The December Playlist: Grammys Special


IT is that time of year again!

I am not referring to Christmas but the whatever-number-we-are-on-th Grammy Awards. It is that occasion where some of music’s best – and those thoroughly undeserving – get recognised for their hard work. There are some notable omissions from the nominations (naming no names) but some great acts recognised. Beyoncé leads the list, and so gets one of her songs featured, but there are other great acts getting their music exposed – including Metallica and Frank the Rapper. Of course, there are some new releases from the ‘ordinary’ artists out there: those not in the Grammy sightline; going about their careers as always. As December starts to blossom, I will start leaning towards Christmas tracks: until that merciless moment arrives, enjoy some wonderful non-tinsel-infused songs.

Two-and-a-bit weeks to go and it is Christmas. I am noticing a decided slowing-down among music’s most prominent and prolific. Maybe there is less demand this time of year – as the awards have been handed and end-of-year lists cemented – so there is less impetus and demand. Be sure to brace yourself for a wave of 2017 music in a few weeks. Musicians will be racing out the blocks in an attempt to make that first, big strike – what an exciting proposition!
