To replace


A recording which features in tracks from official albums by the recording artist should use the most common version of the titles from those tracks. For any other recording which has tracks, just use the most common variation of all the track titles. For a standalone recording, use the title given by the source.

Extra title information should be included in the recording title, just as it would be for tracks. The disambiguation comment should only be used after any extra title information has been included in the title, and recording names are still ambiguous.

See the title guidelines for general information about titles.
