      Description

      wiki explanation: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Musical_quotation

      Covers relationships between works (or recordings) that directly "quote" musical parts of other works, while being distinct from "covers", "based on", "samples", "variation/arrangement of", etc. "Based on" generally implies the entire work is based on another, while "samples" uses the original recording. This may include lyrics as well, but should only be used if intent is obvious & specific- perhaps "refers to" would be better suited for lyrics that mention, but don't actually quote verbatim, other works (i.e. The Beatles' "Glass Onion" refers to "Strawberry Fields Forever", "I Am the Walrus", etc., Megadeth's "Victory" similarly refers to multiple earlier Megadeth song titles). Or maybe make that a sub-checkbox?

      If recording-work ARs are included, there should probably be some criteria to determine when to use 'quote' versus 'partial cover of' (most likely length of quoted work, e.g. a single riff/line would use 'quote' where a verse/chorus or more would be 'partial cover' or 'medley').
