Song: "A Que Florezca Mi Pueblo" by Mercedes Sosa
Nominated by: 22.214.171.124
Reason: This song forever holds meaning and so beautifully sung by Mercedes Sosa. As relevant to all today as it was when she first recorded it in 1975
Song: "Everybody Have Fun Tonight" by Wang Chung
Nominated by: Hornean
Reason: Even though this is my favorite Wang Chung song, the only thing annoying about it is the music video because it was banned from television for containing flip book-like animation style that triggers epileptic seizures.
Song: "Dragon Tales Theme" by Mary Wood, Jesse Harris & Joey Levine
Nominated by: 126.96.36.199
Reason: It is actually a really great song. Her voice is beautiful, the melody is sublime, and it is kept under a rock because it's a rock you wouldn't think would be where you would find such a gem.
Song: "Hope Rides Alone" by The Protomen
Nominated by: 188.8.131.52
Reason: It is a powerful song from 2005, that has a message (along with the rest of the album) that still rings true to this day.
Song: "Suitcase" by Sia
Nominated by: 184.108.40.206
Reason: It is so emotional and heartwarming. I used it for a project and I had all my classmates in tears, the whole classroom turned into a ocean.
Song: "In My Heart There's A Star Named After You" by Anal Cunt
Nominated by: 2601:18F:782:2552:A4DC:6BD3:32DA:FF53
Reason: This is a great song because it's written by a loud and very offensive metal band, which produced an ironic album full of cheesy love songs. This is the final track, and half way through the lead singer starts screaming to put emphasis on the irony.
Song: "Valley Of The Damned" by DragonForce
Nominated by: 220.127.116.11
Reason: I nominate this because the lyrics inspire me and it was the first DragonForce song ever released, making it pretty dang great to me.
Preferred Date: February 25, 2019 (16th anniversary of the album)
Song: "Boom Boom" by Big Head Todd And The Monsters
Nominated by: Cubs Fan
Reason: Recognizable to some as the theme to NCIS: New Orleans, it's a good cover of the John Lee Hooker song. Maybe not as famous as The Animals' version, but it's some feel-good blues rock.
Song: "Lonely Boy" by The Chordettes
Nominated by: 2003:E0:3723:4101:E461:780D:FE7D:FA00
Reason: When I remember the sixties then as some of us were looking for a girl to love. I think that the boys had more problems to find someone to love.
Song: "The Ghost Of Macon Jones" by Joe Bonamassa
Nominated by: 18.104.22.168
Reason: Great lyrics and story from a terrific blues/rock band that I have just started getting into. Joe is one of the top 5 blues guitarists and his band is one of the tightest I have heard in 40 years. Get this album
Song: "Lighten Up" by Renard#As Kitsune²
Nominated by: 22.214.171.124
Reason: I nominate this song because I personally think that a lot of people can relate with these lyrics (including myself). Also, the song is very enjoyable to listen to.
Song: "Queen Of My Heart" by Westlife
Nominated by: 2001:569:7D75:6500:753F:C1C5:F152:482C
Reason: I nominated this song to celebrate Westlife's reunion next year! They are a very underrated band and their music, like Queen of My Heart, deserves to be heard by every single pair of ears :)
Song: "Tarantella" by This Way To The Egress
Nominated by: Thecrowadvise
Reason: I nominated this song because it is a good song to listen to when you're not feeling good about something emotionally. Well for me anyway.
Song: "Accoraccore" by Villa Ada Posse
Nominated by: Albalonga1
Reason: I love Villa Ada Posse and her reggae sound, a historic reggae band in Italy and the first in Rome. Since '90 makes only good vibes
Song: "Yakko's World" by Animaniacs
Nominated by: 2605:E000:8704:CD00:44E:EE6C:E2B6:EBB5
Reason: I love this song: it's educational, catchy, fun, and you can never get tired of it. It teaches kids about the countries of the world
Song: "Sky" by The Human League
Nominated by: 2601:3CA:204:F860:F91D:576D:3C54:F082
Reason: Over forty years after forming as an experimental electronic act, the essential trio of Oakey, Catherall, and Sulley still impress with subtle brilliance and a matchless songcraft. The silky and quite haunting "Sky" blends the raw genius of the original group with a mature pop sensibility which draws in new fans yet keeps the diehard Leaguers very satisfied.
If you ever thought the movie being filmed in the "Don't You Want Me" video looked interesting, here is your soundtrack. We might never know who the titular character is—a spy, perhaps, or maybe a one-off romance which dragged the singer from the depths of depression. But whoever she was, the mysterious Sky, and this song about her, are impossible to forget.
