    Dear Staff, would you please correct ANCIENT GREASE to Ancient Grease?


    This is a letter case problem e.g. upper/lower which is discussed
    in this thread Last.fm changes the case of tags (incorrectly)

    Still incorrect. It should be Somebody That I Used To Know (feat. Kimbra)
    Musicbrainz suggests otherwise. Source?


    Really? It shows Gotye feat. Kimbra there. Every major market credits Kimbra as the guest artist.

    Out of curiosity I searched in cd universe, discogs allmusic, cdbaby, itunes
    and yes wiki, and the track Making Mirrors has no featured artist noted on
    the track listings. Even the back cover for the album shows no featured artist/s

  • Jah Doves doesn't exist

    Somebody who wanted to help poor Africans recorded and badly mixed music of the Holy Jah Doves but decided that the name Jah Doves sounded better and uploaded some songs as such to last.fm. I bought that music but changed my own tags, but it's still changed to the wrong name. One of their songs is called Yobu but they changed that into Job. How can this be solved?

  • 宇宙戦隊NOIZ is still redirecting to Imitation PoPs 宇宙戦隊 NOIZ but the band has no longer the "Imitation Pops" in the title, can you do something about it?

    The Stories and Stories are separate artists.

    The 1970s act best known for their #1 hit Brother Louie is properly called "Stories"; unfortunately, some of the albums on "The Stories" page that are actually by "Stories". At least one other lesser-known more recent act has produced CDs clearly labeled "The Stories".

    This has probably already been mentioned but can someone sort out the Alt-J/ Alt-J (∆) confusion.

  • Autocorrect changed Inevitabilis to Invitabilis. The Japanese Wikipedia entry for the series' soundtracks has "Inevitabilis" (track 7 of vol. 2). The track names are in Latin; "inevitabilis" is an actual word whereas "invitabilis" is not.

    Hello again.

    These tracks should be the right ones:
    Asil (Pt 1) to Asil (part 1)
    Valleyland (Pt 2) to Valleyland (part 2)
    > it is spelled by that way on several websites. Also the album list on last.fm is like that, it was just corrected wrong by anybody. There is also a (part 3) song called Telogen Effluvium (part 3) which wasn't auto-corrected to (pt 3) which should show that it is a wrong way of spelling.

    No Future, Part One to No Future Part One
    > all other 'No Future' Parts are also spelled without that comma.
    > also this is the back cover of the album: http://www.discogs.com/viewimages?release=1473179

    Callejón to Callejon
    > they spell themselves differently from the spanish word; this is confirmed by their website, Wikipedia or their album artworks...

    Thank you very much!

    thanks,

  • What's A Girl To Do shoul be redirected to What's a Girl to Do?
    The Bat's Mouth should redirected to Bat's Mouth

    The Black Horsemen is correcting to Black Horsemen. It's wrong, because band's name is THE Black Horsemen: https://www.facebook.com/ThEBlacKHorsemeN (official page)
    Thanks in advance.

  • Goodbye is redirected to Goodbye (with Soap & Skin), but they both should be redirected to Goodbye (feat. Soap&Skin), as it appears on the album on last.fm.

    Thank you!

    Correct: Who's Ya Daddy?
    incorrect: Who's Ya Daddy
    incorrect: Whos ya daddy?

    Correct: The Dispensation of Life and Death
    incorrect: The Dispensation of Life

    Correct: Beautiful Music for You to Die to
    incorrect: Beautiful Music For You
    incorrect: Beautiful Music For You To Die
    incorrect: Beautiful Music For You To Die For

    Thank you :)

  • I'm scrobbling from Spotify, and the band Unleash The Archers is redirecting here to Unleas The Archers, can this be corrected? There is no such a band as the latter!

    Correct: Your Fucking Head Split
    incorrect: Your Fuckin' Head Split
    incorrect: Your Fuckin Head Split

    Back cover and official youtube page disagrees. The second listed (which has more scrobbles/listeners) is the correct one.

    Also,

    Tiger's Doom is auto-correcting to Tigers Doom which is wrong. Official site and back cover confirms this.

  • Smith Comma John is autocorrecting to SmithCommaJohn. I'm the artist and the latter has for whatever reason became the go-to artist tag, where the former is the correct one.

    Hey guys! I noticed the page for Nathalia keeps getting redirected to Natalia.

    "Nathalia" is a fairly new French singer and actress , you can view more about her here:
    http://nathalia---1789.skyrock.com/
    http://www.1789-leforum.com
    http://www.facebook.com/Nathalia.Officiel


    So there's no need to redirect it to "Natalia" :)

  • Two incorrect autocorrections:

    Jay Gruska - The Villains
    incorrectly autocorrects to
    Jay Gruska - The Villians
    (the CD cover clearly states "The Villains", and it is the theme for the villains in the series)

    Carlo Siliotto - Quentin's Glass Home
    incorrectly autocorrects to
    Carlo Siliotto - Quenton's Glass Home
    (the CD cover clearly states "Quentin's Glass Home", and the character to whom the song refers to is called Quentin)

    Thank you in advance for fixing these :)
