Music Monday: Grammy Nominees

It’s Music Monday! What does that mean? The Central MississippiRegional Library System has a ridiculous amount of FREE to you resources available for patrons. One of those is Freegal, a free and legal service that now allows patrons to download five songs each week for FREE (notice the emphasis on free). Every Monday we’ll be picking five songs that we love that are available on Freegal for you to download.

As the 2016 Grammy Nomination list went live thismorning with some amazing music, I thought I’d share five of the songs that were nominated for a Grammy that you can download on Freegal. Give them a listen, add them to your streaming playlists on Freegal (we can stream for up to three hours every single day now! How cool is that?!), download them if you like.

Uptown Funk, Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars (Nominated for: Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance)

Ex's & Oh's, Elle King (Nominated for: Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song)

Moaning Lisa Smile, Wolf Alice (Nominated for: Best Rock Performance)

Hold Back the River, James Bay (Nominated for: Best Rock Song)

Coffee, Miguel (Nominated for: Best R&B Song)

Plus, two of the artists nominated for Best New Artist have lots of songs for you to listen to and download, including

Meghan Trainor
Courtney Barnett

So give these songs a listen. Do you think they all deserved the Grammy nom?
