Which is correct?


Quote :

OR


Quote :

With titles, song names, etc., do you capitalize "of," "the" and such?  I've read opposing opinions and am curious what folks here think...

Articles (of, the, etc.) are typically not capitalized, but in this case, I think Fundy is right because "The Kingdom" refers to a specific kingdom (the Kingdom of God) and not just a generic kingdom.  Then again, I'm not sure how I have avoided using the "Walken Comma" throughout, so don't trust my grammar perspectives.

Technically, both are acceptable as a title.

Like the title of a book the title of an album should be capitalized. But I barely passed 8th grade English so what do I know? Lol

I went through this when I was starting to rip all my CDs and I settled on option two just for simplicity...

I've been known to do both options depending on my mood that day.

Also, if we are talking proper written formats, it should also be italicized.

My problem (when adding to my digital music collection) wasn't titles. I had a pretty good sense of the rules for that. Instead it was stylized band names. Is it really "ApologetiX" or is that just the way they like it to look on the cover? Is "LEAH" really just Leah trying to look punchier in the promo materials? Kind of abstract, but it does affect the way my music collection gets sorted and grouped, so I wanted to be consistent one way or the other.

Thanks all!  Some good input here.

That's what I have been doing mostly as well, though it seems that this is less common.

And then there are some of those Europeans who ONLY capitalize the first word (and proper nouns of course).  Sigh...

It all depends on the referencing system you use. The important thing is to be consistent. In the US, the most common style is APA where you'd write Sardonyx - Sons of the Kingdom or better yet, Sardonyx: Sons of the Kingdom. As for capitalizing "The," I don't think I've ever seen it capitalized in the Bible so I wonder if it's necessary.
