Singer/songwriter - King Rat
Private Life
I need another name for the genre of music generally called singer/singwriter. Folk is short and more snappy, but James Taylor and that whole crop of female singers in the 90s aren't really folk. I don't want to debase my folks songs by lumping them together. There are a few decent folks who do stuff in the singer/songwriter genre, and I need a good way to label them in media player.

how about a list of folks you are trying to categorize?

that'd help.

I had that problem with my Leonard Cohen collection but I settled on the unimaginative title: Doesn't suck.
