Past Song of the Day Selections
I enjoy listening to music. A lot. My neighbors know me as the guy who takes long walks singing with his Bluetooth headphones on. (I detest earbuds.) Sometimes I'd be asked what I was listening to, which started me thinking about sharing a song choice each day: my #SOTD.
It's often tough to select only a single song per day, but there's always tomorrow! I'll frequently stretch out a mini-thread of related songs for a few days. Occasionally my pick is related to something happening that particular day: a holiday, event, the weather, etc. Most of my selections are by rock musicians, but I do attempt to keep things interesting and vary the mood, style, and genre. Music is, and should be, very personal, so I don't expect anyone to like all of my picks. I do hope that you like many of them. Some are great songs that, perhaps, you haven't heard for awhile. If a pick is new to you, I hope it becomes a newfound treat.

Thanks to the many YouTube uploaders that make #SOTD sharing so easy. It's rare that one of my choices isn't already there. At one song a day, it will be a long time before I worry about repeats—I've plenty of choices! Occasionally a YouTube video has country restrictions, in some cases imposed long after I've picked them. Apologies if that affects you. Some YouTube videos are also deleted after I've selected them due to a copyright takedown notice, sometimes even after the copyright holder has received advertising revenues from views for many months. I try to select the official video for a song, if one exists, and many labels are now issuing official YouTube recordings. For the few videos that are deleted without an available YouTube replacement, my apologies. They form holes in the SOTD history and YouTube playlists that can only be filled when those copyright holders see the benefit of YouTube visibility.
If you'd like to suggest a candidate song that I should consider, email me at SOTD@dancorkill.com. Follow me on Facebook or on Twitter for a post of each day's selection. Or subscribe to my YouTube channel for each day's playlist update.
