terms and taxonomy


Dear Songs,

Oooh, you know what I love?  High context language and specific terms!  Wikipedia is packed with it, and I go there sometimes to look up one thing, and I find a delightful sub-genre or term.  Remember the Narcocorrido?  So great!  Check out this one:  The Power Ballad.  Nope, it's not what you think; it ought to be a story of my one true love going down to the river and falling over the damn, to be churned into electricity to light your night and run your radio.  What it is this, your song of the day!
