Lists (such as Genre) seem counterintuitive and limited?
#1
I'm finding the lists (such as Genre, Key) to have very odd behavior compared to what I'd expect. Maybe I'm missing something? Let me give an example.

I edit a song and in the Genre dropdown I pick "Acoustic". If I press the trash can icon on the "Genre" line, it completely deletes "Acoustic" from the Genre list, so 

1) its gone from all other songs I had as Acoustic, and 
2) it's not longer in the list to select.

Second - if I add a new item to a list (such as Genre), I can't find a way to edit it (I had a typo on one and needed to fix it). 

I would think there would be a "list editor" as a top-level action that I could add/remove/edit the available items in each list, and when actually USING the list when editing a song I shouldn't be able to delete entries from the list - or the Delete icon should only delete the selected entries FOR THAT SONG.

It just seems to be completely different usage pattern for lists than any other program I've used or developed. I at least need some way to edit an entry - I have a lot of songs tied to a particular item in a list (the band name) and I need to rename since the band changed names. Currently I don't see another way except for going to any song that uses the old band name, pressing the trash icon to delete the item from the list (and therefore all the songs that used it), create a new list item, and then go to each song and add it.?

if I'm missing something obvious, let me know (wouldn't be the first time lol!)

Thanks!
