Mister D: These are in no particular order. The only criteria they meet is that they never left my iPod over the year and/or I played them over and over again. I think most of these would be eligible for Grammy’s. I cut them off at the September deadline I believe. If not, oh well. Others that just came out that seem promising for next year are Kanye West, Cee-Lo Green, and Rihanna’s new ones.
Lady Gaga â€“ The Fame
V V Brown â€“ Travelling Like The Light
Bettye Lavette â€“ Interpretations
Scissor Sisters â€“ Night Work
Kylie Minoque â€“ Aphrodite
Robyn â€“ Body Talk (any of the 3 she put out)
Sheryl Crow â€“ 100 Miles From Memphis
Kid rock â€“ Born Free
Sara Bareilles – Kaleidoscope Heart
Chas Sandford – Wag More Bark Less
Elton John & Leon Russell â€“ The Union
Taylor Swift â€“ Speak Now
Eminem – Recovery
Others that I loved from the independent field were from Janine Wilson, Kamilah Marshall, and Shayna Steele. All three, class acts, worth a listen.
