Ultimate Grammy Collection

Ultimate Grammy Collection
What were you doing when “Monday, Monday” hit the charts? Where were you when you first heard “Black Hole Sun”? Raise your hand if you ever stood in front of a mirror with a hairbrush and sang along with “Happiest Girl in the Whole U.S.A.”.

Um . . . I have my hand up.

Did you ever dance to “Ray of Light” at a club or sing “Respect” on the way home from a hard “9 To 5” day at work? Have you ever been “Crazy in Love”? Does “At Seventeen” make you cry, or “Harper Valley PTA” make you laugh?

The Ultimate Grammy Collection is a 7 CD set that is a tribute and celebration of 50 years of Grammy award winning music and artists. I also found it to be a collection of unique and personal memories. I listened to all of the CDs, even the ones from the genres outside the world of Pop Music. Every song gave me a connection to a place and time in my past.

The CD set is broken up into individual genres with 16 songs in each collection. I have listed the genres and the artists at the end of this article as well as the links for the CDs on Amazon.com. You can pick your favorite genres, or as I would suggest, buy the entire collection. It’s a wonderful collection of music to have in your library.

The 50th Annual Grammy Awards will be held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California on February 10, 2008. The pre-televised portion of the show can be heard on XM Radio. The televised portion is scheduled to be broadcast on CBS at 8PM EST. A Grammy museum will also open in 2008. At this time, I’m keeping my fingers crossed about the televised show. I know that the writers have agreed not to picket; we are just waiting to hear if the unions involved will give a waiver for writers to work on the telecast. I will keep you updated as soon as I find out.
