Usage

This is the template for the infobox for a song article—if the song has been released as one of the A-side and B-side of a single, then Template:Infobox single should be used instead.

Unless otherwise stated here, refer to Template:Infobox single for guidelines on how to use parameters that it shares with Template:Infobox song.

Parameters

Name 
This field should contain the name of the song. This field is required.
Type 
If you want to add something more descriptive than "Song" use the "Type" field.
Tracks 
There are two ways to create a track listing: a full listing or a partial listing. A full listing is preferred. Do not use both the full listing parameter and the partial listing parameters. (See the examples.)
  1. A full track listing is created using the Tracks field. List the tracks on the album in sequence using numbered list notation. Use links for the songs on the album that have Wikipedia articles. The name of the current song should be bold.
  2. A partial listing is created using the prev, prev_no, track_no, next, and next_no fields. Song names should be quoted. Use links for songs that have a Wikipedia article.
Recorded 
This field should include details on when and where the song was recorded. Separate multiple values using {{Plainlist}}
Released 
This field should contain the date the song was released, using {{Start date}}. This is typically the release date of the album on which the song was released. If the song was released as the B-side of a single, specify the release date of the single.
Length 
Use {{Duration}}, thus: {{Duration|m=3|s=45}}, renders as 3:45, for 3 minutes 45 seconds

Examples

The "Perfect Blue Buildings" Infobox on this page was created using the following template. It includes a full track listing.

{{Infobox song
| Name           = Perfect Blue Buildings
| Artist         = [[Counting Crows]]
| Album          = [[August and Everything After]]
| Released       = {{Start date|1993|09|14}}
| Recorded       = March 1993, [[Los Angeles]]
| Genre          = [[Alternative rock]]
| Length         = {{Duration|m=5|s=00}}
| Writer         = [[Adam Duritz]]
| Label          = [[Geffen Records|Geffen]]
| Producer       = [[T-Bone Burnett]]
| Tracks         =
# "[[Round Here]]"
# "Omaha"
# "[[Mr. Jones (Counting Crows song)|Mr. Jones]]"
# "'''Perfect Blue Buildings'''"
# "Anna Begins"
# "Time and Time Again"
# "[[Rain King (Counting Crows song)|Rain King]]"
# "Sullivan Street"
# "Ghost Train"

}}

To create a partial track listing, omit the Tracks parameter and replace it with the prev, prev_no, track_no, next, and next_no parameters.
