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!

Springsteen performed this song with the E Street Band at the Brooklyn Pavilion to pay tribute to Prince who died of fentanyl overdose. I think Springsteen did a good job covering this song.

February 18, 2018: House Of Memories by Panic! At The Disco

Reminds me of my first heartbreak. Played this song on loop, it got emotional lyrics.

February 17, 2018: Cornerstone by Day Of Fire

When I first heard this song years ago, I enjoyed it and thought it had a great message. I read that it was inspired by a tornado outbreak, which I found interesting at the time, but it really meant a lot more to me when, a few years later, I had a taste of how powerful tornadoes are when one hit my neighborhood, destroying many homes, some just a few houses down from us.

Preferred Date: February 17, 2018 (2/17/18 will be the 10 year anniversary of the tornado that hit my neighborhood)

February 16, 2018: Gloria by Texas All-State Mixed Choir

The jubilant Gloria; a mass composed by the renowned French composer, Francis Poulenc; is the keynote piece of the Texas All-State Mixed Choir 2018. I nominate this as Song of the Day because, as one of the most advanced choral masterpieces any ensemble might ever encounter, it is emblematic of the intelligence, the contributed effort, and the resulting talent displayed by all of the young musicians who are invited to participate in an All-State ensemble. Happy TMEA day, everyone!

Preferred Date: February 16, 2018 (TMEA Clinic / Convention 2018)

February 15, 2018: Wreath Of Barbs by Wumpscut

February 14, 2018: Long Road To Freedom by Medical Mission Sisters

The Medical Mission Sisters have remained dedicated to providing the poor of the world better access to health care. Their work and their message is still essential today. Written on the stony roads of Ethiopia, may this compassion illuminate us all.

February 13, 2018: I Know, You Know by The Friendly Indians

The irony and simplicity coupled with the comedic attributes makes it an instant classic.

To remember the past and celebrate the future. Deep meaning behind this song.

February 11, 2018: Get Up, Action by Digital Emotion

It's a great, quality song. Further, it's my childhood song and today I recalled my old memories after listening to this sound track. The robotic sound effect in this track is the best ever. I haven't listened to this type of song before. The most important thing of this sound track is that my daughter also likes this song.

February 10, 2018: Shine On Harvest Moon by Leon Redbone

I play this on the ukulele. I first heard Leon on "Saturday Night Live" and he sang this. I'm a sucker for romantic songs, and nobody does it better than him! We saw him in a small club live once.

Preferred Date: February 10, 2018 (41st anniversary of our first date.)

Preferred Date: February 9, 2018 (46th anniversary of the release of the album 'Lonesome Crow'.)

February 08, 2018: Parting Friends by Word Of Mouth Chorus

We have traveled across the country to lay our kin, dearest Sally, to rest. Now we must travel back. Our fathers are of the greatest generation, and it occurs to me that we may never meet again on these mortal shores. Thus this song seems right appropriate.

February 07, 2018: Everything And Nothing by The Boom Circuits

The song is very soothing and beautiful. Words don't describe the worth of this song.

February 06, 2018: Rock Me Amadeus by Falco

This song has been nominated to pay tribute to Falco who died in a drunk driving accident. This must be one of the most famous songs spoken in a foreign language as Falco was born in Austria, the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and the song reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Preferred Date: February 6, 2018 (20th anniversary of Falco's death)
