Grammys 2015: Who Should Win vs. Who Will Win

From Beyoncé singing Martin Luther King’s favorite gospel song to Kanye, Rihanna, and Paul McCartney teaming up for what is sure to be a performance dripping in denim, this Sunday’s Grammys offer a number of reasons to watch that have little to do with the awards themselves. But most importantly, between inter-generational collaborations that no one asked for, the Recording Academy will give out statues, many of them to the same group of superstars they recognize every year.

Beyoncé Says “Goodbye to All That”

How many miles to Brooklyn?
Three score miles and ten—
Can I get there by subway at night?
Yes, and back again—
If your feet are nimble and light
You can get there by subway at night.

It is easy to see the beginnings of things, and harder to see the ends.

25 Songs That Perfectly Capture the Female Experience

A few months back, with what we intended to be a wink, Flavorwire brought you a playlist of misandry anthems that explored some of the stronger reactions to the patriarchy through song. Of course, not every song written from the female perspective qualifies as such, or, indeed, factors in men at all. Some aim to explore what it means to be a woman in a relation to other women, be it our friends or mothers or children. Many take society’s expectations, beauty standards, and double standards to task. Through these 25 songs, we explore just a few facets of what it means to be a woman navigating the… Read More

What Pitchfork’s Top 10 Songs of 2014 Say About Us

It’s a December tradition here at Flavorwire that we take a look at Pitchfork’s Top 10 Songs of the Year, and think about what they might say about the generation who’s listening to them. This year’s Top 10 is a diverse selection that perhaps reflects the disconnected and fractured nature of the year that saw their release — so anyway, join us as we overanalyze and overthink just what it might all mean. … Read More
