==Genre Description==
Singer/Songwriter is a genre which basically is what it sounds like - music performed by the songwriter. However, there's more to it than that -- things given that label tend to often have an acoustic feel, like modern [[folk]] music, and often has a confessional, personal tone to the lyrics. As such, there's often an entry way to make fun of this genre of music, with the overly-personal or sometimes whiny parody lyrics. Singer/songwriter songs of the non-personal/confessional tradition are also often story songs and/or political in nature. Of course, there are exceptions to all of these examples, but it's a good guideline.
