To replace http://wiki.musicbrainz.org/Style/Recording#Title:
 
 
 
==Title==
 
The recording title should generally be based on the titles of tracks using that recording.
 
 
 
If the recording has tracks from official albums, choose the most common title from official tracks as the basis for the recording title. Otherwise, choose the most common track title. For standalone recordings, the title should be based on the title given by the original source.
 
 
 
Any [[Style/Titles/Extra_title_information|extra title information]] in the chosen title should be kept with the recording. ETI which is the name of a specific version of the song (e.g. a named remix, mix or edit), should be included in the recording title, but all other ETI should be moved to the disambiguation comment of the recording.
 
 
 
See the [[Style/Titles|title guidelines]] for general information about titles.
 
 
 
===Examples===
 
*The majority of the official tracks using the recording [[recording:9aa77fa3-1a7d-4ff9-a5ce-8c3dc072fa52|…Baby One More Time]] are called "…Baby One More Time", so the recording title should be "…Baby One More Time" and not "Baby One More Time" or "…Baby One More Time (radio version)".
 
*The recording [[recording:d0a7f90b-9d4f-4737-80ff-1f87704999f4|Mailman, Bring Me More Blues]] is actually the song "Mailman, Bring Me No More Blues", but because there is only one track using, the recording the title of this track should be used as the recording title.
