Song note is a simple text field that allows the DJ to attach any arbitrary text to the song. Use of the field is optional and it can be disabled.
The note is associated with the instance of the song in a playlist. So each time a song is played, the DJ can add his or her own notes independently of all others.
Song note is useful for a wide variety of things including…
- List performers of a classical piece
- Note that it is the artist's birthday today
- Mention the appearance of a noteworthy artist on the recording
- Indicate when the song was first composed
Since they appear in the public playlist web pages, song notes are a nice way for DJs to communicate with listeners.
Disabling the Song note field removes it from the playlist entry form and prevents its use.
