    Well link the pages together.

    Dave AuJus:

    We have a similar page already:

    www.madmusic.com/artist_details.aspx?ArtistID=2607

    Halfshell:

    Than I would suggest a page with artist "The Flintstones Original Cartoon Cast" and list the names of actors/actresses in the info box.

     

    That page would hold any cartoon soundtrack release or clips from the cartoon itself.

    I couldn't find anything at ASCAP or BMI.

    You are so right that when you split up the Title and the Artist for the database they don't always make sense when doing a search.

    Thanks Stavro.

    Meet The Flintstones -

    a) Alan Reed, Mel Blanc, Jean Vander Pyl, Bea Benederet (Original TV Voices)

    b) Original TV Voices (Alan Reed, Mel Blanc, Jean Vander Pyl, Bea Benederet)

    Either of these works for me.

    Halfshell suggested "The Flintstones Cast" so maybe:

    The Flinstones Cast (Alan Reed, Mel Blanc, Jean Vander Pyl, Bea Benederet)

    I wasn't suggesting the artist be 'TV Theme', just that themes can have numerous different artists covering (& sometimes parodying) it.

    As a general
    rule, if something's etched in vinyl, that's what you go by. If there are multiple releases of the same track, you go by whatever was first. Just make
    sure to add the image you found to the page.

    If you really want to get anal about it, you can do what I do & try to find the track in the repertory sections of the ASCAP and/or BMI sites. www.ascap.com/repertory - www.bmi.com/

     You can really nail it down if both sites agree on the titles/artists.

    In
    this case, "Original TV Voices" wouldn't sound relevant to anything as a
    title for an artist page, so it's ok to add some brief relevance in
    parenthesis after the name - in this case, "The Flintstones", all the artist names or whatever
    - just as long as whoever sees the page gets the idea. That's the important bit.

    As a general rule, if something's etched in vinyl, that's what you go by. Even if it sounds stupid. Someone might want a track for a show and what with the new rules requiring an artist on the playlist, what appears stupid on an artist page might be in context on a playlist. If there are multiple releases of the same track, you go by whatever was first. Just make sure to add the image you found to the page.

    We are pretty sure the title is Meet The Flintstones  and the artist is not TV Theme.

    We need to determine if the artist should be:

    a) Original TV Voices  like on the 78 label

    b) Alan Reed, Mel Blanc, Jean Vander Pyl, Bea Benederet

    c) or something else

    Stavro Arrgolus   Offline  -  Editor, MP3  -  08-09-17 09:28 PM  -  2 years ago

    A TV theme is always a TV theme no matter who performs it. We've quite a few examples of it...like this, for example - www.madmusic.com/song_details.aspx?SongID=58084 It's still called "The Munsters".

    Then there's Weird Al's take on the "George of the Jungle" theme. And all those covers of Neil Hefti's Batman theme.

    As for what to call the artists, if they're not a 'band' in any sense, then just use the individual names. Like this: www.madmusic.com/artist_details.aspx?ArtistID=2022 If there's something unique about them (like a TV theme sung by the original character voice artists), it can go under 'facts'.

    If an artist does one of these themes and they also appear elsewhere in the archive, make sure the names are in the member boxes of both artist pages and the pages will link with an auto-added 'see also' box on the pages. Just make sure the names in the boxes are precisely the same or it won't link.

    If i get the actors names to this song can it be moved to their page?

     

    This isn't an "early version" of the song but a novelty record from the voice actors that did the voices and released a 45 children's record.

    They sound like the same song, licensed to more than one record company to increase sales.

    YouTube gets a lot of different versions of the same songs posted by different people.

    So everyone is technically correct on this one. We need the editor to make the final decision.

    Thanks to everyone for your input on this.

    Dan C:

    I'm guessing one is the single edit release and the other the album version? But is it still considered a tv theme song? Or a stand alone song?


    Dave AuJus:

    And then I found this:

    Meet the Flintstones ALAN REED MEL BLANC JEAN VANDER PYL BEA BENEDERET

    Dave AuJus:

    OK gang here we go:

    www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNDK7drbUCU

    This is what DJ Darren says he played. Sounds like a match to me.

    The video is 2 songs (both sides of the 78).

    So if the artist still needs to be changed, should it be "Original TV Voices" ?

    We weren't sure on this one since it was the Flintstones theme just sung by the actual voice actors.

    Yeah, I don't think that is the TV theme song. DaveAUJus can you fix it.
