SotW Nominations and Archive


Recommended Posts

Use this thread to nominate songs for Song Of The Week and to support other nominations if you agree with them.

- Please note, it doesn't help to vote for the same song more than once in a week - I just don't count duplicate votes.

- Rather than just nominating the first song that springs to mind, try thinking of an appropriate song for a particular reason, for example if it's an album's birthday, try and pick a song off that album.

- One nomination each, per week please, with a short sentence explaining why you'd like that song to be picked.

The more reasoning behind a nomination, the more likely I am to pick it.

Obviously, don't nominate a song that has already been SotW. Here's all the SotW threads we've had so far, right back from September 2009. All these threads are still open, so if you'd like to discuss or add your thoughts about any of the songs go ahead - we won't be angry at you for bumping old SotW threads, especially if you have something really well thought-out to say (hint hint).

Finally, I would like to quickly point out the benefit of the 'Ctrl+F' keyboard shortcut. It allows you to search for a word on a page... words that are in song titles... that have already been SotW.

Please check your nominations before posting them here!

Yes, Are We The Waiting, because that is one of my favorite songs from American Idiot, and it deserves some love =)

I'll say are we the waiting as well. There's just something about that song live that's so amazing. The way it brings us all together when we sing along waving are arms back and forth, how Its calm then BOOM it rushes into st.jimmy. :wub:

and the way it makes me jeleous of all the girls that go up during that song.

Boulevard of Broken Dreams because it was around this time of the year in 2005 i saw the music video and absolutely loved it. I became a GD fan after hearing it :)

I'm for "Are We the Waiting" too, that's such an amazing song, it's easily one of my favorites!

But, I'll also throw out "¡Viva la Gloria!". It's an amazing song, and I think it would be kinda cool because "¿Viva la Gloria? (Little Girl)" is the SotW currently. Ya know, kind of compare and contrast.

I nominate 86.

We can have 86 for song of the week on August 6th (8/6). I'm really starting to get back to liking 86.

Fucking this

(insert You Can't Fool Me videos here)

It must be heard.

I think it's a wonderful song, and the only record we have of it is two live performances. I think having it as song of the week would not only give it some of the respect it deserves as an awesome song, but also get more people to hear it.

(that was me adding my reason)

I retract my previous request for DUI and change it to this. 86 on 8/6. Sweet idea!

But August 6th is 6/8, so I don't get it :P

I do like that idea, even though it's only a minority of countries that write dates like that all weird-like.

Yeah do "86" :D i mean the date will be right in some country's and I have been listening to it a lot resonantly. :D But i'm up for "Are we the Waiting" as well :D

We don't seem to have had Boulevard of Broken Dreams (I might just be being blind) and that's a pretty beasty one for people to talk about... Also, it has an awesome video and it's AMAZING live.
