Créé par SiHo_92 le 25 Jan 2018 | Modifié pour la dernière fois par SiHo_92 le 11 fév 2019

This collection contains all songs (including their composers - not performers!) that have won a Grammy Award in the main category "Song of the Year".
The Grammies (originally: "Gramophone Awards") were established in 1958, first presented in 1959, and are managed by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences.
For the category Song of the Year, only those songs are nominated that "contain [quality] melody and lyrics and [are] either a new song or a song first achieving prominence during the eligibility year. […]" (source: Wikipedia)
This category may not be confused with "Record of the Year"!
