September 30, 2009: "Miss Misery" by Elliott Smith

Elliott Smith is an often forgotten and generally underrated artist who lived a tragic, pain-filled life. Though he didn't take much from this world, he gave the world beautiful, heartfelt music. Sadly, time washes away his memory, and the meaning of his music. "Miss Misery" is the most famous of his songs, written for the movie Good Will Hunting, earning him a nomination at the Oscars. He lost to "My Heart Will Go On" by Céline Dion, from the Titanic soundtrack. Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube

September 26, 2009: "花吹雪 (Hanafubuki)" by Acid

  • Nominated by: An anonymous fan
This band is hands down awesome. It's amazing how they have three guitarists, but they play in such harmony that this doesn't result in sounding just like a lot of guitar noise. The lyrics of this song are beautiful too. But despite all of this, Acid never made the charts and fell apart in obscurity after only 3 or 4 years together. They finally broke up one year ago today, on September 26th, 2008.
So I would like to nominate this, one of their greatest songs, as a tribute to not only Acid, but to all epic bands that just don't make it to the spotlight. Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube

September 24, 2009: "Rock'n Me" by Steve Miller Band

One of three hit singles from Fly Like An Eagle, this was Steve Miller's second #1 hit. It runs about three minutes, but every second is terrific. Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube

September 23, 2009: "Heroes" by David Bowie

Being a huge huge huge David Bowie fan, this song means a lot to me. It always makes me happy when I've had the worst day. :) The fabulous sax solo at the end is performed by Bowie himself. Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube

September 22, 2009: "Freunde" by Die Toten Hosen

I recently met an old friend again. I haven't seen him for a long while, but it was like we were back in time. For all those who found a real friend... Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube

September 19, 2009: "Little Wing" by Stevie Ray Vaughan

Jimi Hendrix (November 27, 1942 – September 18, 1970), influenced a number of musicians, and Stevie Ray Vaughan's cover of "Little Wing" is one of the best, if not the best, Hendrix tributes. There are no lyrics, but Stevie Ray's guitar playing is pure, raw emotion. Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube

September 17, 2009: "I Do" by Ilaria Graziano

"I Do", from the Japanese anime television series Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex is an absolutely beautiful song. Uplifting, inspiring lyrics, an almost sad-sweet melody. (Though I wish Ilaria Graziano, vocalist and writer of the lyrics, would have gotten more of the credit rather than 菅野よう子 (Yoko Kanno).)

September 16, 2009: "Lithium" by Nirvana

This song, although not as popular as "Smells Like Teen Spirit" or "Come As You Are" off the 1991 album Nevermind, is a strong ballad that still has a great meaning to it. The song is about a man who, after the death of his girlfriend, turns to religion "as a last resort to keep himself alive. To keep him from suicide". Kurt Cobain said of the song "I've always felt that some people should have religion in their lives [. . .] That's fine. If it's going to save someone, it's okay. And the person in ['Lithium'] needed it." Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube

September 14, 2009: "I Can See For Miles" by The Who

Even with the song's lyrics speaking of heartbreak and betrayal, "I Can See For Miles" still manages to stay slightly upbeat, with anyone being able to sing along to the chorus. This song, #258 in Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Songs Of All Time and covered by many other artists (including Tina Turner and Styx), has remained the top selling single for The Who in the United States since its release. It has also featured in many ads and commercials. A great song! Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube

September 13, 2009: "Lawyers, Guns and Money" by Warren Zevon

"Lawyers, Guns, and Money" is one of the many examples of Warren Zevon's genius. To many he's said to be an underrated artist, unheard of by mainstream. It may be what gives songs like this it's charm, or maybe because their just wonderfully written. Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube

September 12, 2009: "Papa Was A Rollin' Stone" by The Temptations

Originally written for The Undisputed Truth, this classic Norman Whitfield/Barrett Strong song was subsequently covered by the Temptations who topped the charts with it in 1973.
Preferred Date: September 3, 2009. The first lyric of the song is "It was the 3rd of September..." although User:Redxx tells me that this version starts "It is the 12th of September..." ;)

September 10, 2009: "Hey Jude" by The Beatles

In recognition of 9/9/9 and the releases of the digital remasters of the Beatles catalog yesterday, today's Song of the Day features a Beatles' classic: "Hey Jude". "Hey Jude" is a masterpiece in every sense of the word, with its inspiring lyrics and landmark melody. It also broke the time barrier for radio; no other recording was so popular and exceeded a 3-4 minute length. No one can deny that this song is one of the best in history. I'm looking forward to seeing the greatest band in history's legacy live on for another 40 years! Kingnee - Youtube Music video on YouTube

September 9, 2009: "Song For You" by Outlaws

I'd like to nominate this song to honor the anniversary of Hughie Thomasson's death today. I've become familiar with Outlaws in recent months, and Hughie will, with no doubt, be missed. Green grass and high tides forever.

September 6, 2009: "Say Goodbye" by I Killed The Prom Queen

Lyrically, Say Goodbye is about a relationship that goes wrong, and is ended. And now, for the first time, he feels "alive", now that he's said "goodbye". This is one of my favourite's by Prom Queen. It never gets old. Check out the music video or song. Either one will be rewarding.
Preferred Date: September 3, 2009. I'm performing this piece in music class on this day.

September 3, 2009: "Gimme More" by Britney Spears

This song was basically the start of Britney Spears' comeback. It was, at the time, her highest charting single since ..."Baby One More Time" back in 1999.
