Songs should show the type of genre it is

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.

An interesting solution to this problem in the meantime is using this 3rd party website called Exportify!  It connects to your account and can download playlists as Excel Spreadsheets.  These contain amazing amount of information on each of the songs in it.  Along with a detailed description of the genre, it shows the tempo, time signature, key signature, & much more!

Cada canción debería tener una descripción que diga a qué género musical pertenece, para permitirle al oyente descubrir más canciones si encontró una canción que le gustó y quiere mas canciones si artistas similares

Rather than tasking humans at Spotify to listen and categorize songs, wouldn't it be easier to let the listeners suggest a genre?  If enough listeners catalogue a song as rockabilly, then add that as a genre to the song.  Or better yet, let me add genres to the songs on my playlist that only effect those songs on my Spotify.

 

It is maddening that one song out of the 10 from an artist in my Liked Playlist comes up when I select the genre, (e.g. Latin) and all the songs are obviously in the Latin genre.  It is more maddening that I can't even see what genre Spotify has placed them in.  And even more maddening that there is no way to fix it.

This suggestion is gold, must become viral.

Judging by how bad spotify is at genres, it is only partially a bad idea...

There's 1900 votes on this idea now. Can this be promoted so it can be looked into by the devs?

This suggestion!

Spotify could display the song's genre below its title for practicality. I often found myself looking at a title and thinking "cool title, let's listen to it" and it's a completely different genre from what I was listening before, changing the mood of the moment (:
