Chance the Rapper “The Big Day” hurrmmm….this is his Reputation, either you like it or hate itSeptember 8, 2019 at 4:15 am #1203063071
Seriously dude, Beyonce doesn’t even write a single song by herself. Taylor wrote a full album by herself. That’s why Beyonce got no AOTys compared to Adele and Taylor both got 2
Did you watch any of the music theory in that video? Did you decide that Taylor has songs with more interesting use of modes, chord progressions and changes in time signature? Or do you just not like Beyoncé? She was credited just like the three other writers. The award is for the song and all of the songwriters.September 8, 2019 at 4:49 am #1203063093
soty is all about lyrics.
Lyrics are important in country music and pop, but not everyone voting in the general field is from a country/pop background. People from Jazz, Classical and Progressive Rock backgrounds might have quite different priorities.
Perhaps she was unlucky to miss out with “Blank Space” which was probably better than any song by Ed Sheeran with his Hallmark greeting-card cliché lyrics.September 8, 2019 at 5:30 am #1203063134
Knowing Sheeran, he won’t attend unless he’s nominated in the GF.
I think “I Don’t Care” isn’t far fetched for RoTY. The song is a big hit. It isn’t a good song, but are most of the other contenders good songs to begin with?
If he’s nominated then yea, I bet they’ll try to set it up.
yeah, I don’t understand why Ed’s ego is so big.
he has only 4 GRAMMYs, and only 2 before he skipped the 2018 ceremony where he won the other 2.
even Gaga attended that year, in the middle of her tour and knowing she would lose to Ed that wasn’t even present, I guess he still has a thing or two to learn about being humble and gratefulSeptember 8, 2019 at 5:37 am #1203063144This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.September 8, 2019 at 7:03 am #1203063294
If Vampire Weekend and The National latest albums are really that good, as solid as Modern Vampire or Sleep Well Beast then, I wouldn’t hesitate to put them as contender for AOTY…..September 8, 2019 at 7:38 am #1203063312
Blank space should have won soty. It was by far best song of the 5 nominees
“Alright” begs to differ.September 8, 2019 at 7:58 am #1203063330

Rock has been absent in AOTY since 2016. Even last year in a field of 8. Most of us have This Land in the lineup so that will be the rock representation. I think we can omit Vampire Weekend, The 1975, etc. Rock hasn’t been big enough to warrant two spots.September 8, 2019 at 8:02 am #1203063339
LOL another stan with horrible grammar. Next.September 8, 2019 at 8:06 am #1203063349
There’s nothing wrong with a female heavy lineup but a lot of these females overlap. They probably won’t nominate more than two of the same type of artist. Billie, Ariana, Taylor and Gaga are more or less the same artist on a surface level. Billie is obviously in. Ariana and Taylor are battling for the same spot. The former has a lot more going for her so she’s in. Gaga is a wildcard because while she should be battling with Ariana and Taylor for that spot, her project is not the typical popstar music. She had more of a reinvention and was in her own lane. I’m still on the fence about her. Lizzo and Lana are not really pop stars in the same sense.September 8, 2019 at 8:06 am #1203063351

Can we stop with this Grammar Nazi thing? English is not everyone’s first language and even for myself it’s the third language. Some people just lack of manner what a shameSeptember 8, 2019 at 8:07 am #1203063354
What are the chances of Lover in SOTY ??September 8, 2019 at 8:09 am #1203063361

So pretty much I’m the only one who stick with Western Stars 😂
