Is it possible to enable this extension? I couldn't find another way of getting the artist name from the album page name (which would make this template behave more like the album link and be much more usefull). --Attendant 11:54, 24 September 2006 (PDT)

It isn't too much work to fill out the artist, so I've rewritten it. --MindlessXD 19:58, 25 December 2006 (PST)

Now that the site is using the MusicBrainz Capitalization rules, does this "Special Case" still stand? From what I recall, the whole problem was "Band Name Is Cool:They Sing A Very Cool Song" was the proper "Page location" for that band:track (but, on the album page, the every-first-character-capitalized routine looked tacky :P), and so the DisplayTitle parameter was only used to change the appearance on the album page(s).

This still applies to special cases, such as when the artist or title contain special characters that can't be placed as part of the title (but should be displayed correctly nevertheless). --Attendant 22:41, 10 April 2007 (PDT)

Secondly, the info parameter, this could be used for (bonus track) and other such "notes"? Maybe it would be good to put up some examples of proper info values. --ahoier 22:11, 10 April 2007 (PDT)

Yes, that's basically it's purpose. A few examples wouldn't hurt... all it takes is the will to write them. --Attendant 22:41, 10 April 2007 (PDT)

Cover Songs

Is it okay to use the "info" field to give the original artist (lyricist). for example take the song "conquest" on icky thump (2007) of the white stripes. This Song was written by Corky Robbins, so I put his name in the Info field.

Or are there other ways to mark a Cover-Song.

Template:Cover of is what you're looking for. --MindlessXD 16:25, 25 July 2007 (PDT)
Nevertheless i think it's usefull to put "by [artist of original song]" into the inform-field of the Song link, so that it is apparent on an album page wich song is a cover song. --Knufaz 23:42, 25 July 2007 (PDT)
Sometimes I think we just dig ourselves a deeper hole, per se :) lol. Can't we just keep it simple, and to the point, more emphasis on "lyrics" and less on credits and other notations? :) Between allmusic, amazon, musicbrainz, discogs; they got that stuff "on the ball" per se ;) --ahoier 08:05, 26 July 2007 (PDT)
