February 28, 2010: Hoochie Coochie Man by The Allman Brothers Band

This version of the Willie Dixon song was the first one I ever heard. Its tempo is a bit faster than some other Allman Brother hits, but it's definitely one of my favorites from Gregg and Duane.

February 27, 2010: The Zephyr Song by Red Hot Chili Peppers

To me, this is one of their greatest songs. Just everything about it wants to make me lie down and sing along to it. His voice, the drums and guitars combined with the video clip are so amazing I seriously listen to it everyday.

February 26, 2010: All Right Now by Free

I was so surprised when I learned this was the unofficial fight song of the Stanford Cardinal. Since my dad is a Stanford graduate, I feel connected to the song somehow. YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube

February 25, 2010: Earth by Imogen Heap

A misunderstood song, with many assuming that it is nothing more than the struggle of two lovers in an endless quarrel as they raise "Legoland empires" to combat one another. However, upon closer inspection, we find it to be a deeper tale of the struggle of our very planet to survive as we - as a race - ravage its surface; we are instructed to "Stop this right away / And put that down and clean this mess up" and told we will "Get only what you give back". Done in a style very similar to that of the Just For Now live performance which is pervasive on youtube (found here), with almost every sound one hears being a byproduct of Heap's voice layered on and over itself. In short, add together Heap's brilliance, her raspy - yet ethereal - vocals, and her seemingly endless talent for scat, and one produces this song.

February 24, 2010: November Rain by Guns N' Roses

Running just shy of nine minutes long, it was the longest song to reach the Top 10 on the Billboard singles chart. And I don't know what hits me so hard about the song, but it's an incredibly moving love ballad. YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube

February 23, 2010: Burn It To The Ground by Nickelback

  • Nominated by [[]].
When people think Nickelback, they think soft rock like Gotta Be Somebody or something like that. Many Nickelback fans overlook their harder stuff. An awesome song with an awesome rhythm, it's one of the Canadian quartet's best in my opinion. A great pump-up song.

February 22, 2010: Knockin' On Heaven's Door by Guns N' Roses

One of the most popular covers of the Bob Dylan song is a staple on classic rock radio. Everything about it makes it worth the five and a half minute running time. YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube

February 21, 2010: Collapse (Post-Amerika) by Rise Against

This song is a great message to the world that we need to clean up our acts and begin think of the consequences of our actions i just find this song really amazing because it is a emotional call to duty by the band Rise Against

February 20, 2010: Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting by Elton John

Breaking his mold as a mellow singer/songwriter, Elton John produced this punching Top 20 hit in 1973. When I first heard it, it didn't make a big impression on me, but once I gave it a chance, I found it's really a rockin' song. YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube

February 19, 2010: The In Crowd by Mitchel Musso

This song really makes me think of my dead brother who I lost when I was only six and I feel his presence whenever I hear it and I also like it just because I like it and it's my favorite song and it would mean the world to me if this was the song of the day and i want to honor my brother by nominating this song for song of the day.

February 18, 2010: Mama Kin by Aerosmith

Supported by a simple chord progression, it's a popular track from Aerosmith's debut album. And although it never reached any major music chart, it's still four and half minutes of rocking music. YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube

February 17, 2010: Micro Cuts by Muse

This is a very special song. It's very...different from so-called "normal" songs...even for Muse. Matthew Bellamy is spectacular showing his singing-skills in falsett. The extremely high voice gives a feeling of dislodgement, the rude guitars get you back to earth. It's a great and very special song, worth being called SOFTD

February 16, 2010: Wango Tango by Ted Nugent

Opening Scream Dream with a bang, it's been one of Ted Nugent's most popular tracks for almost 30 years. With some manic guitar playing, it's not hard to see why Nuge is called "the Motor City Madman". YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube

February 15, 2010: Everything In Its Right Place by Radiohead

The first track on Radiohead's 8th album Kid A is one of the most moving and artificial tracks, even of Radiohead. It is quite different to the usual Radiohead-sound although it's lyric is at accostumed high Radiohead-level. There are many theories about the songmeaning, most likely is the description of depression and endogenous pain furthermore the reaction of ataractics. The song is really great work and shows why Radiohead is considered as such a good band YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube

February 14, 2010: Great White Buffalo by Ted Nugent

A live staple from Double Live Gonzo!, it's some awesome music. I've never been the biggest Ted Nugent fan, but he's a popular request in my radio territory. YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube

