Exclamation music is music. no matter what genre

Music is great. its what makes the world go round for some. music is music no matter what genre it is. genre's arent what makes the music good so does it really matter what genre it is?

yea it does matter what genre it is for some. if i say i like music, and there were no genres, that'll mean im saying i like techno, and dance music, which i dont like.
that probably didnt make sense, you hopefully got the jist of it.

On my computer I've got all my music categorised by distinct genres, but the genre doesn't determine if I like the song or not. For instance, if I liked a song, but then I found out it was some genre I didn't like too much, I wouldn't stop liking the song. Music is music...But I like certain types of music better than others, that's all I have to say about that.

sometimes I think genres can get confusing but I guess they're there for a reason

I`d rather kill myself than listen to something just because it`s from a certain genre.

Regardless of genre, [I]someone[I] out there enjoys it, and defines it as music.

The breaking down into genres is simply done because styles may be similar, or time periods and the like.

Scat, rap, R&B, classic rock, etc, all have an aura, or sound, that one can put into a group with other music that is similar.

When I was younger, I would only listen to rock (well, it's classic rock now), and refused to listen to anything else, because it 'sucked'. I had no basis for this opinion, other than narrowness of mind. LOL.

Luckily for me, I got bored with listening to the same type of music all the time, and started exploring around. Boy, if I'd known there was so much out there, I wouldn't have been so stubborn in my teens.

I'll try anything now. You never know what might whet your musical palate until you taste it, you know? Listen to the Andrews Sisters' effortless harmonies. Or Blind Willie Johnson's painful wailing of his slide guitar on 'Bottles, Knives and Steel' from the early 1930s. Brilliant.

I tend to not listen to much Opera and Rap. Not too genre's of music i like. But occasionally, i'll find something good.

I like rock, grunge, some classic rock, some pop, some electric, indie, rock alternative, and anything from the '90s. In my CD collection you'll find mostly new rock and then you'll find a few odd things.

Genres are made so you can classify music, that's why genres matter to me so I can know what im going to be listening to.
