This song is one of many that defies time. It's inspirational, fun, and enjoyable. As old as it is, people of all ages should be able to enjoy it. I know those old enough to remember the Train era still love this song. Younger people who weren't old enough should be able to discover it. Excellent song. Totally deserves to be Song of the Day.
GNR's first #1 hit on the charts, it is one of the most famous songs from the hard rock genre. With its recognizable guitar hook and Slash's memorable solos, hard rock doesn't get much better than this.
With My Chemical Romance's signature singer and the great chorus, I thought this song would be a great song of the day.
This song is one of Utada's best. She has a beautiful voice, and I believe she deserves the song of the day at least once. The lyrics couldn't be better, either. They are truly emotional and perfectly describe the type of situation she's in. The song itself is beautiful, and she is one of the very best Japanese singers I've ever heard of.
This song contains very creative and imaginative lyrics, and yet a truly important message. Regina's vocal styling are very unique, and this is just a great song to listen to. It tells a nice story and is rather humorous at times.
Frequently dedicated to the memory of Duane Allman, it is one of, if not the, most famous rock songs ever recorded. With its triple guitar attacks, the solos are instantly recognizable. And even though it takes almost five minutes to reach them, the solos are probably more memorable than the lyrics.
I love this song because Slash is such a great guitarist and I have played this song at the first drive with my own car.
Partially because of the song, Cream was credited with laying the groundwork for heavy metal music, and it is a fan favorite in the Cream catalogue.
Tiffany returns in 2007 with a keen sense of song writing and a beautiful new album "Just Me" that deserves some attention. There is no reason why the general public is not getting to hear this intense tallent.
The title track of the band's breakthrough 1979 album, this apocalyptic, politically-charged track features the band's trademark reggae bass lines and punk electric guitar and vocals. In 2004, Rolling Stone named this the 15th greatest song of all time.
With its memorable guitar hook, when compared to Deep Purple's "Smoke on the Water," it is easy to tell the music belongs to Ritchie Blackmore, combined with the powerful voice of Ronnie James Dio. It was not a big hit on the Billboard charts, but it remains a staple on AOR and classic rock radio stations.
Not since Queen's Fat Bottomed Girls had a hit song been written about the love of a curvaceous backside. And when Sir Mix-A-Lot came on this scene with this song , he didn't hold back with his tongue-in-cheek (can I say that?) Ode to Bodacious Badonkadonk. He disses Cosmo, has a shout-out to Flo-Jo, and drops enough euphemisms for derriere to fill up the Urban Dictionary. But the best thing about this song is that it's guaranteed to make you laugh a little each time you listen. Or watch!
On par with "Free Bird" in length, it is probably The Outlaws' most famous work. Like "Free Bird," it starts off slowly, and then picks up speed heading into the guitar solos; it is still fun to listen to. A staple on classic rock stations, a cover of the song appears in the video game Rock Band.
A haunting melody about lost love by one of the most underrated singer/songwriters of our time, Mark Lanegan.
The first track on Weezer's Blue Album. With its infectious acoustic guitar into, and segue into alternative rock, it's hard not to like this song. Inspired by an auto accident involving Rivers Cuomo's brother, it is one of a few Weezer songs to share writing credits, and was the only writing credit Jason Cropper received. It is so popular, the band allowed Activision to use the master track in the video game Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock.
I just think the lyrics are conveyed perfectly through the song's style, and that the singer's voice is beautifully shaky and full of despair, like he's singing the song truely. It also has a great build-up toward the end, which adds so much to the feel of the song. It was on the last episode on Skins, and was placed so well in the episode.
To anyone who knows the riff, the song is instantly recognizable. It is a staple on classic rock stations, and it fell just shy of the Top 20 on the charts.
As a long time music lover, I am truly moved by this song. It is like no other. Its length (23:08) and willingness to change itself into something greater is constantly portrayed throughout the work. It tells of a person's life - all of the mistakes, and the issues. But, it also speaks of the future and what is to come. This is one of those songs that when you are done...you are changed. It is impecable the way the song ebbs and flows all in one rhythmic, and yet seperate, movement. Words really cannot explain how this song has changed me. Every song I have listened to after "A Change Of Seasons"...just doesn't compare. Compell yourself to really listen to the song in its entirety, and feel the music.
Released on Robin Trower's second solo album Bridge of Sighs, it is probably Trower's most well known work post-Procul Harum. From the opening wind chimes to the closing howling winds, it's a great song in almost every way.
This song is a classic and the song writer, Bob Dylan, is a genius. The song captured the 1960s better than any media source ever could. The lyrical masterpiece shows Dylan's amazing concept of the English language and the video shot behind a hotel shows he's wit and cunning ability to play on words. The line "You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows" inspired the domestic terrorist group, The Weather Underground, whose anti-war acts are just as underated today as this song is.
This is a beautiful song in Japanese about not being afraid to live life and enjoy it. Vivid imagery and soothing instrumentals make this one of the best songs I have ever heard.
Truly amazing vocal work from frontman Matt Bellamy. The lyrics are simple but incredibly striking, reflecting the feeling of a destructive apocalypse.
This song is probably the best 27 seconds of my life. It's the most played song on my iPod simply because of "I am, your sin gun chaser." The lyrics don't look like much, but the song itself is astounding.
This has got to be one of the best songs ever recorded. The chorus is catchy, the verses crazy, and it has this insane EPIC ending, described as '300 set to song'
A poignant song about identity and the Black experience in America, Tennessee was the lone smash hit for Arrested Development, a last up-beat alternative to gangsta-rap. Dionne Farris' vocals soar and fill Afro-American and not alike with hope and longing. Here on LyricWiki, we have the more complete lyrics than anyone else and a link to the video.
This song was written by Bob Geldof because of a shooting in America by a school girl. She was up in a chapel and picked off students coming to school with a rifle. Bob wrote this song to try to make me meaning of such acts of violence in our society. This is relevant to present day society as many high school shootings occur and this song allows listeners to understand why such things could occur.
This was the song that catapulted Twisted Sister to fame. They had been struggling artists since the early '70s, but when their 1984 album Stay Hungry came out, they promoted this single with an innovative video with cartoonish violence featuring a young kid that turns into frontman Dee Snider, telling his father he's "Not gonna take it!" This video received frequent airplay on the emerging MTV, exposing Twisted Sister to an extremely large and more youthful audience.
Moyet displays an unusual depth on this song, stepping a bit outside the range she was known for during her days with the group Yazoo ("Situation", etc.). What an incredibly unique voice, and this piece makes the most of it.
This song combines typical classical melodies with heavy metal to create an amazing blend of the two. Bringing the best of two completely different types of music together, this is my favorite song by System of a Down.
Strangely enough, this song has the honor of having the longest title made up of entirely one letter! The song tells the story of three children whose strange experiences seem normal to them – a boy whose hair prematurely whitened from shock, a girl covered in birthmarks, and a boy whose family belonged to a peculiar religious sect.
This song, from her 2007 album Just Me, is highly relevant to a lot of what is going on in the entertainment world right now. Tiffany has evolved into a

highly gifted songwriter. And that is why she should get a shot at "song of the day."
