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?

April 16, 2017: Sickly Suite Part 1 How Are You? by I Monster

I really appreciate this song's gentle soothing rhythms, and the love that is conveyed through the music. Openly it doesn't seem to be a love song, but listening to the music allows you to experience that sense of longing that comes with love.

Video: Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube

It makes you nostalgic. Something about the song makes you want to keep you head down and go back in time.

April 11, 2017: Never Took The Time by Akon

'Cause I've been with this for 16 years and he still doesn't know what kind of a woman I am to him and it hurts that the man you've been for a long long time don't know who you really are. It's a waste of my time over these years I had with him.

Video: Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube

April 10, 2017: Sanu Ek Pal Chain Na Aave by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan

I nominated this song, because... I love Sufism. It has a deep philosophical meaning. It blazes a fire of agony due to separation in the listener's heart by picturing what happens when somebody gets apart from the lover. In Sufism, that lover is God.

April 09, 2017: Nostalgia by Emily Barker

It's simple and very beautiful. The words suit my husband and myself perfectly.

Cool song, cool song, cool song. It's angry and it's cool, and I feel like this is about a girl-loving girl, which is already a great reason. Please choose it?

Preferred Date: April 6, 2017 (My birthday)

April 05, 2017: Messengers From Heaven by Don Francisco

It is a song that is timeless but also given, for a time, such as this.

April 04, 2017: Mojo by Peeping Tom

Mojo is awesome, because the lyrics are genius and the music is groovy and danceable and Mike Patton is one of the best singer in our world!!!

Video: Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube

April 03, 2017: Here & Now by Letters To Cleo

I nominated this song because it took a lot of effort, but I could finally perfect this song in voice, so I could learn it on guitar. This is a great song and you have all the correct lyrics.

Video: Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube

April 02, 2017: Some Sign from Above by ApologetiX

Until very recently, the only parody artist of whom I'd really been aware was "Weird Al" Yankovic; but upon discovering ApologetiX, I've really enjoyed some of their songs. Cream's "Sunshine of Your Love" has been my favorite song for some time now, and their humorous take on it can't help but make me smile.

April 01, 2017: Mahiya by Annie Khalid

March 31, 2017: 99 Luftballons by Nena

Released in 1983, this song quickly became very popular not only in the band's native West Germany, but outside Europe as well, reaching #1 on the Cashbox charts, and kept at #2 on the Billboard charts by Van Halen's smash hit Jump. At the time, this was the highest-charting non-English language single in Billboard history.

March 30, 2017: When I Still Needed You by Afro Celt Sound System

It tells of the plight of many us from Africa who are torn apart for many reasons: war, culture, religion, etc. It is a soul song

Video: Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube

March 29, 2017: Love by Chaos Chaos

I have never heard a more perfect song. It's a pyramid with these 2. A perfect structure and the closer to the top, the higher up you are, the sharper point starts to appear. All of their songs can be nominated, this song just touched me more than others.

Video: Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube

March 28, 2017: Where Do You Go To (My Lovely) (Long Version) by Peter Sarstedt

Powerful song, for me. Evokes so many memories of long ago and far away. Thank you for providing the full version - containing the two verses which were omitted from the more frequently-played one. Peter Sarstedt R.I.P.

Video: Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube

March 27, 2017: "Heroes" by David Bowie

It's beautiful. It's my birthday today and last year David Bowie died. I miss him. My daughter's in hospital and I'm expecting a baby. The acoustics on this song are outstanding and DB looks his best here. God rest his soul. He really kept me safe in my youth.

Video: Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube

March 26, 2017: Sheer Heart Attack by Queen

So powerful and it is Queen on punk! Feels so different than Queen feels like Sex Pistols or even The Ramones... This song is so awesome and it should have been released on sheer heart attack album but it wasn't finished at the time so it has been forwarded to the News of the world.

It is one of the greatest songs ever written. It still holds up 45 years later and it was done for one of the greatest movies ever

March 24, 2017: I Will Run by Misty Edwards

I nominate this song because it moves me and the innermost part of my being. I keep my eyes on Him and not myself....this is where the power is. His strength is unlimited whereas mine is so limited. He is Worthy.

March 23, 2017: It's A Sad World by Bloodrock

The way things are going down all over the world and a young man or woman growing up in these difficult times, including in the United States of America!

