No. 1 song for February 6, 2010[edit]

Apparently, there must be a dispute on which song is No. 1 for this particular week — either it's "White Liar" or "The Truth." Do we have a confirmed link to lead us to exactly where we can verify what next week's No. 1 song is? Otherwise, maybe in the future, we should wait until Billboard actually posts its chart for a given week, and then this way, we don't have these disputes and potential edit wars.

Rhett Akins[edit]

I agree with User:Nowyouseeme. Rhett Akins should be recognized as a co-writer of "Gimmie That Girl," because he has had a previous #1 hit, "Don't Get Me Started". --Lost Fugitive (talk) 17:22, 1 May 2010 (UTC)

Thank you. Nowyouseeme - Tà£k 08:30, 2 May 2010 (UTC)
What exactly does having had a #1 hit in the past have to do with him co-writing a song? The section says "special note" and there's nothing particularly special nor noteworthy about this information being included. CloversMallRat (talk) 00:20, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
Like I told you before, that is only your opinion. Nowyouseeme - Tà£k 00:21, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
He's being recognized here as a songwriter, and he's no more notable than any other songwriter. None of the other songs on this page say who co-wrote them. CloversMallRat (talk) 01:01, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
I just realized 2 other songs were co-written by country artists, "The Truth" (Ashley Monroe) & "Why Don't We Just Dance" (Jonathan Singleton). Is that what you were getting at, you didn't understand why they weren't being recognized in the notes? Nowyouseeme - Tà£k 01:34, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
Those artists never released a #1 hit. --Lost Fugitive (talk) 01:52, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
I think that's fair. Nowyouseeme - Tà£k 01:53, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
Yes, I think it makes sense. I don't understand the Mall Rat's objection to this. I hope she could better explain herself. --Lost Fugitive (talk) 01:55, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
She just doesn't think that it is noteworthy or important enough to be added. I don't believe there is any harm in having it mentioned in the note, this has been standard practice for the last ten years in country music. Nowyouseeme - Tà£k 01:57, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
Whether they had a #1 hit or not shouldn't matter, that's the point I'm trying to make. Having released a #1 hit, doesn't have any connection to co-writing "Gimmie That Girl." CloversMallRat (talk) 02:59, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
I think we need to request Arbitration. Nowyouseeme - Tà£k 03:44, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
Or conduct a poll. Nowyouseeme - Tà£k 03:45, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

Personally, I don't see where listing a songwriter — any songwriter, for that matter — is that important. Yeah, Rhett Akins had a No. 1 hit previously as a singer, but I agree that he's no more notable just because he's had a past No. 1 hit as a performer (same is true for many other artists, say Bill Anderson). I believe songwriter information would be more appropriate for each of the individual song pages — and we have pages set up for most of the No. 1 songs now from 1944 to the present, if I recall correctly. (Yes, not all these pages do currently have songwriter information, as many are bare minimum pages; that's a completely different project that can be coordinated elsewhere.) There's a bunch of information that could be listed with each No. 1 song, but I prefer to keep it simple — whether it was an award winner by a major program, if it was a landmark No. 1 (e.g., first, a record-setting number, etc.), if it was the No. 1 song of the year, and so forth. With that in mind, this discussion on including songwriters in the notes section should probably go to the WikiProject Country Music project page, even though that WikiProject is inactive at present, to gain a further concensus. I don't see well-thought out arguments on this page at this point. By taking this argument to the country music WikiProject, we can get a better feel for what is appropriate for the notes section. [[Briguy52748 (talk) 03:12, 4 May 2010 (UTC)]]

I'm glad someone else 'round here sees it the way I do. CloversMallRat (talk) 03:17, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

In my opinion the notes section is just plain trivia that really should belong only on the songs page. (Unless it made history, which I doubt any of the those songs did) So I don't necessarily care whether we mention who co-wrote it or not. --Caldorwards4 (talk) 03:19, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

