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 "Sotd". 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 notification that their song has won "Song of the Day". Also, that their name has now been added to the list of SOTD Winners.

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!

And when you've done that, how about nominating an Artist of the Month?

May 23, 2017: Easy by The Oak Ridge Boys

May 22, 2017: All Things You Are by Eric Johnson

This song is just an amazing work of art by one of the greatest guitarists alive. It's not often that artists of this caliber release music this pure and beautiful.

May 21, 2017: The Ross Perot Guide To Answering Embarrassing Questions by Arlo Guthrie & Pete Seeger

The message and lyrics perfectly reflect the struggle within the media crisis of today's political climate. It also perfectly describes the everyday behavior shown by the current resident living in our embarrassed White House.

Because it reminded me on a spring afternoon of the Taína princess of the 16th Century

May 18, 2017: Stanley Park by Aoife O'Donovan

It's impossibly beautiful and speaks to the despair of being buffeted by the elements, whether they be nature or men.

May 16, 2017: Butterfly Effect by Assemblage 23

May 15, 2017: Seek & Destroy by Metallica

One of the "big four" thrash metal bands of the '80s, along with Anthrax, Megadeth, and Slayer, Metallica tore onto the scene with their debut album in 1983. The penultimate track is one of the quintessential songs of the genre and, compared to other Metallica songs, I think the speed of Kirk Hammett's guitar playing remained unrivaled until "Master of Puppets". The song might run seven minutes long, but it's worth every second.

May 11, 2017: Everybody Knows About My Good Thing (Pt. 1) by Little Johnny Taylor

Great tune... got to hear it... thanks to the great Rolling Stones

May 10, 2017: Broomstick Cowboy by Bobby Goldsboro

Heard last night on Supernatural. Thought it was sweet emphasizing the purity of childhood. Dean had lost his memory as if he had Alzheimer's and the weight of adulthood and his life choices as a hunter of supernatural monsters was lifted from his soul leaving a gentle innocence. As I read the lyrics I realized how sad the burdens of adulthood can be. This song has an excellent blend of joy and sadness.

May 09, 2017: The Longest Time by Billy Joel

A throwback to '50s doo-wop, it's been one of Billy Joel's biggest hits for more than thirty years. And as great a songwriter as he is, it's even more impressive that the song is all him, with no backing band; the bass guitar and the snare drum, all the vocals, the finger snaps, everything. I've been aware of Billy in passing, but only really getting into him within the past year or so. It's definitely one of my favorites to sing along with.

Preferred Date: May 9, 2017 (Billy Joel's birthday)

May 01, 2017: I Still Have A Praise Inside Of Me by The Georgia Mass Choir
