Bush first launched the recording in 1985, so it received’t be eligible for document of the yr, although a stay or alternate recording of it may very well be. The Recording Academy’s present Grammy rule e book explains: “A track…will need to have been launched on a recording for the primary time, or achieved prominence for the primary time, throughout the present eligibility yr.”

How did the track fare with Grammy voters in 1985? It wasn’t even nominated, although it got here out pretty late within the eligibility yr (on Aug. 5, 1985, lower than two months earlier than the eligibility yr closed on Sept. 30). It peaked at No. 30 on the Sizzling 100 on Nov. 30. That’s not unhealthy, however it’s under the extent {that a} document usually wanted again then for a nomination in a marquee class.

All 5 of the 1985 nominees for document of the yr had been prime 10 hits on the Sizzling 100; three of them had been No. 1 hits. 4 of the 5 nominees that yr for finest pop vocal efficiency, feminine had been prime 5 hits on the Sizzling 100. (Lengthy-time Grammy favourite Linda Ronstadt rounded out the class with Lush Life, her follow-up to her smash album What’s New.)

Bush has by no means been a Grammy favourite. She has acquired simply three nominations and has by no means received. Furthermore, simply one in every of her nominations was for a recording. The opposite two had been for music movies.

Of her 10 studio albums, the one one to obtain a Grammy nomination was her sixth album, The Sensual World, which acquired a 1990 nod for finest different music efficiency. In that, the primary yr of that class, Bush misplaced to Sinéad O’Connor for I Do Not Need What I Haven’t Obtained.

Bush’s different two nominations had been for music movies. “The Complete Story” was nominated for finest idea music video (1987), however misplaced to Genesis’ “Land of Confusion.” “The Line, The Cross & The Curve” was nominated for finest music video, long-form (1995), however misplaced to Peter Gabriel’s Secret World Stay.

Bush and Gabriel had a collab, “Don’t Give Up,” on his 1986 album So, which was an album of the yr contender.

The one individuals who acquired nominations when So was within the working for album of the yr had been Gabriel, because the artist and co-producer, and Daniel Lanois, as his co-producer.

The Recording Academy is much extra beneficiant these days (maybe to a fault).

Stranger Issues: Music from the Netflix Unique Collection, Season 4 can be the second compilation soundtrack from a TV present to win within the class, following Boardwalk Empire: Quantity 1, which received 10 years in the past.

However even when the album wins, Bush would probably not win. The award on this class usually goes to the compilation producer and music supervisor. It goes to the artist solely within the occasion that the artist dominates the album, as Andra Day did final yr when The USA vs. Billie Vacation received within the class. With Stranger Issues, every of the 16 tracks on the album was recorded by a unique artist. From the present rule e book: “Award to principal artist(s) with vital contributing performances, and/or in-studio producer(s) of a majority of the tracks on the album. Within the absence of these, award to the person(s) proactively answerable for the idea and musical path of the album and for the choice of artists, track and producers, as relevant.”
