Song: "...Baby One More Time" by Britney Spears
Nominated by: Hornean
Reason: This song has been nominated to celebrate its 20th anniversary as a single. It was also Britney's first ever #1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. This is also one of the songs that made Radio Disney be at the height of its popularity.

Preferred Date: October 23, 2018 (20th anniversary of the single; also the 25th anniversary of Joe Carter's home run to win the World Series)


Song: "We All Evolve" by JT Machinima
Nominated by: XAedriane
Reason: I nominated this song, because it's a Pokemon Go-themed song that has plenty of references to other parts of the franchise, most notably a cleverly-worded verse detailing Pokemon types and their weaknesses. With so much going on with Pokemon Go now and over the next few months, I feel this would be a particularly relevant SOTD.

Song: "The Last Goodbye" by Billy Boyd
Nominated by: 69.55.123.115
Reason: I nominated this song because it is beautifully sung, and it is my favorite song partly because it wraps up all the Middle-earth Wikipedia16 saga.

Song: "Strange Charm" by Hank Green
Nominated by: 2601:18F:900:36B0:BA27:EBFF:FE61:1762

Nominated by: 157.185.73.23
Reason: It is a very true and emotional song that deserves to be heard by all of those who are heart broken.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "The Cover of Rolling Stone" by Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show
Nominated by: Cubs Fan
Reason: An amusing satire of success in the music industry, I like that it doesn't need a hard-driving or heavy metal riff to be enjoyable. And ironically, as the song rose in the pop chart, eventually reaching #6, the group kind of got their wish: a caricature, rather than an actual photograph, of the band appeared on the cover of the March 29, 1973 issue. For a band like Dr. Hook, if that's not success, I don't know what is.

Song: "Temen Oblak" by Christopher Tin
Nominated by: 217.7.230.162

Song: "Letting Go" by Krys Talk
Nominated by: JustLeafy
Reason: I nominated this song because it is so special to me. It is a beautiful song that made me reduce my stress. It is one of the best underrated songs to exist.

Song: "Maria Lando" by Susana Baca
Nominated by: 66.75.44.75
Reason: I nominate this song of the day because I loved the music, yet the minute I saw the woman that cleaned up after the young adults to whom display an ordinary day of disrespect, no understanding of hard work & getting high as they pay this sweet hard working Mexicana do her job. Probably to send the money back home so her children can go to school or help her family. It kind of broke my heart. The song hurt my heart deeply, their acts disgusted me.

Song: "Jungle" by X Ambassadors
Nominated by: Cubs Fan
Reason: Another one of those "I know that, but I don't know why" songs, I've heard it several times in various television ads. Despite not knowing the title for the longest time, it's undoubtedly one of the catchiest tunes I know.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Proud Mary" by Ike & Tina Turner
Nominated by: 24.185.219.222
Reason: I nominated this song because it is a classic rock tune that has a great groove and feeling to it.

Song: "The Dash" by Scotty McCreery
Nominated by: 2601:648:8100:CC20:C17E:6998:C9B4:9C6B
Reason: My teacher of 3 years recently experienced the tragic death of his sweet 19 month old daughter Lily on September 11. The Dash reminds me of how such a little girl has inspired so much love with such a short life. The pain can never be taken away, but at least this song can give some solace as to her legacy.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube
Preferred Date: November 11, 2018 (2 month anniversary of Lily's passing)


Song: "Son Of A Gun" by Bruce Dickinson
Nominated by: 75.81.135.20

Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Jesus Was A Man" by INXS
Nominated by: 62.38.100.119
Reason: I nominated this song 'cause it's one of my favorites by one of the biggest rock bands of the 80s and it keeps alive the legend of Michael Hutchence Wikipedia16.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Witch Image" by Ghost
Nominated by: Ursuul
Reason: “Don’t make a deal with the devil”

Ghost has recently debuted their new album Prequelle. It’s a much more thoughtful, emotional album than is their usual, harder tenor. Many secondary songs in the backwater of great albums never get much attention, but Witch Image more completely captures the Satanic core of Ghost, while quintessentially displaying the somber tone of Prequelle, encapsulating the band’s past & present.

