    @Stichey I have actually. I agree that ideally Last.fm would separate the two, but I like how the guy from the "real" Disneyland says "pineapple." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nbg4H2CnWU4

    Just checking to see if ANYONE has recently listened to the band listed for "Disneyland" that is supposedly more important than fans of the theme park's music connecting. And, like always, NO ONE IS LISTENING to that band, but thank heavens that Last FM's clean stats are more important than the people using the service to connect and share their love of music. Hopefully one day an actual picture of Disneyland can be allowed to replace this woefully obscure band that is never played.

    I listed this on the Walt Disney World page, but it still seems appropriate for the Disneyland page (despite the obscure band listed that NEVER seems to have songs scrobbled for them). So, here goes: Why is it that the statistical integrity of Last FM is more important than the community? It seemed as if Last FM was going to stop most of the draconian hassles around Disney music (lame pictures, constant encouragement to use sources that often don't well provide artist info, etc.) in order to stop dissuading people from tagging it in the manner that feels the most appropriate to them, but it doesn't seem like anything has changed in the last year. It would be really nice - especially in terms of Disney music - if Last FM could switch its focus onto what's best for the user base and not what's best for the stats being accrued.

    Thanks for reposting my comment, Scrubbles! If you're interested, "Maddieman" of LastFM said that there is hope on the way when replied to my feedback posted last year within this forum thread: http://www.last.fm/forum/21717/_/2050952/1 Hopefully this gets cleaned up soon as I find that I now RARELY PLAY Disneyland tracks since they are being scored for this band and not really connecting me to others that adore the park music as much as I do!

    As someone that LOVES Last FM, it is brutal that no solution has been provided for how to tag Disneyland park soundtracks without all of the lame pictures and accusations of bad tags (and suggesting Music Brainz is worthless as most Disneyland sountrack albums have UNKNOWN in the title which seems to do little to "keep tags clean." And now, instead of having a connection to all of the other park music enthusiasts, we're all forced to create our own tags which seems like it will only make things worse instead of better. [3]

    And what about tracks that are essentially field recordings of attraction ride-throughs? VARIOUS ARTISTS? ANONYMOUS? I don't think so.

    May 2012
  • Stichey

    In fact, if Last Fm can auto-correct track names, why can't they auto-correct this tag for people? You would think that it would be SIMPLE to know when a Disneyland park track is being played instead of what, I would expect, is the VERY LIMITED song list for the band referenced above.

  • Stichey

    And that's a great point too - who determines what's wrong with certain tags and why don't they work with the individuals towards a good solution instead of something like this situation where it's only going to get worse because now people will be inventing tags, since it is near impossible to get Artist info for most of these theme park track, to use in order to match other enthusiasts? It would be nice if whomever keeps deleting the Disneyland photo file could actually work with us towards a solution.

    Are you kidding? "Disneyland" is much more descriptive than "Various Artists"

    December 2011
  • Stichey

    In regards to the suggestion that "architecture can't create music," I don't see how "Unknown" or "Various Artists" is better than marking it as "Disneyland." When listening to "Sounds from Toontown" or "Sounds from Matterhorn Mountain," it seems much better to just use "Disneyland" rather than "Disney Imagineering" or some other fabrication. While I'm all for properly attributing an artist, there are times when it can be near impossible to obtain the needed info for these kinds of cases.

    Last time I checked, the album I was listening to was called A Musical History of Disneyland

    March 2011
  • liftarn

    Well, the album is actually called "The Official Album: The Music of Disneyland, Walt Disney World & Epcot" and the actual artists are listed at http://musicbrainz.org/release/2462b5d6-3446-437e-b3a4-f585de7a7317.html

    I wish Last.fm would stop trying to force its users to conform to one set idea of what is a valid artist name. Disneyland (with the capital letter D) IS the correct artist (at least as far as I and many others are concerned), and I find the ugly image above and the typo in the title to be highly offensive. Several of my albums are titled "The Music of Disneyland" or something to that nature. It's not the music of Joe Blow written for Disneyland--it's music written especially for the park, and that's the proper credit. I will never change the tag to some random composer's name, because when I want to listen to Disneyland music, that's what I look for. When I want to find others with similar interests, that's what I search for. So there. :-) [3]

    A collection of songs, recordings, and sound bites from the Disneyland Resort. A short biographical summary (via Wikipedia): “Disneyland is an American theme park located in Anaheim, California, owned and operated by the Walt Disney Parks and Resorts division of The Walt Disney Company. It was dedicated with a televised press preview on July 17, 1955, and opened to the general public on July 18, 1955. Disneyland holds the distinction of being the only theme park to be designed and built under the direct supervision of Walt Disney himself. In 1998, the theme park was re-branded “Disneyland Park” to distinguish it from the larger Disneyland Resort complex. Disneyland has the most cumulative attendance of any theme park in the World, with close to 600 million guests since July 18th, 1955. In 2009, 15.9 million people visited the park making it the second most visited park in the World during that calendar year.”

    Theme parks are inanimate objects, they are incapable of composing music.
