Here is a summary of The Grammys I quite like, posted by, of course, ANONYMOUS.
•I thought Alabama Shakes Don't Wanna Fight No More was a real song and a damn fine performance.
think Gaga shoulda forgone the Vegas Medley route and done this:
same Space Oddity projection FX opening, sung the shit out of a gorgeous
emotional arrangement of "Heroes", then sung a restrained and beautiful
•The Eagles and Jackson Browne did what was needed from them. It wasn't great musically, but it was the correct tribute.
didn't love the Hollywood Vampires set, but I kinda hope it made Justin
Bieber's little group tinkle in their frilly panties a little.
the technical problems, I thought Adele handled herself well. It's not
easy to sing for hundreds of millions of people with a de-tuned
instrument underneath you. Many woulda walked off in tears, she went out
for a burger, apparently ( her words, not mine )
yelled enthusiastically and convincingly over a lot of visual overkill
and hubbub behind him, yet was unable to find a song in there anywhere.
Aside from that, not a lot of actual songs on display.
online to see it all summed up in video of the symbolic real world act
of Paul McCartney being turned away with Beck from a Grammy party
thrown by someone or something named Tyga. When told of the snub by his
doormen, someone who apparently answers to the name Tyga was not
particularly bothered. There's the Grammys 2016 in microcosm.
I'd like to add:
After being turned away, Sir Paul looked at Beck and said, "How V.I.P. do we gotta get? We need another hit guys."
I want to know what was going on at Tyga's party that Paul McCartney chose his over all the others.
