"The modern sound system includes a multitude of speakers to provide the perfectly balanced soundscape: the center channel, left and right front speakers, a-bit-more-to-the-left and a-bit-more-to-the-right speakers, surround speakers, surrounding-surround speakers, AND VARIOUS OVERKILL TO ENSURE EVENTUAL DEAFNESS SPEAKERS!!!

This supercategory is about all sounds in creative works — songs, lyrics, score, sound effects, and even dialogue.
Note that under the broadest definition, "music" is simply "the arrangement of sound". Since creative works are edited, this would mean that every noise was music. That's why we're going to use a slightly stricter definition for organizational purposes, and separate artistic works with rhythm, pitch and dynamics (i.e. songs) as Music, the spoken word as Dialogue, and other noises as Sound FX.
All about songs, lyrics, music, and sounds, except for spoken words outside of songs.
A special note should be made for Rhythm Games, games where you play with the music.
