browntimmy: Wayne 985: rynthetyn: worlddan: If either Mumford and Sons or the Lumineers win anything I'll declare music dead.

/Must be the only TCW fan who despises both groups.

I like Mumford and Sons but Frank Ocean deserves to win everything this year. I don't even really like his genre (R&B makes me feel cranky for some reason), but Channel Orange was a great album.

Ditto. I just bought it today and it's amazing.

Judging by his performance and song at the Grammys, he doesn't deserve a record deal. It wasn't just bad, it was embarrassing. I caught him on Saturday Night Live awhile back too and had the thought, "You know when you see really old reruns of SNL and the musical guest makes you go, 'Well we know why we never heard from them again', this is just like that."


Didn't see the Grammys. Just watched his performance on SNL via YouTube and thought his performance was spot-on great.

He's kind of understated as a performer. He seems like he'd fit in better at some small, smoke filled jazz club than a big stage show.

Thanks for all your pics tonight, Really made the thread.

This thread without at least one pic of KP's epic side boobage would have been useless.

A blessing upon you and your house.

/Also glad MCA got some props tonight.

Pontious Pilates: Watching a really good drummer play with Jack White makes me wonder... What is Meg White up to?

I'm hoping Mumford & Son's Best Album win will place them squarely in the Toto's "IV" category of musical relevance.

Okay. Saw Frank Ocean perform "Forrest Gump" at the Grammys. It's an odd song, but enjoyable and the performance was again good. I don't know what browntimmy was talking about.

Are you sure you weren't distracted by the pretty screen? It was dull, off-key, and I can't understand why the hell someone would write a dramatic song about Forrest Gump and expect to be taken seriously.

The song isn't about Forrest Gump, it's written from the perspective of Jenny falling in love with Forrest and it's really about first love. Or more precisely, it's about Frank's own first love, using Forrest and Jenny to tell the story. Forrest represents the guy Frank fell in love with and Frank is Jenny.
