If "[[User:Eighty5cacao/Songs that sound alike (video games)|a separate video for each song is not acceptable]]" as a demo, then where do we put YouTube links that don't qualify as demos? I guess those could go in the First and Second boxes. Or do you specifically object to providing such links? [[User:Eighty5cacao|Eighty5cacao]] 10:40, 30 September 2010 (MST)

:As the link suggested, this question is really more about [[User:Eighty5cacao/Songs that sound alike (video games)]] than this article. I can see how there might not be adequate fair-use justification for providing links to videos of individual songs, but readers are likely to be less familiar with most video-game music than with most of the music in this article.

Revision as of 02:14, 1 October 2010

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

If "a separate video for each song is not acceptable" as a demo, then where do we put YouTube links that don't qualify as demos? I guess those could go in the First and Second boxes. Or do you specifically object to providing such links? Eighty5cacao 10:40, 30 September 2010 (MST)
