Song of the Day 2018


Hey friends: In 2018, I’m planning to occasionally spotlight a “song of the day.”

Here are all the postings.


For each song I spotlight, I will write a brief description of the song and my reaction to it. The songs will not necessarily be my favorite songs, but they will generally be songs that I like. I will try to select a wide variety of songs to cross-section my taste in music. Accompanying write-ups will vary from a couple sentences to a few paragraphs.

For each song I will plan to embed a YouTube video of the song so you can listen while you read. In addition, I will plan to update the Spotify playlist lower on this page to include every song I highlight that is available. I won’t “sticky” every song spotlight to the top of the front page, but I will keep this page stickied.

Important rule: I will limit picks to one song per artist, and not necessarily my favorite song for each artist.


Yes, I know the Top 100 Everything remains incomplete, as are plenty of other long-term writing projects I’ve embarked on I had hoped to finish it before the end of 2017, but didn’t quite get there. Maybe someday.


  • STATMYALTIYCHBBITGSOAT: Song that, at the moment you are listening to it, you can’t help but believe it’s the greatest song of all time
  • TPOFUTYUOIT: The paradox of feeling utterly timeless, yet undeniably of its time

Songs of the Day

I will periodically update this list to include every song I spotlight.
