Friday Playlist: Grammy Awards 2013



I am a big music fan. That is why the whole Friday Playlist came about. I can usually attach songs to certain periods in my life. There are songs that have gotten me through terrible times and songs that have added the exclamation mark to my best times. With that knowledge, you can imagine how excited I get for the Grammy Awards every year. I will admit that the show has been a disappointment in some years but I've tuned in every year since I was a little girl without fail. This year will be no exception. Sunday night, I'll be planted in front of the TV with my popcorn and wine watching the red carpet coverage and the show.

SO, it is only fitting that this week's playlist spotlights the Grammy nominees. Some nominees didn't make the playlist because I couldn't get access to the nominated songs through Grooveshark but the full list of nominees is below. Happy Friday!!
