Oh, this is great.

The Jazz Trio one is terrific, as is the Marching Band. I think I might have called "Orchestral" "Movie Soundtrack" instead - just has a bit of that huge action-picture swelling-emotions thing going on, to me.

And of course the 90's TV Theme and the last one (go on, click through and see for yourself) are fabulous.

It's fun to think about genres and compare what I expected each of these to sound like with what I actually heard. ("Country" wasn't quite what I was expecting - but still a lot of fun.)

Thank you so much for putting these together, malevolent! And thank you for sharing them with us, aniola!

... and thank you, Jennifer Nelson, for filing the 2013 lawsuit and proving that this song is in the public domain!

That's not Country, that's Cajun! Truth in stock music!

Yep. Pure Zydeco. Although it was probably played in the country.

Yeah there was some dithering over that one - I didn't feel we had a good enough understanding of the genres involved and didn't want to risk trampling on cultural subtleties or missing any sensitivities and so ended up with vague & inaccurate label.

My fav is the jazz trio.
