This article has been marked as needing an infobox.


Single infoboxes were requested for the 1955 Bill Hayes, Fess Parker, and Tennessee Ernie Ford recordings of "The Ballad of Davy Crockett" at Wikipedia:WikiProject_Missing_encyclopedic_articles/List_of_notable_songs/13. —Preceding unsigned comment added by [[User:{{{1}}}|{{{1}}}]] ([[User talk:{{{1}}}|talk]] • [[Special:Contributions/{{{1}}}|contribs]])

Can someone (unsigned user above, or anyone else) provide a link to a good pre-existing song article that contains infoboxes for multiple performers' productions of a single song? I checked a couple Beatles songs that I am certain others have performed, but there's only one infobox for each song (eg. Yesterday (song). - Ageekgal 19:51, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

Fair Use of first stanza of lyrics to longer song[edit]

The repeated deletion of the first stanza of the lyrics to The Ballad of Davy Crockett seems incorrect. My understanding is that quoting the first stanza of the song's lyrics falls well within Wikipedia:Fair_use. Examples of this in practice on Wikipedia for other songs Sixteen Tons, Rock Around the Clock, etc. Per Wikipedia:Music_samples, a short audio clip could be linked, so I fail to see how the first stanza of a song that has *20 stanzas*, is in error. ADDED BACK -- rationale = Wikipedia:WikiProject_Songs#Lyrics_and_music_videos

Further, the copyright holder is my (deceased) grandfather. And further still, your edits are also removing a shorter paragraph that someone added long before the first stanza of lyrics were added, and reverts should not remove that content, regardless of the lyric usage discussion.

  • So you would probably know for certain what the correct lyrics are; I thought a spelling to reflect a regional pronunciation, like "b'ar", would also be used for "killed" in that line; I've always thought it was "Kilt him a b'ar". I also have a 1980 version of The Official Album of Disneyland and Walt Disney World, which includes this stanza in a medley, using the words "Tamed him a b'ar". Considering that this song was popularized by Disney on television, I wonder which version was used in the Disneyland show. B7T 19:46, 28 October 2007 (UTC)

Fantastic Mr Fox[edit]
