if it’s the same song, it should be the same songname – with generally is how it’s named on the album. please read the comments in this thread for clarification

I want to weigh in on early versions of songs that feature different lyrics. If the early lyrics significantly change the song, I think the early song name should be used with an @Info note that it eventually became another song. The example that made me look into this issue is Weezer's "Love Explosion" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cICeZGuxYJI), which was played at a show I attended as "Do You Want Me to Stay" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nwJgfdgsVIA). In addition to minor lyrical variations, the fact that the refrain is "do you want me to stay" instead of "give me a kiss" makes these 2 different songs in my opinion. Would love to hear the admins' thoughts on this.
