Let’s hear it! What are some of the worst songs quality-wise to win Song of the Year?September 13, 2014 at 7:39 am #401994
“Don’t Worry, Be Happy”
“We Are the World”
“Wind Beneath My Wings” & “From A Distance” (I like Bette, but both of these sappy songs make me want to vomit)
“Sometimes You Can’t Make it On Your Own”
“Single Ladies” (It seriously took a whole group of people to write those lyrics????)
Actually, many of the choices in the 90’s were pretty crappy, considering what else was nominated.

Single Ladies – BeyoncÃ©September 13, 2014 at 8:28 am #401996
Need U Now – Lady A.September 13, 2014 at 9:09 am #401997
“hello dolly”September 13, 2014 at 9:20 am #401998
I’m sorry, but there is no justification for a novelty song such as that to have won Song of the Year. I would have certainly accepted a Record of the Year win had it been nominated in place of “Halo”. But the highest Songwriter’s Award in American music? For a fluff track? No.September 13, 2014 at 10:06 am #401999
“Sometimes You Can’t Make it on Your Own” – U2September 13, 2014 at 11:01 am #402000
Gonna definitely have to go with Single Ladies. Don’t know why it was even nominated let alone winning.September 13, 2014 at 12:28 pm #402001
If that lead girl of the Dixie Chicks was wanting to let the world know that she has no problems, saying “I made my bed and I sleep like a baby.” is the last thing that should have come from her mouth in the early 2007 Song of the Year winner “I’m Not Ready To Make Nice” when babies cry for their mama at night before they are finally able to sleep all the way through.
God bless you always!!!
P.S. When a person has no problems, isn’t a log what is it that people sleep like. (smiles)

Your hatred of the Dixie Chicks is really something to behold. You know “sleep like a baby” is a common saying, right? Not one they made up?
To me, “Unforgettable” is the only acceptable answer to this question. The song won a songwriting award 40 years after it was written and after it had been recorded and released by well over a dozen acts. It was a common standard by the time Natalie dubbed herself on her father’s decades-old version. It is beyond ridiculous that it was eligible and that it won. It would be like someone recording a new version of “Over the Rainbow” or “At Last” and having it win a songwriting award.September 13, 2014 at 1:22 pm #402003
“Single Ladies” is actually a cleverly written track. It might not fit the mold of “Song of the Year” category – but if you take away those glasses it was actually deserving IMO.September 13, 2014 at 1:29 pm #402004
“Don’t Worry, Be Happy”
“Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)”
“Sometimes You Can’t Make It On Your Own”September 13, 2014 at 1:39 pm #402005
Y’all are trying it with Single Ladies. I’m totally fine with its win. It was something different for that category and I like that they went for it. I also think it’s well written. Sure there are better written songs but c’mon it’s not that bad.September 13, 2014 at 2:07 pm #402006
Beyonce, “Single Ladies” (WTF? How was this even nominated in SOTY much less win? The lyrics are elementary school level.)
Lady Antebellum, “Need You Now” (Just a generic breakup/heartbreak song)
U2, “Sometimes You Can’t Make It On Your Own.”
