We saw Bonnie last summer and she has lost absolutely nothing.
This!the grammys are stupid and meaningless except if i agree with a selection
Also, Samara Joy won for best new artist (she just turned 23) and best vocal jazz album.
That statement works for pretty much every song that's one the award.But not song of the year. It’s not a song anyone will remember outside of a few of us.
never heard the song
I've never cared for any of the stuff of hers I've heard. Just never got the appeal, at all
I much prefer her old pal Rory Block's music/playing/singing
It's a songwriters award...it isn't for record of the year.This!
Because what I read on this forum is the institution is out of touch if the most popular songs win (Bey, Swift, Adele, Styles) but they’re spot on if they award Bonnie. Don’t get me wrong, she is great and in the context of her career this is well deserved many times over. But she hasn’t been significantly important to modern music in decades.
I love her. But I think this was a miss by the Academy. Flame away. But Bonnie Raitt winning song of the year in 2023 is as big a miss as the whole Jethro Tull episode.
You could easily make a case for lifetime achievement. But not song of the year. It’s not a song anyone will remember outside of a few of us.
Have you even heard "Cuff It?"Beyonce is just plain over blown as is everything in pop/hiphop music these days.
A shocker really, and wonderful. Bonnie Raitt won best song at the Grammys last night... in a world of Hip Hop, modern R&B and twerking...
Just listened to it, partially. Got powerfully bored very quick.Have you even heard "Cuff It?"
Agreed. But I have to believe at least a few of the other nominated songs were written.It's a songwriters award...it isn't for record of the year.
Samara Joy IS a joy, and Pasquale Grasso is a monster player, already one of the all-time greats. Pat Metheny described him as "The best guitar player I've heard in maybe my entire life".WOW!!!
Yes, saw this and laughed out loud!
I've seen her a couple times many years back.I caught Rory solo a few years ago, she is a power house. Great slide player too.
So as above it's a perennial bad award, but this year they have it right, truly something to be respected because at least she alone wrote the song.That statement works for pretty much every song that's one the award.
At least in Bonnie's case she alone actually wrote the song, she didn't need a team of writers to win like last years did. The last sole songwriter to win was Amy Winehouse in 2008 for Rehab
