Post-Grammy “What I’m Digging That They Didn’t” Playlist – aka “Welcome to Hipster Heartbreak”
Today we’ve got some monsters, some mavens, some Basement Jaxx, some MGMT, some “Kids,” some Cudi, some Jeezy, some Common, some Lily, and some of her womanizing problems…
Has anybody seen my disco stick?
So, LoveGame… doesn’t play
Its remixes though… go harder than Baltimore: dig it, dug it, done
Paws for the cause: now dance.
No MGMT didn’t win either… so yes, they got a fair share of iPod airplay today – apropos as the Grammys were quite juvenile last night. Timeout: Grammys, meet the corner.
Misery loves company; her nickname is sorrow, her mister’s name is Cudi
Two birds, one stone: no Grammys
Lily Allen: proof that the UK and US: still hold grudges. British English is a crazy language: chips/fries, crisps/chips, lift/elevator, chavette/ke$ha, etc. Get this, what Q Magazine calls “Track of the Year,” the Grammys don’t even have a word for – oh wait, “unlisted.” Crazy Brits and their slang.
Lily Allen: proof that covering Grammy nominated artists – no matter how well – doesn’t help your chances… or theirs. No shoes, no shirt, no service, no stauette.

Fear chills, Fame Kills
