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?

September 17, 2017: Baba Yetu by Christopher Tin

This song is beautiful and inspiring. I love the fact that it's written in Swahili because African music is hugely unrepresented. The Lord's Prayer in Swahili represents that even though our language and religion may be different, music brings us all together.

September 10, 2017: Mikasa by Veil Of Maya

I nominated this song because despite Veil of Maya being labeled under black metal, their chorus on tracks like Mikasa alternate and blur the lines of genres within the metal scene. Veil of Maya stand out from their heavy peers for this reason.

September 08, 2017: Hunting Song by Korpiklaani

Three years ago, I was at a dark point in my life. All my friends has abandoned me and my parents were never around. I was lost in the sauce and saw no way to escape. Then one day I heard the voices of Angels. I was awestruck by the majestic musical mastery of Korpiklaani. The Hunting Song by Korpiklanni saved my life. I do not feel sadness any longer, I only feel the call of the hunt

September 06, 2017: Help Me Believe by Strahan

"Help Me Believe" by Strahan is a raw honest poetic cry from the heart. A universal cry from the soul for something more, and the search for the existence of truth in an imperfect world. Great match for the movie "The Case for Christ".

August 31, 2017: Moskow Diskow by Telex

I nominate this song because of its influence on dance music and representation of a subject matter that rarely is on the consciousness of music listeners in a fun, funky, high energy way. Telex makes you want to defect to Russia and forget any thoughts other than it's a cool funky destination. The Accent, Brigit Bardot????? C'mon????

August 25, 2017: Bathtub Mermaid by Mili

I think this song tells a really realistic tale of a woman sacrificing so much just for her lover, being blind to all his flaws, only to be ignored constantly. She is physically hurting herself for the sake of love, but the guy doesn't notice and even refuses to look at her. In the end, all their memories are gone. It reflects on toxic relationships, which can be a serious problem. The song gives off a really sweet vibe, like how said relationships look perfect on the outside. But when delve deeper, it's very disturbing. I just love this song so much too!

August 24, 2017: Lucie by Pascal Obispo

It reminds you to live in the moment because tomorrow may not be promised

August 16, 2017: Bad Stuff by Cactus

This song is well written and the guitar licks are infectious, it epitomizes the essence of early 1970s Classic Rock. The Rocking Beat with a Soulful feel coupled with Classic Rock Guitar is a winner.

Robert Johnson and Peter French wrote a masterpiece. This song is the epitome of the Classic Power Trio Era. I remember Johnson was in a previous band with Duane Hitchings called Steele.
