Citation needed[edit]

While I respect the point Jheiv made about it being unnecessary to remove a reference just because a better one is needed, I should point out that this "reference" is entirely composed of a music video caption with the words:

"Alexander Perls Songs specializes in creating timeless lyrics and hit vocal performances for the cutting edge of dance music.
Alexander Perls’ catalog stretches back to 1998, and contains more than twenty top-40 pop hits, in nearly every country in Europe."

This does not pass as a reference. Larryisgood (talk) 00:13, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

the "youtube song"[edit]

Born To Be Wasted is the song that Youtube automatically puts in when there is a music copyright violation. Kind of noteworthy... Everyone alive can immediately identify the first 10 seconds of the song, haha.Skiendog (talk) 07:39, 21 October 2011 (UTC)

With a Spirit is the song that shows up the most on YouTube videos with substituted audio, more so that Born To Be Wasted, and is the main reason a video isn't watched. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:29, 31 October 2011 (UTC)

Popularity of "Dreamscape"[edit]

"His song "Dreamscape" has been dubbed "YouTube's National Anthem" by his own recording company due to its popularity as background music in YouTube videos."

I think this should be altered to reflect the fact that it's mainly popular because it is the first selection on the list of royalty free music available to YouTube videos, and videos defaulted to this when the sound was removed for copyright or other reasons. Similar to how companies used to name themselves "AAA Services" in order to get the top listing in the yellow pages in their respective category. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lakers44449 (talkcontribs) 00:36, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

The URLs for references 2 and 3 seem to be wrong. Clarinetguy097 (talk) 05:47, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