February 13, 2010: Echoes by Pink Floyd

The centerpiece of the landmark album Meddle, this sprawling 23-minute masterpiece is the defining track in The Pink Floyd Sound's transition from art/apace/psychedelic rock to what is deemed by pundits to be true progressive rock. It marks Pink Floyd's finding of the collaborative direction that would elevate them to iconic status following the difficulties faced by the bands loss of their leader, acid casualty Syd Barrett. Themes of empathy and yearning amid an exquisitely beautiful lyrical setting, coupled with innovative techniques like daring tape and guitar effects, make this track a cornerstone of progressive rock.

February 12, 2010: Bible Black by Heaven & Hell

The first single from Heaven & Hell's debut album helped the album reach the Top 10 on the Billboard 200 album chart. It's got the same kind of style as "Heaven and Hell" from Black Sabbath, but it's very different, as well. YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube

February 11, 2010: Live To Tell by Madonna

For many years, I never liked Madonna. That is, until this song with a pop ballad and slow rhythm, and reaching #1 on the pop charts caught my attention to make it my favorite Madonna song.

February 10, 2010: Here I Go Again by Whitesnake

Whitesnake's only #1 hit in 30+ years of performing, I think it's one of David Coverdale's best compositions. And the music video didn't hurt the song, either. YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube

February 09, 2010: Indestructible by Disturbed

  • Nominated by [[]].
I'm a runner, and this song gives me the motivation to fight through any pain in order to accomplish my goals,its a truly inspirational song, and it was dedicated to our U.S. troops in Iraq by Disturbed at one point. YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube

February 08, 2010: Save Us by Trouble Over Tokyo

The first Single-Release of his first professional album Pyramids, "Save Us", is a great song about hope, desperation and faith. It shows some bible-knowledge and seems very authentical to the listener. Along the way, it perfectly shows what T.o.T.-Frontman Toph is thinking of when he's calling his work "Indielectro". A great song, which woke me several times on radio

February 07, 2010: Love Is Dead by Kerli

Kerli is by far one of the most underrated singers. The Estonian pop princess's voice is consistently vibrant and her visual style borrowed by Lady Gaga. "Love Is Dead" is a perfect example of her voice and the alternative rock genre.

Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube
Preferred Date: February 7, 2010 (Kerli's birthday)

February 06, 2010: Hair Of The Dog by Nazareth

I think this is one of the best hard rock songs to come out of Scotland. The opening cowbell and that guitar riff kick some major hard rock ass. YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube

February 05, 2010: Strip Cartoon by Jethro Tull

Ah, Strip Cartoon. This quirky little song was outed from Jethro Tull's album, Too Old To Rock 'N' Roll: Too Young To Die (1976). Eventually the CD was re-released, including both 'Strip Cartoon' and 'A Small Cigar'. The song holds a special connotation to me. If a song ever made you want to dance in the rain, and catch raindrops on your tongue - if a song ever made you feel at peace, even amongst a riled crowd - that song has done for you what 'Strip Cartoon' has done for me. Ian Anderson tells a story that can only be left to our own interpretation. That story - this song - is the perfect one for a rainy day.

Preferred Date: February 5, 2010 - One of those rainy days.

February 04, 2010: In My Time Of Dying by Led Zeppelin

There's nothing better than arguably the world's greatest rock band of all time just rockin out for 11 minutes, and that's all this song is about. Every member of the band is at it's best, and if you turn it up as loud as you can and let it build up, the song will suck you right in.

February 03, 2010: Rock And Roll by Led Zeppelin

Based on a traditional twelve bar blues progression, it's a classic Led Zeppelin tune. Although it wasn't a hit by the strictist of Billboard standards (peaking just shy of the Top 40), it reached the Top 40 in one other country, and the Top 20 in two more. But it's definitely a treasure to any music lover. YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube

February 02, 2010: Seven Nation Army by The White Stripes

Best rock song of the decade hasn't been a Song of the Day yet?

Preferred Date: February 2, 2010

February 01, 2010: Just Another Day by Oingo Boingo

A well known and catchy song by Oingo Boingo, this song is relatively tame compared to many of Danny Elfman's songs dealing with paranoia and social norms. It does, however, illustrate my (and perhaps many others) feelings of insecurity and chaos covered by a thin, calm veneer in today's world.
