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?

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.

Video: Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube

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.

January 21, 2017: Big Man by Antibalas

The Orange Pile of Dung has earned the title "Big Man" but there are many such tyrants in this World. This song castigates the enablers who through inaudible inaction allow these so-called leaders to come to power. What are the Powers of the Powerless? They are the great, yet unrealized dreams of peace and justice for all peoples at all scales.
