Hi there, " Pawn Shop Blues" is a song, I just don’t understand what does Blues mean, could you please give me a helping hand. Thanks a lot.
‘Blues’ is a song genre - a particular style of song.
I don’t usually use Wikipedia as a source of reference, but in this case it seems appropriate:
It is like we have Ballad, rock & roll, jazz, disco, heavy metal, pops, opera…, isn’t it?
Yes, JLTS, it’s another genre like those.
Many thanks, BN
Hi, Dear Beeesneees, I am very pleased with your response. Whenever I have any problems you would give me a helping hand all the time without delay. Thank you very much.
By the way, how do we pronounce “genre”, BN? “g” as “s” in vision? somthing like /"s"arnrer/?
That’s an interesting question, Joseph. There are a number of variations. Personally I’d try to pronounce it as close to the French original as possible, but here are some alternatives:

It’s interesting. Thank you BN.
