Hello, all!

I was adding some Hindi songs from Bollywood movies this morning when I saw that there is no "Bollywood" genre in the list. This is a problem for me, as I like to be very specific when adding new songs/translations/artists. Can we get Bollywood added as a music genre?

Well, I don't think that'a good idea. Bollywood or Hollywood - they are all soundtracks and I guess they should be posted as such. And why should we discriminate Hollywood then? Cry smile

Bollywood is a genre in and of itself. A lot of Bollywood movies (if not all of them) are essentially musicals.

Agree. Bollywood is my piece of cake, too, but all musicals fall under OST genre, don't they? As a translator, I'd single Bollywood out, as an editor, I can't agree to that.

Perhaps a simpler solution would be to create subgenres?

Right, we agreed not to expand the list.
