Let’s talk about.. remember these oww baby, baby sisters? And who could forget their smash Let’s talk about sex!
Well I wanna talk about something alright, but it sure ain’t sex.
It’s that danggone Grammy show.
For the past several years I’ve been waiting to be wowed like I was in the 80’s and 90’s.
They let me down every time.
First off these are my opinions. So walk with me here if you don’t mind.
I’m sort of what you would call a music connoisseur. I like all types of music and because of my upbringing, being around great voices and good music all my life, as far as vocals and lyrics are concerned, I live by a certain standard.
Music just ain’t music no more.
I mean it is, but you have to listen to the old stuff or the legends to be moved. Atleast I do.
There are a few great ones mixed in with the more popular mediocrity that is considered “good music” these days.
And that’s where the problem with the Grammys begin for me.
The few talented artist that are left, don’t get the recognition they deserve.
I wait, and I wait every year, and every year, I’m throughly disappointed.
I mean just who is this academy that decides and what exactly is their merit system? Surely real talent isn’t measured because some of the performances and winners…Chile please, let me just shut up about that.
All I keep hearing about is Pharrell’s hat, Beyoncés wet hair, the marriage that Queen Latifah officiated, and what everybody had on. I DON’T CARE, I DON’T CARE.
I’m only here for the music ok.
You know the Grammys have truly fell off when the only thing worth mentioning is what everyone wore. The red carpet is more popular than the performances. It’s not the oscars, it’s the Grammys… Give me a break.
Remember when the Grammys got you excited? I might be dating myself here, but some of my best Grammy moments happened in the 80’s. I have memories of Michael Jackson, Prince, Whitney Houston, you know, the greats. My absoulte favorite performances were that of Marvin Gay, and the one with Eric Clapton when he did Tears In heaven after his son had passed away…. ah yes, now that was magic.
I’m just an old soul. I like what I like and not one performance was magical for me.
No. Not one.
I do realize I’m a day late and a dollar short with this post, but I had to talk about it.
The state of music today. Blows me apart.
Did you like the Grammys? If so, who did you enjoy. Please tell me, I’d really like to know.
Peace and love,
