I've noticed that [[Special:Whatlinkshere/Template:Non-free stsa|your mashups]] tend to separate the two songs by stereo channels, with the minimum of editing necessary. What about mashups that require a greater degree of creative editing to "work"? Is it acceptable for these to be uploaded to the wiki and given the {{tl|non-free stsa}} template, provided that an adequate rationale is written? Or should they be preferentially uploaded elsewhere?

Revision as of 15:47, 24 March 2011

A couple random ones

The Rolling Stones, "Anybody Seen My Baby" vs. "Constant Craving" by k. d. lang (mentioned on the song's wikipedia page)

"Africa" by Toto vs. "Fireflies" by Owl City


Video game music

What is the policy for discussing video-game music on this article? I see a couple of examples where one song in the comparison is from a video game (Hip Tanaka - Chill). What about alleged cryptomnesia between two video-game songs? Do we need to create a separate article for that? Eighty5cacao 10:13, 19 August 2010 (MST)

Yeah, I heard a StarTropics bass line on level 1 of Zoop for Super NES too. I'm not sure exactly in which direction I want to take the page, but I don't want video game examples to overwhelm examples from the U.S. pop charts; I want it to be accessible to non-gamers. Perhaps a categorization scheme might become apparent later. --Tepples 16:44, 19 August 2010 (MST)
I may start an informal list in my userspace, but initially it will focus on examples that can be supported by online videos, and it will be a long time before it is comprehensive enough to be mainspaced. Eighty5cacao 22:45, 20 August 2010 (MST)

When to include the month

To answer a question brought up in an edit summary: Ordinarily, only the year of a song's first publication is needed. It is helpful to add the month if the songs were first published in the same year or successive years (e.g. 2001 vs. 2002) to establish how likely it is that the writer of one song had heard the other. --Tepples 12:36, 24 August 2010 (MST)

Okay, thank you. I figured that out a few minutes after my edit... Eighty5cacao 15:41, 24 August 2010 (MST)

On second thought

Journey - Don't Stop Believin' vs. Hosanna! Music - Blessed Be the Lord (1992) when I went back to it, they weren't as similar as I thought, but I might be able to stretch it if I get time to make a juxtaposition. --Tepples 10:35, 5 September 2010 (MST)

This one's a stretch too: He's So Fine vs. My Sweet Lord vs. Grand Funk Railroad - Bad Time vs. The Four Seasons - Let's Hang On! --Tepples 17:21, 19 September 2010 (MST)

YT links that are not demos

Discussion moved to User talk:Eighty5cacao/Songs that sound alike (video games)#YT links that are not demos --Eighty5cacao 17:32, 3 October 2010 (MST)

That one's bogus

"Layla" and "Two Tickets to Paradise"? That one's bogus. -- Jim Yerrick 13:38, 25 December 2010 (MST)

Can you explain the problem in more detail so that Tepples can reevaluate this / provide any necessary supporting references? Eighty5cacao 16:47, 25 December 2010 (MST)

Creativity allowable in mashups

This could also have been posted to Template talk:Non-free stsa but I wasn't sure
I've noticed that your mashups tend to separate the two songs by stereo channels, with the minimum of editing necessary. What about mashups that require a greater degree of creative editing to adequately demonstrate the similarity? Is it acceptable for these to be uploaded to the wiki and given the {{non-free stsa}} template, provided that an adequate rationale is written? Or should they be preferentially uploaded elsewhere? (For examples of greater creativity, see certain examples which are currently linked on the STSA pages.) Does the wording of {{non-free stsa}} need to be adjusted?
