  •  I Might Have Two Terabytes Of Music In My House (6+ / 0-)

    I am not a "hip" dude. I don't always follow the current music. With thrt said I am a big fan of Mumford & Sons.

    Oh just as an aside, I think this should have won every award tonight.

    •  Alabama Shakes was another fine performance (6+ / 0-)

      Prior to the show tonight, I had not been aware of Alabama Shakes. The lead singer, Brittany Howard, performed on stage with Mavis Staples in a group ensemble of amazing musicians and it was too hard to call a winner. What a great night, commercials and all. Thanks for posting this clip. I made an mental note to find out more about Alabama Shakes after watching the show, and you just made it easier.

      •  I Am So Out Of Touch (6+ / 0-)

        I have never heard of The Black Keys. But I can't stop watching this video.

        That is how I dance ....

        •  From When I Was 14-18 (3+ / 0-)

          in the 80s I used to go to this place and danced. I might not have done it well but it didn't matter. I don't often dance. But pushed well I can dance .

          This is often what we listen to.

        •  You're not out of touch (0+ / 0-)

          The only musicians in this diary whose music I have heard (not necessarily the songs indicated) are Dave Brubeck and Paul McCartney.

            If nothing else, it's near impossible not to have heard of Beyoncé. And if you came of age in the Brubeck & McCartney era, you should recall Janis Ian, too. And the only way you could have not heard of Taylor Swift is if you never go to the grocery store or anyplace else which sells magazines.

            •  Open your mind (0+ / 0-)

              I have never heard any of Beyoncé's music.  Never.  Couldn't name one of her songs (but at least I know she is a she). I do recall Janis Ian (apologies if I missed her mention; "At Seventeen" is an important song).

              As for "Taylor Swift" I couldn't begin to tell you what (or who) that is, and I do about 90 percent of the grocery shopping for my family.  I don't, however, buy magazines.

              You can choose to believe me or not.  I don't care.  But today's pop music could hardly be less significant than it already is.

          This is the kind of video I can appreciate. Not a fan so much of videos where they try to dramatise the song according to some videographer's lame-ass interpretation

    •  I caught the end of the Grammys, right when (2+ / 0-)

      they were doing the tribute to Levon Helm and Brittany from Alabama Shakes was part of that wonderful ensemble, then when the show was over I surfed over to the Palladia channel and they were airing an outdoor concert that included Alabama Shakes and Wilco (who I've seen 5-6 times). I definitely need to add Alabama Shakes to the must-see list. Sorry I missed Black Keys and Mumford but at least Mumford was part of that Levon tribute -- first saw The Band in 1969, great show!!
