Why the strange capitalization (currently "One Song to the tune of Another")? It should be "One Song To The Tune Of Another", the first letter of each word in uppercase. - Furrykef 09:58, 3 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Why perhaps, in preferred wikistyle, "One song to the tune of another"? Anyway, I've moved it back to OSTTTOA where it seems to belong. -- ALoan (Talk) 11:39, 3 Nov 2004 (UTC)
The all-lowercase-but-first-letter style is wrong because Wikipedia doesn't use it for proper names. This seems to be proper enough a name. - Furrykef 00:11, 4 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Copyright Issues[edit]

Does the inclusion of such a long extract from Humph's introduction constitue a copyright violation? --HappyDog 21:16, 7 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Given the length of an episode and the enormous number thereof produced I very much doubt it, and my gut feeling is that in the exceedingly unlikely event of a lawsuit on the part of the Beeb the court would sympathise with a referral thereof by the Foundation to the reply in the case of Arkell v. Pressdram.

Copycat games[edit]

Dutch Comedy TV game show "De Mike & Thomas Show" also has a segment about singing one song to the tune of another. Should it get mention here? It is virtually identical. (talk) 21:18, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

RfC on redirection[edit]

Please leave your comments in a named section and avoid threaded discussions in other sections.

Comments from (involved) TreasuryTag[edit]

This game is not subject to significant coverage in multiple reliable sources independent of the subject. It is not discussed directly and in detail. It is not notable. And it is obviously appropriate to redirect this page to the already-existing section of List of games on I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue about this very game. And I'm not clear why Ifore2010 (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log) has chosen to revert-war without explanation over it. ╟─TreasuryTagcollectorate─╢ 19:00, 2 September 2011 (UTC)

  • In response to Simply south (talk · contribs), it must be said that the first source constitutes only trivial coverage – not detailed at all, just a single tangential mention – while the second source doesn't seem relevant to this BBC radio game at all, but merely to the underlying concept. ╟─TreasuryTagstannary parliament─╢ 14:22, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

Comments from (uninvolved) Simply south[edit]

I have found a couple of sources, one which uses it in refernce to Metaphors and another in whch there has been a previous art in which one sings one song on another, called a timbre. I'm new to RFC, have I done this correctly Simply south...... eating shoes for 5 years So much for ER 20:20, 2 September 2011 (UTC)

Comments from (uninvolved) Noleander[edit]

Not notable, unless more sources found - This article is about a sketch that is performed on a radio show. It is already mentioned in another article: List of games on I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue. Editors have created an article dedicated to the sketch: here. The question is whether the topic is notable enough for its own article. The sources I see so far do not justify its own article. Editors that think a dedicated article is a good idea should provide some WP:Reliable sources here in this Talk page. If sufficient secondary sources (not from the BBC) are found, that may justify an article. --Noleander (talk) 20:40, 2 September 2011 (UTC)
