August

One of my favourite songs by Metallica, tho it is considered one of their "softer" songs, it never disappoints me with great story telling by James Hetfield. This track is featured on their fifth album Metallica (the black album). Listen to immediately! Search for audio on Playlist.com
A sweet song that combines nice guitar work and beat with that "listen to me" trumpet, it calls attention to itself as a song and also as one of my faves. This song is one whose lyrics make you start to, if even for a moment, look to oneself. It's also one that all can associate with on some level, as all have at one time "been close to tragedy" and "had the odds stacked up so high you need a strength most don't possess." A memorable song that I first heard as a kid in the Digimon movie. I still remember its unique beat and lyrics to this day. Kingnee - Go Ear Audio on GoEar
This is the greatest song of all time. It deals with us making the earth suffer and having to save it. It is saying we are irresponsible, and aren't giving a darn about it. The song is about what's going on in the world. The song's about love, peace, and misunderstanding. Love: We need to love Planet Earth. It is our home, and is the only place to live. Peace: Respect the Earth. It deserves respect. You should be thanking the Earth. Misunderstanding: We don't know that we have made the Earth a worse place to live. We must make it better, so there is no ice caps melting, endangered animals becoming extinct, deforestation, or innocent people (specifically children) dying as a result of war. Michael Jackson especially did many things for children. "Earth Song" is the National Anthem of all "Earth Supporters". It is my favorite song from my favorite singer-songwriter. This song also has the best lyrics of any song in the world. It is also his highest charting single in the U.S and achieved #1 in many countries throughout the world, including in the UK where it was the 1995 Christmas #1. I pray and mourn for Michael Jackson, who sadly died on the 25th of June, 2009. He will always be a musical legend and a man of God. Rest In Peace, Michael Jackson. You will be remembered forever.

Preferred Date: August 29, 2009 - Michael Jackson's posthumous 51st birthday.

Dedicated to a friend who recently passed to the other side, the loss of a good friend and a man everyone should have known. RIP Minty. Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube
One of the many songs featuring Dave Grohl, this deserves to be nominated. It's supported by a continuous heavy riff featuring almost no pauses which makes it an extremely catchy and addicting tune. Likewise, the music video, which won the MTV Video Music Award in 2003 for Best Special Effects and was also nominated for Best Art Direction, is stylised and very memorable.

This song is just beautiful. I first learned of its existence through the recent Horton Hears a Who! movie, but no recording can compare to the original. It's no shock that it hit number one on the charts. "'Cause I can't fight this feeling anymore..." Kingnee - Go Ear Audio on GoEar
"Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven I'll come crawling on back to you." Is there really a song that encapsulates teenage rebellion, desperation, and burning love any more thoroughly than "Bat Out Of Hell"? Sometimes a song is worth a thousand sonnets. Meat Loaf and "Bat Out Of Hell" have a lot more to say about love than Shakespeare -- and the last line of the chorus says it all.Kingnee - Go Ear Audio on GoEar Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube
Gabriella Cilmi and Nevio make a perfect voice duet. The lyrics are beautiful and the song feels like summer. I love this song. Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube
One of the all-time best songs the world has ever known with numerous credits to its name, I was shocked to find this song wasn't already on the SOTD list! How could anyone not like this song? Perfect for happy times or when you've had a... you get the picture. Kingnee - Go Ear Audio on GoEar
With its piano-heavy intro, it's a classic Bob Seger song from Beautiful Loser. While it just barely missed the Top 40, I'm surprised it charted as high as it did. Kingnee - Go Ear Audio on GoEar
What can't be said about this song? Awesome? Insane? Stupidly awesome? Justin Hawkins' vocals are INCREDIBLE. He is hands down the best male singer I've heard in a long time. The Darkness are a one-hit wonder in the U.S., but they were massive in England until they broke up in 2006. Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube
After leaving The Runaways, Joan Jett found a quick #1 hit with this cover of the Arrows song. It's one of the true '80s classics. Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube
This song was nominated to pay tribute to band member LeRoi Moore who died in an ATV accident one year ago (August 19, 2008).
This song has so many messages intertwined in it. Its depth must truly be experienced as explaining it would merely fall short. All of these stories have one common thread, love is what matters. Kingnee - Go Ear Audio on GoEar
This song has it all, mind melting guitar, adrenaline raising verses, a melodic chorus, and creepy but catchy lyrics. It's an all around awesome song from a great band!
This simple, sweet melody by Mountain is a far cry from their hard rock style, but it's a beautiful ode to the man without whom Woodstock might never have happened. Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube
I'd like to nominate this song in honor of the 40th anniversary of the Woodstock Festival. Written by Joni Mitchell, CSNY covered it at the Festival itself, and it soon became a smash hit, as well as a staple of the band's catalogue. Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube
I first discovered this song after Mick Foley mentioned it in his autobiography Have a Nice Day!, and it's become one of my favorite Blackfoot songs. Its transition from somber Southern rock to hard rock and back is incredibly moving. Kingnee - Go Ear Audio on GoEar
Recently at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, this is a very fun song to listen to, and was performed on American Idol on April 9, 2009. Greatest song in a while, and 5 stars in my book. Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube
Outlaws is made up of some great music, and this is one of my favorite tracks. It's a bit more country music than rock, but that doesn't stop it from being a lot of fun to sing. Kingnee - Go Ear Audio on GoEar
Such a catchy song from the French singer Yelle. She's best known for "Je Veux Te Voir", but this song is well worth listening to as well. Still her style, but very different. Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube
Famous for its use in Chevrolet truck commercials in the 1990s, it's one of Bob Seger's most popular songs from 1986. At almost six minutes long, I'm surprised it broke into the Top 20. Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube
One of the songs of a band so unheard of, yet produced 5 albums in the space of 2 years. Their genre is described as jazz-rock. Isn't their best song, but in my opinion the best to start with listening to them.
Quickly overshadowing the original version by Traffic, it was Joe Cocker's fifth Top 40 hit. Artie Butler's piano playing supports the song perfectly. Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube
"100 Years" is probably Five for Fighting's most well-known song. Straight off the same album, The Battle For Everything, comes "If God Made You", which is as good as if not better than "100 Years". Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube
Donnie Van Zant isn't as famous as his brother Ronnie was, but that didn't stop 38 Special from scoring this Top 30 hit in 1981. This is one of the best Southern rock songs from the decade, without a doubt. Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube
Even though Panic At The Disco's second album, Pretty. Odd. did not receive as much radio time as their first, this song, from the second album, is absolutely stellar. It speaks of change, happiness, and love in a kind of way that is positive, and you don't find that very much among younger artists these days. Also, Panic at the Disco is just a great band in general because they love their fans. Kingnee - Go Ear Audio on GoEar
Originally released as the "B" side to "Detroit Rock City", it shocked the entire Kiss Army when "Beth" became the more popular single. While it's not a typical hard-rocking Kiss song, it remains only one of two gold-selling singles for the band, and was the first of two Top 10 hits. Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube
I sang this song with my classmates in chorus class when I was in elementary school. Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube
One of Tesla's most popular tracks from Five Man Acoustical Jam, it's remained a radio classic for almost twenty years. Their acoustic set can rock just as much as their electrical sets. Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube
This song is from Toto's last album Falling In Between. It is a beautiful emotional song dealing with poverty. Whereas the verses are sung by guitarist Steve Lukather, the chorus and the final part feature former lead singer Joseph Williams, whose outstanding performance and voice provide the special something to an already great song.
