The Grammy Awards ratings have been in slow decline for more than a generation, but from year to year they're all over the map, presumably driven by the top award winners for that year. I wouldn't know, since as far as I'm concerned all the music the world ever needed was recorded between 1964 and 1968, in Detroit. (Although, even I knew that 1984 was the year of Thriller.) The 2009 Grammy Awards air at 8pm Eastern time Sunday on CBS.
