Marvin Gaye[edit]

Hey BrothaTimothy, check this IMDb site out!

Best, --Discographer (talk) 20:44, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

I know what you mean about not including it in the aricle, kind of like when we included Blondie: The Florence Ballard Story in her article, and no movie on that ever did get made! Also, both of these films had original casted leads who both dropped out. Best, --Discographer (talk) 20:59, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

Bad (album)[edit]

The information I gave for the album was correct, otherwise I wouldn't have put it. He did have seven number ones for that album. Five in the US, two in other countries. If you want to find out for yourself, check out MJ's singles charts to find out for yourself.Stco23 (talk) 18:00, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

Never mind, I checked to see why you changed it. I guess it's fine. The reason for that was I changed it from six to seven because somebody put six and that person could have done it because he/she saw a number one for one of the songs in another country and decided to change it as a result.Stco23 (talk) 18:06, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:The Moonglows.jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:The Moonglows.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F9 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted images or text borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

I don't know whether you've seen this thread- WP:RD/E#Enotris Johnson (+ Little Richard). Anything you can add? Ghmyrtle (talk) 11:23, 1 November 2013 (UTC)

Hi wish to converse with you outside this forum[edit]

My name is Marg...Please contact me by email. I am new to wiki...want to do an article. Would like for YOU to mentor me. And also wish to communicate with you re your article on Harris Womack (I was a VERY close "friend" of his who loved him dearly). My email: At your convenience and discretion...I leave the timing in your hands and really wish for your serious consideration in regards to mentoring/training me. Warmest regards, Marg March 9th 2014 " (talk) 14:43, 8 March 2014 (UTC)"

You mean when it comes to how to make a Wikipedia article or editing? Sure. I'll send you a message. No prob. Cool you were friends with Harry Womack. BrothaTimothy (talk · contribs) 16:10, 8 March 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for responding re Harry Womack...Helping me...[edit]

BrothaTimothy I am not in a hurry and I know you have life outside of here. But when you can manage as far as mentoring me - let me know and I will jump at the opportunity. I will check back here every other day to see if you are able. If you will, will you give me a few dates where you may be available to communicate or when you have the time email me: I am trying to do an article on another friend of mine who is also a bass player, is still alive and I want to honor him. Atleast start on the article so others who are knowledgeable will also post. Hope you are well. Thank you for your time.

Oh sure will, just message me here and I'll tell you how. BrothaTimothy (talk · contribs) 19:30, 12 March 2014 (UTC)


Hey BrothaTimothy, I agree. The other day, WikiProject The Supremes was tagged as being "inactive". I thought, "that's okay, why not just have a Motown WikiProject which would cover not just only one artist, but all of them!" This way, the Motown WP will have an ongoing lifespan since it could also deal with not only its artists (The Supremes, Four Tops, Vandellas, Miracles, Marvin Gaye, etc.), but also its record labels (Motown, Gordy, Tamla, etc.), families (Gordy, Gaye, Jackson, DeBarge, etc.), and other things of that sort (writers, producers, backups, production, companies, etc.) which are all connected to each other under the Motown umbrella. We could dissolve the Supremes WikiProject if we must, and "merge" it into WP Motown, and anything else out there that might be Motown related, and not just focus on individuals, but the entire Motown genre itself! We could have all of that under one wiki-project! The Motown WikiProject sounds like a great idea! Is that ambitious or what! Best, --Discographer (talk) 20:20, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

Can you please mentor me... LOL[edit]

Pooooollllleeeeeezzzz .LOL

This relates to first creation, not subsequent recordings. No song gets two years of creation. See the category for more details. Thanks. --Richhoncho (talk) 15:17, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

Love Never Felt So Good[edit]

thanks for taking care of this. I was trying to fix the Russian entry by following the pattern of the others in the list. It didn't work. I didn't put it in originally, just noticed it while reading the article.--FeanorStar7 10:16, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

No problem. Russia's chart operates differently on here than other countries, it seems. BrothaTimothy (talk · contribs) 14:45, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, about Loving You (Michael Jackson song)[edit]

Just making sure that you know that I have nothing to discuss ... as all I did was revert my accidental rollback click ... that you re-reverted, adding the chart back, the you reverted your revert of the rev ... well, yeah ... Steel1943 (talk) 02:27, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

invincible Michael jackson[edit]

hi I was interested in changing the intro of Michael Jackson invincible to,,,,,,,,,,"was his final album",, then on the next sentence put "it was his 10th studio album", however I have run into some opposition,,,,,,-- (talk) 09:40, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

If it says "final album in his lifetime" (meaning his final album released while alive), I'll leave it on there. BrothaTimothy (talk · contribs) 17:22, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of I'm Crazy 'Bout My Baby[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article I'm Crazy 'Bout My Baby has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No references, no claim of notability for this b-side, fails WP:NSONG and WP:GNG.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Aretha Franklin[edit]

Hey dude! I saw you added Aretha Franklin to the list of musical child prodigies. You stated that she played organ, do you have a source for that? Do you know if she's ever recorded playing on the organ? I'm fascinated by the Hammond organ, and Billy Preston — whose name you added to the list, too! — is a hero of mine. :-) Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:04, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

I think it's mentioned in a few Aretha-related biographies. You could check her book, Aretha: From These Roots, I think it's mentioned that she played organ. BrothaTimothy (talk · contribs) 20:41, 27 January 2015 (UTC)
