Weekend Video - The Grammys

With so many award shows being cancelled I thought I'd pull out some highlights from last year's Grammy Awards for anyone feeling award deprived. The first - Gnarls Barkley's live version of "Crazy" - made my hair stand on end with it's strangely slowed down tempo, and I realized for the first time why the song was such a hit. (I'm still not sure what the airline pilot outfits mean.) But this version of "Crazy" made it seem like the signal song of the year.

The Corinne Bailey Rae/John Legend/John Mayer medley is nothing more than a look at three original and ascendant performers. As in photography, no matter how well traveled the road may be, fresh talent always finds a way.

Glad to have discovered this blog (via TheSartorialist) I'll study it carefully.
So far great photography choices and I like your music tastes too.
Have a nice day!