Maybe we should remove the special notes all together, for other genres' 2010 number 1 articles (like List of number-one adult contemporary singles of 2010 (U.S.) & Hot Adult Top 40 Tracks number-one hits of 2010) there is no special notes, only week, song, and artist. NOWucme(NOWudont) talk 2 me 03:47, 4 May 2010 (UTC)
Myself, I'm not totally against notes in the "notes" section when said information is truly noteworthy and not indiscriminate trivia. For instance, it may be important to differentiate a song with an identical title but is a completely different song. For instance "How Was I to Know," which was a hit for both Reba McEntire and John Michael Montgomery during 1997. See, this is why I would like to take this up at WikiProject Country Music — to come to a consensus there and then apply it to all pages (Nowyouseeme — not saying your argument is totally without merit, but it might be better said in that forum.) Caldorwards4 — As far as I can tell, none of the 2010 songs have made history (so far), and I agree that most of the time, songwriter information is irrelevant and belongs on that particular song's page. [[Briguy52748 (talk) 12:02, 4 May 2010 (UTC)]]
I've started a discussion on this topic at the WikiProject Country Music talk page. Let's try to move further discussion there and come to some consensus there so we can move forward. [[Briguy52748 (talk) 12:28, 4 May 2010 (UTC)]]

Dispute[edit]

I was asked if I could help here with the dispute, but I'm not entirely clear what it is. Apparently it's whether to include a co-writer, which CloversMallRat feels should not be included, is that right? SlimVirgin talk contribs 17:31, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

The dispute is taking place under the section headed "Rhett Akins" — where you are welcome to place your comments — and is over whether including the co-writer on the basis of him having a previous No. 1 chart hit as a performer is notable enough for inclusion. Also, I've started a discussion over at WikiProject Country Music, so you are welcome to add comments there as well. [[Briguy52748 (talk) 18:22, 4 May 2010 (UTC)]] (P.S. to future contributors on this subject — no need to start a new section for your remarks. Just place them at the bottom of the most recent section, or below the comment if you're supporting or disagreeing with the poster.)


Lock on editing of Number One songs list[edit]

Why is there a lock on editing the Number One page? BravesFan2006 (talk) 09:09, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

Because of the edit war in the above discussion. EnDaLeCoMpLeX (talk) 14:52, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
You also shouldn't add a new #1 when it was not yet published by Billboard. This in an encyclopedia and not a place for fan predictions. Hekerui (talk) 21:02, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
Billboard.com releases chart highlights every Monday afternoon which includes the new #1 songs. NOWucme(NOWudont) talk 2 me 22:37, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

Edit request from BravesFan2006, 3 May 2010[edit]

"Gimmie That Girl" spends its 2nd week at #1 for the chart week of May 15, 2010. Please add the May 15th entry. Thanks!!

BravesFan2006 (talk) 22:37, 3 May 2010 (UTC) BravesFan2006

This date is in the future - was this intentional? In either case, please could you provide a reliable source to support this fact? Thanks — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 11:03, 4 May 2010 (UTC)
You obviously haven't figured out that Billboard publishes the charts for the current week about 10 days in advance. I'd suggest knowing the subject you're debating before throwing up the red flag. CloversMallRat (talk) 23:35, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

We Just Need To Take A Chill Pill[edit]

Everyone Just Needs To Take A Break And Chill Now I Do Get The Point The Songwriter is Important I'm Myself Is A Songwriter But You Know They Should Have Their Own Place Witch Is The Songs Own Article

But on one Note It Does Seem Like No One Cares About Rhett I Know He Only Had One #1 As An Artist So what I Noticed On Luke Bryan's Do I There Was No Stupid Edit War Over Putting The Guys From Lady Antebellum As Co-songwriters of The Song

Is It Just Me Or Does This Music World Go Around Newer Artists and Screw The Old And Who Cares About The Songwriters Unless It's The Artist Them Selfs Or Another Popular Artist

Anyway What I Am Saying Just Let It Go I Use This Page For Updates And I Like The Early Updates Waiting Kills Me Just As Long As It's Legit Info Then I'm Good And That's How It Should Be

So If You Want Lock It From The Public Feed Do It But Keep On Doing What Was Going On Before This Whole Edit War

Thanks I Hope We Can Get This Back in Order Cause This IS Stupid —Preceding Wikipedia:Signatures comment added by Special:Contributions/jinnyjohnson45 (talk) 06:52, 10 May 2010 (UTC)

Jinnyjohnson — so what's your point? (BTW — your post is even more difficult to read because you use caps to start every word, when it's not necessary.) Anyway, have we come to a consensus on what should and should not be included in the notes field of the table? If not, I think it's about time to come to one so that we can move on.
