Songs should show the type of genre it is

Status: Good Suggestion

Sometimes you discover a certain song that becomes your top 1 favorite and you want more of that specific style, but you don't even have any idea of what genre could it be. It happens me a lot with EDM music, and Rock music, I love so much certain songs but its hard to find a similar one when I don't know what type of genre it is. For example I found "Don't say goodbye" by Alok and the rhythm is the exact style I love to hear in Electronic music but I have not a single clue of what type o genre could it belong to.

I often have this same problem with genres.  I use this website to see what genres a song falls under

I agree it would be nice if songs had different tags for genres/energy levels/etc.  Then you could click on the tags and see all the songs under that tag.

This would be such a great addition as a lot of albums vary slightly in genres/subgenres of their songs and it'd be great to find similar vibe songs from the individual song's genre/subgenre rather than just similar artists

yes please add this ! Why not let users decide which ordering filters they want to use instead of now : artist-album-date_added_duration, i would use artist (title seperate again would be good too)-genre-year_released-date_added 

 

all this data is available within spotify, just allow users to use it !

Tidal and Qobuz give a lot of information, Spoty should also do something about it

This is actually a very challenging proposal.  First, it requires a human to listen to every song and be an expert at categorizing every style of music -- there are hundreds, and few human beings have this sort of innate knowledge.  Secondly, genres can often be very subjective -- is it trance, progressive, edm, etc..?  So the person tagging the song then has to contend with the disagreement of a community, and there will always be people who disagree.  Then you have to contend with artists who disagree with your tagging, or who insist their track is something that it clearly is not.

 

You could potentially mitigate this by using extremely broad categories, like "Rock", "Electronic", but then the value becomes sort of useless.  

 

Starting a radio station based on a song or artist works to achieve the same effect as you want -- the ability to know what the genre is, so you can find other similar music.  Well, Spotify already solved that for you with radio stations.

 

All in all, this sounds like a good idea in theory, but in practice it's quite impractical if not impossible.  Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
