  • Songs that have been featured in Ice Age films need articles on their own.
  • Score songs (instrumental arrangements made only for one film) shouldn't, they will go in the track listing for the soundtrack.
  • Add a video to the wiki and with the {{song}} template add it to the article.
  • Videos should preferably be from YouTube and contain the official video for the song, but if for example, the song was remade/covered specially for the film, the video should have the song that was in the film as is. (Example: Walk the Dinosaur, Food, Glorious Food.
  • Due to legal reasons, we ask that song lyrics not be added to articles.
  • A small back story of the album story/musical artist should be added if available.
