I thought "Fit but don't ya know it" is their/best one - good to see the record industry not just going for the same old bricks in the wall...tombo said:I like The Streets, I love both albums.
It's very UK, so it seems that many of our friends from the US don't 'get it.' But having said that, most people in the UK are split too
- bit like Marmite, perhaps..?
I think the nomination for 'Dry Your Eyes Mate' is pretty weak. It's the song that's had the most airplay of all of Mike Skinner's songs, yet it's the most atypical of his style. I hope Keane win against that song.
But I hope he wins the other one. The Streets are a fabulous example of the brilliant and diverse music we have here.
I'm with you iGav. I can't believe the hype that they receive considering just how inanely dreadful they are. I'm afraid that the Steets boat left me on the shore with a puzzled look on my face, waving forlornly.iGav said:

If so, then it would be no surprise that the nominees suck. I've watched the Grammys once in the last 20 years because there's never anyone on that I want to see perform or honored.
I think that 95% of the time, whoever is being ultra-marketed will get the awards. It's up to you to search for music that doesn't suck.
Exacly how I feel, when I was 'blessed' with catching one of their videos on MTV2 I was absolutely certain that it was some kind of pi$$ take until it slowly dawned that they weren't actually being ironic.MacRy said:I can't believe the hype that they receive considering just how inanely dreadful they are.
