Carlos Santana:Mudbone

This song is an instrumental. Unfortunately, I'm not able to make changes to this page: Sorry, but the source can not be viewed on this page due to licensing requirements. Could you pls correct this?

While on the Santana page I noticed that it contains both the records of Carlos Santana and the Santana group. IMO it would be better to have separate pages, as do Discogs, Musicbrainz, Allmusic, RateYourMusic , etc. Another job for your buddy Lwt?--Vssm2004 (talk) 16:46, January 2, 2019 (UTC)

  • See the same issue above
  • Frankly, I'm not sure it's really a good idea - to open one more Pandora's box (Nick Cave, Robert Cray, Robert Plant etc etc...). That's not a kind of task, simply readdressable to the bot, without any preliminary discussion(s). --Senvaikis (talk) 13:27, January 3, 2019 (UTC)
Fair enough, I see your point. Thanks for correcting the Mudbone 'lyrics'--Vssm2004 (talk) 23:01, January 3, 2019 (UTC)


Gray area, perhaps

I'm currently about to create a song page for this song - [1] In the 60's, the artist performed and recorded it a Newport as We Want Our Freedom Now. From the 70's, it's available from Amazon as mp3 under the title Bridging the Gap. And, on LW, in the 80s it's here: Joan Baez:Live Europe '83 (Children Of The Eighties) (1983). No question the cover art says The Land of a Thousand Dances. I'm OK (I'm pretty sure) with that page name. My questions - does this really qualify as a cover of the R&B/Soul classic? Is it maybe a medley? Unfortunately, the name of the traditional part seems to be AWOL, so it would be a one-legged medley. Finally, should writer = traditional, Chris Kenner? Perhaps if I listened to more hip hop or songs containing a lot of sampling I'd be better prepared. Thanks--Pastafazoo (talk) 07:13, January 14, 2019 (UTC)

I'd like to meet your expectations, but let me better stay honest - I don't think that being an admin automatically makes me an universal expert in all the areas. So, if someone else asked for my opinion, my best advise would be to... ask your opinion about this question better :)

Album Art

What was wrong with the Yuppicide - Fear Love photo? BuffaloBillsFan (talk) 12:25, January 15, 2019 (UTC)

You'd easily find an answer to your question in LW documentation. Here's a short list of some mandatory requirements for album art images:
  • the {{AlbumCover}} template should be used in the Summary field of the uploaded image
  • image should not be bigger than 500×500 px or 150 KB
  • you should avoid uploading album art images, related to unexisting (or empty) albums - sooner or later they'd be deleted anyways
At the same ocasion try to find some spare time for reading remaining docs to find other usefull info and avoid such mistakes as creating empty albums or including redlinks into OS section.

Request for a page move, I think

About this item: Bob Dylan:Licence To Kill. I've looked at cover art, LP hubs, Amazon, iTunes, MusicBrainz, Discogs, and nowhere have I seen this song spelled Licence. It's been spelled this way since its creation on LW, but I don't see how that means it should stay this way. Any opinion? Thanks--Pastafazoo (talk) 07:09, January 25, 2019 (UTC)

Cassandra Wilson song?

The album Cassandra Wilson:Another Country (2012) contains two instrumental guitar solos by Fabrizio Sotti (Deep Blue and Letting You Go). Is it correct that they are attributed to Cassandra Wilson?--Vssm2004 (talk) 19:37, January 30, 2019 (UTC)

I suspect that you know already the answer: no, it's not correct.
But if you asked me about the necessity of renaming both mentioned tracks, I wouldn't be as categoric, depending on your readiness to do some additional job... So, if you are ready to create a page for Fabrizio Sotti, create some album pages for him, find some lyrics to his songs etc, then - go ahead; otherwise - better refrain from needless increasing of Category:Homeless Songpage.

regards, --Senvaikis (talk) 21:42, February 2, 2019 (UTC)

Hey, sure thing. Deal. I always try to provide as much information as possible. You know, there's still some songs out there that are either missing the lyrics or are almost non-existent to virtually any music identification websites/programs. Without the lyrics being provided, I often am left with no choice but to listen as closely and carefully as possible. No matter how hard I listen, this sometimes doesn't always work, as some of the words can be distorted, muffled, etc. My hearing is fine, I just have to adjust equalizer settings to decipher words better. Nobody said it was gonna be an easy task. But anyways, thanks for the heads up. I will remember to create a page for an artist for every lyricless song I come across. 77Pacer (talk) 21:52, February 2, 2019 (UTC)

Bob Dylan, 30th Anniversary Concert

I'm working on adding the 2014 Deluxe release to this item: Bob Dylan - The 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration (1993). I've done this before with other albums, but there's a couple of technicalities I'd like your recommendations on.

