Kelis - Food

Probably there are different versions of the CD. My source comes from Europe. Therefore the item was placed back into a different row.--Preciouslittle (talk) 14:12, May 3, 2014 (UTC)

lose != loose

[1] hth — 6×9 (Talk) 15:02, June 4, 2017 (UTC)

You are right, but in the digital booklet stands loose. Perhaps artist an expression. Not my decision...
Or perhaps a typo. Lyrics should be transcribed as sung, not as written. So unless there's more evidence that she actually means "to loose" (which doesn't make any sense even grammatically), we'll go with "to lose". — 6×9 (Talk) 06:38, June 5, 2017 (UTC)

Notation in Song titles

Text like (interlude), (skit), (intro), (outro), (feat....) are not used in page names unless it is required for disambiguation, even though the track list indicates it as part of the song title, which is not the case.
* Also, such text is indicated on artist and album pages outside of the link text --ES (talk) 04:10, April 4, 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for the helpful information.

Duplicate links

I had a number of Joan Baez covers of Bob Dylan songs I had edited, and an administrator went through them and removed links to Dylan in the credit boxes, since you are already linked to his Artist page through the cover info. He referred to his corrections as “dupe links”. Thanks for looking --Pastafazoo (talk) 06:05, July 20, 2018 (UTC)

"|" in Page Names

Per LyricWiki:Page_Names#Technical_Restrictions, in cases where "|" appears in page names, it is replaced with "/", not "L". hth --ES (talk) 23:47, July 31, 2018 (UTC)

Mama, You Been On My Mind

Hi - I just saw that you undid my edit of this song. I've had a discussion about this with another admin on this topic (XxTimberlakexX), and he said the following:

2) Though this can sometimes get a bit messy and confusing, from what I've seen, we usually consider the first released version of a song to be the original. Some good examples: Cyndi Lauper's "I Drove All Night" was originally recorded by Roy Orbison, but his version was not released until after his death, therefore it's marked as a cover on here. Another would be The Turtles' "You Baby". Though it was originally recorded by The Vogues, their version did not get a release until this 1996 compilation. Long story short, use the first released version. XxTimberlakexx (talk) (contribs)23:52, September 11, 2018 (UTC)

Bob Dylan first recorded this in 1964, but released this song 26 years after Johnny Cash made the first release in February, 1965. Judy Collins was 2nd in Sept, 1965, and Joan Baez followed in Oct., 65.

Thank you--Pastafazoo (talk) 16:49, September 29, 2018 (UTC)

Chrissie Hynde:A Plan Too Far

Hey, thanks for checking my edit to the page you created for this song. The edit I made kind of submitted itself before I was able to provide an edit-description. I was going to note the fact that I listened to this with a good pair of earphones on an HQ-audio-version from my music app, repeatedly, while transcribing those lyrics, so I was very sure of the lyrics I tried to correct before doing so.

There are a couple of words misheard in the lyrics of that particular version, off the Stockholm album, such as "see you've gone a plan too far" "see you've got a plan too far". Again, I tripple-checked that with very clear High-Quality audio provided by my music app and good earphones, and the line does make more sense as well the latter way.

I don't know what the album's liner-notes say but, it is always possible that the record producer or her band-manager just made an honest mistake with a couple of words there. —RyaNayR (talkcontribs) 23:30, January 18, 2019 (UTC)

I will also reference this as my reasoning. It's the same thing as 6x9 described there—sometimes it's better to go with how it's actually heard vs how it's written. —RyaNayR (talkcontribs) 23:50, January 18, 2019 (UTC)

You are completely right. I agree with that. Most texts are only copied, so it is open to you to correct them. Even with a check mistakes can not be avoided, sometimes also not clear. a-Hey, a-Yeah, w-oh or different breathing techniques should not be in the lyrics. Otherwise your changes are okay. So happy editing. If in doubt ask an admin. You can also upgrading the page to Silver or Gold status. --Preciouslittle (talk) 07:51, January 19, 2019 (UTC)

I will keep those things in mind. Thanks! —RyaNayR (talkcontribs) 21:17, January 20, 2019 (UTC)

I think I know why that line with "got" vs "gone" is so easily misheard; it's got a bass drum hit right at that point in the word that makes the perceived sound change just enough to sound like an "n" annunciation. —RyaNayR (talkcontribs) 19:42, January 31, 2019 (UTC)

