Revision as of 11:26, 27 March 2009

Status: Attention.png This is a ProposedStyleGuideline and an OpenStyleIssue. It is not yet agreed on.

This style guide applies to tracks that are labeled as medleys or tracks that have multiple songs.

The general style should be "TrackTitle" if all of the songs in the medley are not original to the medley (i.e. if the same recording was released elsewhere) or "TrackTitle: SongTitle 1 / SongTitle 2 / ..." if at least one of the songs is original to the medley.

If there is no TrackTitle, it should be left out along with the ": ".

If there are no SongTitles, they should be left out along with the ": ". If the songs that make up the medley are listed somewhere other than the Track List and the recordings were released elsewhere, they should be linked with Advanced Relationships. If they're listed elsewhere and are original to the medley, they should be added to the appropriate annotation.

If the TrackTitle ends in "medley" it should be changed to "(medley)" unless the TrackTitle is "medley" in which case it shouldn't be changed. Also, if the word medley is obviously part of the TrackTitle it should not be converted to (medley).

If a SongTitle is repeated, it should be listed each time as if it weren't the same SongTitle.

Song numbers or letters should not be included.

You should use the Medley Relationship Type to link a medley to the individual songs, recorded elsewhere, that make it up if the songs are not original to the medley.

Example

    • Bar

should be "Foo (medley): Bar / Baz / Bar"

  • Medley
    • Bar

where the Quux recording has been released elsewhere, should be "Medley: Bar / Baz / Quux" with Advanced Relationships to the Quux recording that was used in the medley

  • This Is a Great Medley
    • Bar
    • Baz
    • Quux

should be "This Is a Great Medley: Bar / Baz / Quux"

    • Bar

should be "Bar / Quux"

  • Foo
    • Bar
    • Quux

where the recordings of Bar and Quux have been released elsewhere, should be "Foo" with Advanced Relationships to the Bar and Quux recordings that were used in the medley
