A lot of songs have multiple genre, for example a song can be jazz, electronic and vocal. I'd like to be able to find the song when I look at either of the genres.

I use foobar and it doesn't have support for multiple genre.

Is there a media player for windows that has support for multiple tags? or how do you go around that?

one other way I'd like to use it. is I'd like to use it as a playlists. for example, I want to specify what songs I'd like to play at the beginning of the evening and which I'd like to play at the end.

None of the major media players (Windows Media Player, Winamp, etc.) has this feature, but I think MediaMonkey has support for multiple genres. Haven't tried it myself, but here is a screenshot I found:

MediaMonkey multiple genres

To add multiple genre tags, separate each genre with a ';' (semicolon).

Update: It seems MusicBee is another player that has this feature. It can handle multiple artists and genres.

Foobar2000 does have support for multiple genres. Separate the genres with a semicolon when editing tags, like this: "Punk; Rock". A track tagged that way will show up under both Punk and Rock genres.

Windows Media Player can handle multiple genres, just separate them with semicolons (;)
