Why I Made This Page
With less than ten months until 2010, I think it's about time to make this page, as many musical events are now scheduled this far out. — Preceding unsigned comment added by GodivaCake (talk • contribs)
The Chemo & Detox
Two albums that are coming out in 2010 are not on the list, Busta Rhymes' "The Chemo", and Dr. Dre's "Detox". Detox is set to come out in the 1st half of 2010, as the release date of The Chemo is currently unknown —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 14:15, 21 October 2009 (UTC)
Preparing for major revamping of this page
I just thought that I would mention that I will beginning a major revamping of this page shortly. I will model it after the current 2010 in television page with appropriate links to other regions in music. This standard seems more appropriate and may shorten these music pages' links dramatically.

- So you will just be more or less moving stuff around to new pages and not altering the content? Fezmar9 (talk) 18:53, 26 December 2009 (UTC)
- It would be more appropriate to alter 'some' content to conform with release dates because some artists release in different regions at different dates. Also, we can finally get the US-centric title off because all of the US content will be moved towards a US page (See 2009 in American television as an example.

Here is how this will work. I'm not trying to take over the page or anything: There is a lot of information to re-organize, and I would like this transition to go as smooth as possible.
- First, a new page must be created to hold all of the information that exists now. This page will be temporary and once all of the new pages such as 2010 in British music, 2010 in American music, ect... are near completed, then it may be deleted.
- Second, All of the pages must have the same type of "contents" format in order to hold a standard. I believe the "music events" are best placed on first, followed by "album release dates", and then the list of "Top-20 hits" I'm sure will fill up even more space at a later time as the Top-20 hits section does presently at the bottom of the 2009 in music page.
- Third, what is the purpose of the "Bands on hiatus," or "returning bands"? The information is redundant and takes up unnessasary space; Returned bands usually also lie on the album release date section, which is why "returned bands" should not even be there. Finally, the "Bands on hiatus" is pointless; hiatus means that a band isn't doing anything, so why even mention it?
- Fourth, This is going to be a team effort. I was shooting for this revamp to take place before new years, before the Top-20 section would fill and make it nearly impossible to regionalize the article. I am currently working on a prototype page for 2010 in American music in my sandbox, adn I will create a 2011 in music page that fits the ideal standard to future articles.
