    Original Cast

    Are there any plans for Last.fm to fix the misclassification of "Original Cast," "Original London Cast," and "Original Broadway Cast," as artists? Given the number of users affected (see the numbers of listeners listed under each), I think it a bit unfair to expect last.fm users to be the ones to provide the fix, as suggested. And I also think that most people who listen to musicals would prefer to have the musical listed in this field rather than the artist, as you suggest.

    See: http://www.last.fm/music/Original+Broadway+Cast, http://www.last.fm/music/Original+london+Cast and http://www.last.fm/music/Original+Cast.

    It's ridiculous that this track, for example, does not include "Phantom of the Opera" as part of the last.fm supplied tags.

    Last.fm have several ways to try to fix incorrect tags. You might notice the "Is this artist name wrong or misspelt? Suggest a correction." in the right column of artist and tracks.

    But there is only so much we can do so it is actually the users themselves that need to make sure that their tags are at least reasonably correct.

    Please do yourself and Last.fm a favour and fix your tags. The easiest way is to use Musicbrainz Picard.

    Not to be confused with The Original Caste ... one tin scrobbler sneaks away ...

    Improve your view of Last.fm - add some User Scripts.
    Did I hear that right? Mondegreens - for the misheard word. Like Odds? Can't get better than Even Odds!

    Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.

    I've seen so many errors regarding artist tags and just like Wordwoman says:

    as I've also seen that there are a huge amount of users that frankly don't care about the right artist tags, looking at the amount of scrobbles of these clearly wrong tags. And when you try to start an open and respectful discussion about these "artists", you get spammed by these users for being "such a d(ck" :( Almost to a point where I give up hope for the Last.fm system. But for now, I keep the faith.
