Reports of artists and songs that need correction

 
  • Reports of artists and songs that need correction

    This thread is for reporting things that need correction but are currently left untouched by the auto-correcter.

    Go crazy with suggesting even the silliest of misspellings that need to be merged with the correct version of the song/artist.

    I will add it all to our list of things that need correction, and then it's up to ya'll to vote so that it will be removed again!

    "[album artist=Eric Johnson]Venus Isle[/album]" by [artist]Eric Johnson[/album]

    01 - Venus Isle
    02 - Battle We Have Won
    03 - All About You
    04 - S.R.V
    05 - Lonely in the Night
    08 - Song for Lynette
    09 - When the Sun Meets the Sky
    10 - Pavilion
    11 - Venus Reprise

    The auto-corrector does not recognise these tracks and it does not remove the track number from them.

    Keep up the great job!

    Between the conception
    And the creation
    Between the emotion
    And the response
    Falls the Shadow

    Fake Metallica songs:

    Hunger should redirect to Hunger by Eternal Decision.

    Fuck like a beaver should redirect to Little Pig by Jug. <-- Funny thing is, for years I never knew who this track was actually by until I saw the redirect on Last.fm the other month, but then the redirect got undone!

    There's probably a lot more floating around too! Every time a new Metallica album is in the works, someone takes some other band's music and claims they've got a leak of the album, or they've got "ultra rare trax". The upside is that the band Eternal Decision has probably sold dozens of CDs because of it.

    Track - wrong artist (several versions of an old internet hoax, should all point to the same track):
    Sonar Blow Job
    Sonar Blow Job
    sonar blow job
    Sonar Blow Job
    Sonar Blow Job (feat. Kraftwerk)
    Sonar Blow Job (currently redirected to another bad version)
    Should ALL redirect to > Kraftwelt - Sonar Blow Job

    Album - wrong artist (nothing to do with Audrey):
    Audrey > Audrey

    Artist and track name inversed:
    God lives underwater > Tortoise

    Misspelled artist:
    Baikonour > Baïkonour
    NIИ > Nine Inch Nails

    Wrong/misspelled track name:

    Artist: Cornelius:
    Monkey > Magoo Opening
    Chapter 8 -Seashore and Horizon > Chapter 8 - Seashore and Horizon
    Seashore And Horizon > Chapter 8 - Seashore and Horizon

    Artist: Baïkonour:
    Summer Grass/Winter Worm > Summer Grass / Winter Worm
    Look...Wa! > Look... Wa!
    Proto-Coeur > Proto-cœur (using the "œ" character... which is the correct spelling of the word "Cœur" [heart] in French. Actually C should be uppercase.. how do I do that without last.fm changing it back?)
    Proto - Coeur > Proto-cœur (also here, œ character. Again, C should be uppercase)

    Artist: Alphawezen:
    El Nino > El Niño
    Film3 > Film3 (Brigitte Bardot)
    doux reves > Doux Rêves

    Artist: Röyksopp:
    Royksopp Forever > Röyksopp Forever

    Btw how do you get last.fm to use correct upper/lowercase? Even in the forum post if you type it correctly, it changes it to whatever it thinks when you submit....




  • About case corrections, you have to complain to Last.fm staff in some thread at the forum and wait for them to fix it.

    Hi, new member here. Neutral Milk Hotel songs are a mess because there are many ways to write them (if you don't know the exact Musicbrainz way), for example on bootlegs. Anyway, now I'm focusing on songs from In the Aeroplane over the Sea. There are more, btw, these are just a sampling! This is REALLY long.

    Track 1: These should redirect to The King of Carrot Flowers, Part One (which has wrong case but I haven't yet bothered with the thread):
    *King of Carrot Flowers Part 1
    *The King of Carrot Flowers Pt. One
    *King of Carrot Flowers, Pt 1

    *The King of Carrot flowers pt 1
    *The King Of Carrot Flowers (Part 1)
    *king of carrot flowers, pt. one

    Track 2: Correct is The King of Carrot Flowers, Parts Two & Three
    *The King of Carrot Flowers Pts. Two & Three

    Pets is not a track by Jane's Addiction, but rather by Perry Farrell's later band Porno For Pyros:

    Lick the Pavement has been floating around the Internet as a Placebo song, while it is actually a Garbage track:

    Then, I did the same for Tool, limited to their top 100 scrobbled tracks over the last 6 months:

    I'm not sure whether Knife Prty or Knife Party is correct, my copy of White Pony lists the track as "Knife Prty", but on other editions it seems to be "Knife Party"...

    Finally, for now, Led Zeppelin's top 100 or so:

    Seems that musicbrainz also can't decide: with / without
    however the first one (with) seems to be the 'proper' album, the second one is a compilation... so I'd probably go with apostrophe. just my unqualified opinion ;)

    the apostrophe looks weird and is technically wrong, i know (the prescribed version, i mean), but it's what discogs (here) and musicbrainz (here) both agree on (see track #11). short of other proof, i've based it on those refs.


    @luzian: thks for the vote of confidence ;)

    thks for the ref, and apologies - i had no access to definitive evidence at the time. the original soundtrack entry on musicbrainz does not include it. i believe my sole source was this wikipedia entry, which was the closest match from this disambiguation page.

    let's disregard it for now then (meaning no redirects either way for the time being).
