|Music/Music genres task force|
|On 7 December 2021, it was proposed that this article be moved from List of music styles to List of music genres and styles. The result of the discussion was moved.|
prior content from years ago has been archived
All prior content from this talk page is now in /Archive 1. There had been no discussion here since 2004, so none of it was current and there was no reason to keep it here.
We are starting with a clean slate here, in conjunction with today's edits to the article Music genre by User:TimNelson in which the Music genre lists from the are being moved to and re-organized into this article. --Parzival418 Hello 03:36, 4 June 2007 (UTC)
I don't get this...
What happened to the whole music thing here? Do you realize that this was probably the only modern music encyclopedia that was worth something, and thanx to who ever "rewrote" these articles, now it's worth nothing... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 23:01, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
Post-Industrial as its own movement?
Hm, as far as I've checked, post-industrial music, in itself, is not nearly as broad of a genre term and as general as one to make it its own movement away from any 'electronic' movement. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jotsko (talk • contribs) 03:15, 18 June 2008 (UTC)
A website to help clean up these genres
I'm working on a website (mashup) that helps people explore different music genres. The content, including the list of genres is all taken from the four music styles lists linked to on this wiki entry. I will be creating links back to wikipedia to encourage cleaning up incorrect content. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jezait (talk • contribs) 23:52, 6 January 2011 (UTC)
The website has been created and has a temproary location here: http://exploremusic.burnbright.co.nz. It currently only displays content, but doesn't so much encourage contributing and updating it. I would really appreciate any thoughts on this approach to help flesh out the music genre knowledge base.
I'm also thinking of creating a comprehensive music geneology map that connects every possible genre to related genres in a visual format.
This classification is mostly worthless and largely fan-driven. There must be some way to separate the important musical traditions from around the world from the minutely-different 'house' styles and vaguely-defined variations of jazz (progressive, free, space, etc.) 22.214.171.124 (talk) 16:00, 9 November 2011 (UTC) Eric
Potential of list
There is an incredible amount of potential that this list has, but as of now it lacks in many areas. While not perfect, List of electronic music genres is an example of a far more uniform and comprehensive list of music genres. It is inconvenient to simply split this list into four different pages, and on those pages, only sort genres alphabetically. This page has the potential to be a comprehensive list of all genres, divided logically by genres with the subgenres listed in a similar fashion to List of electronic music genres. This page, after these revisions, will not only be informative but also enjoyable to read. --126.96.36.199 (talk) 16:42, 1 January 2014 (UTC)
- What exactly are you proposing to do? Please note there is already a page at List of popular music genres, which may be the sort of thing you are thinking of.--SabreBD (talk) 17:26, 1 January 2014 (UTC)
Music style vs genre
Flamenco Is Not Latin Music
Flamenco is Spanish with its roots in gypsy music. How or why it is surreptitiously plonked in the "Latin" section is both lazy and misleading. It has absolutely nothing to do with Italy, Central America or Latin 'whatever'.
- Romani should not be confused with 'Roman'. It refers to Romani gypsies (Roma, but certainly not the tomato!) who most likely have their origins in the Indian Subcontinent. Wokepedian (talk) 04:25, 2 July 2021 (UTC)
Style X Genre
As far i know, music style is like sentimental ballad, electronic, uptempo, downtempo, etc... While genre is the whole composition of a song. This page provides incorrect information. -GogoLion (talk) 17:31, 29 November 2021 (UTC)
