This is a set of general guidelines to follow when creating and editing mainspace articles concerning a song or music track Although this is an official guide, editors are encouraged to stray from them if it will improve the overall quality of the article.

Legend

  • Yellow boxes are general guidelines meant to pertain to the main text on the page.
  • Red boxes are guidelines for anything else.
  • Light-blue boxes are minor editorial notes for that particular section.

The "Infobox sound" template is to be inserted here. Information in regards to the song or music track's must be filled out as much as possible. Information includes, but are not limited to: Debut (date), media featured (in order from its earliest appearance down to its most recent appearance), the song's length (minutes:seconds format), band/orchestra, performers and publishers etc. At the bottom of the infobox reserves room for for the sound or music file itself in .ogg format. The section is to contain a maximum of 3 sound files; the first being the song/music itself which has not been modified (known as the 'raw' version), with subsequent ones below it being officially-licensed and supported remixes (if any exists). Any more than 3 sound files of the same music or song must then be all placed in a table near the bottom of the article, reserving the infobox to contain only the 'raw' song or music.
This is the introductory summary. Information to be provided here is to provide a brief summary of the song in both within the universe of its respective media and real-world information including, which media it first debuted in and who composed/wrote/performed it. Other information also include different versions of the song or music which exists in their respective formats and media.

Lyrics

As its name suggest, the complete and accurate insertion of the song or music's lyrics (if any) are to be placed here.

All lyrical text are to be placed and written under italic.

Sometimes a particular song or music with lyrics may come in a multitude of different languages, or in a Language Other Than English (LOTE) eg. Japanese. In such cases, the translations in each of the music or song respectively officially-supported languages are to be placed underneath one another under sub-headings after the name of the language being portrayed.

An example will be provided below:

Note when the instructions say "officially-support" languages, that means language translation available for the song which is provided by the media it came in eg. A game may have a 'language selection' option in the settings, giving users the option to select 5 languages (eg. French). This means that editors should not go out of their way translating the song or music into every language which exists on earth EXCEPT for those 5 officially-provided translations.

English

(Instrumental Intro)
This is my escape
I'm running through this world and I'm not looking back
Cause I know I can go
Where no one's ever gone and I'm not looking back
But how will I know when I get there?
And how will I know when to leave?
We've all gotta start from somewhere
And it's right there for me
The possibilities are never ending
I see it, I see it, and now it's all within my reach (Endless Possibility)
I see it, I see it now, it's always been inside of me (And now I feel so free)
Endless Possibility
And so I'll carry on
My time to shine has come, I feel it! (I feel it, I feel it)
As fast as I can go
Straight to the top I know, you'll see it! (You'll see it, you'll see it)
So please wake me up when I get there
It feels like I'm lost in a dream
I know in my heart that it's my time
And I already see
The possibilities are never ending!
I see it, I see it, and now it's all within my reach (Endless Possibility)
I see it, I see it now, it's always been inside of me (And now I feel so free)
Endless Possibility
Drop that smile 'cause you're beaten again
No, this is where my journey begins!
You're losing speed, you're losing your flow
But inside me's a power you'll never know!
Then let it out, it's inside you
Better all stand back 'cause I'm coming THROUGH!
(instrumental break)
I see it, I see it, and now it's all within my reach
I see it, I see it now, it's always been inside of me!
I see it, I see it, and now it's all within my reach (Endless Possibility)
I see it, I see it now, it's always been inside of me (And now I feel so free)
Endless Possibility (Endless Possibility)
Endless Possibility (Endless Possibility)
Endless Possibility!
