Grammys: Vocals off at the Baghdad Costco

Some nods make some sense on a nominees list longer than the gas line at the Baghdad Costco.

No complaints about the pop instrumental category. That means no singing, kids. No cooing off-the-shoulder grifters or white-hat frauds droning on about the new baby they just sired with their fourth wife.

Instrumental music by Daniel Lanois, Les Paul, Herbie Hancock and Burt Bacharach made the cut. Now, none of these guys have done anything vaguely exciting in a long, long, long time, and we’ve heard only a little of their nominated fare.

But any pop music that does away with an egomaniac singer is fine with us.
