Fair use rationale for Image:PatsyFaded.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:PatsyFaded.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

from San Antonio Rose[edit]

Another favorite which Jim Rob and John WIlls wrote, was the blues-fiddle tune "Faded Love". Ruby loved her father to play it: "It was slow and I could rest my fingers at the piano." Lorene the youngest daughter, remembered beign awakened at all hours of the night by the lonesome melody of Faded Love: When Papa could not sleep or was worried, he played it. p 11 Steve Pastor (talk) 21:59, 8 November 2008 (UTC)


Just heard a 19th century American song Nellie Gray and the first half of this song seems to derive from it. Anybody have an authoritative source to verify? Tapered (talk) 04:27, 14 August 2010 (UTC)

Check out: Western Swing Fiddle and The Jazz of the Southwest: An Oral History of Western Swing. Knowing Wills (i.e. "you can rearrange an old song and make it swing"), he probably took the old melody and spruced it up a bit. "San Antonio Rose" is "Spanish Two Step" played backwards [1]. If you listen to [2], "Faded Love" sounds like a near copy, if you listen to [3], they aren't so similar. So the answer? Probably yes. Any solid proof? Probably never. Check out "My Sweet Lord." Benjamin Hanby probably stole the melody for "Nellie Gray" too. TuckerResearch (talk) 03:16, 25 August 2010 (UTC)

Requested Move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: return Bob Wills song to status of primary topic. Favonian (talk) 22:09, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

Faded Love (Bob Wills song)Faded Love – To undo unnecesary move which was marked to disambiguate from Faded Love (song) which was created as redirect anyway. So at the moment there is only one notable "Faded Love Richhoncho (talk) 17:06, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

Why was this page moved when there is only one song (that I know of) called "Faded Love"? TuckerResearch (talk) 03:42, 25 February 2012 (UTC)

The move was made with the following comment, "Requires disambiguation with Faded Love (song)), which as I said was created as redirect. --Richhoncho (talk) 09:06, 25 February 2012 (UTC)
As of 2 days ago, when a user searched for "Faded Love", up came options of "Faded Love" to this article and "Faded Love (song)" a redirect to an album. The choices offered were confusing; both are songs, even though the redirect went to an album. An Anonymous IP has in the interim turned Faded Love to a disambiguation page where it is clearer what is covered in these articles. --Moni3 (talk) 16:41, 25 February 2012 (UTC)
Comment. Apologies to Moni3, I didn't read the changes correctly, but I think France3470 has suggested the perfect solution. After all, why shouldn't disambiguation pages be named as what they are? --Richhoncho (talk) 08:13, 26 February 2012 (UTC)
