5.0 out of 5 stars One of Life's Simple Pleasures January 29, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Every year, the Grammy nominees are named, and the annual version of this CD is released. This is an entertainment event I anticipate every year. The music presented is always wonderful, and it's never disappointing! This year was no exception. I might have overlooked some of these gems if they weren't offered in this format. The track "Body and Soul," by Tony Bennett and Amy Winehouse, for example, is a hauntingly beautiful tribute to the artists.

It's fun to load up these discs when taking a long road trip. While listening, the road trip is transformed into a walk down memory lane as you remember where you were, and what you were doing, when each song was released. Listening makes the time and the miles fly.

The Grammys started in 1959, but this series didn't start until 1995. It's too bad the producers haven't released discs from previous years Grammys. With the caliber of music included, they would be sure to sell, especially now that Baby Boomers are starting to retire.

By Lynn G.
Format:Audio CD
I'm a female dancing, music loving Boomer (born in the early 1950's) who was sadly suffering from lack of appreciation for many artists from the 1980's forward. I admit I was still busy replacing my fabulous '60s and '70's record albums with CD's and finding great jazz CD's. This year (2012) my mind opened and I watched the ENTIRE Grammy's. I was musically REBORN! If you are a Boomer who's stuck in the music of our youth, I suggest you get this CD to help rocket you out into appreciation of some fabulous music produced by offspring of our generation. No, I don't like every tune, and probably only a handful will become true classics. Just use your player's arrow forward button...but do give every song at least three listens before you judge. SOME GREAT MUSIC AT A GREAT VALUE!

MY BOOMER EDITORIAL COMMENTS ON EACH TRACK: (The * denotes my favorites and ** my SERIOUS favorites!)

1. **"Rolling in the Deep" by Adele: a great tune with interesting vocals and lyrics. I love the blues/gospel feel. This young woman can appeal to a wide age range, maybe because she bears her heart with honesty and without wild visual distractions.
2. "Grenade" by Bruno Mars : altruistic, pitiful, graphic and darkly humorous lyrics set to a great tune.
3. *"Firework"* by Katy Perry: has well placed, fun rhyming in a girl/woman self esteem anthem.
4. **"Moves Like Jagger"* by Maroon 5 with Christine Aguilera: This quick, catchy tune and rhythm can rocket ones rear end up to dance, exercise, and remember the power of sex in youth.
5. "Super Bass" by Nicki Minaj: Catchy Hip Hop song. The lyrics indicate a scattered brain pouring out a mouth.
6. "What's My Name" by Rhianna featuring Drake: Catchy Techno Hip Hop tune about sex (no surprise) sung by a girl with a serious crush.

5.0 out of 5 stars Always a good mix of genres February 11, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As one who likes all genres of music, I like these Grammy nominee albums precisely BECAUSE serveral categories are covered. It also helps me discover artists whose songs I may not have heard before. On this album, Foster the People and Blake Shelton were two artists who I gave a listen to for the first time, and liked them both. Of course there will be songs I don't care for - but then not many people will like every song nominated. As usual there were many more that I did like than didn't and therefore I was very pleased with this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Super collection of the Grammy hits February 29, 2012
Format:Audio CD
One of my favorite CD's to buy each year is the annual Grammy hits - all in one CD I get to listen to some of my favorite songs as well as other songs I may have missed or not noticed. This 2012 additiona was especially cool because of the hip hop songs that I really would have passed by and was able to really appreciate!

5.0 out of 5 stars Always Love These CD's August 3, 2012
By Camy
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This was an awesome CD. The Grammy nominees CD's are usually pretty good, but this one is better than the last few years. It is also nice to have such a variety of different genres of music versus hearing the same type of beat and voice over and over again for an hour.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2012 Grammy Songs February 26, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Each year I look forward to the Grammys and going out to buy the CD of the songs up for nomination. Some years are ok, but this year was a great one.

I like these compilations of the artist's top songs all on one CD. You get a broad spectrum of music from Tony Bennett and Amy Winehouse to Katy Perry to Lady Gaga.

The music ranges from some oldie remakes, country and western, and current pop hits. The mixture of genres and artists to me is more interesting as I feel I and not listening to one artist's two good songs surrounded by 8 of their other average songs. This CD contains 22 hits.

I love the Maroon 5 and the Christina Aguilera song "Moves like Jagger" and many of the other top songs. Get this CD and you will be entertained of over one hour with ever changing music artists and top hits. I liked it very much!
