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!

March 04, 2018: Jawbone by The Band

This song is eccentric, humorous, and despite its age of almost fifty years, it deserves to be played over again. Richard Manuel was a talented singer, songwriter, and pianist, and this song reflects his talents and personality. Despite its complex key, tempo, and time-signature changes, the song remains pleasant to listen to. Sadly, Richard Manuel commit suicide in his hotel room on March 4th, 1986.
