    @TJONO Its bad enough that forms like Classical & Orchestral & Chamber Music put the composer in the "Artist" field, as IMHO that is stupid, and annoying as 2 different recordings of a work with different orchestras and conductors will sound very different . I really don't want that spreading to other forms of music thank you! The tags on Last.FM are messy enough as it is. Of course it would have helped if Last.FM dind't base their database on the limited and outdated CDDB/FreeDB format.

    @Noxbi: That would probably be the most *correct* way to do it, and the way I would do it if it weren't for my dislike of "feat." in a tag (hey we all have our quirky hangups). @hermenne: Analogy fail. It may not have been clear from my shout below, but Jonathan Coulton is one of two performers of this song. It's not like Mclain is covering Coulton. How would you have tagged a Beatles song where everyone in the Beatles were playing but they had a guest vocalist?

    @TJOHO and @herrnenne... so maybe we should tag it like artist: Jonathan Coulton, track: "Still Alive (feat. Ellen Mclain)" [for a version with Ellen], "Still Alive" [for a version where he sings himself] and "Want You Gone (feat. Ellen Mclain)"?

    The full version of the opera will most likely be in volume 3, since it seems volume 1 pretty much has songs from the very beginning of the game. Volume 2 will probably have the middle, and 3 will have the end.

    The more common and in my opinion correct artist tagging for "Still Alive" and "Want You Gone" is Jonathan Coulton. Yes, she is the singer, and an amazing voice actor as GLaDOS, but Coulton wrote, arranged, and recorded the songs.

    I hope they release a full version of Exile Vilify, it's too great of an awesome song to be so short. I'd definitely give all of my money for it.

    Singer Ellen McLain Similar to Lyudmila Sechina, She lives in Nashville, Texas, USA She sings in perfect bel canto, She makes a cake Prescription, which gave her GLaDOS ... It's not a lie. Andrew lives in Efremov, He sings at night in a tavern, Where does not go Ellen McLain, Because she Dines in restaurants a class above And never was in Efremov She hardly find This city on the map. In Efremov only Hina Chlek, Who can not sing at all, Who dedicate poems, Although she does not matter. It remains only to get drunk And to see happy dreams, That in Efremov coming Ellen McLain And give a solo concert ...
