You know, I seriously doubt including the composers and musical name makes any sense here. So I left them out.

The article looks really, really cluttered now. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Kleaver (talk • contribs).

OK, the name of the musical can go, but every other song on the site includes the name(s) of the composer, although admittedly, it's usually in a background note. Why should this one be any different? -- Bridge 13:37, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Well I think only if the composer is named in the episode it should be included. --Kleaver 14:30, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

The composer should only be noted in the main text if they're mentioned. Otherwise, we should give credit where due, especially if we're quoting some lyrics or putting up sound snippets. -- Sulfur 14:38, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

First, since this entry is about the song, ordinary courtesy and academic practice would recommend including the composer(s), year, and a brief mention of any other interesting data (notably, for most songs of the Great American Songbook to which this belongs, the musical in which it made its debut).

Second, as an interesting bit of background information, the musical director for Voyager commented in one of the "special features" on a series DVD -- unfortunately I don't have the exact reference; any help would be appreciated -- that the ST series generally paid more attention (and therefore $) to music than any other TV series he'd worked with. If you listen closely, in the Voyager episode of the same name, when the Doctor and Seven dance, the first twelve or so bars of this song are pretty much straight piano, but when they move closer and the Doctor closes his eyes just before the fadeout, violins come in softly. This was not a pull from a canned library; it was specifically arranged and performed for this episode -- thus making powerfully the music director's point. -- Craig Goodrich 68.58.135.168 00:33, 29 September 2008 (UTC)
