2105 GRAMMY Predictions

Ok, so here’s who I think SHOULD win… and hopefully they do. Basically, I’m rooting for Sam Smith (though, I’d love Bastille to win New Artist). I called it a few months ago, 2104 was basically all about Sam Smith!

Album of the year: Sam Smith In The Lonely Hour - any other would be a huge upset and just wrong. Even you Queen B..

Record of the year: Sam Smith “Stay With Me” – Such a strong song. Love “Chandelier” by Sia, “Shake It Off” by Taylor… but it’s all about “Stay With Me” and not the bass…

Song of the Year: Sam Smith “Stay With Me” – wouldn’t mind Hozier winner one as well.. his album is so strong. Yes, I know it’s about the song, and “Take Me To Church” is massive.

New Artist: Sam Smith. I like Haim, and Bastille are one of my faves of all time… but it’s all Sam.

Pop Solo Performance: Sam Smith “Stay With Me”

Alternative Album: My pick – Alt-J “This Is All Yours”, but I think Jack White will take it.

Rock Album: The Black Keys Turn Blue

Rap Album – I’m rooting for Common and Eminem, but absolutely clueless as to who will take it.

Urban Contemporary Album – Beyoncé – Beyoncé

Country Album… meh.

Miro’s 52 Songs of 2014

As 2014 is coming to an end, here are the 52 songs that defined the year for me. These are the songs that resonated with me and some I had on repeat for days on end.

There were several albums that dominated my listening this year, (and I’ll post my albums of 2014 soon), so I limited this playlist to one song per artist.Also, I chose Spotify as the means of creating this list, so Taylor Swift is not on it, but otherwise, “Blank Space” would be included on this list.

In no particular order, here are the 52 songs that defined 2014 for me:

What were songs that you enjoyed in 2014 that weren’t on my list?
