I am trying to classify all my music into quite broad genres. If you could only have ten or less categories for your music what would they be?
Okay, I don't have any completely bazaar music like a Panda playing The Bamboo Flute or my own rendition of Mozart's 5th using bottles and spoons!!!

1.) Pop
Typical Top 40 stuff you hear on the radio. Can also include 80's New Wave.
Examples: Madonna, Britney Spears, Aqua, New Order, Tears For Fears, Duran Duran.

2.) Hip-Hop
Anything old school rap, modern rap, or even gangsta rap.
Examples: LL Cool J, Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, Eminem, Run DMC, The Sugarhill Gang.

3.) Rock
All types of rock music including classical rock, modern rock, grunge, hard rock, alternative rock.
Depending on how broad you want to make it, one can even include country western and bluegrass, since in a way, they are somewhat really soft rock.
Examples: Van Halen, Bon Jovi, Poison, Seven Mary Three, Soundgarden, Nirvana, Alice in Chains, The Scorpions, Rush, Ben Folds Five,

4.) R&B
Pretty standard typical Motown or soul music that isn't hip-hop or jazz.
Examples: Barry White, Mary J. Blige, Alicia Keys, Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, R. Kelly

5.) Jazz
Pretty much self-explanatory.
Examples: Louis Armstrong, Cassandra Wilson, Robert Coltrane.

6.) Latin
Any Latin artists. Also includes salsa, cumbia, and ranchera music.
Examples: Shakira, Alejandra Guzman, Julio Iglesias, Enrique Iglesias, Alicia Villareal.

7.) Metal
Any metal, including heavy metal, speed metal, death metal, thrash metal, etc.
Examples: Metallica, Megadeth, Motorhead, Slayer, Iron Maiden, Pantera

8.) Electronica
Anything that is mostly DJ made on electronic equipment. Includes Techno, Trance, EuroDance, Goa.
Examples: Astral Projection, Ministry of Sound, Moby. Also all those DJ continuous mix albums, like Armin Van Buuren's "A State of Trance" weekly series.

9.) Classical
Anything regarding the music of the classical composers.
Examples: Mozart, Bach, Beethoven, Handel, Tchaikovsky, Chopin.

10.) World
Rythmic beats of various non-American culture
Examples: Brazilian Samba, African Tribal, Reggae, World Fusion, Turkish Dance.
