me, it's always a pleasure. And thanks for all of your edits! -- Rossetyler 14:38, November 29, 2011 (UTC)

Related Artists

At Maria Muldur [1] you entered related artists, sure long ago. Can you qualify them somehow? (red links are ok, as long as the rel is valid) Would be nice if you update the info while adding the AI template as well, which helps to unclump the Related Artists and qualify the rels.
Needless to say, same goes for every artist page where you have entered Related artist. Good practice is to use wikipedia/allmusic or some valid reference for related acts, qualify what the project was that led to the rel being entered see Joe Satriani and plz make sure that sound alike artists, those who attended the same festival, of same genre or locale, on same compilation etc. are not entered as Related artists. I know that some really bad examples of Related artists exist on site and I am on a mission to apply QA in that department Wink Any questions? I'm all ears. cheers -- ∃cho⚡ierr∀ ( ) 00:02, February 10, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks. Honestly, I don't remember adding related artists to Maria Muldaur. It looks like I just grabbed them from her allmusic page. They're all there [2]. I don't know anything about her career. Good luck on your mission. --Jomidi (talk) 23:01, February 10, 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for clarifying that. In that case please do not add related artists to any artist pages (in case). Similar artists are certainly not what we mean by related artists! If I come across anymore that you may have entered, I'll just delete them. Happy editing!
--ES (Talk) 23:28, February 10, 2013 (UTC)
Delete away.
I agree about similar artists. Either I wasn't paying attention when I did it or they weren't categorized that way before allmusic changed its look. I'm hoping the latter, because I was embarrassed when I saw them under that heading the other day. You must have thought I was an idiot.
--Jomidi (talk) 00:14, February 13, 2013 (UTC)
Good to know where you found your information, even though it doesn't apply in our case. AllMusic's related tab purpose certainly differs from our AI box, and it contains nothing (in Maria's case) except Geoff (her brother) that we can use. But the left column of the related tab at AM has good stuff that we can use: Active/Born/Aliases/Membership. Another good source is the wikipedia page of the artist, (Related acts) and they further clarify the relationship within the article. Anyway, the purpose of my mission is to inform the public about the artist, and lead them to other relevant artist pages that we have. Sound alike is just to vague and subject to taste. I thought you used a source that I hadn't looked up, no more! :)
