This is a very interesting category. What wins were deserving, who should have won what year, and what songs should’ve been nominees?
I’ll start: U2’s “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” losing to fucking “Somewhere Out There” is one of the most egregious losses in this category.
So is an Ed Sheeran song beating out the masterpiece that is “Alright”.ReplyDecember 11, 2020 at 8:39 pm #1203913323
Blank Space should’ve won.
If we’re talking about non-nominated tracks, Fiona Apple’s Paper Bag & Extraordinary Machine should’ve won.
Was Losing my Religion nominated? It also should’ve won.ReplyCopy URL

Yes, it was. For both, in fact. It should’ve won both.ReplyCopy URL

Put Your Records On deserved over Not Ready to Make Nice
NO. That is the one category the Dixie Chicks deserved that year. Corinne didn’t deserve either of her ROTY/SOTY noms. (BTW, the other Dixie Chicks awards should’ve gone to Gnarls Barkley and JT.)ReplyCopy URL

Royals is my favourite win of the decade here, especially given the influence Lorde’s first album seemed to have on later artists.
Thinking Out Loud over Alright stung, especially given Ed’s album had been nominated the year before. So weird that he was even allowed to submit.ReplyCopy URL

The back-to-back Roberta Flack wins were iconic
The tie between Evergreen and Debby Boone was a ****ing embarrassment.ReplyCopy URL

We Belong Together deserved over Sometimes You Can’t Make It on Your Own
This was a slap in Mariah’s face. WBT was the song of the decade. It should’ve won.ReplyCopy URL

Literally. Billboard backs it up.
The fact that even the Grammy producers played WBT when U2 was sooo telling.ReplyCopy URLDecember 12, 2020 at 12:37 am #1203913664
Yes, it was. For both, in fact. It should’ve won both.
yes that was crazy. That’s an iconic song. Actually REM is my favorite band ever-they are the best band/songwriters in the history of pop/rock/indie music. And the fact that they didn’t win for that track is crazy.
in my mind they deserved nominations/wins for AOTY for:
LIFES RICH PAGEANT
OUT OF TIME
AUTOMATIC FOR THE PEOPLE
NEW ADVENTURES IN HI FI
And they should’ve won SOTY for
Fall on me,
It’s the end of the world as we know it,
Losing my Religion &
Man on the MoonReplyCopy URLDecember 12, 2020 at 12:40 am #1203913669
Norman Fucking Rockwell deserved over bad guy
You Oughta Know deserved over Kiss from a Rose
If NFR didn’t win, Lover or Bring my flowers now should’ve won. Bad guy is one of the worst SOTY winners in recent history.ReplyCopy URL
