March 31, 2011: Go, Cubs, Go by Steve Goodman

Heading into their 103rd year without a World Series championship, I'm really rooting for the Cubs this year. Let's start this season off with a win!

March 30, 2011: Let Me Hear You Scream by Ozzy Osbourne

Featured in an episode of CSI: NY to promote the release of Scream, it's a loud, pounding heavy metal song. But I would expect nothing less from the Prince of Darkness.

March 29, 2011: Summertime Blues by The Who

Probably the most recognizable cover of the Eddie Cochran song, it was a hit for the Who on both sides of the Atlantic. The Who have recorded some great songs, and this is definitely one of them.

March 27, 2011: Loser Like Me by Glee Cast

This is the Glee Cast's first original song! It's also their first song to be on the radio!

March 26, 2011: Lay Down Sally by Eric Clapton

Mixing Clapton's standard blues-rock sound with country influences, it was the first successful single from Slowhand, breaking into the Top 5. It's not the greatest Clapton song I've heard, but it's certainly remained one of his most popular.

March 25, 2011: Shoot to Thrill by AC/DC

The second track of Back in Black is a great hard rock song. It's not as riff-heavy as "Back in Black", or as macabre as "Hells Bells", but it's one hundred percent pure AC/DC.

March 24, 2011: F**k You by Cee Lo Green

I love this song and I can't even explain why that it. Whenever the (censored) version is played on the radio while I'm driving, I get in this really good mood and sing along really loudly to cover up for the silly censorship. And hey, it has a message: gold diggers are bad.

March 23, 2011: Hero's Song by Brendan James

I feel like this song portrays the futility of war so well and is very current. Only soldiers really understand what they've experienced in a war and they are so hard to deal with. This is a beautiful song that is always current.

March 22, 2011: 10,000 Miles by Mary Chapin Carpenter

This song was nominated to pay tribute to the movie "Fly Away Home" which the song was played in. It shows how much I love my parents.

March 21, 2011: Bloody Motherf**king A*shole by Martha Wainwright

Most people are more familiar with this artist's more famous brother Rufus Wainwright but I think his sister is almost as good as him and has a very distinctive voice and lyrics. Why should she have to be overshadowed by Rufus all the time?

March 18, 2011: Stay the Night by James Blunt

Whenever I hear this song, I get in a good mood. It's fresh and sweet and it makes me feel like I've just fallen in love all over again. It's such a nice song about a friendship turning into a relationship.

March 17, 2011: Top o' the Morning to Ya by House Of Pain

I think I first discovered this Celtic rock song through Daredevil. It's got a very Irish riff, and I nominate it to celebrate St. Patrick's Day today.

Preferred Date: March 17, 2011 (St. Patrick's Day)

March 16, 2011: Bye Bye Baby by Bay City Rollers

This song is so incredibly catchy and whenever I hear it, it remains stuck in my head for ages. Also, I can think of so many stories that would fit those lyrics.

March 15, 2011: The Ice Is Getting Thinner by Death Cab For Cutie

This song is about how people change and how those changes can cause the end of a relationship and how that can't be avoided, no matter how hard you try. Sometimes, people just grow apart. I think it's a very real song that the ones of us in relationships don't like to think about and hope will only ever happen to other people.

March 14, 2011: Piano Man by Billy Joel

This song has been one that my dad would listen to every once in a while when I was growing up and I always liked the melody. I didn't pay attention to the lyrics until much later but they only make the song even more beautiful.

March 13, 2011: The Entertainer by Marvin Hamlisch

Hamlisch's Oscar winning adaptation of the Scott Joplin rag helped revive the popularity of ragtime music. I like the original, but Hamlisch did a good job, and deserved his Oscar.

March 12, 2011: The Pink Panther Theme by Henry Mancini

One of the most famous cinematic motifs of all time, it scored Henry Mancini an Oscar nomination for Best Original Score, and won three Grammy Awards. I've never followed big band swing very much, but this is a great tune from the genre.

March 11, 2011: A Slow Song by Joe Jackson

A mellow lyrical opening gives way to searing passion in the closing song from Joe Jackson's acclaimed 1982 album Night and Day (1982). It obliquely references the gay sub-culture of early 80s New York City, Jackson's adopted hometown. The style of lyrics and music on the album invited comparisons to Cole Porter from numerous critics.

March 05, 2011: Brimful of Asha by Fatboy Slim

Compared to the original song by Cornershop, Norman Cook's remix is high pitched, faster, and funkier. I like this song a lot, and it has been very popular in UK and US, so many of you might already know it. A great opportunity to listen to the song again.

March 04, 2011: What the Hell by Avril Lavigne

Currently peaked at #11 on the Billboard Hot 100, "What the H**l" is Avril Lavigne's newest song since "Girlfriend" in 2007.

March 03, 2011: Fool for the City by Foghat

With a much less pronounced hard rock sound than the rest of Fool for the City, the album's title track features some great slide guitar from Rod Price and the supporting rhythm guitar from Dave Peverett. It's no wonder it's one of Foghat's classics.

March 02, 2011: Black Betty by Spiderbait

Although I like Ram Jam's version better, Spiderbait's take on the Lead Belly standard has its own unique charm. But it was popular enough in their own home country, eventually reaching #1 in Australia.

March 01, 2011: Can You Feel The Love Tonight? by Elton John

For many years, I never liked Elton John. Even this song didn't faze me. But recently, when I get to know this song, it doesn't contain horns. The studio version doesn't have percussion instruments and drums. But "One Night Only" live version did. This is the love song of the Disney movie, The Lion King. There's also a version seen in Disney Sing-Along Songs: Colors Of The Wind containing two singers, one male and one female. That version shows a montage of Disney couples.