First, on the 1993 release, there was one introduction by Kris Kristofferson. On the 2014 version, there are 2. iTunes and Amazon both call the one from the 1993 release "Show Introduction", which it was. The second one on the 2014 release is an introduction of Johnny Cash, which doesn't exist (yet) on WP. It's called Introduction on iTunes & Amazon. My plan is to rename the current Introduction by Kris Kristofferson "Show Introduction", and create a new song page for the Johnny Cash introduction - and title it Introduction. But will this lead to a redirect mess? I still want "Introduction" by Kris Kristofferson on the 1993 release to show the right words. Does it make sense for the 1993 version to be Kris Kristofferson:Show Introduction|Introduction? So you see the right lyrics, and it's not shown in the track list for 1993 as Show Introduction.

Second, the 2014 release has 2 versions of Don't Think Twice, It's Alright by Eric Clapton. The bonus version is called (Rehearsal) on iTunes, Amazon and WP. If the lyrics were identical, I wouldn't touch it but there are some differences. Is it acceptable to create a song titled Don't Twice, It's Alright (Rehearsal)? I suspect not - no such thing as Bob Dylan's (Rehearsal). Or just live with the fact it's two recordings by the same artist of the same song, and from what I've seen on LW, we usually settle on one set of lyrics when artists record a song multiple times. I know there's an exception for a notably different live version, but these are both live. Please excuse the length of this. Thanks for your patience.--Pastafazoo (talk) 05:04, February 6, 2019 (UTC)

  1. Considering the fact that both introductions belong to different introducers, there's no especial need in their titles "disambiguation", i.e. both might be titled as "Introduction", but I like your "disambiguated" version more - it emphasizes the essential difference between both introductions (KK introduced the entire show, while JC - just one song. And I see no danger of "redir mess" here.
  2. First of all let us make sure that we are talking about the same song versions, 'cause the versions I've listened to (Spotify 16 (06:28) & Spotify 16 (06:10)) did not seem essentially different to me. So, if I'm not missing smth here, there's no need to create a separate pages for a song versions with such insignificant differences in the lyrics; otherwise let me know your reasonings/opinion
regards,--Senvaikis (talk) 21:13, February 6, 2019 (UTC)
I agree with you on the 2 song versions - but there are 3 introductions on the album. KK introduced the whole show (track 3), then at track 8, KK introduced JC and his wife. Finally, at track 16 JC introduces his daughter, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Shawn Colvin. My quandary throughout has been what to do about KK's 2 separate introductions, with the first one being called "Introduction" on the 1993 release, but "Show Introduction" in 2014. 2 commpletely separate intros by KK. Thanks for your input. I will not worry about Don't Think Twice.. I've noticed that both Spotify and Amazon call KK's first intro Show Introduction by KK, and the second Introduction by KK--Pastafazoo (talk) 22:18, February 6, 2019 (UTC)
Oops, I've missed other KK's intro, but on the other hand - actually that doesn't matter much imo. So, what's wrong in Sp & amz "approach"? Quite reasonable choice, for my taste... :) --Senvaikis (talk) 22:39, February 6, 2019 (UTC)
Drat - I just discovered this: [2], and old redirect, which dumps you into the current (1993) Introduction. Am I not correct in thinking this "song" title is taken? I was just about to rename the first Introduction to "Show Introducion", and use what amz Sp have done for the others, but my head is swimming now. Any ideas? Thanks.--Pastafazoo (talk) 04:12, February 7, 2019 (UTC)

Smokin' Joe Kubek

Before I mess this up, I think I better ask first. Here's the problem: Smokin' Joe Kubek recorded about 20 albums, all but one with Bnois King. So if you search for him on LW, you are redirected to Smokin' Joe Kubek & Bnois King, which makes kind of sense. However, I'm reluctant to post the one exception AllMusic i Let the Right Hand Go... under Kubek/King, since it is a Kubek solo album (with Doyle Bramhall Sr. on seven of the nine tracks).

