The Song of the Day (SOTD) is a fun way to get exposed to some new music, or maybe learn more about a song you already know.

The way it works is this:

Anyone can nominate a song on the Song of the Day special page. Once approved, the nominations are then moved to the queue. One nomination is then selected each day from the list of songs in the queue and displayed on the LyricWiki main page as the Song of the Day. The nifty badge on the right is also added to the song's page.

The successful nominee isn't forgotten about either. Providing they are registered (and don't use an alias when submitting their nomination) they receive a notification that their song has won Song of the Day.

After the day is over, the entry is archived. The entry is also displayed on this page until the middle of the following month.

So now you know how it works, why not head on over to the Song of the Day special page and nominate a song today!

Recent Songs of the Day

October 2018

October 18, 2018: It's All Moving Faster by Electric Frankenstein

It is one of the most true, raw, fast, and furiously great rock 'n' roll songs ever made.

October 17, 2018: I've Got A Piece Of The Rock by Sammy Hall

Sammy sang this at his concerts before 10,000 fans many weekends a year. His hauntingly assuring words have echoed in my heart and warded off those unkind inner voices ever since. Listen and see how they affect you. Simple and Pure. All Sammy!

October 15, 2018: If I Give My Heart by Eva Cassidy

This song is just exquisitely sung by a truly gifted artist gone far too soon at age 33.

October 14, 2018: Joy by Jake Hamilton

This song fills me with hope and overwhelming peace every time I listen it. This song should be listened by more people... so they can experience it on their own.

October 13, 2018: She's So Gone by Naomi Scott

I nominate this song as I feel like I can relate to it because a lot of kids at school are mean to me and think they know me

October 12, 2018: Demighoul by Cancerslug

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.

October 11, 2018: Thank You For The Venom by My Chemical Romance

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.

October 10, 2018: Castle On The Hill by Ed Sheeran

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.

October 09, 2018: Survivor by Destiny's Child

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.

October 08, 2018: Heartache by Relient K

I nominated this song as it has beautiful imagery and an amazing message that is encouraging and that causes reflection

October 07, 2018: Don't Fall by The Chameleons

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!

October 06, 2018: Not The Future by Bad Lip Reading

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.

October 05, 2018: الأطلال by أم كلثوم

I nominate this song because I love the words, the lyrics, and above all the singer.

October 04, 2018: Moving On Up by M People

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.

Preferred Date: October 4, 2018 (25th anniversary of the release of the M People album, Elegant Slumming)

October 03, 2018: Sabrina by Einstürzende Neubauten

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.

Preferred Date: October 3, 2018 (German Unity Day 2018)

October 02, 2018: Look What You've Done by The Megas

"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.

Preferred Date: October 2, 2018 (The release of Megaman 11)

October 01, 2018: You're Standing On My Neck by Splendora

I nominate this song because of its uniqueness. It embodies the teen angst of not fitting it to the shrillest moment.
