CD listing program

I want to come up with a file program of some sort , to list my CD's . It is hard for me to tell all of what I would like this program to do , but I will try to list basically what I would like it to do .
1. I would like to list the CD's alphebiticaly as to title , and also artist .
2. list all songs alphebitcally as to title , and artist .
3. list songs as to style of music , country , rock , ect. ect.
4. list songs as to dance styles , fast dance , slow dance , boogie , ect. ect .
My objective is to go through all my CD's listening to them , and listing them as to style , artist , title , dance style , and all , just one time . Then , have the capability to bring up a list according the my particular search cryteria at the time . For example , find all songss that are country , fast dance , by artist " ? " . A program of this sort would be of some value to me during preperations for a DJ gig . In this way , I wouldn't have to carry our intire library of CD's to every gig , and wouldn't have to rely on my memory to select the CD's that would fit each individual event .
Seeing that I have no experience in writting programs , I have no idea as to how to even start writting one . I would suspect that by listing each song by title , and then adding a notation to each song , as to artist , style , dance style , and such would be a good approach . I know I can break this listing down some what by creating different folders manually , such as folder A music , sub folders B , C , D , ect . , country , rock , folk . And then subfolders of these as to dance style and further . But this seems to be very time consumeing , and my thinking , there has to be a better way . Espeacially when my library grows to a respectable size . Can you offer me any help , or point me in the right dirrection to get started on this project . Seeing that I am of very limited financial means , ( no money to spare ) , any free ware , or low cost share ware would be in order . I know there are programs that may be purchased to do as I would like , but at this time , as mentioned above , I can't afford such programs . This may be a good learning experience for me to begin learning basic programing . The only programing writeing system I have at my disposal right now , or I think it is a write program , is Lotus 1-2-3 release 2.2 .

I got a few examples:
Music organizer:(shareware)
http://www.zdnet.com/downloads/stories/info/0,10615,38475,00.html
Abyssaudio: (Free program)
http://www.zdnet.com/downloads/stories/info/0,10615,76541,00.html
---
If non were good enough,
I think you better search for more products. The best sites to access free and shareware softwares are:
http://www.zdnet.com/downloads
and
www.download.com
search for something like "Cd song organizer" or "cd library" or any terms you wish a software do for you.
The best thing about zdnet is that, this page evaluates these softwares with grades and is undependent. Very good descriptions too.
Good luck Dear
Navid

Navid , I thank you for the info . How ever , I'm not looking to store and organize the music itself , just the listings of the music . For example ;
1. song A , by artist A , dance style A , music style A
2. song B , by artist A , dance style B , music style C
3. song C , by artist B , dance style A , music style B
4. song D , by artist B , dance style B , music style A
Now when I want to find all songs with dance style " B " , the program will show me songs 2 and 4 . Or find all songs with music style " A " will show songs 1 and 4 . And so on .
I have no intentions of recording the actual music to the computer , ( very limited disk space ) , just the discriptions listings .
