Song: "Jordan" by Buckethead
Nominated by: Cubs Fan
Reason: Expanded from the shorter version usually played in concert, for inclusion in Guitar Hero II, it's one of the most innovative progressive metal songs I've heard. Buckethead's technique is, plain and simple, mind-blowing; I've always thought the riffs of "Layla" and "Eruption" were fast, but Buckethead could run circles around Clapton and Eddie Van Halen.

Song: "Saturday Night" by Bay City Rollers
Nominated by: Hornean
Reason: I first heard this song on the Planter's commercial in 2004-05 and I was wondering who sang this. It was thanks to Sirius Satellite Radio I finally discovered it was the Bay City Rollers. Plus, it was the band's only #1 hit in America.

Song: "Once Upon A Star" by Bay City Rollers
Nominated by: 31.49.171.11

Reason: A reflection on life and mortality, it's just plain hard not to like. It's a bit on the short side, but the pounding riff draws you in and keeps your interest the whole way through.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Have You Seen Her" by MC Hammer
Nominated by: Hornean
Reason: Even though "U Can't Touch This" was MC's signature song, this cover version from The Chi-Lites peaked higher than the former; and it didn't contain any samples and the tempo is slower than almost any other hip hop song.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Die Reisiger" by Coenie De Villiers
Nominated by: 41.164.147.11
Reason: It can accompany us day by day and bring us close to the earth again, our earth. The part which is familiar and known to us and which makes us feel safe and sheltered.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Täss'on Nainen" by Hedningarna
Nominated by: 79.98.157.5

Song: "Ice Ice Baby" by Vanilla Ice
Nominated by: Hornean
Reason: This was the first hip-hop song ever to peak at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and that's when hip-hop began to gain popularity. My brother met Vanilla a long time ago.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube

Nominated by: Cubs Fan
Reason: Before "Blinded by the Light", Manfred Mann had another #1 hit with this 1964 ditty. With the distinctive riff and memorable lyrics, it's just fun to sing along with.

Preferred Date: August 10, 2018 (58th birthday of my love.)
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Listening" by Morten Harket
Nominated by: 91.49
Reason: This song is a collaboration of the singer of a-ha, Morten Harket, and the Pet Shop Boys. It was written by the Pet Shop Boys and released by them as a mere b-side. But they recorded it with Harket for his 2012 solo album Out of My Hands. A typical PSB song with the voice of a-ha.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "All For Love" by Bryan Adams
Nominated by: Hornean
Reason: It was amazing for three singers to come together and have their song from the Disney movie, The Three Musketeers Wikipedia16, peak at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. It was also the first song ever from a Disney live-action film to accomplish that feat. Therefore it is the 2nd overall song from any Disney film to do so after Peabo Bryson and Regina Belle's "A Whole New World" from Aladdin.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Hercules" by Sara Bareilles
Nominated by: 209.6.129.180

Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Cosy Prisons" by A-ha
Nominated by: 91.49
Reason: This song from the 2005 album Analogue is more rock oriented than most of a-ha's songs. It has a delicate melody and the lyrics are very touching, dealing with anxiety.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Believe" by Cher
Nominated by: Hornean
Reason: This is how the Auto-Tune Wikipedia16 began to gain popularity. Plus, it made Cher the oldest female singer to have her song top the Billboard charts as she was 52 years old when it peaked at #1.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "She's Gone" by Black Sabbath
Nominated by: Proglydite
Reason: Because after 40 years, this song STILL gets a tear out of me! It worked in 1976 when I broke up with my girl, and it still had the same effect in 2014 when my wife of 30 years passed.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Breakin' Down Again" by David Cassidy
Nominated by: 187.127.153.58
Reason: It's so beautiful, David's voice and singing are wonderful and I unfortunately missed it when it was released back in '76.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "The Canyon Behind Her" by Dredg
Nominated by: 2001:48F8:3028:1B63:271E:A91E:166D:1B5D
Reason: More than music and lyrics, it moves the soul. Dredg never broke out as a huge band but songs like this show they could have.

Reason: This theme song from Hell's Kitchen was nominated to celebrate the grand opening of the Hell's Kitchen restaurant at Caesars Palace Wikipedia16.

