    Get Lucky, Uptown Funk, Rolling In The Deep, Hello, I Will Always, and My Heart Will Go On were all my favourites from their release years.

    Humble, We Are Young, Thinking Out Loud, Radioactive and Stressed Out were great options for me too.

    2014, 2015 and 2017 had the most interesting lineup imo.

    “Bette Davis Eyes” & “(Just Like) Starting Over” are neck and neck with both “Just the Two of Us” & “Endless Love” neck and neck right behind them. “Best That You Can Do” is not the best all involved could have done. Although I don’t dislike the song or performance, I never got why it was so lauded. “Bette Davis Eyes” by a smidge.

    Odd question but was it only the instrumental version of Moon River that won in 1962?

    Curious because it won SOTY were Mancini was listed as composer and lyricist but if it was the version with lyrics that was nominated wouldn’t Audrey Hepburn also be a winner as of ROTY as well?

    I believe song of the year can cover multiple versions whereas record of the year is specific. For instance a similar situation happened a few years later with Mancini and the love theme from Romeo & Juliet. Record nomination was “Love Theme from Romeo & Juliet” but its corresponding song of the year nomination was the version that includes lyrics, “A Time For Us”.
