Early Grammy Nomination
By Braaak, of course, who is not a member of any Academy that nominates anyone for anything. Nor am I the most talented singer/songwriter of my generation. I'm also not a music producer.
Song of the Year: Viva La Vida by Coldplay.
If you listen to the radio at all you know this is not a controversial choice. Other than it being a good song, my reasons for picking it may not be so obvious. As follows:
1. This is the 1st Coldplay song that I can remember where they don't sound like they're trying to imitate U2.
2. The violin(s) arrangement is awesome, especially for a pop song.
It may be chick music, as I've heard some say, but I think it's a winner.
