Grammy Winners

Here is a list of the Grammy Winners since their beginning. My goal in 2016 is to have an arrangement for each and every song for you – so keep checking this page each month. As you look at this list – you will see the Grammy people really have a strange way of classifying songs!!!

There really is NO ROCK AND ROLL winners until the Beatles! (with the exception of Let’s Twist Again) and then the Beatles lost their first year to Petula Clark’s Downtown!! And Alley Cat won in R n R???? Where are the awards for ELVIS????? and Jerry Lee Lewis???? Chuck Berry?