Song: "O Come To The Altar" by Elevation Worship
Nominated by: 24.187.79.169
Reason: It's a wonderful tune and very inspirational. Uplifting and healing. I first heard it on dvid music on YouTube performed by "Hope of Eden" and David.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Adhd" by Truslow
Nominated by: Jstruslow
Reason: It's the voice of our generation. It's truly a beautiful statement of freedom for different mental and social disorders. Recognizing the strengths of each person regardless of social constructs.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "The Ballad of John and Yoko" by The Beatles
Nominated by: Cubs Fan
Reason: Unique in that it was recorded without George Harrison and Ringo Starr, it's remained a popular staple of the Beatles' catalog. When it was released, recalling the controversy of John Lennon's "more popular than Jesus" comment in 1966, several radio stations refused to play it because of the perceived sacrilegious uses of "Christ" and "crucify" in the chorus. But nonetheless, it's still three minutes of fun music.

Song: "Got The Hots" by Michael Jackson
Nominated by: 2601:902:8000:99AB:B4CE:AC5A:59DD:14B1
Reason: I nominated this song because it is so groovy. His vocals are on point and he really puts some feeling into it and it should have made the Thriller album 100%.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Batabid" by Björk
Nominated by: 80.43.233.106
Reason: Just discovered this wonderful little 2 and a half minute song today, it's very magical and I hope you see the simple beauty of it too.

Nominated by: 2601:243:C200:31C0:C81C:B378:4F47:59B0

Reason: Joyful, great to dance to, captures the fun and excitement of being with friends in New York City.

Song: "The Loneliness Of The Long Distance Runner" by This Routine Is Hell
Nominated by: 2A00:23C0:1179:2800:A50C:A70B:25BB:12DB
Reason: This song is lyrically poetic, yet sung violently and sad. Overcome the less noise of the backing track he escapes the confines of it. Leaping forth in one last bout of anguish before seeping silent dwelling on his pain until it grows to much to bear and his voice lurches forward once more without grace or beauty but with true primal rage for what he once had is lost to time.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Idaho" by Caitlin Canty
Nominated by: 203.114.233.123
Reason: I have so many memories attached to this song. The song is beautifully sung and brilliantly composed, reflecting the heartache and bond of a couple fighting troubled times in their relationship.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Trouser Freak" by The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band
Nominated by: MichaelAlexanderGould
Reason: A wacky song about a "trouser freak". One of Roger Ruskin Spear's greatest songs because of the piano and vocals. Hey hey hey!
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "I Surrender" by Rainbow
Nominated by: Cubs Fan
Reason: Another Russ Ballard cover, it was Rainbow's highest-charting UK single. With Ritchie Blackmore shifting away from the sword and sorcery themes of band's early albums, and striving for a more commercially successful sound, this certainly does the trick. It's a good hard rock song without the heavy guitar riffs.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Tomorrow Is Another Day" by Disney
Nominated by: 65.129.138.57
Reason: I nominate this song because sometimes we simply need to be reminded of the hope of another day.

Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Her Darkest Hour" by Rare Bird
Nominated by: 47.134.30.140
Reason: I have been listening to this song, and the masterpiece of an album that it comes from, for 46 years now... And I'm certain that I will until I pass from this world. This song, and its album (Epic Forest) remain as one of rock's greatest undiscovered gems.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Billie Jean" by Michael Jackson
Nominated by: Hornean
Reason: This smash hit was nominated to celebrate the 36th anniversary of MJ's breakthrough album, Thriller. This song is notable for MJ doing the moonwalk dance.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube
Preferred Date: November 30, 2018 (36th anniversary of the release of Thriller)


Song: "Twilight" by Electric Light Orchestra
Nominated by: TheSponge231
Reason: I think this is a very overlooked song by ELO. "Hold On Tight" gets a lot of attention but I feel this should have been its lead single.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube
Preferred Date: December 1, 2018


Song: "Le Ciel" by Malice Mizer
Nominated by: 142.112.114.47
Reason: I'm still feeling devastated over reading about a 5 year old girl who died after 2 years of child abuse and neglect in Japan. I've been searching for songs to send out for her and this is one that feels appropriate.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Bad Blood" by Neil Sedaka
Nominated by: 173.14.55.1
Reason: Mark played it at work today - it's a great song. I haven't heard it in a long time. It took me back to high school. Go Neil Sadaka!

