#GRAMMYs 2013

I had the duty of watching the Grammys last night and providing some commentary on mvyradio’s Facebook and twitter pages. I’m extremely lucky to be working for an independent radio station where I choose and truly love the music we play — and that was very obvious to me last night. I posted and commented on all the “mvy” artists…which were really all the artists that I was interested in seeing…and left everything else out. The Black Keys doing “Lonely Boy” with The Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Dr. John blew me away. Jack White ROCKED – he surprised and impressed me. I thoroughly enjoyed Mumford & Sons, The Lumineers, and FUN…

and what I was most excited about (and what didn’t disappoint), was this tribute to Levon Helm done by Brittany Howard (Alabama Shakes), Mumford & Sons, Elton John, Mavis Staples, Zac Brown, and T-Bone Burnett:

Adele – “I’ll Be Waiting”

With Grammy nominations revealed, my only prediction is that Adele will be taking home Album Of the Year for 21. I remember how angry I got over the summer when some dude at a bar told me Adele would be a one hit wonder. I thought it made him sound just plain stupid, considering she’s already had more than one hit. While “Rolling in the Deep” (up for Record and Song of the year) was a SMASH hit, Adele also nailed it with so many other tracks on her latest album. The tune “I’ll Be Waiting” is one of my favorites. To drive home how damn talented she is, here’s a live version:

The Black Keys – “Howlin’ For You”

My winter blues are in full effect and I’ve been feeling quite lethargic lately. I didn’t feel up for blogging this weekend, sorry for that. I DID watch the Grammy Awards…in fact, I provided live commentary throughout the show on mvyradio’s twitter page, which was really fun. Some of the highlights for me were performances by Mumford & Sons and The Avett Brothers with Bob Dylan and Cee Lo’s hilarious rendition of “F*$# You” with help from Gwenyth Paltrow and some muppets!

I was also psyched to see Ray LaMontagne, Bela Fleck, Patty Griffin, Mavis Staples, and especially The Black Keys win for their respective albums. Brothers was one of my favorite albums of 2010, and the song “Howlin’ For You” is my favorite track on that album. The Black Keys recently put out a hilarious video for the song… you’ll have to click through to watch it on YouTube:
