[edit] Links

Given that some of the titles can be a touch esoteric, perhaps we aught to link to the toon where the song first appeared, especially in the case of background songs. Guybrush20X6 10:54, 11 April 2020 (UTC)

Hence the stub tags. The creator's idea was to transcribe the lyrics below the table, and have the table link to the lyrics, according to her edit summary. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 19:40, 11 April 2020 (UTC)
Actually, since a lot of these don't have lyrics, and the ones that do are already transcribed elsewhere, maybe we can just add a "Description" column on each table with context and additional information, like "This is the theme that plays during the title sequence of 3 Times Halloween Funjob". We can still do transcripts for original stuff, like the Stinkoman theme (at least the part that wasn't played here) and the extra sbemail intro. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 19:50, 12 April 2020 (UTC)
I don't think a description column is necessary. The track titles are self-explanatory. The link to the relevant source toon should provide sufficient context for the more obscure ones. -- 20:12, 12 April 2020 (UTC)
To be honest, something bothers me about having only a piped link in some of these. Perhaps it's just that the list seems sparse without a description column, or perhaps it's an unnatural aversion to "mystery meat" linking, but there are also some like "Cheweh Cheweh" that aren't obvious even with the link. And even though some song titles make it obvious which toon the song comes from, a description could still be helpful for readers in pinpointing what part of the toon the song comes from.

I agree on adding an additional column, especially since some of the songs in the album either have additional parts or are a combination of two or three songs (like Valentimes having Tech-no-logical Romance at the end) Guybrush20X6 20:58, 12 April 2020 (UTC)
I split the title column into title and source columns. I also added a column for notes. — It's dot com 18:18, 13 April 2020 (UTC)
