    Default The correct way to "cite" songs

    I was checking out some play lists the other day in the forums and i starting wondering about the correct way to "cite" songs when you are playing 2 or more songs at once. Does one usually actually include this info in the track list i.e.
    Song A
    Song B
    Song C/Song D
    Song E
    etc..

    or is it just assumed and one should just list all the tracks used individually and let the listener sort it out?

    theres one case where i have a loop playing and then another then i play the rest of the looped song when the other song is done

    so what i would do is something like

    pitbull- calle ocho/lmfao- im in miami
    pitbull- calle ocho
    next song

    for an example, listen to the first 10 minutes or so of the mix in my sig

    personally i think that's unnecessary - looks messy and crowded, not to mention confusing to the listener.

    i've been copping pro mixtapes since forever and the only time i ever see that is when djs are using acapellas... even still, usually they just list them in order of appearance rather than side by side like that.

    Order of appearance for me. If a song sample or short loop of a song is played after it previously played I won't mention it.

    Yeah, just order of appearance, or I put it in as a mashup if that's how I ended up spinning it with the "vs" thing
    It's the FAQ. Read it.

    order or play simple, people can work out when a track changes, it's not that hard to listen to mix and go track one two three and follow the track listing, even if i do run tracks cocurrently with each other sometimes it will eventually change lol

    hmmmm, its more for songs that i would be playing from pretty much start to finish in unison but in all the track listings i've ever seen, i've not once seen someone do the Song A/Song B listing. And that seems to be the general consensus...even though it makes sense to list them A/B to me, looks like nobody actually does this.
