I have noticed that many pages offering MIDI files have song titles with wrong capitalization. Hopefully, this page will help keep your page from being one of those.
1. The first and last words are always capitalized, and all except the words listed below are capitalized.
2. These are lower-case, unless they are the first word or last word.
- articles: a, an, the
- conjunctions: and, but, or, nor
- prepositions that are less than five letters long: at, by, for, from, in, into, of, off, on, onto, out, over, to, up, with
- as (only if it is followed by a noun)
3. Prepositions are sometimes capitalized.
- Prepositions are capitalized when they are the first or last word.
- Prepositions that are part of two-word "phrasal verbs" (Come On, Hold On, etc....) are capitalized.
- Prepositions that are over four letters long. (across, after, among, beyond, ...)
4. These short words are capitalized.
Some people occasionally forget to capitalize these.
- also, be, if, than, that, thus, when
- as (if it is followed by a verb)

These are some phrases in which the preposition needs to be capitalized.
