I came across this problem when building music playlists on my phone. Some music blends or leaks into other genres and then there’s some that I can’t even categorize. It’s becoming so confusing. All I want to do is build perfectly organized playlists
Example? Well, I got really into country once. I was jamming for more than a hot second and this was when Need You Now was hot and some other songs and artists I no longer remember by name. My absolute favorite was Trace Atkins and Blake Shelton’s Hillbilly Bone. I think I still know it word for word lol. But I stopped when it clicked in my head: this doesn’t really sound like the country I thought I knew. This sounds like rock! I actually felt kinda betrayed. I was genuinely hurt.
What happened to country music and when did it happen?
Also, what do you do when you’re trying to put your music library in categories or is that a problem that only I deal with?
Btw, I’m getting the hang of Straight Dope. Hang in there with me.
