Assign multiple genres to one song in iTunes
Authored by: eduo on Apr 10, '03 05:34:28PM

This is something I have been using for a while now but never thought it'd be enough for a hint.

The comma is completely unnecessary, AFAICT. What I did was to have several genres in the genre field separated by spaces.

So, I could have
pop
rock
ballad
latin pop
world pop
latin rock
world rock
latin ballad
world ballad

And then I could do a smart playlist (or search in the field) to either get all rock songs, all latin songs, all latin pop songs, etc, giving you enough flexibility to either select all genres of the same kind (all pop, latin or otherwise) or specific subgenres and to also see what hadn't been "subgenreified" (since it would have either a blank genre field or "pop" "rock" etc in its genre field.

Also, once you type it once it gets stored in the popup, so make sure you use the autocomplete after the first time you capture the genre, so as to not have "latin pop" and "pop latin" as different genres.
