    There has actually been some research on this problem. See for example this paper (PDF link):

    http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc...=rep1&type=pdf

    But unfortunately:
    1) I'm not aware of any publicly available software.
    2) The results you get from something like this will probably be error prone (that paper reported accuracy of around 70%)
    3) It will probably only work reliably for relatively broad genre definitions (i.e. distinguishing between rock and classical as opposed to house and trance).

    So, short answer, no

    I should make a program like that, market it, and purposely make it return any music analysis with "Smooth Jazz" lol

    I highly highly doubt that, well maybe one day when computers are waaaaaay more faster and has waaaaaaaaay more intelligent code !

    I think its in the realms of possibility, but not with todays technology.

    Plus honest to god, anyone who has ever uploaded a track to any music forum and put the genre in the topic has been quickly corrected with a "I dunno dude I wouldn't call that hard house..."
    I used to link music in my signature but nowadays I don't.

    I mean most broad genres can be detected via bpm. House=126, Dubstep=140, Drum & Bass = 174. Etc... Genre has never been my problem.