My solution would be to undo the redirection, create an artist page for Smokin' Joe Kubek with this album and point in the artist info to Kubek/King. Would you agree?--Vssm2004 (talk) 17:00, February 9, 2019 (UTC)

Actually either solution in such situation is more or less just some kind of compromise imo. So, if page Smokin' Joe Kubek & Bnois King weren't created yet, I'd possibly thought about one single page, dedicated to all SJK's releases (with according aliases). But now I'm not sure if (re)redirect (SJK&BK => SJK) would be a good idea...
In other words, I tend to agree with your suggestion - thanks for the great job, --Senvaikis (talk) 19:53, February 9, 2019 (UTC)


Two studio releases, same song

I've been trying to decide how to best handle this: Joan Baez:The Tramp On The Street. The version from Joan Baez/5 contains an extra, unique verse that is completely absent from the David's Album release. It's repeated twice - between verses 1&3 of the David's Album release, and after the last verse seen on David's Album. Would it be easier for all LW users who are tagging songs to be able to delete the 2 "extra" verses if they have the short version, and keep them if they have the Joan Baez/5 release, as opposed to those who have Joan Baez/5 needing to go hunt for or transcribe what's currently missing here? Thanks--Pastafazoo (talk) 17:15, February 12, 2019 (UTC)

I'm not sure I understood your question correctly - hardly you'll know something new, if I just repeat that according to LWPN, songs with essentially different lyrics may be disambiguated by additional notation, appended to the song title. Usual/(the best) practice is to leave the default title to the first recorded version, but there's no strict policy on that; so exceptions are possible (f.e., when original version is demo or the later version is more known/famous).
So, if the second (longer) version of this song was recorded in 2002 and has essentially different lyrics, compared to 1969 version, then it may be titled as "The Tramp On The Street (2002 Version)", or "The Tramp On The Street (Long Version)" etc.
Let me know if your question was little (or completely) different :) --Senvaikis (talk) 19:58, February 12, 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for your reply. As far as I know, the long version was recorded during the sessions for Joan Baez/5 (1964), but weren't released. That's what Allmusic says, apparently based on liner notes. So earlier recording, (much) later release. I did not know that there was any provision on LW for doing this with a studio cut - I once ran into a ****storm when I tried to put up corrected lyrics for the tracks on The Beatles Let It Be (Naked). As in Get Back (Naked). I've been afraid to go near such a concept since. I'll think I may go with (Long Version), since there's the recording/ release issue. Hope doing this won't ignite another storm.--Pastafazoo (talk) 00:53, February 13, 2019 (UTC)

Japanese artist and japanese album

Hello. Can you change the name of 串田アキラ (Akira Kushida) to Akira Kushida? In many soundtracks his name appear in japanese but he released some albums and the name Akira Kushida was used. I think it's the best solution. Also I'd like to know if there's a way to add a infobox (similar to credits) in a album page. For example here: 仮面ライダーBlack ヒット曲集 (1988) I wanna add a text that this is a soundtrack of Kamen Rider Black, so users can easy find using the search. Thank you. Songsbr (talk) 02:43, February 13, 2019 (UTC)

Sorry, Sb, but I'm not sure I've got enough arguments/info for such renaming, 'cause info on most of our external sites (mb. iT, dog etc) rather inclines me to quite different solution - move to "串田アキラ". So, it would be nice if you could share some additional info in favor of your proposal. Otherwise I'd like to hear more opinions from other experts of Japanese, anime and tokusatsu (as you know, I do not belong to such experts, to put it mildly). cheers, --Senvaikis (talk) 12:42, February 13, 2019 (UTC)
Yes, you are correct. He is known as 串田アキラ. I only thought it was better Akira because at some point he used the name 串田 晃 and maybe this would cause confusion. But yes you are correct. If you want to change to 串田アキラ I'm agree. Thank you. Songsbr (talk) 16:27, February 13, 2019 (UTC)

Regarding Man of Constant Sorrow, WP's section on origin & authorship is sort of all over the place - [3]. EchoSierra put a paragraph on my talk page strongly advocating Richard Burnett, but even Burnett was unsure in later life of his authorship.

Sung vs. printed lyrics

Some days ago I posted the lyrics for the latest Tedeschi/Trucks album "as sung". Today, a "FANDOM" user (94.62.97.254) changed every one of them to the printed lyrics. Now, I don't want to get into an editing war with this user, who obviously is not aware of LW policies. It probably won't make any difference to mark the songs as bronze, silver or gold, since this users obviously hasn't read the help files and wouldn't know what this means.

