The Golden Rock Song of the Day - FINAL EDITION

After 139 Songs of the Day, it’s time to retire the feature. After 140 days of sending in some of my favorite music, it’s time to push the feature to weekly, because 1) I just can’t think of so many songs without repeating one artist within a month, and 2) I just can’t find so much songs on Youtube anymore.

So now I will be posting Songs of the Week on Sunday to replace the Best of the Week and Podcast features (no, my voice shall not be heard on the internet any longer). It will start this Sunday.

Until then, I offer you a chance to tell me your songs of the day. Just send a email at TheGoldenRock AT gmail DOT com, telling me why you love a certain song, send me any video link that i can embed onto the blog, and it will all be copied and pasted (i.e. no extra work for me) as an individual. Sorry, no reward except for one day of internet glory, and only “serious” submissions will be considered.

By the way, you will be limited to one song a week.

Until then, I offer you a last song of the day. From their self-titled debut album and also their latest compilation of remastered tracks, it’s Three Dog Night’s “One.”

Why did I pick this? Because it was looped for 8 minutes for the introductory sequence of one of my favorite movies Magnolia. That cover was by Aimee Mann.

The Golden Rock Song of the Day - 9/15/2007

Thanks, Youtube, for letting me use a side track for today’s Song of the Day. It evokes the funky 70s R&B ballad (or it might be 90s, I don’t kn0w), and try not to ridicule me for this, because it’s a pretty damn good song if you give it a try. From the album FutureSex/LoveSounds, it’s Justin Timberlake’s “All Over Again (Another Song)”.

With these Youtube videos now online, don’t be surprised if I pick another side track from this album

Yes, I did review it, but that doesn’t mean I can’t pick a song from it for The Song of the Day. One particular moment in the song actually gave me a short film idea the other day, so it’s good enough to be picked today. From Against the Sun, it’s Stephanie Sun’s “Unforgettable.”

The Golden Rock Song of the Day - 9/8/2007

When I say it’s addictive, I really mean it’s addictive. Today’s Song of the Day comes from an album I recently reviewed, and it is definitely the second-best song on a somewhat disappointing album. From the album Ardently Love, it’s Hins Cheung’s “Cruel Love.”

Can anyone pin down what Taiwanese R&B song this sounds like? We’ll make it the next Song of the Day.

Today’s song of the day is not quite fitting for the time and mood, but I heard it on the radio today and was reminded how much I like it. From the compilation album Ultrasound, it’s David Tao’s “Seasons of Loneliness”

Before the next news post, please take the time to check out my short review of Pang Ho-Cheung’s Exodus.

The Golden Rock Song of the Day - 9/6/2007

Since I mentioned Ketsumeishi’s latest album, how can I go without choosing one of its songs? And how can I choose a Ketsumeishi song without choosing one about summer? It’s still hot enough, and the single actually came out a year ago. From Ketsu No Police 5, it’s Ketsumeishi’s “6 Men and Women’s Summer Memories.”

Actually, the MTV is quite good, although I’m convinced it’s part of something much longer.
