albums released - alphabetical order[edit]

Dear 60s and 70s music fans out there in wikiland (or is that wikispace?)

For want of an easier way of doing things, and following a question raised on another talk page, I am in the process of putting the albums released sections of the 60s and 70s in music pages into alphabetical order.

Whilst I realise this may not be the best or most popular way of listing stuff, I reached the conclusion that other than going directly to an artist's article page, it was probably the most efficient/effective way to find that album that we want to check up on and compare it to its contemporaries. By way of example, if we were to put the following album in artist name order:

  • Diana Ross Presents the Jackson 5 - Jackson 5

we would [probably] have to include it twice on the same list: once under each of the named artists, whereas if we list it alphabetically there's no possible confusion(?).

I'd appreciate some feedback on this, and in the hope that y'all agree with me (as you can imagine this is taking up quite a bit of my wikitime), I'm posting this note on all the relevant discussion pages. Please bear in mind I am only suggesting this for the albums released sections and NOT for any other kind of list. Thanx. 23:13, 13 November 2006 (UTC)

Nobody seems to have followed up on this, but I notice that every other year I've looked at it puts them alphabetically by album title. This is the only exception! -- BRG 19:17, 23 April 2007 (UTC)

Should this article be reformatted?[edit]

After having looked at the articles for "year" in music, as well as articles for "year" in R&B, "year" in country, etc. I am thinking that the article simply saying "year" in music as far as recorded music goes should include the top 5-10 "pop" hits of the year with a link to more descriptive article including all the Top 10 hits, "notable" recordings, etc. as well as sections for top 5-10 R&B hits and link to full article, etc. As it stands, these articles seem to assert that "pop" is the only music that matters in a given year but adding all the content from the articles focused on other genres of music within that given year will make the article unwieldy and overlong. Does anyone else feel that the articles simply saying (year) in music should be a general overview of the very top hits of the respective genres with spinoff articles detailing the individual genres in depth?

Classical Music[edit]

Richard Georg Strauss (11 June 1864 – 8 September 1949) listed in 1960 with Richard Strauss – Metamorphosen when the article about Strauss mentioned it to be written in 1945? Please explain. -- (talk) 00:22, 6 September 2011 (UTC)

Looks like a prank. I have deleted the entry. Thanks for calling attention to this.—Jerome Kohl (talk) 17:05, 6 September 2011 (UTC)
