Are Awesome Music examples not supposed to be on the main YMMV page? Asking because someone removed the examples from the Joker page.

Are there any requirements for what can get an Awesome Music page, or can we just do it whenever we want?

Jun 4th 2018 at 11:00:56 PM •••

What are even the rules for adding Awesome Music examples? Why do I have to add context for every single song when I edit, when on the Nintendo pages, for example, all the examples are without any context whatsoever.

Take Super Mario Bros.; the examples in the boxes are merely composed of a link and the title of the track.

Do I need to explain why every song is really cool or awesome? I thought merely providing information on when the song appears in the work/media would suffice.

Even if it's true, can we stop saying "since the music is by X, this is to be expected" every time we have this trope? It's a cliche now.

You know what really bugs me? When a work has its own Awesome Music page, you'll often see this on the YMMV page:

I know it's not just done with Awesome Music. I've seen it done with Memetic Mutation and Nightmare Fuel, but seriously? What's the point of putting that in YMMV?

The Corrupt Corporate Executive link feels like natter bait. I'm surprised it hasn't been taken out yet.

Removed and placed in you know that show.

so why is it that we are told this:

"Some of these link to You Tube, so if you wish to listen to them in stereo, add "&hd=1" to the link without the quotation marks. (Or, on the video player, change the resolution to 480p or higher.) If you want to link to a specific part, add the following to the link: "&t=1m10s" and adjust the time accordingly. "

and then are told to remove the fragments two lines down here:

"Note: When posting links to You Tube here, make sure to strip their UR Ls of all unnecessary fragments - the ?v=oHg5SJYRHA0 parameter is the only one needed, really. It's not recommended to post links to Youtube here due to Corrupt Corporate Executive syndrome. It's better to post webpages of artists themselves due to less regional restrictions there. "

For the Awesome Music section... I was actually replacing some dead links for Code Geass and the like on Youtube... and the question I came up with I think applies to all sections:

Should music that is linked, when possible, be the full OST music? or the cut down and edited music used in said movie/show/etc.? Or should we start linking both Full OST music and edited music in each part?

- Full OST Music Advantage: Those that heard it in the movie/show/etc. may appreciate hearing the music in full.

- Edited Music Advantage: Often music is edited in said movies/shows/etc. to emphathize a particular mood or feeling, and in its full version, it often loses that particular focus effort.

- Having both Advantage: Well, you get the best of both worlds, though this requires more work and organization, as well as creating more clutter.

We're not allowed to link to either unless it's officially posted by the rights-holders; it's just not a very well-enforced rule.

Correct. Linking to stuff that's not posted legally is at the very least a technical copyright violation.

If it is posted legally, then I would try to find a snippet that is as close to what's presented in the work as possible. But that's just my opinion - the previous sentence is an official policy.

In the way Nightmare Fuel, Heartwarming and Funny have their own images on a work, could this have an image link like that?

It can be hard to find a picture for a song, but if you think you can do it, I think that would be a great idea! However, I would suggest you start an Image Pickin' discussion, just to make sure other tropers agree with your picture.

Sadly, a number of you tube links are broken, leading to videos retired for the usual reasons, or even to accounts that doesn't exist anymore.

Well, I usually try to fix broken links I come across, or if there's no substitute, just remove the the link.

This trope is subjective. If someone likes it. We can't tell them they're wrong.

(Latia): Um, to the person who said to move the bullets of Crowning Music/Music to their own page, I'm REALLY sorry about moving them back. I didn't see your edit. Perdon.

May 21st 2010 at 3:13:43 AM •••

Some of these link to You Tube, so if you wish to listen to them in stereo, add "=18" or "&fmt=35" to the link without the quotation marks. This may negate some of the awesome, but in some cases it may also elevate the song to godlike status. Your Mileage May Vary, so consider this fair warning.

Uh, how does changing the audio quality to 480p and up make the music less awesome? I don't get it. Show me an example of a track that gets crappier with higher audio quality and I will put it back.

I hesitate to remove the current image (the one with the hands and the lighters) because I haven't the slightest clue what it is. Anyone know?

It's what people do at concerts to awesome music, typically Power Ballads. Fits perfectly.

Jul 6th 2015 at 8:42:19 AM •••

If some people don't know what it means, I'm not so sure it "fits perfectly", though I can't think of anything better.

Apr 25th 2010 at 7:19:33 AM •••

Umm, what? Why was the video game links moved here? Seriously, it's a cluttered mess now.

These pages are so addicting. Is this site supposed to be about the conventions of media- OH MY GOD KOJI KONDO! DO WANT!

How well does it match the trope?
