If you wanna call this a blog post. It's gonna be short though. For one it's my first and I only have one short topic. I recently transcribed all the lyrics for MercyMe's Pleased to Meet You album. And I've also transcribed The Lads band's first album, P.I.R.A.W. So you should go check them out. (If you're intreseted.) I checked online for the LONGEST time and couldn't find any lyrics for the Pleased to Meet You album besides Just Like Your Father. So, therefore I decided to transcribe myself. It may only be about 95% accurate, but I did the best I could. The lyrics shown on this site and NewReleaseToday aren't simplified, meaning showing the chorus only once, etc. It's very detailed, with all the yeaas and ooohhs and all the backing vocals. Same …Read more >

Hello Wiki! Hello Blog! Hello community!
I just started out here. I will add some missing lyrics and help to correct others that I have access to.
But I also want to contribute my initial impression when trying to register and trying to add lyrics to this wiki. I use Linux, my desktop is KDE (or, more accurately, Plasma Desktop). KDE provides a nice browser called Konqueror. With Google adding more and more CAPTCHA stuff in the "I am not a robot" kind of protection – from spam or automated edits? – I hit a wall. Konqueror is not a supported browser by Google CAPTCHA. Not giving up so easily I had to use Firefox, which worked. I don't know about this protection stuff, but isn't it possible to make the CAPTCHA compatible with Konqueror? After …Read more >
Due to recent events I'm not able to finish the Eurovision Project.
So far, I've added/checked the ESC template to/on 1304 out of 1479 song pages, attributed the songs to albums where possible, added alternate language versions if available and added the wikipedia links and youtube videos.
There is still a lot of work to be done (double checking all ESC pages, reworking the main Eurovision Song Contest page etc.), so I hope that someone is going to finish what has been started.
I've spent a lot of time around here during last couple of months (I had to stay home a lot due to an injury and lw helped me pass the time...) but I kinda miss the spirit that usually makes a wiki great.
In the words of Eurovision: Adieu, Voorgoed voorbij, Time to Say …Read more >
Obviously there has been a change of policy and the Instrumental template is no longer to be used.Read more >
Currently live versions of songs should be directed to the original version of the song unless there is a substantial difference in the lyrics (See Help:Contents/Editing/Formatting/Songs#Live_Versions). As per 6_times_9 (See comments on blog User_blog:Thineshire/"Remixed"_Template?) we should read this rule to also include remixes.
This means "If, and only if, the lyrics are sufficiently different (more than just a few single words changed and/or lines repeated or omitted), they should get a separate song page".
I would like to get your input on this policy by asking for you to vote in the poll below. Comments are also welcome.
When you vote, please consider the following: Synchronized lyrics; Clean vs. Explicit lyrics; Certifying a remix song whe…Read more >
I'm currently working on completing the Magic Dance discography, and I've hit a bit of a bump, as there are hardly any lyrics anywhere else that I can use, so I have to simply try writing them by ear. Of course, what I've done so far isn't perfect, as my ears aren't perfect. I'm looking for one or more people with very good ears to help me out here. Any and all help, even including editing my own contributions is greatly appreciated.Read more >
Hopefully this is the right way to ask this...
Is there any particular reason we do not have a template for tracks that have been remixed? We have cover/covered, sample/sampled, and parody/parodied, but only the remixes get a template rather than the original as well. Even aside from complementary reasons, I think it'd be a nice way for fans of a certain song to potentially discover new artists by getting their feet wet with a reimagining of something they already like.Read more >
Should we have a template similar to Template:Cv for reprise versions of songs, e.g. the new version of Sabaton's "7734" on Heroes? --StarSword (talk) 18:34, May 13, 2017 (UTC)Read more >
