Thread Name: Which is the greatest genre of music?
Subject: RE: Which is the greatest genre of music?
I think something magical happens when genres come together and form something new. Like many of the posters above, I love a vast range of musical styles, including those which 'cross' boundaries and are hard to categorise. And I believe that most of the pigeonholed genres came out of a mix of other styles, evolving over the years until someone decided to call 'this' something else...rock and roll being a good example. And sometimes what you choose to call it is up to you...I think it's a shame and a sin to squeeze songs/music into little boxes and never let them be free...okay I'm rambling now ;-)
Getting OFF the soapbox and shutting up now...
