In a nutshell: Must a song be available for download or can songs be catalogued in MusicBrainz even if they are only provided in a streamable format?
I think I agree(though I’m still confused and have some self-doubt whether that’s the case) after watching this Youtube video “MINE DIAMONDS | miNECRAFT PARODY OF TAKE ON ME” which has 7,308,310 views. I cannot understand how that video got so popular. The Youtube user has 243 thousand subscribers. Just a wild guess: Personally I think that the song is more notable than my song SummerChocolate. It is based on a notable song which I assume makes the cover also notable. What do you think, I’m interested in feedback here.
So basically, these songs exist in a streamable format on Youtube but would it be appropriate for them to also appear and being described on MusicBrainz given that some Editor thinks it is worth their time(for whatever reason they chose it is worth their time) and would it be appropriate for the Youtube user to be described as an artist on MusicBrainz?
Again, just brainstorming. I’m looking for feedback by anybody who wants to contribute their opinions. Thank you