Is there any way to notify "FANDOM" users (through a pop-up or whatever) of LW policies before they can change the posted lyrics? Otherwise I don't know why I even bother to carefully listen to the songs to get the lyrics right.--Vssm2004 (talk) 18:05, February 20, 2019 (UTC)

Unfortunately, I can't suggest you any general, simple and automatical way to prevent undesirable edits by anonymous users. There's only one scenario, currently common for all (anonymous & registered) users, afaik:
  1. if edit goes in violation of LW policy - revert it, providing a necessary reasoning in edit summary
  2. discuss the issue with editor(s), if required
  3. ask for admin help if above steps don't work (edit wars etc)
Yes, I agree- that's not a simplest way, and sometimes it may be even tedious, but now I just can't offer you nothing smarter - let me know if you got some bright idea.
Regarding all the mentioned songs from the Signs, - I've changed slightly their protection level, blocking edits by new & anonymous users (not quite a legitimate solution, to be honest... ;))
regards,--Senvaikis (talk) 13:22, February 21, 2019 (UTC)

Lyrics certification

Hey there,

I just have a quick question: how can lyrics be certified? What exactly does it mean? ―User:RyaNayR (talk) (contribs) 18:34, March 6, 2019 (UTC)

  • how: see the documentation of {{Cert}}
  • meaning: certifying is a part of LW page ranking system (see docs for more details). It applies only to song pages and is actually the last obligatory condition, necessary for assigning the Gold star to the song page (i.e., any Silver song may be ranked Gold only after its certification)
hth, --Senvaikis (talk) 19:31, March 6, 2019 (UTC)

What if a song have the same title but different lyrics?

This song Children_Of_Bodom:Knuckleduster just got a new version, with the same title but the lyrics are completely different, how to proceed to add the new one? title should be Knuckleduster ("Album title" version) or something like that?

Alluka the ripper (talk) 19:54, March 7, 2019 (UTC) Alluka the ripper

Sure, you may use the album title or release date as additional notation, like "Knuckleduster (Hexed Version)" or just "Knuckleduster (2019)". Just looking at almost identical durations (~3:30), reported by mb & dog, I'm not sure if these lyrics are really "completely different"... --Senvaikis (talk) 21:59, March 7, 2019 (UTC)

Recent Bananarama edit

I meant to ask sooner, but I'm wondering why the entire "compilations and soundtracks" section was erased. I've checked other band's sections, and their pages still have their "compilations and soundtracks" parts. Was it an over-delete, or is there something happening with that section for the whole site, or some other reason? Just wondering, not a huge biggie, but I figured I'd ask. Itsjrd1964 (talk) 08:21, March 9, 2019 (UTC)

No, it wasn't a result of any over-action or some site-wide changes. Take a look at LW docs to find this "other reason": "...songs do not need to be listed here (SoCaS) if they also appeared on a compilation or other album by the artist and are therefore listed elsewhere on the Artist page."
At the same ocasion - some additional notes:
  • All items in sections like SoCaS (as well as Singles, Live and Unreleased Songs etc) should contain a link to release page, if such page exists @LW, or any available external link (to mb, dog, iT, amz, amg, sp, yt, ma, pa etc) otherwise. All songs without such link should be moved into "Other Songs" section.
  • Generally template {{feat}} should not be used for members of the band. So, speaking in LW terms, song Do They Know It's Christmas? was performed by Band Aid, and artists of Bananarama were just a part (members) of this supergroup. Ergo, template {{feat}} was misused here, ergo - this song should be removed from Bananarama page at all.
  • Template {{feat}}, used with param "t=with" means a collaboration, not featuring; thus you should either rename the song according to pagenaming policy in case of collab or just remove parameter "t=with" otherwise.

Song for deletion... maybe

Heya,

This song has never been officially released, but it was played live in a radio once and the bootlegged recording has been circulating in the internet since. The band acknowledged this in their website's Q&A section, which was also printed as a physical book. So, technically, there is "reliable evidence" for this song's existence, but probably not the type you are looking for. So, shall I add a request for deletion on that page? -- JinHansson (talk) 21:36, March 11, 2019 (UTC)

Such song still may be listed in the section "Live and Unreleased", but on one condition - this "reliable evidence" must be confirmed by providing at least one external link to any reliable external source (see here f.e.).
Should notice that you may easily find a lot of violations of this requirement (see 1 or 2), but usually it is not considered a "deadly sin"... ;) -hth, --Senvaikis (talk) 22:55, March 11, 2019 (UTC)

Hello

Hi, I'm Raichu from Vocaloid Lyrics Wiki. I have lyrics and translations for some Japanese songs that don't fit in that wiki (since they're not Vocaloid songs) and I was wondering I can post them here. Is there a template I could use? Or should I copy and edit the contents of a similar page? Anything I should know before adding a page? ElectricRaichu (talk) 07:58, March 14, 2019 (UTC)

