I know you've been around for a while but I just thought I would welcome you back and provide you with some links (as these have been updated). Happy editing!  ♫Яєdxx Actions Words 09:23, 4 February 2009 (UTC)


[[Chris Isaak:Speak of the Devil (1998)]] should be Chris Isaak:Speak Of The Devil (1998); see LyricWiki:Page Names. Thanks! — 6x9 (Talk) 15:15, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

On a related note, I have removed the move request from [[A-Ha]]. As LyricWiki:Page Names requires an initial capital letter, it will be moved to A-ha.    Kiefer    talk    contribs    admin   02:14, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
The move has been completed. Good luck!    Kiefer    talk    contribs    admin   02:35, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

The Jackson 5

Can you provide a link to explain your request? I know that some releases had Jackson 5 on the cover (or Jackson Five). I also know they later became The Jacksons. But I believe The Jackson 5 to be correct. See also wikipedia article.  ♫Яєdxx Actions Words 06:44, 25 March 2009 (UTC) EDIT:Ah apologies, I didn't visit the Category:Requests For Moves page.

Joy Division:Walked In Line

The issue is not what was recorded first but which was officially released first. These are two very different things. The recording you reference was not officially released until 13 years after the first release on Joy Division:Still (1981). The lyrics should reflect the first official release of the song which was how I entered them. Also, these lyrics are as they officially appear in the Joy Division:Heart And Soul (1997) booklet. The album references in the song template and the annotation on the Bronze edit clearly reflect what version of the song is in question.

If you would like to publish a different version of the lyrics then it should be qualified as such. I would suggest doing this as Joy Division:They Walked In Line as the track is titled on the 1994 release you reference In addition, the Joy Division:Warsaw (1994) album should be added and referenced it in the Song template of the song. If you would like, I can do all of this for you. -- Rossetyler 00:37, September 21, 2010 (UTC)

BTW, there is some question at to whether the Warsaw release was ever official as wikipedia suggests. There are certainly many bootleg releases of this material but this stuff shouldn't count. While the notes in the Heart And Soul booklet do describe the recording session, there is no mention of a official "Warsaw" release. This version should definitely take a back seat to the version released on Still. -- Rossetyler 00:44, September 21, 2010 (UTC)

Machinae Supremacy's Laser Speed Force

(In response to my user talk) I actually don't even remember changing it to "fight", though it was probably because I heard it that way and it also makes more sense for me in the context. However since the official lyrics say "flight" as well, you are free to change this at your will (though I still hear only "fight" myself and it makes more sense in the context for me, but I guess that's not a criteria for this wiki) --Mihawk90 (talk) 19:26, March 27, 2015 (UTC)

Subliminal lyrics indicated as sung

HI SW. Your latest italic additions to 2112 leads me to believe that you were (maybe) listening to 2125... or 2102. Where did you hear all that text?! --ES (talk) 23:19, July 21, 2015 (UTC)

It's in the booklet. --LYRIC-Stormwatch (talk) 23:29, July 21, 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguated artist editing

Please see: [1].
And please note that lyric-less albums have a rather short lifespan. --ES (talk) 02:28, October 18, 2016 (UTC)

Which makes zero sense! --LYRIC-Stormwatch (talk) 02:29, October 18, 2016 (UTC)
An album page only makes sense with lyrics in it, that's why we're lyricswikia, not Discography.wikia. hth --ES (talk) 02:33, October 18, 2016 (UTC)
On the contrary. Seeing an album lacking lyrics, an editor will feel inclined to look for and add the missing information. Not seeing the album, he won't. --LYRIC-Stormwatch (talk) 02:36, October 18, 2016 (UTC)
That was your friendly warning on the matter of empty album pages. Feel free to start a blog on the subject.
I believe people transcribe what they like, not red links. --ES (talk) 02:44, October 18, 2016 (UTC)

Regarding speech samples

Hi Stormwatch, I did not notice that the lyric wiki had private messages, so only today did I notice your comment from April 2015, concerning the issue of including speech samples in the lyrics. The song in question is 'Think', by Information Society. I am the lead singer and one of the founders of that band. I grant you that that is a profoundly subtle and subjective question, and so I have only ever applied that rule to songs by my own band. In many cases, this means I am editing (or originating) the lyric pages for my own lyrics. I can tell you that in the case of *my* band, anyway, the way we write lyrics and the process by which speech sample are added are usually so separate that to consider our speech samples to be lyrics would simply be inaccurate. They way we use them is to vaguely evoke the feeling of meaning while taking care to refrain from adding any actual meaning. The lyrics are generally complete before we get anywhere near a stage at which speech samples would be added.

I hope that makes my edits seem less willful or arbitrary.

Hey... *You* are the one adding Brasilian advertising to lyrics pages. WTF? Stop it.

Hey, I don't want to intimidate anyone. I just don't give a damn what certain people say.
