Case by case basis, really. If there's no official title available, then generally the most commonly used (if accurate) title is used.

Usually, yes, but if you're looking for the most accurate/official title, some good spots to check that I use are the Nintendo Wiki, Video Game Music Preservation Foundation, and VGMdb. There's plenty more as well, but sites like these can help when looking for correct titles, composers, and arrangers. Hope this helps!

But how commonly used? If one song title is made up by a YouTube user (i.e. GilvaSunner), it could set off a bunch of remixers to use the same title, making the majority rule biased. If GilvaSunner titled Patched Plains from Kirby: Planet Robobot "Stage 1-1", everyone would believe him. And it's not reliable enough to translate Japanese text in the game's files. It's all conjectural. Official CDs are the most reliable sources we have for English titles. OR the composers. I wouldn't trust Nintendo Wiki, Video Game Music Preservation Foundation, or VGMdb unless I knew they were edited by the direct sources themselves.

If you bothered checking those sites, you'd know that VGMdb only posts actual albums that were released to the public, and VGMPF aims for the most official title when possible. You really ought to use these resources.

Except VGMdb isn't strictly OFFICIAL albums of the original music. It's mildly disappointing to see albums full of remixes and not reliable ones with valuable song titles I want. And VGMPF already contains song titles proved wrong by members of this site; it's also missing quite a few games. No website's perfect, though.

(And for anyone wondering, I used this site for the Super Star track names. Definitely not the most official by any means, but it was the best I could find)

(if accurate)

There's normally at least one source that lists a title that makes logical sense. If all else fails, defer to personal judgement on what sounds clear and concise.

Either that or whichever is more accurate to what the song is used for (i.e. Scaldera/Tentalus (Vulnerable)).

Donkey Kong Country [SNES]
"Bonus Stage Victory Theme" (Replacement) MUS - MUSX - MIDI - PDF - Original
"Gang-Plank Galleon" (Replacement) MUS - MUSX - MIDI - PDF - Original

Fun fact! Even though Donkey Kong Country had an official soundtrack release, the iconic jingle that plays when winning a bonus stage or defeating a boss doesn't have an official name! And as you can tell, I am very, very fine with that. Boy, I am certainly okay with that, yesiree, no problems here! I am livid

Donkey Kong Country [SNES]
"Funky's Fugue" (Replacement) MUS - MUSX - MIDI - PDF - Original - NEW!!

I was originally going to hold off on uploading this one until I got Treetop Rock finished. Buuuuuuut, since that one's probably not getting finished anytime soon, I thought I might as well upload this one while it's still fresh. Get it while it's hot!