Song: "Scar On The Sky" by Chris Cornell
Nominated by: 73.41.242.95
Reason: There's a deep meaningful message to these lyrics to call the listener to action.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Intergalactic" by Beastie Boys
Nominated by: Hornean
Reason: For years I was confused about why "Intergalactic planetary, planetary intergalactic" and "another dimension" were in the lyrics. But I recently discovered that they were sung in robotic tune, and I thought those robotic strikes were only instrumental. This was also used for the montage of slam dunks in the NBA from "NBA Live 2001: The Music Videos".
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Jenny Come In" by Joan Shelley
Nominated by: 24.241.179.29

Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube

Reason: This beautifully sung song tells a true historical story while still sounding good and entertaining many.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Thug Passion" by 2Pac
Nominated by: 104.37.210.20
Reason: I nominate this song because I love 2Pac. Just the fact that he has a fire flow and you can feel it as if it's contagious. He's always been a real human being. He has a heart, he cares for others and his community as well. There's more reasons why but it's a million and one.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Beat It" by Michael Jackson
Nominated by: Hornean
Reason: What I find interesting about this song is when in the music video, two rival gangs face each other at the warehouse in a fight to the death between gang leaders before Jackson intervened and stopped the fighting and telling them that violence is not the solution to their problems and they joined him in a dance routine. As the lyrics say, "It doesn't matter who's wrong or right".
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube
Preferred Date: August 29, 2018 (Michael Jackson's posthumous 60th birthday)


Song: "Ti Voglio Tanto Bene" by Claudio Villa

Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "I Don't Want To Hurt You" by Aviators
Nominated by: Grayhoof85
Reason: This song is a powerful, moving, and emotional tale of a man who struggles to keep his daughter safe, but finds that he himself is her worst enemy. It’s also a musical masterpiece, with a somber piano track that slowly transitions to a fast-paced rock ballad, highlighting the singer’s torment.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Stop Sign" by Michael Fassbender & Stephen Rennicks
Nominated by: 84.113.102.11
Reason: A friendly reminder that we all have stop signs in our life and that we ought to overcome them and not break our neck ;)
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Ex's & Oh's" by Elle King
Nominated by: Cubs Fan
Reason: Though I'm not a big fan of contemporary pop music, I was pleasantly surprised at how hard Elle King can rock. And considering her father is Saturday Night Live alum Rob Schneider, a comedian whom I don't find funny at all, the irony that I've taken to the song as much as I have amuses me.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Tomorrow" by David Cassidy
Nominated by: 2602:306:C5E5:A450:C1EA:3922:CDDF:2664

Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "America, America" by Bloodrock
Nominated by: 108.56.254.3
Reason: I nominated this song because I believe it's still politically and socially relevant today, if not more so.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Pieces Of Me" by Ashlee Simpson
Nominated by: 27.33.14.50
Reason: I nominated this song cause it's one of my favourite childhood songs. Me, a 5 year old girl, belting out this and I loved it so much and also it reflects (now) what it's like to fall in love, a celebration for engagement, upcoming wedding.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Where Do The Children Go" by The Hooters
Nominated by: 181.231.167.185
Reason: I nominate this song because it's simple yet full of emotion. The melodies and harmonies are perfects.

Nominated by: 2A02:C7F:5043:6500:19AB:CB92:8D5C:FF8C
Reason: I nominated this song because the soundtrack is one of the best soundtracks there are for the gaming industry, adding instruments at each cycle of the lyrics.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Bitiw" by Sponge Cola
Nominated by: Kyleroo
Reason: This nomination is dedicated to Filipino fans of "Sponge Cola" and "Da Adventures of Pedro Penduko", and it's very underrated so I want people to notice it.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Last Night I Had The Strangest Dream" by Pete Seeger
Nominated by: 108.26.36.216
Reason: Because the world may be on the brink of nuclear war and the president takes this all too lightly, being uninterested in diplomacy. Also, there is a new book on the Kellogg–Briand Pact Wikipedia16 that I believe was the inspiration for the song... a pact to outlaw war.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Hexagram" by Deftones
Nominated by: 2601:6C0:C000:5303:508A:44FF:4B0B:5DE6
Reason: I nominate this song because the underlying meaning is about suicide bombers. It has their perspective, God's perspective, and the parents' perspective. It is a gentle yet abrasive song. Remember and never forget.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube
Preferred Date: September 11, 2018 (17th Anniversary of 09/11)


