    • The Grammy winners over the years especially back then were usually poor choices. I didn’t watch them for 20 years after A Taste Of Honey got it for best new artist over Elvis Costello. I can carry a grudge lol. … All you need to do is look at the awards in the 60’s- you have all that great music 1964 onward and most of the awards went to lame ass songs and artists.
