The 2010 Grammy Nominees for Producer of the Year

WhatUpWally? Says
Give Thanks, Give a Break, or Heap Cursings

Winner Danger Mouse – Give Much Thanks!
  • Broken Bells (Broken Bells) (A)
  • Dark Night Of The Soul (Danger Mouse And Sparklehorse) (A)
  • Tighten Up (The Black Keys) (T)
The real question is what took so long? The Broken Bells album was WUW?'s top album of 2010 and we were upset that we couldn't fit Dark Night of the Soul into the list as well. Even though DM only produce one track on The Black Keys 2010 release Brothers, his full production of Attack and Release still stands above most records in 2010. Danger Mouse has emerged as the 21st century version of Rick Rubin. Early DM fans remember the classic Mashup The Grey Album, which blended The Beatles White Album and Jay-Z's Black Album and most Gnarls Barkley fans don't even know who Danger Mouse is.
For a special treat, download some of DM's earlier work like Ghetto Pop Life with Gemini  or Mouse & The Mask with, legendary underground MC, MF Doom

Word on the street is, U2's new album is completely produce by Danger Mouse – can you say Grammy repeat?

Rob Cavallo – Give a Break

Cavallo is forgiven of the Paramore and Adam Lambert sins for working with Meat Loaf.
  • Brand New Eyes (Paramore) (A)
  • Hang Cool Teddy Bear (Meat Loaf) (A)
  • Happy Hour (Uncle Kracker) (A)
  • Music Again (Adam Lambert) (T)
  • Soaked (Adam Lambert) (T)
  • Sure Fire Winners (Adam Lambert) (T)
  • Time For Miracles (Adam Lambert) (T)
  • When It's Time (Green Day) (T)
Dr. Luke – Heap Many Many Curses
  • California Gurls (Katy Perry Featuring Snoop Dogg) (T)
  • For Your Entertainment (Adam Lambert) (T)
  • Hungover (Kesha) (T)
  • Kiss N Tell (Kesha) (T)
  • Magic (B.o.B. Featuring Rivers Cuomo) (T)
  • Take It Off (Kesha) (T)
  • Teenage Dream (Katy Perry) (T)
  • Your Love Is My Drug (Kesha) (T)
Although every innocent 20 something with repressed sexuality has been given a naughty outlet through the Christian - turned faux lesbian - Katy Perry, we still cannot forgive Dr. Luke for his continual shitty assault on American culture.

WhatUpWally? thinks Katy Perry should have married Kid Rock instead of Russell Brand – it would be like some serious white trash but patriotic love making.

Ke$ha doesn't deserve sarcasm, we think she knows how bad she is… Can you hate a pop star who hates herself more?

Dr. Luke also produced I Kissed a Girl and Miley's classic Party in the U.S.A. Looks like Luke, the ex Rawkus producer, is working on Britney's new albums as well – Check out the Rolling Stone Article.

RedOne – Give Some Thanks and Some Curses
WhatUpWally? still cannot decide if GaGa is awesome, horrifying, or some sort of strange gimmick.
  • Alejandro (Lady Gaga) (S)
  • Bad Romance (Lady Gaga) (S)
  • The Fame Monster (Lady Gaga) (A)
  • I Like It (Enrique Iglesias Featuring Pitbull) (S)
  • More (Usher) (T)
  • We Are The World 25 For Haiti (Artists For Haiti) (S)
  • Whole Lotta Love (Mary J. Blige) (S)
The Smeezingtons (Bruno Mars, Philip Lawrence, Ari Levine) – Give a Break
All the tracks on this list are forgivable because of Cee Lo's song Fuck You!
  • Billionaire (Travie McCoy Featuring Bruno Mars) (T)
  • Bow Chicka Wow Wow (Mike Posner) (T)
  • F*** You (Cee Lo Green) (S)
  • Island Queen (Sean Kingston) (T)
  • Just The Way You Are (Bruno Mars) (S)
  • Nothin' On You (B.o.B Featuring Bruno Mars) (T)
