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?

February 03, 2017: Masters of War by Mountain

Featuring guest vocals by Ozzy Osbourne, I discovered Mountain's version of the Bob Dylan song within the last month or so and have taken to it like a house on fire. I enjoy the Dylan version, and I've been really into Mountain since first hearing "Mississippi Queen", so the combination of the two makes for an enjoyable listen, with Leslie West's guitar playing as good as ever.

February 02, 2017: Proud Of Our Blindness by Bill Champlin

I nominate this song because in this charged election season we as a people, of both political ideologies, have forgotten the everyday aspects of life.

February 01, 2017: Nothing Else Matters by Gregorian

I only discovered Gregorian a few days ago, and heard of Gregorian chants just in passing, but their take on some classic rock songs is an interesting blend of styles. The original by Metallica has a dark, macabre sound typical of thrash metal, but as a Gregorian chant, it's downright haunting.
