We have these two tags; and . Music's tag wiki states:

For questions relating to the soundtrack of a movie, use this tag for questions regarding the musical score or other music that appears in a movie.

Soundtrack's tag wiki states:

Questions related to sound and music recorded for a motion picture or television show.

These two tags are for the same thing. Would it be possible to merge into , or as an alternative, synonym to ?

1 Answer 1


Doing a brief overview of both tags, I don't see a reason why they shouldn't be merged.

    While I generally agree with the proposal, there might still be marginal questions e.g. about the usage of certain music as a symbol or plot-element and its impact on the story while the usage of the music is rather "in-movie" and might not be regarded soundtrack. But Ok, in this case music might not be justified either, being the specific type of movie-content, for which tags are discouraged anyway.

    If the question is about the use of certain music as a plot element, this would still make up part of the soundtrack of the movie.
