    Everything is subjective, but the one I’ll never forget is Sisqo’s “The Thong Song,” nominated for Best R&B Song in 2000. I believe it was Shakespeare who first opined, “She had dumps luke truck, truck, truck, thighs like what, what, what.” 🙂

    I actually didn’t mind those nominations, but that reminds me of one that I did mind: Katy Perry’s “Roar.” It’s mostly a string of empowerment cliches. Plus, it was criticized for sounding like Sara Bareilles’s “Brave,” but even though they nominated Bareilles for Album of the Year, they didn’t nominate her for songwriting.

    Shake it Off bothers me because it is such lazy writing of rehashing of every other empowerment song ever. It also sounds like a collection of tweets Taylor Swift made and turn them into a song. Glad that it didn’t win. Would just encourage more mediocrity in songwriting

    I concur with “Roar,” “Brave” is the much better-written song and Bareilles the more talented songwriter. Plus, she has been snubbed over and over again by the Grammys.

    Also “All About That Bass.” I hate this song with every fiber of my being and will forever be irritated with the Grammy nods it received.

    Single Ladies winning, let alone being nominated for, SOTY is one of the biggest farces in Grammy history.

    To me, the worst songs are “Not Ready To Make Nice” from the Dixie Chicks and “Stay” from Sugarland which were both given Best Song Grammy awards. I can’t feel sorry for the girl in the Sugarland song because she knew what she was getting herself into and as for the Dixie Chicks song, I have just one question. Is the lead girl still crying for her mama every two hours at night? She says in that song, “I made my bed and I sleep like a baby.” (trying not to smile)

    God bless you always!!!

    Definitely.  I enjoy the song, but best-written song of the year?  Bizarre.  It’s a great record and an absolutely iconic music video, but as song on its own? No way.

    Stay With Me is also a strange choice for SOTY to me.  Great vocals, but there’s nothing overly impressive about the actual song, itself.
