* nominated by ''[[User:91.49.170.201|91.49.170.201]]''.
 
::''This is a finely crafted, hand-made song of natural beauty. One of the kind you hear rarely these days. The melody and rhythm are awesome. I especially love the instrumental part in the middle - going from accoustic guitar to piano to saxophone. The lyrics are a yearning for music with a heart and soul.''

===='''October 02, 2008''': '''[[The Beautiful South:A Little Time]]'''====
 
* nominated by ''[[User:91.49.130.63|91.49.130.63]]''.
 
::''This jazzy pop tune shows [[The Beautiful South]] at their best. Sung by Dave Hemingway and Briana Corrigan, it does not actually have a chorus but is set up as a dialogue between a man and a woman whose relationship is about to break apart. The witty video - which got a Brit award in 1991 - shows the couple in a devastated house after a fight. [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ttuA1UEUAI0 video]''

* nominated by ''[[Special:Contributions/91.49.169.210|91.49.169.210]]''.
 
::''This is the song that introduced me to [[The Hooters]] and made me a fan. More than twenty years ago this song made its way straight to my heart and opened it for the music of The Hooters. It is a perfect blend of folk and rock. It has a special feeling to it that is difficult to describe - mysterious, warm, melancholic, wistful come to mind. The lyrics are about not giving in to addictions. [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KqNJ7lGI-Gk video]''

===='''November 10, 2008''': '''[[Cyndi Lauper:Time After Time]]'''====
 
* nominated by ''[[Special:Contributions/91.49.182.200|91.49.182.200]]''.
 
::''This is a true classic covered by the likes of [[Miles Davis]] and [[Eva Cassidy]]. It was written by [[Cyndi Lauper]] and ''Rob Hyman'' of [[The Hooters]] while working on her debut album [[Cyndi Lauper:She's So Unusual (1983)|She's So Unusual]]. Actually, the album was almost finished when its producer suggested it needed one more song. So Cyndi and Rob - who also played the keyboard and sang backing vocals on the final track - sat down at the piano and wrote this song. The result is a beautiful ballad with a haunting soft reggae rhythm. [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3C6AXnnjgqI video]''

===='''March 03, 2009''': '''[[Toto:Mushanga]]'''====
 
* nominated by ''[[Special:Contributions/91.49.182.89|91.49.182.89]]''.
 
::From their album ''[[Toto:The Seventh One (1988)|The Seventh One]]'', this song has always had me listen in awe as it is so poetic and tells a touching story. As awesome are the vocals on this wonderful track - provided by then lead singer {{wp|Joseph Williams (musician)|Joseph Williams}} (son of famous film composer {{wp|John Williams}}). This is one of the best voices rock music has ever had. [http://www.lastfm.de/music/Toto/_/Mushanga audio]

===='''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}}

===='''February 15, 2011''': '''[[Rufus Wainwright:Pretty Things|Pretty Things]]''' by '''[[Rufus Wainwright]]'''====
 
* 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/>
