genre's associated with it.

You are thinking not in the terms of relational db. It's impossible on the
mysql db level.

I don't know what you're trying to say here. You can do relational databases with mysql without any trouble whatsoever. Just because it doesn't support foreign keys (constraints) doesn't mean you can't have foreign keys. In fact, foreign keys mostly just slow down the run-time of your system, but I don't want to start a holy war here.
