Hi. I wonder how wise it is to include the Don't Download This Song video in the filmography section. As I'm sure the interested parties know, Straight Outta Lynwood will have a total of six of these animated videos, all for original songs. This will result in signficantly more videos, especially for this one album. Also, it seems that Al's involvement in these videos will be minimal, especially compared to his other music videos. I'm not even sure that all of these songs will have articles. --Maxamegalon2000 17:44, 2 September 2006 (UTC)
- Good question. Should we include the other five videos as well?--Brand Eks 00:38, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

- Yeah, any song that has an official video sould be on the list. JQF 02:27, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
- I disagree. In light of Straight Outta Lynwood, I think any song that has been promoted and shown on TV (or other sources, like Don't Download This Song was) in some form should be listed as a single. The rest of the songs on SOL shouldn't be listed since they weren't promoted apart from being extras as an incentive to buy the album. ~ Gromreaper 10:45, 27 October 2006 (UTC)
Should "Do I Creep You Out" be included in filmography? It, as Gromreaper said, "has been promoted and shown on TV (or other sources)". Also, I feel it is certainly more desrving than "Canadian Idiot". (Which doesn't even have a video).
My question is whether or not the section should be renamed. For nearly every other celebrity article on my watchlist, "flimography" refers to movies (and, in some cases, TV show appearances). Since, for example, the "UHF" entry in this section links to the song, rather than the movie, I think it would be a good idea to change the name of this section to "videography", and have the "Feature films, TV shows & Long form videos" line at the bottom form a seperate "filmography" section. - Ugliness Man 21:35, 24 March 2007 (UTC)
Didn't there use to be a "singles" section on the template? Where did it go? --BlooWilt 00:40, 13 July 2007 (UTC)
I think he has a lot of singles and enough for a separate template to sort them out with his albums/soundtracks/etc. Why did it get redirected to this template? WIKIPEDIAN Penguin (♫♫) 20:39, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
Separating "Singles" and "Other songs"
Considering we have a number of songs that are not released as singles but have notability on their own, and to keep the format/clarity with other musician templates, maybe perhaps we have the Singles line and then "Other Songs" to represent notable songs that were not released as singles but have separate articles. --MASEM (t) 19:33, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
