Listening to Cascada - Evacuate the dance floor. Pretty good song. I want to find other songs like it. So what do I do? Go to wikipedia and figure out what kind of music it is from there. Wiki lists them as Eurodance. What the fuck is eurodance you ask? A genre of music that has Hi-NRG, Italo-Disco, Trance, and Techno influences. So I spend the next god damn hour back tracking and tracing through all the history of music to try to find something that I sure as shit forgot what I was looking for.
I some how stumbled upon this: http://techno.org/electronic-music-guide/.
What the fuck is this shit? Music’s family tree? It doesn’t list what I was originally looking for.
And what the fuck has happened to rock music? Prog Rock and Alternative rock. What the hell are the difference. When the balls did all these other genres form?
Why is there no place I can go to figure out what makes x genre, x genre. With a clear explanation.
