Playlist Research is working on creating an archive of playlists from every genre. We've entered an age in which the album has been replaced by the playlist as people program their own music for business and pleasure. The above genres represent pages that have useful musical information and sample playlists. If you would like to share your playlists on Playlist Research.com send an email here.

Development of the basic genres of pop, rock, soul and country evolved over many decades. Classical and jazz music have loyal followings but usually attract a single digit share of the market, according to RIAA statistics. While rock has consistently been the leading genre in sales, the leading music formats on FM radio over the 2000s have been adult contemporary and country, according to M Street Corps and Inside Radio reports. The following is a list of articles Playlist Research has compiled about the history of specific music trends and styles.
