I was too busy covering the Grammys to pay close attention to the broadcast itself, but from what I saw, it seemed to be a great show. It didn’t feel cheap or chintzy, it didn’t seem to be trying too hard to push certain artists or grab viewers, and it’s hard to argue with an Adele sweep, regardless of the fact that I need a good six years before I will ever willingly hear “Rolling In The Deep” again.
*based on absolutely no criteria whatsoeverThere are a lot of year-end lists claiming that so-and-so songs are the “ten best.” Isn’t that ridiculous? Music is subjective, and who was able to listen to every single song released in 2011 in order to be qualified to decide which are the best?
Clearly none of these lists can ever be “right,” because none of them are 100% identical to the one below.
Here are the actual 10 best fucking pop singles of 2011. Sorry you had to wade through so many other, less valid opinions just to get here!
I don’t get too into The Grammys; music is so subjective, and even more than the Emmys or Oscars, the Grammys often seem a little behind the times. Yes, they’re catching up — last year’s big victor, Arcade Fire, deservedly bested Katy Perry, Eminem, and Ladies Antebellum and Gaga. But was it a fluke?
