ImpossibleI agree with this
Tropette everydayAgreed too. We have to precise who sang it, and especially why.
love lockdown, you lose.That page is a horrific mess. Someone who knows music backwards and front is going to need to get in there and start the process, because I was completely lost simply reading it. It definitely needs a clean-up, to be certain.
I'll take a stab at the (very few) cases I know, but this page is definitely in need of an expert. Edit: What should we do with all the Mondegreens? Keep? Move to the Mondegreen page? Edit 2: Some cases won't fit the format, since they are related to a band or more general (the "country or rap" thing for example). What should be done with them? Edit 3: Following the example of other meme pages, should we folderize according to bands? For example, The Beatles have a number of memes that might benefit from that.

Bump - anybody else interested in working on this?
Another Wizard boyThis page seems to have a big issue with Zero Context Examples. We need a way to deal with them.
Ok, to get this started, some proposals: We could...

love lockdown, you lose.A sandbox would probably be helpful in doing all of those suggestions - we definitely can't endeavor to clean that thing without the help of one, honestly.
Sandbox here, and a sandbox page for zero-context examples here.

love lockdown, you lose.Would having a 'Meta' folder be a problem? The Milli Vanilli meme is far more about their scandalous reveal as not being actual singers than their song.
If there's more examples like this, we could have one (in fact, there's a "general" folder in the sandbox already). On the other hand, I see nothing wrong in having band-specific memes be in the band folder, even if it's not about specific songs.
Mustelidae = awesomeDoes this still need work?
Windmill, windmill for the land / Is everybody in?
Last time I checked, "needs more work" would have been an understatement.
Tropette everydayMemes are supposed to be viral and internet phenomenons, nah ? I suggest massive clean-up and the removal of unfitting cases. Seriously, this page is the biggest mess of crap I've seen in Tv Tropes, hugger than the still huge Anime page.
In uffish thoughtThis has been around far too long. It is very much still a mess, and it won't start to keep itself clean until everything there is properly done. Can all examples formatted incorrectly and without context for rewriting be pulled to the discussion page? That'd preserve them for future addition by people willing to enter them properly (I doubt any one person has the knowledge to get everything done) and clean the actual page.

To be honest, in that case we would probably pull 90% of the page to discussion. Not that I would mind if we did so...
PULL TO OPENYo TV Tropes, I'm real happy for you, I'mma let you finish, but the old Memes/Music article was one of the best articles of all time! One of the best articles of all time! In all seriousness, this needs a bit of context on most of the examples.
I have an avatar now. Avatars are cool.
Would it benefit from sorting by genre as well, if the examples ever get cleaned up? (Seriously, this thread's been open over a year and at the time I'm writing this there's a grand total of seven examples in the new format. I'm fixing a few more now.)
Anime-tedI changed the wording of the format note to exchange "hottip" for "note/labelnote".
Another Wizard boyThis fix is going slowly because most examples don't have the context required for the new format. Unless we want to comment out all the contextless stuff - now SOP for zero context example filled pages, I notice - and close this.
My first thought on looking at it was pretty much "tear it down and start over." Your idea's a little less destructive.
Another Wizard boyOK, one last bump. Is there any objection to commenting out the bad examples, then put this thread to sleep?
Another Wizard boyDid a trial page on Music Memes. Any comments on replacing the main Memes.Music with it?