Song: "Exist" by Avenged Sevenfold
Nominated by: Timmy101
Reason: I nominated this song because it's a wonderful masterpiece of a song. The song lyrically is a musical interpretation of the big bang. It's a metaphorical journey through time and space, with a special appearance by Neil deGrasse Tyson. This song is just a wonderful candidate for song of the day all together.
Song: "Godspeed (Sweet Dreams)" by Radney Foster
Nominated by: 126.96.36.199
Reason: A song for all children at the border between Mexico and the United States. A song for the children and their parents.
Song: "Soul Love" by David Bowie
Nominated by: 2001:56A:7718:3400:FD07:D72D:7C25:E94B
Reason: I nominated this song because it speaks of love in real time. Lyrics are true to form, creative and original
Song: "Chacarron Macarron" by El Chombo
Nominated by: 188.8.131.52
Reason: Too often we get caught up in the meaning of the lyrics, while failing to notice the musical context of those lyrics. This song has a bunch of nonsense lyrics, but they actually do have meaning and function within the song. The way that each of these "words" is pronounced signifies a certain meaning. The chorus is whimsical, silly, and slurred, while other parts of the song have more edge to them and provide rhythm.
It's interesting to see that although the lyrics don't have any dictionary meaning, people who listen to the song largely experience the vocals the same way, which says something about how we perceive music. If you take away the literal meanings of the words, it still conveys the same music idea. So then, how important are lyrics really?
Song: "Монстры В Твоей Голове" by Дима Билан
Nominated by: 184.108.40.206
Reason: I nominated this song, because it is so personal and real. Its freaky and thrills. It shows the situation of the author who had a hard time when he wrote it.
Song: "War!" by Zach Callison
Nominated by: Underlord1271
Reason: This rap is incredible. It's fast, awesome, and tells a nice story. Zach had a ex named Juanita, who abused him for money and said that, after they broke up, she would write a diss track on him. The track never came out, and this song is a sort of "Here's mine, Where's yours?" kinda thing.
Song: "Sloth" by The Brothers Four
Nominated by: 220.127.116.11
Reason: Was a very young girl when my mother bought this album in early '60s. My young brain remembered a string of words about a sloth & that the group was The Brothers Four. I'm now 62 & with the help of an "Alexa" I asked her if there was a Sloth song by The Brothers Four. She said no. I asked her several times with song title variations & she finally played "Sloth." I hadn't heard that song in 50 plus years. It all came back to my mind & I cried like I had met a long-lost relative or friend. What a great, unique song & what a great day.
Song: "My Uncle Is A Raft" by Gene Simmons
Nominated by: 18.104.22.168
Reason: The lyrics are pure art and honestly it makes me tear up. I relate to this song in many ways and I would like to share it with everyone. This song may sound silly and childish on the outside, but if you pay attention it tells a story of support and friendship.
Song: "Thousand Years Of Oppression" by Amon Amarth
Nominated by: 22.214.171.124
Reason: Because this song is a good song about how Christianity pretty much forced their religion on the Pagans but in this song, they're like enough is enough and they fight back
Song: "Promised Land" by Jack The Lad
Nominated by: Rod1958
Reason: I nominate this song because it is much under-rated, but sums up the experience of any new arrival in the US. A story of today. Written by a guy who arrived from the north-east of England to work for a while and felt out of place.
Song: "Boheme" by Deep Forest
Nominated by: 2601:2C2:C480:12B0:D05E:C6D4:62C8:37DE
Reason: It is listed as instrumental. However there are people signing something. I would love to know what it is. My heart has had a link to this since the first time I heard it. It moves me...
Song: "Mother Earth And Father Time" by Richard M. Sherman & Robert B. Sherman
Nominated by: 126.96.36.199
Reason: This song never ceases to bring me joy because it is so simply true and wraps me in a loving, caring hug! Thank you and especially the Sherman composers, Debbie Reynolds and especially E.B. White for this wonderful story. And though they have all passed on, still they live on by sharing their talents with all of us, wow!
Song: "The Winter Tree" by Renaissance
Nominated by: 188.8.131.52
Reason: Pure joy, beauty, complex simplicity, a spirit of fearless creativity, a must experience of hope during the icy windy bleak January.
Song: "Adios A La Pasada (Goodbye To The Past)" by Bruford
Nominated by: 2607:FEA8:4E5F:FFED:8501:AD9A:FD9B:BAEC
Reason: Going thru some grieving, and letting the badness go, so the light can shine thru... Jah rastafari
Song: "Big Bird On The Farm / One Little Star" by Sesame Street
Nominated by: Hornean
Reason: Listening to this song, it makes me break down and cry. It makes me how much I miss my aunt after she was killed in a hit and run accident in 2013. It is by far the most emotional Sesame Street song I ever heard.
