Orange Is the New Grammy

I tend to think the Grammy nominations are, by and large, bunk. Sure, some deserving people get nominated (woo woo, Sara Bareilles). But lots of other time, come on, really? Like, “Who Let the Dogs Out” won a Grammy. Whatever. But this year, I am genuinely happy about one nomination in particular. I’m thrilled that Regina Spektor’s “You’ve Got Time” was nominated (for Best Song Written for Visual Media, naturally). You know, that theme song you can’t stop humming to the show you can’t stop thinking about. You know, that “Orange Is the New Black” song. Those lyrics combined with those faces (from real-life former female prisoners) could not be more perfect. Hearing it again makes me ache for this show. And, you know, also for Alex Vause, for however long we get her this time around.
