Song: "Mother Earth And Father Time" by Richard M. Sherman & Robert B. Sherman
Nominated by: 188.8.131.52
Reason: This song never ceases to bring me joy because it is so simply true and wraps me in a loving, caring hug! Thank you and especially the Sherman composers, Debbie Reynolds and especially E.B. White for this wonderful story. And though they have all passed on, still they live on by sharing their talents with all of us, wow!
Song: "The Winter Tree" by Renaissance
Nominated by: 184.108.40.206
Reason: Pure joy, beauty, complex simplicity, a spirit of fearless creativity, a must experience of hope during the icy windy bleak January.
Song: "Adios A La Pasada (Goodbye To The Past)" by Bruford
Nominated by: 2607:FEA8:4E5F:FFED:8501:AD9A:FD9B:BAEC
Reason: Going thru some grieving, and letting the badness go, so the light can shine thru... Jah rastafari
Song: "Big Bird On The Farm / One Little Star" by Sesame Street
Nominated by: Hornean
Reason: Listening to this song, it makes me break down and cry. It makes me how much I miss my aunt after she was killed in a hit and run accident in 2013. It is by far the most emotional Sesame Street song I ever heard.
Song: "So Sad (The World's In A Tangle)" by Canned Heat
Nominated by: 220.127.116.11
Reason: The world is in a tangled death spiral. So sad. Forewarned for decades, the GrumpTrumpocalypse idiocracy boogies right into the worst case scenario of poisonous, slop-sewage waters, kills all sealife, and sells fossil fuels with nukes to light up the occasion. You know we’re had, man, shake things up a bit.
Song: "Wave" by Antonio Carlos Jobim
Nominated by: 18.104.22.168
Reason: I nominate Wave by Jobim as Song Of The Day no matter what day today is because this song is timeless. When I heard this song it was Eternity.
Song: "Headshrinker" by Bad Love Junkie
Nominated by: 22.214.171.124
Reason: I was going through a very difficult time in my life when I heard this song being played live by the performer - such a beautiful song, it’s saved my life
Song: "Just A Wearyin' For You" by Paul Robeson
Nominated by: 2A02:C7D:7AB5:8E00:1DB0:A9AE:E601:3E66
Reason: I nominate this song because it reaches the heart to all who listen to it. Sung by the finest baritone then and now. Who? Paul Robeson of course. I am 89 years old and still love the music the man sang.
Song: "Rock 'N' Roll McDonald's" by Wesley Willis
Nominated by: 126.96.36.199
Reason: I nominated this song because Wesley Willis is a man whose life was too tragic, yet interesting, to forget. I think that we should remember him through his music and art. Rock N Roll McDonald's is one of his greatest pieces too, with an emotional buildup to one of music's greatest choruses of all time. And of course we can't forget Wesley's critical and thought-provoking lyrics of the American lifestyle. Rock London, rock on Chicago.
Song: "Confide In Me (French Version)" by Kylie Minogue
Nominated by: 2A02:C7F:D01F:9900:8DEA:EFF7:B351:F0C
Reason: I nominated this song because it is wonderful and shows how versatile she is.
Song: "The Ballad Of Apollo XIII" by Julia Ecklar
Nominated by: 2601:646:C780:6B0:C46D:6A3F:1080:3A12
Reason: I nominated this song to remind everyone of the trials faced by the Apollo 13 crew in the past few days in 1970. The Ballad Of Apollo XIII is a beautiful tribute to the brave astronauts and the hard working souls in Mission Control.
Preferred Date: April 17, 2019 (For the 49th anniversary of the Apollo 13 splashdown.)
Song: "Matador De Passarinho" by Rogério Skylab
Nominated by: Matheus Ferrarezi
Reason: One of the most well-known songs by one of the most irreverent and unorthodox Brazilian singers of all time. 'Nuff said.
Song: "The Cat" by The New Christy Minstrels
Nominated by: 2600:6C5E:4080:367:49BA:DF78:A265:FB00
Reason: I nominate this song because you laugh and unfortunately can commiserate with owner. I envision a hair-pulling, eye-bulging fellow straight out of Mad Magazine.
Song: "Wonder Under" by Glad Rags
Nominated by: 2A02:C7D:A381:1200:857F:4109:F414:55A4
Reason: It's short but sweet: a great song to repeat over and over. I don't know if it's unfinished or something right now but still I'm in love with this song. It feels like you're in another place all together. It's amazing what songs can do these days.
