Prompted by duranorak's recent post, something I've been toying with for a while: The Genrelizer.|
Let me know if I've missed any genres...
(If you want to add multiple groups/songs to any genre - and please do - just take the survey again, filling in only the new entries)
Please read the top of that page before you fill it out!
I don't quite know what you're doing here but there is some dodginess in the genre list you have.
(Glaring) Point 1: you have Genre "Other".
Point 2: some genre names get re-used - is "Hardcore" particularly aggressive punk, or acid house with breakbeats and cheesy samples? Is Jungle fast breakbeats and MCing, or a type of Jazz from the 20s? (really!)
Point 3: with a list that long, I think you need the concept of genre-subclassing - e.g. Euro-Techno subclasses Techno subclasses Dance. And so on.
As stated, those are the ID3 genres, deliberately unedited. Yes, I know it's a daft list, but that's what you get...
Since the point of the exercise is to find out how people define these genres and/or the music therein, I'm not going to clarify terms, or define them by placing them in a hierarchy.
What? You want me to read?
And, that's a point, can I edit my own things, or when I go to fill things in again will they come up twice? I'd like to put some specific songs in, but not if it's going to mean the bands coming up twice...
Sorry. Shush now. Sorry.
i did it in a rush and probably entered a load of rubbish.
I did notice we both agreed on Gothic Rock.
That brightened my day no end :)
Don't think I've seen anything I've disagreed with. And I noticed we agreed on Gothic Rock too. Because you guys are wonderful. :)
thank you. *Grin*
that little comment will help me survive the last hour and a half of work :)
Not with the way it's currently written, it's just a quick hack for my curiosity.
Mkay. I shall be needlessly pedantic and snarky in my journal then. :)
Oh, don't look like that - it's music, I can't help it.
