Here’s paying an ode to the stars of the night,
The ones who are known to strike all the musical notes right!
Everyone makes music, but there are always just a few who strike the right chords and take home a Grammy. The musical awards night that saw its origin in the Hollywood Walk of Fame project in the 1950s, drew the curtains to yet another glamorous night on Sunday, 10th Feb 2013. Let’s take a look at those maestros who took home the gliding gramophone.
Off the Record!
Gotye and Kimbra’s number; “Somebody That I used to Know” has left everyone’s ‘Eyes Wide Open’ after winning a Grammy for being the Record of the Year. This category is the one that recognizes the musical achievements of all the producers, mixers, engineers and the artist who have worked on the track instead of rewarding the solos only. This particular number has been Gotye’s single up-to-date hit and received this significant recognition for breaking through the hip-hop and dance-dominated Top 40 charts.
The Album Amalgam!
The victorious march of Mumford & Sons for their album towards the stage when their album “Babel” was awarded Album of the Year was a spectacle to reckon with. Babel has known to sell 600,000 copies in the very week that it was released in. It has raked up to 1.7 million dollars in sales which has catapulted it to the fourth position of the best selling album in the States.
The Young Grung!
Now this one was bound to be the favourite of the ones who are young at heart. The number “We Are Young” created by the indie-pop trio, FUN has been conferred with the Song of the Year award. This creation owes its symphony to the members of FUN, who are Jack Antonoff, Nate Ruess and Andrew Dost and produced by Jeff Bhasker.
What FUN it must have been to weave the words of this beautiful number into with the most wondrous musical notes.
Second smash for No.1
The much loved FUN was also bestowed with the Grammy for “Best New Artist” too. They have surely covered up the distance from being the musical amateurs to award winning artists in no time. Each of the members have excellent theatrical records as they’ve heartily worked with bands such as Steel, Train along with participating in ventures with the who’s who of the music industry such as Beyonce, Kayne West and Drake amongst others.
On a Parting Note
Our very own brand ambassador and personal favourite, Sir Paul McCartney also stole his share of limelight when he walked away with the Grammy for the ‘Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album’ for Kisses On The Bottom.
