I need to quote a song from Youtube. I don't own the song and the artist who sings it hasn't put an official version on YT.
How should I do this? It needs to be in MLA form.
This is the song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wCl01AkVnMo
You can cite it just as you would any other online video:
Author. "Title of Web Page." Title of the Site. Editor. Date and/or Version Number. Name of Sponsoring Institution. Date of Access
Or, you may choose to cite it as a film or video recording and put the emphasis on the performer:
Last, First Name, their participation. Title. Dir. First Last name. Distributor, year of distribution. Medium.
Or, better yet, ask your instructor for guidance on how they would like that particular citation formatted.
