I love free music… well, I love free legal music. I may have to wait a while for another Mercedes Benz mixed tape but starting tomorrow (2/8) MSN Music is starting its Grammy blitz by giving away one free song from each category. A panel of music professionals is going to attempt to predict the winner in each category… then MSN Music will give away the song predicted to win. So, not only is it free music, it’s good, free music. You know it’s good, the professionals told you so.
Now, before you point out that I’m just being a corporate pawn to Microsoft let me say this… first: I am a total pawn, second: even if I weren’t a pawn I still like free music. So there, I’m a sell-out… but I’m a cheap, stingy sell-out… that must be worth something.
There will be one free song per day, starting on February 8th. Using my top-secret, internal Microsoft sources I’ve determined the order the songs will be released in is:
- Tuesday, Feb. 8: Best Male Pop Vocal Performance/Best Female Pop Vocal Performance
- Wednesday, Feb. 9: Best Rock Song
- Thursday, Feb. 10: Best Rap Song
- Friday, Feb. 11: Best R&B Song
- Saturday, Feb. 12: Best Country Song
So, there you are, in the greatest of corporate traditions a big company has told you what you’re going to like.
