Fair use rationale for Image:DJM DJS10902.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:DJM DJS10902.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.

Living together?[edit]

"The song was part of a stockpile of songs John and Taupin wrote in 1969 while living together." Really? why isn't this fact mentioned in the main articles? Avihu (talk) 18:27, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

Typical of the queer and egomaniacal Elton John to say that he wrote the song! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.197.15.138 (talk) 21:28, 8 July 2011 (UTC)

EJ many think he wrote the song in Oct 1969 but he performs the tune of the chorus with amended lyrics here as a jingle in a Radio Luxembourg broadcast dated April 20 1969. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HqpYxfp3L0Y (109.151.234.165 (talk) 00:22, 20 December 2012 (UTC))

Merge?[edit]

It has been suggested that Your Song (Ellie Goulding song) is merged into this article. Any thoughts? Mhiji (talk) 17:25, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

  • Agree Yes, it should be because it's about the song. IXIA (talk) 17:41, 18 November 2010 (UTC)
  • Agree per above. (Sorry, I realised I didn't actually state what my opinion was!) Mhiji (talk) 18:17, 18 November 2010 (UTC)
  • Agree, Absolutely agree with the above, should definately be merged as soon as possible Virus101 (talk) 02:04, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
  • Disagree, I don't see why such a minor artist gets to be on the article summary while billy's paul version who is as famous as the original version has only one line — Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.87.9.14 (talk) 15:45, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
  • Disagree, this article should not single out only one cover version. If the article talks about covers, let's not miss out on the Al Jarreau, Rod Stewart etc., etc. versions either. Crazyforreading (talk) 16:39, 17 November 2013 (UTC)

Chart positions[edit]

I'm pretty sure Goulding's cover hit #1. Could this be referenced?--85.210.20.13 (talk) 15:23, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

No, her version was never #1 on the main UK chart (see [1]), but rather on the download chart. SnapSnap 17:30, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

Genre[edit]

Please don't revert cited material without reason. If you want to add any other genres, you need sources per WP:RS. 183.171.160.177 (talk) 02:51, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
