Explanatory notes for the Songs table columns.

dbopm uses the term "song" generically to include any musical work.
Song Id
Unique identifier of the song. Specific to dbopm.
Song Title
Self-explanatory. But note that, internally, dbopm makes a distinction between a title "prefix" and a title "body", which enables a more logical sort sequence.
A title "prefix" would typically be a leading article ("A", "An", "The", and their foreign language equivalents).
Author(s)
Author(s) of the song's words, if any. Also referred to as "lyricist(s)".
Composer(s)
Composer(s) of the song's music.
Note that composer and author names are not listed in any particular order. For example: Listing composers as "Elvis Costello/Burt Bacharach" does not imply that Costello is the primary composer.
Country
Country of origin of the copyright in the song.
Year
Year of registration of the copyright in the song.
