According to the definition given in this article, "background music" refers to the instrumental music in the background. I don't know about what others think, but in my opinion, the vocal songs don't fall into that category. Kerochan no Miko 23:40, 13 May 2007 (MST)

Agreed. On a related side note, I saw the term "background song" in the La Soldier article. Was wondering if I should replace the word "background" with "battle" but thought I'll leave it for someone higher up in position to do anything about it. If vocal songs are gonna be labeled as "background", they should be called background songs. Although it sounds a little weird to me. --Secretss 00:02, 14 May 2007 (MST)
As I stated above, I don't think vocal songs should be called background songs. Sometimes things are the way they are because someone didn't think about it, not because it was a deliberate decision. Also, I'm not quite sure what you're talking about by someone "higher up in position." Sure, I'm a sysop, but this is still a cooperative effort. Kerochan no Miko 00:16, 14 May 2007 (MST)
Ditto. And just to point out that everyone could make errors (I myself make a lot. lol) for various causes: sleepiness, random "short-circuitness" w/i our brains, etc., hence our collaborative work here. ^^ --210 02:20, 14 May 2007 (MST)
Agreed. As far as I know, any vocal tracks that come up "in the background" (ie. under dialogue) have been released as full vocal tracks in the albums for the series. Thus, although they are indeed "in the background", they are not the same as BGM tracks. Background music tracks are made purposefully to evoke particular emotions in the viewer that want to be emphasized from the scene. Vocal tracks are not made with this specific purpose. They sometimes have the same effect though, which is why they are used instead of writing another BGM track. Yay for cost efficiency. --Diagnosed 12:30, 20 November 2007 (MST)

Also, what should we be adding here? There's a list of BGM tracks that can easily be procured from sources like SailorMusic, but I'm having a hard time finding the credits for the composers and the orchestras (or sinth-players in some cases XD) that play these tracks. Also, should we match them to episode occurances? They're recycled quite a bit, so maybe just a few example scenes would suffice. --Diagnosed 12:35, 20 November 2007 (MST)

You don't need to add the complete contents at once - you may just add what you've got ATM. --210 18:49, 20 November 2007 (MST)
