Thumbs apply to alternate (unthumbed) versions

Diamond in the Rough

I never thumbs up the live version of this song, yet it's showing that I did.

Here is the studio version that I had thumbed up.

BTW, would you rather that I keep all reports of this nature in one topic?

@icleymur I moved your post over to this thread since you are running into a similar issue.

I definitely understand your frustration with this.

To explain what is happening, we may substitute one version of a song with another version of the same song that has what is called “interactive rights.”

This helps us to maximize your playback experience by allowing you to replay it, and by making the song available for offline listening.

We understand that some of these substitutions may not be ideal. Rest assured that we are continuously working on increasing the amount of songs in our library that have interactive rights, and really appreciate your patience in the interim.

Hope this helps explain.

@blues-sevenfold Sorry for the trouble - you can report any additional instances of this in this thread. 

I'd be happy to look into this further - please follow up with:

  • The name of the station the issue appeared on
  • Screenshot of incorrect song with thumb rating playing in your station (if possible)

Thanks for all your help with this!

Okay, I found another one. This version of Diamonds at Your Feet by Muddy Waters is very scratchy, and is not the one that I initially thumbed up. Here is the version that I initially thumbed up (and is added to my collection).

Thanks!! 🙂

Here's another one. This is a live version. Here is the studio version that I initially thumbed up.

How to flag live or reworked songs identified as the original song title?

Underground

Is there a post to identify tracks that are labeled as the original song title, so Pandora ends up playing those instead of the original.  Normally those tracks are labeled like (live), (reworked version) or even (re-recorded version).  I just had "Song of the troubled one" by Amorphis come on like that for instance and I remember one one of my other playlists I kept getting the re-recorded version of "I want to know what love is" by Foreigner instead of the original version, no offense but the original version is preferable.  Somewhere to flag these kinds of tracks would be helpful since I don't want to thumbs down the version as it would probably also cause the original version (should it ever get played) to never be played.  Thanks!

@jotun I moved your post to this thread to keep the community tidy.

Check out @AlyssaPandora's post above for some tips to prevent live or remixed versions of tracks from playing on your station.

Hope this helps!

That seems all well and good but like in the case of their Foreigner song I mentioned above, I originally thumbs up the studio version but then later Pandora substituted the re-recorded version in it's place, what do I do in that sort of scenario?  Live songs and remixes in my playlists are fine, I just don't want them taking up the play slots for the studio versions.

I understand what your saying but when your not substituting the same song then that's an error, the reworked version should be identified as such because it's not really a substitute but a completely different work.