Song: "Abacab" by Genesis
Nominated by: Abbacadabra
Reason: The reason I nominated this song is that it is always fun to "rock out" to. With an extended outro on the album version featuring a long synth solo, courtesy of Tony Banks on his ARP Quadra, it always has me trying to play along even when far from a keyboard.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Running Scared" by Roy Orbison
Nominated by: Hornean
Reason: I heard this song on an episode of "Harper's Island Wikipedia16" in a scene when Malcolm went to the incinerator to burn the money just before he was killed off-screen by an unknown killer who would later be revealed to be his friend Henry Dunn. Plus, it peaked at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1961.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Hunting High And Low" by A-ha
Nominated by: 91.49
Reason: This is one of the most beautiful pop ballads ever. The melody - carried by Morten Harket's gorgeous voice - meanders delightfully across verses and chorus and at the end the song gets rather dramatic, supported by great string arrangements.

The video is another masterpiece by Steve Barron. It has singer Morten morph into different animals. Very suitable for the lyrics that are about searching for your loved one everywhere - high and low.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "A Broken World" by The Dreadnoughts
Nominated by: CraftOfMojang
Reason: The song is a cover of the poem "September, 1918", which is about a woman's observations of a beautiful day, but remarks that she has no time to enjoy the day due to the broken state of the world. Day doesn't matter as long as it is in September.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube
Preferred Date: September 15, 2018 (100th anniversary of September in 1918)


Song: "Benson, Arizona" by John Carpenter
Nominated by: 24.113.176.230
Reason: I nominate this song because it is such a catchy tune. You'll be tapping your toe to the beat in no time and it will stick in your head days later.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "One Week" by Barenaked Ladies
Nominated by: Hornean
Reason: It's rather strange for this song to be at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for just one week. Plus it appeared on the film, "Digimon: The Movie".
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "8 Mile" by Eminem
Nominated by: Spirtbrat
Reason: Many Oscars were won because the movie character always found a way to say the right things at the right time. Timeless lines. These lyrics capture a mood and a state of mind and convey it better than the movie was able to. 15 years ago Eminem was a true artist that will resonate with us for ages.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Evolve" by Phoria
Nominated by: 142.139.139.54
Reason: It's beautiful from start to finish. I can't get enough of this song's epic feel, and the way the lyrics and music just pour out into my ears is pure bliss.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "But God" by Larnelle Harris
Nominated by: 2605:6000:54C0:8000:8DD8:ABD:DBCC:453B
Reason: I saw a live video of this song performed by Larnelle Harris. His sheer love for God embodied all areas of him and his performance. The pathos of emotions, the lyrics, the musical orchestration, all testified to a deep experience with God and anointing of the Holy Spirit. Moreover for me, those two words: "But God" have been the turning point in every impossible equation that "makes no sense" to turn things around into an absolute favorable miracle; "saving the day" always!
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Drive" by Assemblage 23
Nominated by: 2A02:560:42E3:1200:916D:BDB1:B06C:122C
Reason: I nominated this song because this is one of the tracks which is perfectly describing what I need to do from time to time. Besides, it is also one of many beautiful A23 songs.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "My Humps" by The Black Eyed Peas
Nominated by: Cubs Fan
Reason: Consistently rated one of, if not the, worst songs ever written, it's still got an amusing charm to it, like trying to rhyme "drunk" and "hump". And in the current " #MeToo Wikipedia16" era, you have to enjoy the novelty that songs like this, about women using their feminine assets to get what they want, were once considered socially acceptable.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Every Little Step" by Christana Taddonio
Nominated by: 2600:1:937E:88DF:682B:8B66:249F:C86E
Reason: I nominated this song because it's very beautiful and meaningful. It's simple and different compared to the other songs that are popular today. That's what I love about it!
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "A Crime To Remember" by Pop Evil
Nominated by: 207.160.144.253
Reason: This song, in my opinion, has a true meaning that is strong and powerful in a good way.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube
Preferred Date: September 24, 2018