Hi, ElectricRaichu,
welcome to LW, and yes, you can - moreover - we highly appreciate any help from Japanese-speaking editors.
Regarding mentioned template: you will not find any standalone template(s) for this task, 'cause all new artist/album/song page prefill engine is built-in into page-type sensitive "auto-new-page" template, activated on a new page opening (or by a click on the (red)link to such non-existing-yet page).
Hope you don't expect me to provide a full description of editing process @LW ;) - in any case, I'd recommend starting by studies of our documentation. It's far from being perfect, thus feel free to ask for a help if you have any questions, - I'll always be glad to help :)

TAILWIND by TrySail

I had a go at adding TAILWIND to the TrySail page and as an album page. Can you or someone please check them and let me know how I did? I had to enter the list of songs in both pages, is that right?

Hi, ElectricRaichu,
I've made some corrections for you, - here are some short comments:
  • tracklists: Yes, you are right - album tracklists should be entered on both (artist & album) pages.
  • translations: take a look at lw:docs and the sample I've made for you.
  • redundancy: don't be surprised by vanished singles - take a look at lw:docs for details
hth, and feel free to ask if you have more questions, - cheers --Senvaikis (talk) 13:51, March 20, 2019 (UTC)
P.S. Btw, I'm not sure about two tracks (4 & 7) of the album TAILWIND (2017) - both wp and ITunes icon It point to HoneyWorks Wikipedia16 as the (co-?)performer of these tracks. You may want to recheck this info and rename these tracks if required.

I added pages for romaji and english for BraveSail but they're not linked from the main page. I don't know what I did wrong. I'm afraid the learning curve is pretty steep. Please check my Contributions to see what I did, maybe you can explain what steps I did wrong and how to fix it.

It would also be nice to be credited with the translation. On Vocaloid Lyrics Wiki, we always attribute the translator, although actually it's mainly to ensure that it's someone known to be reliable.

HoneyWorks wrote two of the songs on the album. The Wikipedia article lists the group as the composers and lyricists of BraveSail and Senpai, while TrySail did the vocals. I don't think HoneyWorks have vocalists in their group. They either use Vocaloids or get Chiho or other vocalists to sing for them (or both).

ElectricRaichu (talk) 02:49, March 26, 2019 (UTC)

done Fixed now. The reason was simple - just both pages with translations have been mistitled by accidental appending a word "Lyrics" at the end (through copy-paste, I suspect).
You may essentially simplify your job and at the same time avoid such mistakes by using another sequence of your job:
  1. start from adding a template {{TranslatedSong}} to the original song page - this template creates the red links to all translation pages.
  2. Use (click) these links for creating required translation pages (each with autogenerated title and auto-prefilled initial content) - easy and without any typos :)

Portuguese headlines

Maybe that it wasn't typo, but I'm convinced that what I did was totaly correct and your version is not correct. --Ignor-the-ant (talk) 18:47, March 24, 2019 (UTC)

You aren't a newbie @LW, thus I hope you should know that link text after the pipe (as well as sh.song or ah.album) should adhere to the national capitalization rules, and LW stics to MB style guidelines.
Now take a look at Kingnee - Musicbrainz Portuguese language guidelines and samples at wp:pt or at Kingnee - Musicbrainz mb.
If you disagree with these rules, - feel free to open a discussion @CP, but for a while - try to refrain from undiscussed revertions, based just on your convictions.

Bad Accents

hi, why did you delete my lyrics — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Viper404 (talkcontribs).

"Bad accents in pagetitle" (套路 and 奴隸) - one of standard reasons for deletion. --Senvaikis (talk) 07:31, March 27, 2019 (UTC)

Slag vs proper spelling in lyrics

Hey, I have a quick question: which is technically more correct to use in lyrics — the way a word sounds, as a "slanged" word such as feelin', or the proper spelling, feeling?


LW Policy / preferences for traditional songs

Is there a generally preferred way to handle first recordings of traditional songs and subsequent recordings by other artists of the song? Example - Burl Ives' Riddle Song. Every source I've seen says his recording was first, but the song may be five or six-hundred years old, in some form. I edited his version of the song as follows: Burl Ives:Riddle Song, with subsequent recordings as covered by.... In the same vein, House of the Rising Sun is well documented as being first recorded by Clarence Ashley (with Gwen Foster) in 1933. I've listened to their version, and one verse of Bob Dylan's 1962 version is almost identical. A considerable list of latter recordings exist for it, of course. Let me know what you think, and if I did the wrong thing for Riddle Song, I can undo it quickly. Many thanks in advance.--Pastafazoo (talk) 03:19, March 28, 2019 (UTC)
