February 28, 2019: The Ghost Of Macon Jones by Joe Bonamassa

Great lyrics and story from a terrific blues/rock band that I have just started getting into. Joe is one of the top 5 blues guitarists and his band is one of the tightest I have heard in 40 years. Get this album

February 27, 2019: Lonely Boy by The Chordettes

When I remember the sixties then as some of us were looking for a girl to love. I think that the boys had more problems to find someone to love.

February 26, 2019: Boom Boom by Big Head Todd And The Monsters

Recognizable to some as the theme to NCIS: New Orleans, it's a good cover of the John Lee Hooker song. Maybe not as famous as The Animals' version, but it's some feel-good blues rock.

February 25, 2019: Valley Of The Damned by DragonForce

I nominate this because the lyrics inspire me and it was the first DragonForce song ever released, making it pretty dang great to me.

February 24, 2019: In The Kingdom by Whitecross

Good text - wonderful tune. The message of this song is relevant - and full of hope, joy - and faith.

February 23, 2019: In My Heart There's A Star Named After You by Anal Cunt

This is a great song because it's written by a loud and very offensive metal band, which produced an ironic album full of cheesy love songs. This is the final track, and half way through the lead singer starts screaming to put emphasis on the irony.

February 22, 2019: Suitcase by Sia

It is so emotional and heartwarming. I used it for a project and I had all my classmates in tears, the whole classroom turned into a ocean.

February 21, 2019: Hope Rides Alone by The Protomen

It is a powerful song from 2005, that has a message (along with the rest of the album) that still rings true to this day.

February 20, 2019: Dragon Tales Theme by Mary Wood, Jesse Harris & Joey Levine

It is actually a really great song. Her voice is beautiful, the melody is sublime, and it is kept under a rock because it's a rock you wouldn't think would be where you would find such a gem.

February 19, 2019: City Liners by Good Rats

This was our teens. We still think about those days, the good, bad, and ugly but mostly naïve innocence.

February 18, 2019: Everybody Have Fun Tonight by Wang Chung

Even though this is my favorite Wang Chung song, the only thing annoying about it is the music video because it was banned from television for containing flip book-like animation style that triggers epileptic seizures.

February 17, 2019: A Que Florezca Mi Pueblo by Mercedes Sosa

This song forever holds meaning and so beautifully sung by Mercedes Sosa. As relevant to all today as it was when she first recorded it in 1975

February 16, 2019: Can You Feel It by The Jackson 5

Tragedy. I wish a group with ethnic diversity would sing this song. Today the news has more hate and killing.

February 15, 2019: The Sun Is Shining Down by JJ Grey & Mofro

It's amazing and he's amazing. When you feel the music right down to your toes... He's got it right and most of his songs do that to me. How tremendous to make a song of his grandparents' last conversation and let it be joyous and positive at the same time. That tells me that his grandfather was a "glass is half full" kind of guy and he wasn't going to let the last day go with sadness and not saying what he needed to, to the woman he loved and now to the world through his awesome grandson. My family and I have had a horrible three months: my man had a horrible rollover accident April 3 and subsequently a string of bad things have followed that... losing his job, our grown drug-addicted boys stealing from us and burning down our new business shed that we had been collecting for months to start a rustic furniture business, they stole his truck too. Our life is riddled with legal problems and distress from all of this. As I sit writing this from a motel room because we got evicted from our house because I lost my job too. God has us though. Surely we have something good in store and believe it or not, JJ Grey is keeping me moving forward instead of feeling hopeless - that is a good word - he portrays hope and makes you feel like you're not alone in this big bad world. A book for a song... I hope he wins it because he deserves it.

February 14, 2019: Into A Fantasy by Alexander Rybak

This song fills me with unexplainable joy, it celebrates life with its music which is like a stream of fresh water quenching the thirst of who encounters it. This song has that distinct ability to break the limits that words bring with them - "come fly with me". More so, this song tells a story of two people who are just happy to be together wanting to make a little place for them.

February 13, 2019: Worth The Fight by Cimorelli

I nominate this song because it is powerful in emotion and shows how someone can still be weak even though they appear to be strong

February 12, 2019: Games People Play by The Alan Parsons Project

Though it was released a little before my time, I can nonetheless see why it became such a big hit. With its distinctive keyboard riff, the great voice of session singer Lenny Zakatek, and Alan Parsons' guitar solo, it's one of the best progressive rock songs from the 1980s I've discovered.

A sublimely beautiful piece of poetry. Perfect for a rainy day.

February 10, 2019: Word Crimes by "Weird Al" Yankovic

A humorous take on Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines", it's essentially a four-minute lesson in grammar and its correct usage. As something of a grammar stickler myself, it astounds me how such simple things can trip up so many people.

February 09, 2019: Macarena (Bayside Boys Mix) by Los Del Río

I learned to dance along with this song in my music class in elementary school. Alternately, I put both arms out, flip them over, touch my shoulders, touch my head, cross my arms while touching my hips, then I uncross my arms and touch my hips again and when "Hey, Macarena" came, I wiggled my hips before I jump while rotating my body. This song was a smash hit in 1996, being at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 14 consecutive weeks. Plus it took them a record 33 weeks on the Billboard chart before finally reaching #1.

February 08, 2019: Born To Run by Frankie Goes To Hollywood

Even though the band never released this song as a single, this cover version of Bruce Springsteen's song sounded more 80s. They sometimes performed it in concerts including two television programs, "The Tube" and "Saturday Night Live". Their live performance in "The Tube" was overdubbed by the studio version in their compilation album, "Frankie Said".

February 07, 2019: Dust To Dust by The Warning

Magnificent music written, composed and played by three of the most talented teenagers ever! I have been listening to this song non-stop for a week and still can't get enough. This song has elements of the band Tool but to me more passion and depth.

February 06, 2019: S.F.S. by Dag Nasty

It's by Dag Nasty....a favorite for decades. This band is a great combination of punk styles and sounds... musicians that have each done amazing things in their own right! You've got to listen to all their music... it gets better with different members, changes, but it always has its basics... great

February 05, 2019: Der Sommerwind by Esther Ofarim

I found out today that it was originally a German song. The lyrics are about as good in German as in English, which is damn good, considering that Johnny Mercer wrote the English version.

February 04, 2019: Viking Gods by Tobias Gustafsson

It really fits with the game it was made for. The vocals and the beat truly fits well with the theme of playing as a Norse ruler raiding the rich settlements of Christianity.

February 03, 2019: Isn't She Lovely? by Stevie Wonder

Stevie wrote this song to celebrate the birth of his daughter, Aisha Morris. The song wasn't released as a single which would explain why it didn't enter the Billboard Hot 100. It is one the best non-single songs ever.

February 02, 2019: Data & Picard by Pogo

This song makes seamless transition between audio intervals. The music video includes incredibly precise lighting and amazingly accurate recreations of the Star Trek characters' mannerisms whilst acting.

February 01, 2019: Me Amas Y Me Dejas by Sandro

I nominated this song because I go through this every six months with my boyfriend because we live in separate states and when he visits me and leaves me, it's pretty sad.
