That's a lateral step. Ne-Yo for album of the year?

Jonas Brothers for best new artist is hilarious...they've been around for years.

Jonas Brothers deserve Best Lyric for this

"Next time I see you
I'm giving you a high five
Cause hugs are over-rated just F.Y.I"

Brandon Flowers, Chris Martin eat your hearts out

Brandon Flowers, Chris Martin eat your hearts out
You cut me down a tree and brought it back to me
and that's what made me see where I was going wrong
You put me on a shelf and kept me for yourself
I can only blame myself, you can only blame me
and I could write a song a hundred miles long
Well that's where I belong and you belong with me


Damn, we got a close one here.

"Lucky that my breasts are small and humble
So you don't confuse them with mountains"

"Are we human or are we dancer?"

"Freedom has a scent like the top of a newborn baby's head"



These could all be the single great lyric ever

I've never had a problem with the "freedom has a scent" lyric, but it feels shoehorned into Miracle Drug. I have no idea why it's there, or why Bono is going around sniffing the heads of infants. But it's not a bad piece of imagery. Certainly better than equating lumber to a bouquet or whatever the fuck it is Chrissy's doing.

You do have a really good point there


"and I could write a song a hundred miles long"

I wish he would do this and disappear until it was finished...

I think if Coldplay beats Radiohead for album I'll have to go on a NARAS witch hunt.

Of course, I've said the same thing about AMPAS countless times.

But one day!

Cool to see M.I.A.'s Paper Planes for record of the year, though.

Who knows, maybe Radiohead has earned enough respect (and made a pretty enough album) to take it. You think if they really had a problem with the band bucking the retail system, they wouldn't have even nominated it.

Hope VLVODAAHF win the album grammy. Would be so good to see the lads up there after years of toiling away.....

House Of Cards up for a Grammy . I'd be fuckin stoked if that won, but I feel that it's inclusion is tokenism to appease the indie folk, and to try and generate interest from these disillusioned alternative anti-commerical segments. Sex Is On Fire will win. Kings Of Leon are the "hottest" band right now....or so say all the commercial radio stations in Oz.

yeah, i think you hit it right on the nail there, "in Oz". KOL isn't nearly as big here in the U.S. as they are abroad. they're not off the radar here, but they're not huge either. i don't know if they'll win the Grammy. Coldplay are much bigger here in the States.

I thought we were mirroring the US in their sudden infatuation with KOL?

We've got an extraordinary situation where, after being totally ignored by commercial radio in Australia, all of a sudden, with this album release, they are untouchable, drooled over across the nation by everyone and anyone, their two previous albums penetrated the Top 20 in the album chart after barely registering 10,000 sales when they were released, the Melbourne gig sold out a 15,000 arena in 7 minutes. The band has gone from nowhere to somewhere in no time at all....it's quite remarkable.

Um...

D'ya think Radiohead'll play on the show? I hope not, so I don't have to watch the thing.

the term "snowball's chance in hell" comes to mind...

They don't really strike me as an "awards show" band but stranger things have happened I guess....

yeah, i know they aren't that type but it could happen. And the whole carbon footprint thing will probably have something to do with them not being there I imagine a video taped speech of some sort will probably happen.

A friend of mine was on a flight with two of them (he could never tell me which ones but I always assumed Jonny & Thom since he didn't know their names but recognized them as being from Radiohead) from London to NYC for an awards show. I don't remember the show or the circumstances but I think it was right after Kid A. Maybe they were presenters?

But no, I don't see them performing on the Grammy's.
