Just like I made a playlist for the 60s, the good old 1970s gets its own spotify playlist.
I’ve tried to cover as much ground as I could – from disco (Bee Gees, ABBA), Heavy Metal (Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin), R&B, funk, and soul (Al Green, Isaac Hayes, Marvin Gaye), lo-fi and punk (Buzzcocks, The Clash, New York Dolls), soft rock (Fleetwood Mac, Elton John), singer-songwriter (Cat Stevens, Joni Mitchell, James Taylor), to good old rock & roll (Bowie, Springsteen, Aerosmith). I also tried to throw in some deep tracks, including songs from Ann Peebles, Candi Staton, The Damned, David Essex, Dr. John, Fela Kuti, Freda Payne, Jorge Ben Jor, The Osmonds, Richard Hell, Rodriquez, The Slits, and more.
And yes, the Guardians of the Galaxy and Dazed and Confused soundtracks are on here too.
I was going to write a long piece on the 2013 Grammys, but I figured that showing pictures of my reactions would suffice.
Here are some visuals for my reactions to some of the night’s bigger revelations.
When my female friend asked me why Justin Beiber was not nominated for a Grammy.
Whenever LL Cool J mentioned anything about Twitter.
Anytime Taylor Swift was on TV
When I realized Wiz Khalifa was actually asked to perform at the Grammys.
When the Black Keys played with Dr. John.
When Gotye beat out Fiona Apple, Bjork, M83, and Tom Waits for a Grammy.
When Jack White performed.
When Frank Ocean performed.
When Mumford & Sons won the Album of the Year Grammy.
When I realized that My Bloody Valentine was not asked to perform at the Grammys.
When I realized that most of my friends don’t actually watch the Grammys.
When I read all the funny tweets making fun of the Grammys.
