Hi Jamie--a good question. There are 143 APIs in the music category, but 160 APIs are tagged music. So, while most music APIs are in the music category, there are some that are music-related, but belong to a different category.

So because by the problem title, i absolutely like to get straight into yugioh all over again.
There was a time when i would perform in like 2001, but the decks in addition to stratagies are several.
Therefore therein is my problem, can you guys have any pointers/tips to get in to yugioh all over again, and
can also you reccommend a great starter/structure decks?

Cheers in advance.

Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop,
just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed
and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it
with someone!
