    What are your favourite winners, hot takes from this category, and biggest snubs?

    Here’s a hot take from me: “She Drives Me Crazy” should have won in 1990 instead of “Wind Beneath My Wings”.

    2006 is probably the strongest lineup in history.

    WINNER – Boulevard of Broken Dreams – Green Day
    Feel Good Inc. – Gorillaz
    Gold Digger – Kanye West
    Hollaback Girl – Gwen Stefani
    We Belong Together – Mariah Carey

    All 5 songs were completely win-worthy, but I’d probably give it to Gorillaz.

    My favorite winner will always be Somebody That I Used To Know, but I think Rolling in the Deep and Need You Now were strong too.

    Old Town Road was robbed.

    Old Town Road was robbed.

    I agree. Say what you want about it, but no song last year had more impact than Old Town Road.

    This is America is the only decent winner in recent history.

    This category is a clusterfuck of awful top 100 music.

    Random thoughts on this category:

    I still remember how pleasantly surprised I was to see them put M.I.A and Paper Planes in here. It would’ve been an all-time great winner but likely never had a chance.

    The back to back wins for U2 were very weird. Ms. Jackson should’ve won over Walk On especially because Hey Ya was snubbed a few years later.

    24K Magic was the weakest nominee the year it won (The Story of OJ is a great record even if it wasn’t a hit). That was the best lineup of the past decade despite being male dominated.

    1985 RECORD OF THE YEAR

    “What’s Love Got to Do with It” Tina Turner – WINNER
    “Hard Habit to Break” Chicago
    “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” Cyndi Lauper
    “The Heart of Rock & Roll” Huey Lewis and the News
    “Dancing in the Dark” Bruce Springsteen

    Tina Turner definitely deserved this one. When Doves Cry by Prince & The Revolution and Jump by the The Pointer Sisters should have been nominated.

    Take out Chicago and Huey Lewis, add in “When Doves Cry” and “Jump” and you have the perfect 1985 lineup.
