    “…We’re treating around 300 years of music from various countries, forms, philosophies, and so on as one genre. As far as modern commercial music, we don’t group the past 50 years together: can you imagine how strange it would be to group LL Cool J, Metallica, and The Spice Girls together? These are all artists that were popular in the 90s; beyond that, they have virtually nothing in common. Grouping together Mozart, Ravel, and Cage makes even less sense.”

    A lot of really great points here.

    There are only 2 genres: pop and classical :crylaugh:

    Reminds me of that Pentatonix video about the "history of music" where they basically stormed through anything pre-1900 in about twenty seconds.

    Don’t we pretty much do that with all music of a certain age? I’d have to imagine that “50s music” genre is pretty diverse, but we often see that all lumped in together.

    Edit: being able to properly sort by composer is a great idea though.
