[ # ] The Grammys sweet dreams answered for The Beatles tribute!
January 6th, 2014 under Alicia Keys, Annie Lennox, Beatles

The Grammys announced today that The Eurythmics are reuniting for music’s biggest night of the year to pay tribute to the biggest band ever, The Beatles.
On February 9, 1964, the Fab Four played The Ed Sullivan Show and music was changed forever. Exactly 50 years later, The Grammys is airing and they have some of the biggest names in music singing the tunes of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Star. Annie Lennox and her former partner, Dave Stewart, will get high off The Beatles’ hits with a little help from their friends Alicia Keys and John Legend, Maroon 5, and John Mayer and Keith Urban.
Sorry if this doesn’t seem like a sweet dream to me, but Ken Ehrlich’s tribute to 2/9/64 was such a bust at the Emmys that I have low expectations for this one. I mean are we going to go into every commercial break with some music legend singing a Beatles song. I like most people went through a Beatles phase and understand their greatness, but do people under 30 feel the same way? Their Beatles is Nirvana, and to be honest I am not sure they know their songs well enough to care to hear them performed at The Grammys.
And if you are going to do the tribute to The Beatles, then you are sure as hell better have Sir Paul, Sir Ringo, Yoko Ono, Julian Lennon and Sean Lennon, Stella McCarthy and the rest of the second generation doing something during the show. Otherwise to me the tribute is a complete bust.
Finally, whatever else Ehrlich has planned for the night; please don’t have Carrie Underwood sing Yesterday again because that was beyond painful to our ears. I love her, but I hated her rendition of the Macca song.
