The Grammy Nominations 2015… Well There is Glen Campbell And….

Story

Look, I don’t know much about movies, I mean I go to em from time to time, and review em, but I don’t really care about them at all. As art forms go, I think it died with Robert Altman, if not, indeed, Renoir. But that’s me, I am what I hate in other people’s attitudes about music when it comes to movies… I just think the new movies ain’t got the same soul. But music I know, and a look at this awful awful list and only one thing is certain: the rest of the nominees can’t lick Campbell’s boots.
“Everything Is Awesome” from “The Lego Movie”; Music and Lyric by Shawn Patterson – This is a ridiculousy catchy song, that plays out in multi-colored irony in a movie I really liked it. My friends kids sang this more often than taht “Frozen” thingy and for better reason – A-

“Glory” from “Selma”; Music and Lyric by John Stephens and Lonnie Lynn – Common and John Legend’s astoundingly repulsive over weaned faux-gospel, manipulative bullshit. worst line? Common’s about Fergusson. Shameful garbage – D-

“Grateful” from “Beyond the Lights”; Music and Lyric by Diane Warren – Warren, the journeyman songwriter has been nominated six times and lost six times in this category and have no doubt this mediocre bore won’t do it for her, nope no lucky number seven. Why? Because they have to give “Selma” something – C
“I’m Not Gonna Miss You” from “Glen Campbell…I’ll Be Me”; Music and Lyric by Glen Campbell and Julian Raymond – Glen’s last song ever, about Alzheimer’s disease, where he won’t even miss the woman he loves most. Heartbreaking stuff and obviously there is no competition at all. Instead of giving the Oscar to this important song, they are gonna give it to the bathetic “Glory” fifty years after it mattered – A

“Lost Stars” from “Begin Again”; Music and Lyric by Gregg Alexander and Danielle Brisebois – I hated the movie and I hate this song with a passion. Boring crappola – C-

Remember: a vote for “I’m Not Gonna Miss You” over “Glory” is not a vote for Southern whites over Southern blacks, but for a good song over a terrible song. Given the great music that came out of the Civil Rights movement, it is pathetic this is its represenation in 2015.
