Please give complete information when listing songs

#1 Post by JesseMiner » Sat Aug 16, 2003 1:45 am

I've had several requests for DJs to be more specific when they list songs, giving the artist and album name along with the song title. Too often there are many different recordings of a particular song by a particular artist. If you want to be really helpful, give a link to the album at allmusic.com or some other online music resource.

Example: Song Title - Artist ([url=#]Album Title[/url])

or something along those lines.

I know this is additional work, but it would be quite helpful as a reference point for those who are interesting in checking out the songs for themselves.

Thanks.

Jesse

also: some album names are common, especially when it's the name of a popular song by the artist. try to list label info too, sometimes. (also when it's a re-release, like verve master edition, or columbia legacy instead of columbia jazz masterpieces)
