I Extracted all these genres and imported them in Excel. I filtered them and sorted them so I'd know how many times a genre existed. Example: I have 2500 'Rock' tracks.
Now decided that I wanted to use all the genre's that existed more than once. this still makes up 330 genre's. Now I focussed on only use the music genre's. ie. Indie means independent that has nothing to do with musicgenre so instead I used Indie Rock.
some examples of genre's i didn't list:
Geographical things, exception African genre.
I now have about 80 genre's. The last thing I did is rename compounded terms like Alternative Rock into Rock, Alternative. In this way I think it's better organizing. I also listed genre's that are mispelled. Such as: Rnb R&B RandB, I use only R&B.
Now I thought of someting else. I hope it would be possible to use the moods and occasions from last.fm tags in MM. I also listed these moods and occasions in the sheet (which are used more than once!).
Example: first tag of a song is 'Christmas' copy this to the MM occasion field. And then use the second tag for the genre. same for moods.
Hope I am of some help. This list might be updated but than larger a library should be used.
