Review of revision 4366184 [Passed][edit]


@Acagastya: We really should have been hashing this out on the collaboration page rather than edit summaries, I suppose. The difficulty I see is that, although we're clear that when naming the song we should use italics, here we aren't naming the song; we're talking about the name of the song. The name of the song is "Helter Skelter". A further awkwardness is that, iirc, one of the sources noted the name was misspelled, so what was written was (I think) "Healter Skelter"; although if one were being hyper-precise, I think they at least sometimes wrote "pigs" rather than "pig". So it's not really correct to say that Helter Skelter is the name of a song, but it's also not perfectly precise to say that "Helter Skelter" was written at the scene(s), unless of course it was sometimes written correctly and sometimes incorrectly. --Pi zero (talk) 11:47, 23 November 2017 (UTC)
