Are there any words that mean "of or relating to songs"?

I can think of audio, which means relating to any sound, or melodic, which is relating to just the melody within a song, but nothing about songs in general or musical compositions in general.

For example, I want to say

This song is the ___ equivalent of Donald Trump - superficially attractive, but with no depth, and with disastrous consequences if it wins.


What about simply "musical"?

"This song is the musical equivalent of Donald Trump ..."


Has a Latin one though. Carmen is the Latin word for song. Its genitive singular is carminis. The genitive plural is carminum.

To answer your question, perhaps acoustic?
