Talk:I've Got A

From This Might Be A Wiki

I don't like this theme[edit]

I am fine with the I Am, simply because it's interesting that TMBG's character-study songwriting habits comes across in the song-naming selection (the Briefly Mentioned part is a little more pointless). However, "I've Got A" is not only less interesting, but there are only three cases of it being in the title or even of note. So, yeah. Does anyone agree with me enough to want to delete it? ~ magbatz 18:42, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

I agreeeee-ee-eeeee. --Valerie 21:17, 19 March 2008 (UTC)
Hate to say it, man, but I like this page alot. I'm actually quite surprised how many songs do so directly say "I've Got A" in one form or another. It's kinda cool. Maybe this page could be mated with the I Am page in some meaningful way. However I personally don't want to see this get erased entirely. --Luke 21:55, 19 March 2008 (UTC)
Well then if the information is relevant to somebody, then it's worthwhile. Even if I don't like it!! As for mating it with I Am, there could probably be some way, if you want to pursue that. ~ magbatz 23:09, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

I actually like this article. I'd never noticed how many of their songs have this phrasing. I'm for keeping it. --Lemita 23:34, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

Me too. -- Buzzmusic100 ("Keep your voice down...")

Also, interestingly, one third of the songs by TMBG that feature the phrase were improvisational/live tunes. ~ magbatz 23:52, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

Oh, we'll, you've got a point... maybe that's why we should consider this for deletion then... --Lemita 16:34, 20 March 2008 (UTC)
<_< I'll work on a merge with I Am today. --Luke 16:53, 20 March 2008 (UTC)
I think the theme is fine. But more importantly, I don't see how this relates to "I Am" at all. Why would you merge them? They are completely unrelated. (And 30% is less than one third.) --badqueso 20:14, 20 March 2008 (UTC)
True, but 30% is less than 3/9. (I tried making my sentence imply songs with lyrics created by TMBG: "Swings" doesn't fall into that category.) ~ magbatz 01:00, 21 March 2008 (UTC)
Sounds good to me. --Luke 21:31, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

Hey Antgeth, can we toss this one too?[edit]

This one seems just as stupid as I Am, as does Guy Songs. Is anyone else willing to oust this page from the wiki?--You&Me!! (talk) 17:46, 31 May 2022 (EDT)

I agree about Guy Songs, but IMO "I've got a" is a more stylistically unique phrase. --ColorOfInfinity (talk) 18:40, 31 May 2022 (EDT)
If someone is there standing up for it, I won't fight them. But let's get Guy Songs.--You&Me!! (talk) 07:40, 1 June 2022 (EDT)
User:Nehushtan (who created Guy Songs) has already said on the talk page that he's OK with it being deleted. --ColorOfInfinity (talk) 20:35, 1 June 2022 (EDT)
