So I was registering the old CD for sales tracking today, and had a bit of difficulty in the “Genre” box, in that the only two that remotely seem to fit the album were “Soul/R&B” and “Rock”, neither of which it really is. Certainly, the upcoming CD is hardly “R&B” OR “Rock”.
Contacting the individuals to confirm that there was no category for “Pop” because “Pop is short for Popular music”, I was told “if you have no genre, leave it blank.” which made me somewhat sad for my songs! They are orphaned, genre-less songs! Alone in the world! What are they to do, other than be grabbed by a man in a ridiculous hat and walked down through London as he tries to sell them while singing “One Song For Sale” all because they asked for another bowl of porridge which they didn’t really even want but were encouraged to ask for by their stupid peers at the orphanage?
