Ideas: Prevent edited versions of songs being played

Status: Open Ideas

I understand that license agreements change and what not, but I don't want to hear edited versions of songs on my stations.  If the only version of a song available is edited then I don't want it played. Also, there should be a feature to only play studio versions of songs; An option to exclude live performances and/or remixes.  These features seem simple enough to implement, why have they not been added?

Why are all my songs edited? I can’t find anything to turn this off. I don’t want edited songs and that’s all that plays

This is really sad that after 4 or so years it is still an issue.  I am the only one among my family and friends that still listens to Pandora.  Don't know how long I'll stick with it.

Here's a specific example.  I love ABBA and have created an ABBA station.  I really hate the movie Mamma Mia, especially their cover songs of great ABBA hits.  If I 'thumb down' any songs from the movie, they are no longer played as originals.

I do wish Pandora would allow a whole album to be cut out of the playlist without affecting the rest of the songs.  This way, we could get rid of covers, crappy live recordings, etc.
