If I have a song with a 'featuring' does it go in the artist or the song field?



eg:


Eminem Ft. Lil Wayne - No Love


OR


Eminem - No Love Ft Lil Wayne





My music library needs this clarification to keep it uniform!

100% serious.


My library needs to take one turn, it can't be a mix of both!

Always title.
I hate having loads of different categories when searching for all songs by a certain artist on my iPod. Barely ever search for songs by the featured artist and want a song they featured in..

This was my thought when I initially adopted the title option, I am having doubts though

Artist sounds more right to me, looks right to but if you have an ipod it has to go in the song part or you end up with a massive mess.
I'd type my pc specs out all fancy again but teh mods would remove it. Again.

Yeah, its song title.  Else your artist/album divisions will be all messed up

To put it clearer, if i'm searching for that Eminem song, I won't want to look for it under lil-wayne, and I has to be grouped with Eminem otherwise it fucks me off if I want to shuffle all Eminem songs but it won't use the ones with featured artists.
Unless I search for all songs with the word Eminem associated.. but I never do that.

I always put it in the song title. Makes it easier when sorting or filtering by artists, and keep the file structure organized. Also good that I don't have to mark things as compilations when it's really the same artist who happened to have a few people sing on some tracks.

I place it with the artist, always. Hasn´t let me down yet. I search for specific songs mostly though, so there isn´t much confusion giong on.

100% of my library is

"Song Title (feat. Artist 2)" - Artist 1

The lowercase "f", the ".", and the brackets are all important.

I use brackets for remixes.

I worked out how to make compilation albums on itunes once... Then everything was sorta fine. But then it changed and I haven't worked out how to do it since, have only got one song on here since my hdd failed anyway.

How about when Artist 1 "presents" Artist 2?

"Artist 1 pres. Artist 2" ?
"Artist 1 Presents Artist 2" ?
just plain old "Artist 2" ?

Neither.

With ID3v2 tags I put in Album Artist as the overall artist, and then I put the "feat Whoever" in the Artist tag. That way my Zune shows me one artist for the full album, but multiple artists for a single song when it's playing.

Song title, otherwise when I scroll through artists I'd get Artist1,  Artist1 ft. Artist2, Artist1 ft. Artist3, Artist1 ft Artist4, etc..

Zimm's way would probably be best case, but I cba, and I dont even know if my iphone would sort that correctly

Pretty easy with the app Tag&Rename tbh.

It's brilliant for compilations like Warp20 or Dark Was The Night where it's various artists. I put "Various Artists" as Album Artist and then the individual artists as Artist. Works a treat.
