Bigger Winner of the Night

08 Feb

The Grammys took a baby step to redemption in recognizing Robert Plant & Alison Krauss’s awesome CD, Raising Sand, as Album of the Year, and Please Read the Letter as Record of the Year.  But perhaps my favorite on the CD is a cover of the Everly Brothers’ Gone, Gone, Gone

Contrast and compare.


  Gone, Gone, Gone — The Everly Brothers


  Gone, Gone, Gone  — Alison Krauss & Robert Plant

    No fair MM. I’m still watching it on the West Coast. You spilled the beans.

    However I did think it was a toss up between Cold Play and Plant/Krauss. It was too close to call.

    As the resident Motown Maven here, I was glad to see the Four Tops tribute. But — hello? You had Al Green on hand people! Al Green! He sings a Motown medley at every show he does, and is his brilliant self.

    Also, can I get witness here: why is Justin Timberlake EVERYWHERE in every recent Grammy show? I mean, he was in so many numbers. And Keith Urban too!

    Timberfake sang more of “Let’s Stay Together” than my beloved Al did. And if ever that was a time for one of the neo-soul people (Neo, or Raphael Saadiq, who really got stiffed last night — more about him later) to step up to the plate.

    I want to declare a Timberlake Moritorium! And it’s not just because he so crudely dissed Taylor Hicks way back when….

    I would love to see more of these type of collaborations – Robert Plant & Alison Krauss are special. The Crossroads series on CMT has produced some great surprises – Dave Matthews and Emmylou Harris, Heart and Wynonna, Kelly and Reba, Kid Rock and Hank Williams Jr, etc.

    Bruce Springsteen won Best Rock song for Girls In Their Summer Clothes?

    I guess Bruce and Best Rock Song aren’t important??????
