Since Use Somebody is a near-direct ripoff of several Snow Patrol and Coldplay songs, who are two U2 ripoffs themselves, these awards might as well have gone to U2.  :D :D :D ;)

hahaha very true..

OKAY ARE THEY NOT EVEN AT THE GRAMMYS?
cause I had no interest what so ever in wasting 3 hours watching this while I have so much homework.
ONLY WATCHING TO SEE U2  :'(

Why stop there? By that logic it should have gone to the Beatles.

The fact that the band isn't there tells you alot about what they thought their chances were tonight.  Have they ever missed when they won?

I have an insanely early morning, my friends.  I'm out and will catch you another time soon!

Cheers!

 ;D

Yeah, that's a stretch.....other than "Window in the Skies", their "Happiness is a Warm Gun" cover, the Streets vid, and I think a few quickshots of Sgt Pepper Beatles in the "Real Thing" vid, I don't see much of a direct musical or lyrical influence from the Beatles to U2. Bono likes to refer to them as idols on occasion, and shows a clear affection for John Lennon, but any influence in my opinion should be viewed as indirectly inspirational in the general rock and roll band sense.

On the other hand, "Use Somebody" is almost exactly the same tune as "Open your Eyes" by Snow Patrol, which in itself is almost exactly the same tune as Streets.

Lady Gaga was nominated for song of the year with Pokerface....the apocalypse is upon us
So what does that tell you about the stupid Grammy's.  I don't give 2 bleeps about awards.  Some of the best bands/artists in the world have never been nominated and they sold more records, packed more stadiums, and made unbelievable music.

forgot about "window in the skies ", that definitely has a Beatles sound to it.

My point is that all of contemporary music is based on a framework created by the Beatles if you want to trace it back far enough.

That framework is the musical world that we live in now and we're so familiar with it that we take it for granted.

Yet if U2 won a grammy today we'd all be saying how great it is and how this PROVES that they're still at the top of their game...

right?
