"U2: The Grammys Still Think We're Relevant!"

I'm glad U2 won. Didn't expect them to grab all of them, but How To Dismantle an Atomic Bomb was more noteworthy than All That You Can't Leave Behind. Its really their best album since Achtung Baby.

But, I'm also a lifelong U2 fan. A certain bias creeps in.

Looking at this list makes me wish we did a Xixax Grammys.

Am I getting crotchety, or is music sucking more and more each passing year?

Grammy nods always suck.

They follow a formula for album of the year every year.

Slot 1 for mainstream, yet safe rap album of the year.
Slot 2 for slot for hipster approved Indie band for credibility's sake.
Slot 3 for safe black R & B artist.
Slot 4 for aging artist(s) making a comeback,
Slot 5 is the wildcard, but is usually reserved for new band/artist on the scene, sometimes they give it to the most popular rock album of the year.

They pick the winner out of a hat.

Formulaic yes, but better than last year. I was happy to see In Rainbows represented. Nas and the Roots made better rap records than Weezy, but at least Greenwood got recognition from someone for twbb.

I don't get the Grammys. It's not that I think X or Y choice sucks, it's the whole selection I don't get. The nominees are good and everything, it just seems so low rent. almost worthless. Its like they're a bunch of parents who ask their 14 yo daughter : ''so which singer you like now ?''............. no it's not even that

it's more random than that

Grammys sign up Lil Wayne, Thom Yorke for new campaign

Lil Wayne, Radiohead's Thom Yorke, Lenny Kravitz, Stevie Wonder and Rihanna have signed on for a massive Recording Academy ad campaign. Television, print, online and radio spots will try to drum up some excitement for the organization's annual Grammy awards, which suffered a decline in ratings last year.

A television ad with Wonder's "Superstitious" -- and lyrical references to such R&B and soul artists as Ray Charles and Stephanie Mills -- debuted over the weekend on CBS. Ad spots with Rihanna and Yorke will roll out in the days leading up the Feb. 8 telecast.

A Grammy spokeswoman says each artist was asked to give the Recording Academy 10-20 songs that influenced or affected their life and career. The lyrics and song titles are then featured in the print and television ads.

One nicely odd effect is that the advertisements for the industry awards now feature a host of artists and songs that had not been recognized by the Grammys. The Yorke ad is at left, and contains references to such experimental and challenging artists as Scott Walker ("Psoriatic") and the Liars ("The Wrong Coat for You Mt. Heart Attack"). One of the biggest references in Yorke's ad goes to largely unknown electronic act Modeselektor, whose "Kill Bill Vol. 4" is inscribed into the forehead of the Radiohead singer.

The print ads from Lil Wayne and Rihanna come with more popular nods. Lil Wayne's ad pays tribute to Jay-Z's "Can't Knock the Hustle" and Young Buck's "Pocket Full of Paper," for instance. The most notable presence on the Rihanna ad is Destiny's Child's "Say My Name."

The print component will also continue to expand in the run-up to the awards. A Grammy spokeswoman says spots with Coldplay and Kanye West are in development.

The Lil Wayne ad comes with this bit of fine print: "Artist not guaranteed to perform." However, it would be rare for an artist nominated for album of the year -- Lil Wayne's "Tha Carter III" and Radiohead's "In Rainbows" are both up for the top prize -- to not perform at the Grammy ceremony, which will be held at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles.

The ads were developed by TBWA\Chiat\Day, and are said to be part of the biggest campaign in the Recording Academy's history, one that cost in the multimillions, according to Billboard. The promotion, dubbed "music makes us," is coming one year after the Grammys suffered their lowest ratings since 1992. More recently, a prime-time Grammy special announcing this year's nominations didn't fare too well in the ratings, finishing in fourth place for its time slot.

"Thom! Darling! Grammy's here. Listen, we have a once in a lifetime opportunity for you. We would like YOU to select some music for this years Grammy advertisement campaign. Just pick some music that inspires you. We respect your artistic credibility and we think the audience we have lost over the years does too. We just need your taste to be reflected by us. Help us out and pick something you enjoy. Something that makes you wanna move. Rihanna picked a FANTASTIC Destiny's Child song. Lil Wayne? Some Jay-Z. We want you to be on board as well. How about it. Are you in?"


"................................................"


"................................"


"Modeselektor. Liars."


"FANTASTIC!! Never heard of them, but if the guy that wrote Creep recommends them, I'm sure they're EXACTLY what we're looking for!"


Approximately 17 minutes later........


"Thom? Yeah, Grammy's here. Listen, about that music you suggested..........."
