comment Is Capitalising Every Word more common in music titles?
I'm aware that there are lots of different styles, and recommendations about Title Case, but I'm asking why I seem to see more Capitalisation On Every Word in music as opposed to other areas. A detailed answer for others who need to reference this, though; thanks.

comment In the context of family, what is the opposite of “immediate”?
Extended can carry the connotation of including both immediate and distant family, so for a true opposite, Brian Hooper's answer is actually better.

comment “[Noun] upon [noun]” — singular or plural?
It's a compound construction - the sentence is only considering a single rank, strictly, but the structure is a rank of theologians. That is certainly not plural.

comment Is “you've coming from” a colloquialism?
I agree; the lyrics sites are hazy on which is actually sung. The original album sounds very much like "you've", while Eoghan Quigg sang "you're" on X Factor. I would therefore happily dismiss this as a quirk of the recording, but for the number of covers and other versions performed where "you've" is clearly sung.
