{The Scientist covered by Willie Nelson}

Monday, February 13, 2012



Did anyone else watch the Grammys last night? Loerke highlights included: Adele, Bon Iver, The Civil Wars, Taylor Swift's performance, and this Willie Nelson Chipotle commercial. The only thing I wish they would have done differently was given Nicki Minaj's 4 minutes to The Civil Wars so they could have finished their song! Anyone else agree?

Willie Nelson's Chipotle commercial was great! And I like his cover better than the original!

Love anything by Willie and thought that commercial was great - we eat there several times a week! I enjoyed the Foo Fighters speech about real music - very appropriate given some of the performances last night :)

LOVED this song! And I totally agree. So bummed The Civil Wars only got a few minutes on stage! Saw them in concert a couple weekends ago! Love them.

Loved Willie's cover and the commercial. I was little entranced by the animation and definitely saddened that most of our food industry is so automatized now. I'm thankful for Chipotle!

From what I've been hearing Nicki Minaj's performance was awful. I'm so glad I shut the tv off before then!

And, I am so happy that music is now trending back towards actual bands and groups and not the hyped up, over-stylized, and autotuned artists!

I absolutely loved this commercial too and was quite surprised at the end when it was for Chipotle! But I am happy that larger businesses are catching on to this trend. And Bon Iver= LOVE! So glad he won.

I LOVE the Willie cover - love love love! Better than the original!

Also, I agree on the Nicki thing - she was wierd & scary!

I had the channel turned to the Grammy's but hardly paid much attention to it... I must say though, that the Chipotle commercial DEFINITELY caught my attention. I was in complete awe at the end (finding out that it was a Chipotle ad). Overall, I really liked the message of it.

Unfortunately didn't watch the Grammys last night (we don't have any channels)...but LOVE Chipotle...as if they even need to advertise! My husband is constantly tallying up gift cards around birthday time to " X number of Chipotle burritos" :)

Bon Iver's acceptance speech was one of the highlights of the show. Fo Sho.

I think that the only one who enjoyed Nikki's performance was that Miss Lady Gaga.

Totally agree!