Reason: I nominate this song because it represents my roots, my love, my life in Cuba...
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "How Many More Times" by Led Zeppelin
Nominated by: Cubs Fan
Reason: Developed by Jimmy Page when he was still with the Yardbirds, it's the perfect song to end Zeppelin's debut album. It's a bit long, but the music is so good, you barely notice; I guess the old adage is right: time flies when you're having fun.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Finlandia" by Jean Sibelius
Nominated by: 81.197.103.36
Reason: It is Finland's 101st birthday!!! Also it is one of the best songs in the world :)
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube

Song: "Let's Remember Pearl Harbor" by Sammy Kaye

Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube
Preferred Date: December 7, 2018 (Anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor)


Song: "The Rain Song" by Led Zeppelin
Nominated by: 14.139.123.36

Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Cornerman" by Sky Cries Mary
Nominated by: 98.210.216.123
Reason: Homelessness is rampant now in West Coast cities. Sort of an acknowledgement of the mystic space engendered by simple living
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "At My Window" by Geoffrey Oryema
Nominated by: 49.178.9.44
Reason: I wrote this song with Geoffrey in 2005. I love it and I loved him. It was me missing him at my window in Brussels. I recall sitting in a hotel lobby and he pulled out his guitar as I sang the melody to him. Voila, we went straight to studio and gave it birth.

He released it as the first single of the N2N album and offered it to his listening audience in the context of him missing Africa which I loved. When he came to Australia a few years later, he sang it to me at Womad 98. It was a beautiful memory now 20 years on.

Sadly Geoffrey has recently passed on 22 June 2018... he will be greatly missed but his fabulous music will always live on. As Peter Gabriel said, he was a big man with a big heart who leaves a big hole. RIP Geoffrey, the world has lost a truly magnificent soul.

Song: "Aura" by Lady Gaga
Nominated by: 130.105.220.244
Reason: I nominate this song because this song, along with the entire album, had such great potential but failed due to faulty management and marketing that stifled the creativity of the artist instead of supported it.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube

Nominated by: 2606:A000:8A4A:F600:4574:3774:9065:203A

Song: "Stay With Me" by Goran Karan
Nominated by: 76.72.130.112
Reason: The words are so touching that I find myself listening to them several times a day. It causes a good feeling inside me. As a single person and lost love the words makes me realise what is now gone.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Makeba" by Jain
Nominated by: CosmicExplorer1234
Reason: Jain's lyrics are highly innovative and very different from other popular artists right now. The song is also a tribute to Miriam Makeba, a famous South African singer and activist.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Revolution" by The Beatles
Nominated by: Cubs Fan
Reason: Opening with its distinctive distorted guitar riff and inspired by political protests in early 1968, it was a smash hit when released as the B-side to "Hey Jude". Three different versions exist - the more bluesy "Revolution 1" and the sound collage "Revolution 9", but it's this hard rock version that everybody remembers.

Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Papa Gene's Blues" by The Monkees
Nominated by: 209.217.192.194
Reason: I nominated this song because it's light and carefree. It certainly isn't the blues in the standard sense. It's just a fun little tune.

