the music channel i watch here has two lady antebellum songs on a fairly heavy rotation.

cori pretty much summed it up. the video for need you now just shows how out of place lp field is with the rest of nashville.

the titans football stadium. i hope i'm not mixing videos up. i can't be bothered watching the video to make sure i'm not mixing them up. it's a big red thing if you want to look for it.

Ah, gotcha. I've never seen the video. I'm not saddened by this fact.

you're probably thinking of the even worse song i run to you or whatever. that's the one of them on the rooftop with people running backwards which is artsy?

need you now is the one with the hotel and the party. god both those songs suck.

This song doesn't exactly make the case for AF's big win.

People unfamiliar with them are going to be justified in thinking it was a bad choice.

I'm having that same thought. Hopefully some of those people will stick around for their second song.

Month of May, not great, but grammy is a shit hole and does not deserve the best

ok they lost a little cred by having guys on bikes riding around the stage

checking out the mashup jt posted. i love that alan parsons song and having heard the other too many times, i never made a connection in the similarity of the two at all. however, having now heard this, it's uncanny. the lady antebellum song sounds even worse slowed down, but wow.

Ready to Start was much better.

Of course Sprawl Part 2 would have been great, but maybe Win didn't want to give up the spotlight?

The title track would have been a good choice as well.

Hey, at least they didn't subject us to Rococo.

Coolest win tonight?

After 30+ years in the business, Iron Maiden won their first Grammy.

Considering Metallica already has 6 wins in the Metal category, that's almost too little too late.

But congrats to the true Kings of Metal.
