A pair of idiosyncratic talents have captured the bulk of Grammy Award nominations, with the feel-good sound of Bobby McFerrin's "Don't Worry, Be Happy" contrasting with the bleak poetry of Tracy Chapman's "Fast Car."

Chapman's somber, haunting folk songs won her six nominations, including best song, record, album and best new artist.McFerrin's ebullient vocals earned five nominations, including record, album and song.

The two symbolize the diversity of nominees for National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences trophies, and represent a break from the mainstream. The Grammy nominations - with an all-time high 76 categories - were culled from a record 6,800 entries released from Oct. 1, 1987, to Sept. 30, 1988.

Winners will be announced here Feb. 22 during a televised ceremony on CBS-TV with host Billy Crystal.

Chapman's self-titled first album was a surprise hit in 1988, and its single "Fast Car," about a woman seeking to escape a cycle of poverty, was a No. 1 hit. The 24-year-old singer's song and record nominations, plus one for best female pop vocal performance, were for "Fast Car."

Her album also received a nomination for best contemporary folk recording. The Boston-based singer came to record producers' attention during nightclub performances while a student at Tufts University.

McFerrin, 38, whose "Don't Worry, Be Happy" was the first a cappella song to reach the No. 1 position on Billboard charts, received nominations for best song, record and male pop vocal performance for "Don't Worry." He also received an album nomination for "Simple Pleasures."

In addition, McFerrin, who records his works using only his voice, was nominated for best male jazz vocal performance for the song "Brothers."

Heavy metal and rap music made a Grammy debut, while past pop giants gathered nominations in relatively obscure categories - Bob Dylan and Van Morrison in traditional folk, Joe Jackson for motion picture score and Linda Ronstadt for Mexican recording.

Michael Jackson, shut out at last year's awards, received a single nomination for his "Man in the Mirror" single as record of the year.

Nominees for best new artist included the dethroned Miss America, Vanessa Williams, Rick Astley, Chapman, Toni Childs and the group Take 6.