Song: "I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)" by Aretha Franklin & George Michael
Nominated by: Hornean
Reason: I just learned that Aretha Franklin, the Queen of Soul, had passed away at age 76 of what is reported to be pancreatic cancer (August 16, 2018). So I decided to nominate this song as a tribute to respect her honor.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "I Wanna Be Like You" by Louis Prima
Nominated by: Cubs Fan
Reason: A highlight of The Jungle Book, it's probably one of the songs for which Louis Prima is best known outside of his swing and jazz band. As entertaining as it is catchy, his scatting duet with Phil Harris is probably the part people remember the most.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Cruel And Clumsy" by Chris Pureka
Nominated by: ParadoxKismet
Reason: I nominate this song because it has such depth of feeling and truth. Life is indeed cruel and clumsy. We all have days when we feel that so sharply - when we are on the brink.

Song: "Same Old Story" by The Oppressed
Nominated by: 185.44.76.118

Song: "Danger Zone" by Ray Charles
Nominated by: 98.167.14.147
Reason: It clearly sends a message of today's state of being, and visualizes the the course that this United States, and the world is headed in, (which is catastrophic at the least), unless change is in the very near future.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Sault Ste. Marie" by Three Dog Night
Nominated by: 73.249.226.68
Reason: Strong melody and quite interesting lyrical content. It's a bit of a departure from the 70s pop the band is known for - yet, it's a cover song that they are known for.

Nominated by: 18.210.33.109
Reason: It's an awesome song and the intro sounds so cool! The solo is sick and the whole song is catchy and headbang worthy. It's a song that everyone can enjoy, plus the lyrics can be understood! It's not all screaming (most of it is)! Also this song is meaningful, there's a lot of emotion in the singer's voice and it's beautiful! I recommend this as the SotD because it's a song you can listen to again and again and pick up something new every time!

Song: "Isn't She Lovely?" by Stevie Wonder
Nominated by: Hornean
Reason: Stevie wrote this song to celebrate the birth of his daughter, Aisha Morris. The song wasn't released as a single which would explain why it didn't enter the Billboard Hot 100. It is one the best non-single songs ever.

Song: "Viking Gods" by Tobias Gustafsson
Nominated by: 46.195.154.189
Reason: It really fits with the game it was made for. The vocals and the beat truly fits well with the theme of playing as a Norse ruler raiding the rich settlements of Christianity.

Song: "Der Sommerwind" by Esther Ofarim
Nominated by: 2601:345:C100:FBA:282D:3A50:D0A4:2D22
Reason: I found out today that it was originally a German song. The lyrics are about as good in German as in English, which is damn good, considering that Johnny Mercer wrote the English version.

Nominated by: 2600:1700:EFB0:EF40:D191:EF8B:B9A8:CCA5

You've got to listen to all their music... it gets better with different members, changes, but it always has its basics... great

Song: "Dust To Dust" by The Warning
Nominated by: Caesarmx96
Reason: Magnificent music written, composed and played by three of the most talented teenagers ever! I have been listening to this song non-stop for a week and still can't get enough. This song has elements of the band Tool but to me more passion and depth.

Song: "Born To Run" by Frankie Goes To Hollywood
Nominated by: Hornean
Reason: Even though the band never released this song as a single, this cover version of Bruce Springsteen's song sounded more 80s. They sometimes performed it in concerts including two television programs, "The Tube" and "Saturday Night Live". Their live performance in "The Tube" was overdubbed by the studio version in their compilation album, "Frankie Said".

Song: "Macarena (Bayside Boys Mix)" by Los Del Río
Nominated by: Hornean
Reason: I learned to dance along with this song in my music class in elementary school. Alternately, I put both arms out, flip them over, touch my shoulders, touch my head, cross my arms while touching my hips, then I uncross my arms and touch my hips again and when "Hey, Macarena" came, I wiggled my hips before I jump while rotating my body. This song was a smash hit in 1996, being at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 14 consecutive weeks. Plus it took them a record 33 weeks on the Billboard chart before finally reaching #1.

Song: "Word Crimes" by "Weird Al" Yankovic
Nominated by: Cubs Fan
Reason: A humorous take on Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines", it's essentially a four-minute lesson in grammar and its correct usage. As something of a grammar stickler myself, it astounds me how such simple things can trip up so many people.
