    Since Apple raised the limit of tracks allowed with iTunes Match, I've been busy these last weeks adding songs to my library. I've now got a total of 61,200 items (159 days, 407 GB) in my Music library.

    iTunes Match has worked really well, the main problem being that I'd updated the genres for the 25,000 tracks it had limited me to, so correcting the 35,000 plus new tracks has taken a lot of time.

    Anyway, I've finished with the genres, deleted duplicate tracks, and added artwork to everything.

    Now, that I've got the library all shiny and clean, I'd like to see how other people organize their music genres.

    Here are mine:

    Wow! Quite a range of musical genres. Just out of interest, do William Shatner's albums come under Spoken Word-Poetry or Comedy? :D

    I absolutely adore Shatner - I'm a huge Star Trek fan.

    In swing singing, they say it's good to be behind the beat. Shatner's the only 'singer' I know who's behind by whole verses. :D
