===='''August 01, 2009''': '''[[Toto:Bottom Of Your Soul]]'''====
 
* nominated by ''[[User:91.49|91.49]]''.
 
::This song is from [[Toto]]'s last album ''[[Toto:Falling In Between (2006)|Falling In Between]]''. It is a beautiful emotional song dealing with poverty. Whereas the verses are sung by guitarist [[Steve Lukather]], the chorus and the final part feature former lead singer {{wp|Joseph Williams (musician)|Joseph Williams}}, whose outstanding performance and voice provide the special something to an already great song. {{Audio|292fd3a}}

* Nominated by ''[[User:91.49|91.49]]''.
 
:This song from Wainwright's album [[Rufus Wainwright:Want One (2003)|Want One]] is like a poem set to music. It is rather short and doesn't follow the usual verse/chorus structure - which goes for many of his songs. Its lyrics are very poetic and utterly beautiful. "Be a star, And fall down somewhere next to me". And the melody is very poetic, too.<br/>

:This is another song from [[Rufus Wainwright:Want One (2003)|Want One]]. It is a very personal and heartfelt song he wrote after a quarrel with his [[Loudon Wainwright III|father]]. It's about being left by him and about wanting to see tears in his eyes. "But till then no, Daddy, don't be surprised, If I want to see the tears in your eyes".<br/>

:This heartbreaking song is a tribute to the late Jeff Buckley, who drowned in Wolf River, a tributary of the Mississippi river, in 1997. The two had met several months before Buckley's death. At the end of the song Wainwright pleads: "Turn back and you will stay, Under the Memphis Skyline".<br/>
