The Jammie Awards!!!

I was sitting here putting together a long, drawn out post about this year's Grammy nominations...then I was hit with a wall of frustration and disbelief at some of the choices, that I said "efph it", I need my own awards.

After all, a blog isn't a blog without awards, right?

I present to you, the 2008 Jammie Awards for the jamminest jams that jammed in 2008 (or at least "2008" as defined by the Grammy people). remember, folks...there are "songs", and there are "jams". If you don't know the difference yet . . .I can't help you.

Winners in blue.
I'm having WAY too much fun with this!
