Well, I was waiting for Rocco Palmo (see link to the side) to post his "Churchman of the Year," but it seems to be delayed. I guess then for the news of the day I'll just say that I can't believe that Rolling Stone chose Crazy by Gnarls Barkley as the best song of 2006. I mean, really. Where's Far Away? Or Waiting on the World to Change?

As for iTunes' opinion, the best songs were: (best seller) Bad Day (ugh) and (staff favorite) again, Crazy. But, the best selling albums were The Fray, How to Save a Life, and John Mayer, Continuum. If anyone cares, the staff favorite in the album department was Eyes Open, by Snow Patrol.

Anyway, I'll be interested to see how the Grammys play out. They got it right last year, giving U2 their proper due, but we'll see what happens this year with John Mayer and his five nominations. No-one deserves recognition more, for his stellar album Continuum.

As always, stay tuned and God Bless.

I liked Eyes Open; I think I liked the Gnarles Barkley gimmicks more than the song "Crazy"! :)

I think "chasing cars" is a bit over played. I do like other songs from Eyes Open more.