I think that those lyrics are probably at least 99% correct, so, does that mean it needs to be upgraded to Silver? I don't know the requirements for Gold or Silver, so, I'm not sure how to proceed. —RyaNayR (talkcontribs) 19:54, January 31, 2019 (UTC)

The side needs a watcher and also please read for more information: --Preciouslittle (talk) 20:02, January 31, 2019 (UTC)

Okay. The song needs a watcher you mean? I could do that if need be. I'll read over that guide to help me understand page rankings in the meantime. —RyaNayR (talkcontribs) 04:54, February 01, 2019 (UTC)
So what I got from the help page.... Well I'm not really sure. Could you please review the page yourself, and at least tell me whether it qualifies as a Silver status article, then I'll know for sure how it should be approached? Sorry, I just don't want to make drastic changes without conforming to this wiki's general style conventions. If you could start that process, I'll know where to follow. —RyaNayR (talkcontribs) 05:12, February 01, 2019 (UTC)
Done. Good examples are the Kate Bush sides and the sides from Redrkr. If you are only a watcher you can go to Silver status. If you additionally certify the song and all other requirements filled in, you can upgrade to gold. Don't forget the talk page. Hope it helps. --Preciouslittle (talk) 15:26, February 1, 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, that helps a bit... I'm still not sure how all the requirements for Gold work, but it looks like you've got that covered on this song anyways. Thanks for that. Also if some of those "line-break-type" lyrics are best left on one line, I'll conform to that as well from now on. —RyaNayR (talkcontribs) 20:47, February 01, 2019 (UTC)

About this song again: could you please incorporate the following information into the CreditBox, as I don't yet know what I'm doing with the parameters. This came from the YouTube description:

I doubt all of it has a place, but if you could fit what you can into the CreditBox, that would be helpful. Thanks —RyaNayR (talkcontribs) 21:12, March 28, 2019 (UTC)

Thanks! That gives me a good example of how to do that in the future. —RyaNayR (talkcontribs) 11:03, March 29, 2019 (UTC)

Let me CC this issue to the head bureaucrat here, 6x9, real quick. —RyaNayR (talkcontribs) 17:00, February 04, 2019 (UTC)
Sorry, but I think these questions are for an official forum (help desk). --Preciouslittle (talk) 04:17, February 6, 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the info. Sorry I never got/saw the notification email of your reply. I don't know anymore if it's even a problem to worry about. More like just odd, but it probably doesn't effect anything about how this wiki works so... I'll think on it. Just thanks again for all your help! —RyaNayR (talkcontribs) 22:26, March 02, 2019 (UTC)

Song credits, Man of Constant Sorrow

On this one: Emry Arthur:Man Of Constant Sorrow, the credits were a bit of a collaboration between Senvaikis and EchoSierra, if you look at the edit history. They both "outrank" me by quite a margin as editors, so I've adopted their convention for the many, many covers of this song. Does is it really make sense to do something different for credits on covers? Let me know what you think. Thanks. --Pastafazoo (talk) 17:37, February 23, 2019 (UTC)

First of all my opinion. Important or interesting is the information about the writer, composer, lyricist. Nothing more, but also nothing less than that. But

1. Too many sources (e.g. dog, mb) make the CreditBox confusing and it does not look good.
Three sources:
• The real name
• The real name (link from WikiaLyrics)
• The real name (link from Wikipedia)
are sufficient.
Too many sources destroy the design and you are connected to hundreds of different pages. Not good. Further information can be added via trivia or interpretations.
2. From my experience, the Slash character is very well suited to the separation of different authors as well as the alphabetical sorting. Further information should be outsourced - just keep it simple.--Preciouslittle (talk) 20:25, February 23, 2019 (UTC)

Quick question

Hey, do you happen to know why Pretenders is missing the 'The'? I mean, I realize that the LyricWiki doesn't quite follow standard grammar rules, but I figured that the name of the band is technically "The Pretenders". In fact for example, Steve Miller complained about people calling their songs just "Steve Miller" or even "Steve Miller Band" and said it should be "The Steve Miller Band". It isn't exactly the same thing, but it makes me wonder.

What do you think about it? -- RyaNayR 17:29, March 3, 2019 (UTC)

Quick reply - not really, perhaps of her first releases (have a look at the covers). But the "The Pretenders" is technically correct (see also "The Beatles").
The vast majority of releases appears to have "Pretenders" without "The", so the pagename would be correct. See also "Eagles". — 6×9 (Talk) 19:13, March 3, 2019 (UTC)
Guess it was up to the producers/record company and maybe artists, and all that.
