Record of the Year
Winner: “Sunny Came Home” by Shawn Colvin
Losers: “Where Have All the Cowboys Gone” by Paula Cole, “Everyday Is a Winding Road” by Sheryl Crow, “MMMBop” by Hanson, “I Believe I Can Fly” by R. Kelly
Shafted: “MMMBop.” My inner thirteen-year-old-self has bad bangs, awkward pants and unvanquished rage over this slight, and will go furiously journal in her room—alone, for hours, with a pink pen—if challenged. Don’t make me do it.