Song: "Лондон-Москва" by Света
Nominated by: 205.154.244.29
Reason: It's sad and nice like no other songs. Her voice is natural and beautiful without yelling or shouting, and it sounds like an almost surprise to hear such a melody without crazy bits. The words are touchy and very soul... I think everyone has had these sad moments of separation... forever... It's like an unfinished story from the heart. I don't know if no one has sung even close to that in English or other languages. She is the best for today! Gold medal!
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Open Your Eyes" by Lesiëm
Nominated by: Unidality
Reason: Tiene una letra muy profunda éxtasis puro no se puede expresar si no lo vives muy dentro como la existencia misma.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "You're Standing On My Neck" by Splendora
Nominated by: 74.109.41.69
Reason: I nominate this song because of its uniqueness. It embodies the teen angst of not fitting it to the shrillest moment.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "الأطلال" by أم كلثوم
Nominated by: 107.146.225.144
Reason: I nominate this song because I love the words, the lyrics, and above all the singer.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Not The Future" by Bad Lip Reading
Nominated by: 2602:301:77A9:56A0:505A:998D:A276:7C5F
Reason: BLR has turned the beloved Star Wars clips into an original and creative music piece that makes a very important point that people often forget - it's Not The Future. It is comedic and catchy to the ears of those who listen.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Nothing Else Matters" by Metallica
Nominated by: 208.91.96.12
Reason: I nominated this song because it reminds me of my best friend, who died on September 30, 2016
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube
Preferred Date: September 30, 2018


Song: "Don't Fall" by The Chameleons
Nominated by: 2605:E000:FB0A:5400:79CB:7E4D:5FD6:572F
Reason: It rocks, and it kicks off one of my favorite albums, The Script of the Bridge, by the criminally underrated band The Chameleons. ‘80s post punk at its finest, unfettered by commercial considerations, and did I mention it’s about a bad LSD trip? I‘ve had a couple of those and this song manages to convey the oddity and terror... but the driving drums and guitars keep you from getting down. Just one of many brilliant tracks the band recorded. They should have been huge!

Song: "Look What You've Done" by The Megas
Nominated by: 2601:18F:601:778C:E411:53F7:2891:2DB8
Reason: "Look What You've Done" provides great insight to Albert Wily's character in the world portrayed by The Megas- while the original video games only featured him as a spiteful megalomaniac with eyes on world domination, The Megas take inspiration from Hitoshi Ariga's Gigamix, and depict him as someone who wishes for equality for the Robot Masters, who he views as his children. "Look What You've Done" showcases the destruction of Wily's relationship with Light, the realization that the Robot Masters were people who deserved better than being enslaved by humanity, his resolution to continue, and his perception of Megaman being somewhat of a child soldier.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube
Preferred Date: October 2, 2018 (The release of Megaman 11)


Song: "Sabrina" by Einstürzende Neubauten
Nominated by: 2001:569:70D5:1600:602B:522F:880E:EDBC
Reason: This is one of the most understated songs ever. I feel that it conveys a mood of a deeply conflicted and self-reflective modern Germany as well as being a great work of songwriting on its own.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube
Preferred Date: October 3, 2018 (German Unity Day 2018)


Song: "Moving On Up" by M People
Nominated by: Hornean
Reason: This song has been nominated for the 25th anniversary of the album it was played on, "Elegant Slumming". It was also played on "NBA Superstars 3" as a montage to former NBA players and childhood friends from Detroit, Derrick Coleman and Steve Smith.

Reason: I nominated this song as it has beautiful imagery and an amazing message that is encouraging and that causes reflection
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Survivor" by Destiny's Child
Nominated by: Hornean
Reason: It's rather strange to have the song have the same name and the music video being similar to the CBS' smash hit reality show. It's still a bummer that it got prevented from getting the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 by Janet Jackson's "All For You" for seven consecutive weeks.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Castle On The Hill" by Ed Sheeran
Nominated by: Hsanders1
Reason: I nominate this song as SOTD because it's all about stopping and thinking about where you come from. Not taking it for granted and making sure that you go back to your roots as they are what made you.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Thank You For The Venom" by My Chemical Romance
Nominated by: Shattering Crystal
Reason: I nominated this song because it is one of the band's fan-favorite songs, with an aggressive and fast-paced sound that is present throughout the album.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "Demighoul" by Cancerslug
Nominated by: 208.123.132.14
Reason: I nominate this song because it's powerful and full of attitude. Cancerslug is one of the most underrated punk bands I know. There's never a dull moment with this band and their music.

Nominated by: 2601:681:4F00:938F:CCE2:2201:184:28D5

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.

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

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: "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: "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.