March 22, 2017: Drive It Like You Stole It by Sing Street

Because they are freaking great lyrics to get a new year rolling... This should be everyone's number one priority for 2017

Video: Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube

March 21, 2017: Take It Off by Kiss

This is the best song in the galaxy. There is no other song like it. Very unique. Everything is in harmony. Kiss really tears it up with this song. Paul Stanley deserves the recognition.

March 20, 2017: Sweet Hand Of Mercy by Rebecca Pidgeon

Because it's a cool song, amongst her best from what I've gathered.

Beneath the hype and hypocrisy of Christmas will be a more sombre message

Video: Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube

March 17, 2017: Rí Na Cruinne by Clannad

When I first heard this song on an episode of "Baywatch", I didn't have a clue of what it is. When I did some research, I found the exact tune of it. I also discovered that the band is Irish. I like this song because I am of Irish descent.

March 16, 2017: Fraternizer's Hymn (I'm Dreaming Of Home) by Philippe Rombi

For 1914. For the men on all sides who proved peace and love can endure against the worst of circumstances. God bless their memory

Stumbled on this song, and I love it! I had a chance to see Marty Haugen perform in person a few years ago, and he is amazing.

March 12, 2017: One Final Day (Sworn To Believe) by Sanctuary

I nominate this song because of its great intro segment, and powerful lyrics

Video: Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube

March 11, 2017: Thunder & Lightning by Major Lazer

This is my new favorite album! I can listen to it at least once a day for 2 weeks running without tiring. I listened to this song for 3hrs on repeat trying to fix all the lyrics. It is inspiring and can paint vivid pictures in your imagination with very few actual lyrics. The Lord is coming again and Babylon will be thrown down! Are you ready? I'm Basshall pumped! Ask Jesus for forgiveness and prepare for the ride of your life! Happy Sabbath, Shabbat Shalom brothers and sisters.

Preferred Date: March 11, 2017 ("saturday". Shabbat Shalom)

March 10, 2017: Lake Michigan by Rogue Wave

I nominate this song because it is criminally underrated. It has a beautiful use of sound, which whisks the listener away to the confusing world of Lake Michigan. The song has a beautiful message about not assuming the state of something, which listeners can relate to if they've ever been asked by someone (repeatedly) "Are you Ok? You sure? Promise?" when you are actually fine.

March 09, 2017: Goin' Back To Hogwarts by Team StarKid

It's amazing and I love it and everybody should hear it and love it and know it's amazing too. Everybody should know this is the best song in the entire world and they should also know adopt Darren Criss and Joey Richtor and know that not only were they in this together but they were also on Glee and I think it's pretty amazing

March 08, 2017: Christmas Is Coming by John Denver & The Muppets

My nephew, Romeo,(7) in 1st grade is doing a Christmas presentation in front of his class and he pick our family's favorite Christmas album, John Denver and the Muppets.

March 07, 2017: Phone Booth by Garnet Rogers

He has written and recorded so many beautiful, heart-wrenching songs. In my humble opinion this is one of Garner Rogers' best.

March 06, 2017: Vir Jou by Coenie De Villiers

It is the Most beautiful Afrikaans love song - unpretentious and honest.

Video: Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube

March 05, 2017: Real Hope by Colin Buchanan

I nominated this song because Colin expresses the real hope that only Jesus Christ can give us, because he was real man and real God, God with skin on. Thanks Colin, thank you God.

Video: Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube

March 04, 2017: Bad Boys by Inner Circle

Though instantly recognizable to most people as the theme song to the show Cops, I think it stands up well on its own merit. Bob Marley is kind of the be-all, end-all of reggae, but Inner Circle's blend of reggae, rock, and pop makes for a fun three and a half minutes. It's a shame this may be the only thing for which they're remembered.

Video: Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube

March 03, 2017: Act Of Contrition by Perry Como

Singing it aloud or even in one's mind while turning out the lights, it provides a perfect end to the day. When followed by "Good Night Sweet Jesus", the mind and spirit are elevated yet quieted from the noise of the world.

Video: Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube

March 02, 2017: Country Boy by Aaron Lewis

I just saw him perform this on the Smoky Mountains Rise Telethon, just Aaron Lewis with his acoustic guitar. It was an amazing performance, and it made me proud to be an American, and proud to be a country girl.

March 01, 2017: As Long As We've Got Each Other (Growing Pains Theme Song) by B.J. Thomas

Alan Thicke is never going to show us his smile again.
