Fair use rationale for Image:Beach Boys - Heroes and Villains.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Beach Boys - Heroes and Villains.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 Wikipedia articles 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 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.BetacommandBot 02:29, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

Its fine its a single cover! There are tons of album / single covers all over the wiki, with no warnings. --Seth slackware 18:30, 13 June 2007 (UTC)

Chromatic Scale[edit]

The text of the article refers to the 'heavy use' of chromatic scales in Heroes and Villains. There are certainly significant key changes in the piece, but the main tune in the verse makes little use of successive semitones - it just uses a major scale (C sharp). The chorus has a new key, but again not much chromatic work. The 'My children were raised' section is structured around two chords, again not in a chromatic relationship. Is this one of those entries designed to trip up school kids using Wiki for their homework?

I'm not looking for a fight on this, so shall return in a month or so to make changes, unless there are real objections.

The melody is indeed fairly diatonic.--Ilovetopaint (talk) 07:53, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

Bass Line?[edit]

The article states that the song's production was influenced by River Deep - Mountain High and The Bells of St. Mary's, specifically the latter's bass line. However, just a quick listen to both tracks shows that the bass line is in fact directly inspired by the former, River Deep. There is a source cited for the info in the article, but is it possible the author made a mistake? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.55.215.244 (talk) 15:34, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

Yeah that seems likely to be a mistake on Priore's part. There's no point leaving up something that's so blatantly inaccurate.--Ilovetopaint (talk) 07:52, 24 March 2015 (UTC)
