I did a 2006 Best Songs List from the music I had been listening to on my iPod, Internet, or even CD… no radio for me.  – so I thought I’d post this year’s also. In no particular order:

Grammy Nominees were announce, but won’t post (full list here)

Music was pretty much disappointing this year, only counting with what’s nominated, xD~ However, still decided to pick some… starting from the categories at the bottom of the list… the ones no one cares much about, but I do.

Producer of the Year Non-Classical – I’m guessing Timbaland… but would like seeing Mark Ronson there.

Best Song for Motion Picture – It so totally has to be Falling Slowly by Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova from the Once Soundtrack.

Best Score – It probably is Babel, but I would like Pan’s Labyrinth.

Best Soundtrack – ONCE… like, TOTALLY.

Other winners would be, Vince Gill for Country Album if wanting a chance to win the nod on Album of the Year. Dierks Bentley for Country song, if winning Best Male Country… though Stupid Boy by Keith Urban would be cool~ Duo country, Reba McEntire and Kelly Clarkson with their cooler version of Clarkson’s own Because of You.

The Eagles, because… well, it’s them. Would love Alison Krauss winning Female Country, but probably Carrie Underwood will get that if she wants a chance at Song of the Year. Kanye West will probably dominate the Rap category… I’m suspecting Foo Fighters winning in the Rock categories to up the chances of them winning Album and Record of the Year~~~ Also White Stripes for Icky Thump (even though I would like Lily Allen or Bjork for Alternative Album)… Feist for Pop Album, to up her chances for Best New Artist – I just don’t like Amy Winehouse, but she’s got the most chances solely based on buzz.

Would love love Christina Aguilera for Candyman… but would settle for Feist with 12345 if that means that would up her chances at beating Winehouse for New Artist. Timbaland’s song with Furtado and Timberlake is probably a shoo in…

Justice for D.A.N.C.E – awesome song from Cross… hope that also wins for Video because that video is so rocking! Michael Buble for Pop Vocal or Traditional yara-yara Album Call Me Irresponsable even though he’s an ass for cheating on Emily Blunt.

U2 for Windows in the Skies… which should’ve also been nominated for the video.

Song of the Year, Like a Star by Corinne Bailey Rae just because I dun want any of the others winning. xD

Ok, it’s been like a year since I last updated my music player, so I decided to do it now, since I’m traveling next week and won’t get a chance to do it later. The old player had old hits like “Ready to Make Nice” by the Dixie Chicks, “I Bet that You Look Good on the Dance Floor” by Arctic Monkeys, songs by OK Go, Norwegian hit Marit Larsen… now, this is the list:

  1. E Ha’i Ana Wau by Green Light Go (lyrics)
  2. Falling Slowly by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova
  3. Filter Factory by Dee
  4. Funky Dancers by Antigone
  5. Habanera by East Village Opera Company
  6. Johnny Negro by Quad Riot (lyrics)
  7. Little of your Time by Maroon 5
  8. My Alcoholic Friends by The Dresden Dolls
  9. Outta my Way by Damone
  10. Sur la Colline de Delos by Kazumi and Maia
  11. Takarajima by Kobukuro (lyrics)
  12. When I Get Where I’m Going by Brad Paisley and Dolly Parton
  13. WINDING ROAD by Ayaka and Kobukuro
