Talk:Blame It on the Boogie

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search


Along with other info on the song's background I've restored the info re the Jacksons' manager hearing the Mick Jackson original at a MIDEM convention. The background on how the two versions of the song came to be is certainly relevant and as that info was given concisely and fully sourced I contend that it should not have been deleted.

Fair use rationale for Image:Luismil20.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Luismil20.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.

I've heard the song & only Michael Jackson is singing or even appears in it (I own it on DVD) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Series premiere (remake) (talkcontribs) 04:45, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

Tina Charles: "I recorded 'Blame it on the Boogie' before M. Jackson, Sony said [...] 'not strong enough'"[edit]

Now that's news! This is from an interview Tina Charles gave to Too bad nobody has ever been allowed to hear the song before the Jacksons version. Is this interview evidence enough to put this into the article? -andy (talk) 03:55, 17 March 2009 (UTC)

Yes! I added the info yesterday.--Cherrylimerickey (talk) 01:23, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

Infobox images[edit]

I inserted the US side label and then pushed down the German/Dutch front cover. One of the logos| of Epic Records is ineligible for copyright. Consider the US side label free to use. Meanwhile, the German/Dutch front cover is non-free and does the same purpose as the free side label: identifying the release of the song as part of a single release.

Sure, looks fine to me. Ss112 01:33, 5 August 2017 (UTC)
Thanks, Ss112. Meanwhile, you want the German/Dutch image kept, right? --George Ho (talk) 02:44, 5 August 2017 (UTC)
I guess, as it's what you did on Shake Your Body (Down to the Ground) as well. Ss112 02:51, 5 August 2017 (UTC)
