Coming together nicely, Richie.

Classification is still a big problem but you have at least made a start on getting closer to where the problems lie. I wonder if at some point it might be worth considering a rough guide we use when classifying ballads. If 2 fairly full songs have more than 50% of material in common they could be classed as versions of each other. In songs with little narrative this is often much more difficult.
