Ask me in 5 years if "Boys & Girls" made it onto the Best Songs Ever list. Cause it just might.
You will never see a Brittany Howard on American Idol among the admittedly talented yet utterly unoriginal and forgettable Adele-wanna-be's. Neither are you likely to see an Alabama Shakes (or Over the Rhine or Langhorne Slim, for that matter) on the Grammy's alongside the sound-alike, gotta-get-naked-cause-that's-all-I-got Rihanna/Katy Perry/Nicki Minaj types. Sadly, you might never know that there is a world of amazingly talented and completely unique people out there making some of the best art imaginable because they will probably never get the airtime or press they honestly deserve (although you could argue they will be better for it).
And that is why I love the Internet. Amen.
