Fair use rationale for Image:TheRose1.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:TheRose1.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 uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Someone put an advertisement tag on this or replace "westlife" (whoever the hell that is) with Bette Midler.

I've removed the Westlife content (which was overkill for this article) and replaced it with sentence that they covered the song. I was tempted to also remove the #1 single info for westlife as well, but left it.

Well, I tried to remove it, but it seem that it shouldn't be remove. I completely disagree, but I'm no wikipedia expert. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 207.210.36.38 (talk) 22:45, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

Hey, I have to agree with you, it says one sentence for everybody else, and way more for westlife, I think that a westlife fan made this article.

Ach, mein Seel, fang an zu singen[edit]

Recently I heard the traditional Austrian song Ach, mein Seel, fang an zu singen. To me it sounds very similar to "The Rose". Could there be some connection between these songs? --NeoUrfahraner (talk) 09:11, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

Due to your note I listened to this song: Indeed I think there's a strong similarity. I tried to google, but couldn't find background information. Just wanted to support your inquiry, but since it's from 2008...

Spoof?[edit]

A respectful parody has been circulating which is largely a homage to Aaron Russo's death. Includes lyrics such as "Some say love, is a rude awakening, or it could be trading places" "Others says it is like freedom to fascism". Obvious reference to his films, one of his most known being the Rose (although he will likely be remembered for either Trading Places or Freedom to Fascism).

Westlife?[edit]

Why has so much more prominence been given to the Westlife cover than the Bette Midler original recording? 124.179.81.17 (talk) 07:04, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

Other versions[edit]

The Dubliners also have performed this song, see Talk:The_Dubliners#Irish_Chart_singles_section. I would suppose to add a reference here. --KaiMichaelPoppe (talk) 09:03, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

Versions Movie/OST/Single[edit]

Could someone provide Information about the various recordings of the track. There seem to be three different ones. The one used in the movie, a second one released on the soundtrack (with a different vocal track from Midler and additional vocals from Amanda McBroom), and a third one for the single release, with orchestral overdubs. Could someone point out reasons for this and maybe, where to find the movie version?. The article states that the version in the movie is the same as on the soundtrack, in fact it isn't, listen closely, it's different.
