Take care and stay safe.
Good Saturday evening, I will be adding four songs to the GSOTD post and playlist, the first two songs are coming from a playlist that was submitted here in the Community by @kristinhanggitx and her playlist is called Another City Playlist. Thank you @kristinhanggitx for your playlist.
Psychedelic/Electronic Rock: Is It True by Tame Impala. Is It True Tame Impala is a psychedelic Hypno-groove melodic rock band from Perth, Australia. The music is intended for moving one’s body, and it’s intended for keeping still and observing other forms of movement. It’s bombastic but it’s swirling, think of the shoulder bones of a giant striding feline creature through some kind of tunnel.
Indie/Indie-pop: Hide by Washed Out. Hide Ernest Weatherly Greene Jr., known professionally as Washed Out, is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer.
Indie Rock: Love Like Ghosts by Lord Huron. Love Like Ghosts Lord Huron is an American indie rock band based in Los Angeles. The band was founded by guitarist and lead singer Ben Schneider and is composed of Mark Barry (drums, percussion), Miguel Briseño (bass, keyboard, theremin), and Tom Renaud (guitar).
Singer-Songwriter: Inner Demons by Julia Brennan. Inner Demons Specializing in dramatic pop piano ballads, Minneapolis singer/songwriter Julia Brennan earned a deal with Columbia in 2016. Just 18 years old at the time, Brennan had self-released a handful of songs earlier that summer, one of which, the emotional "Inner Demons," became a regional hit on her local pop radio station. After signing her major-label deal, Columbia released her debut EP, Inner Demons, in late 2016.
Hopefully, I will be at it again on Monday, take care and stay safe.
@MOHLovesAlaska Hey I have a question about the GSOTD playlist. When you add songs to the playlist will those additions be on my GSOTD playlist I collected? I think it will but I wasn't sure. I'm actually listening again to the playlist now.
@UncleBud this playlist was created by me so every time a song is added or deleted it will be noticed by all who have collected that playlist, and of course the same goes for all who have shared a playlist here in the community. The only way you can keep the songs even after I delete them is if you add them to your own personal collection, Playlist. Sometimes you will also notice songs become unavailable even after they are on the playlist, this just recently happened with my favorite music artist Jewel, her complete album "Pieces Of You" all except for one song just went unavailable, so I took them off the GSOTD playlist due to the fact they can no longer be played. When songs show up as unavailable is because of music rights between the artist and Pandora. I hope this helps with any of your questions. Take care and stay safe.
Correction: The album that came unavailable by Jewel is called "Perfectly Clear" not Pieces Of You. Only one song remains available from her album Perfectly Clear, and that song is "Stronger Woman".
Good Monday afternoon, I will be adding four songs to the GSOTD post and playlist, have a great Monday.
Pop Ballad: Turning Tables by Adele. Turning Tables "Turning Tables" received acclaim from music critics, who praised Adele's vocals and its production. The song reached the top-twenty of the singles charts in four countries, including Belgium, Italy, and the Netherlands.

The song reached number one in the UK and number four on the Billboard Hot 100.
Adult contemporary: When I Was Your Man by Bruno Mars. When I Was Your Man While working on the album, Bruno Mars said: "I'm never singing another ballad again," but that came from the gut – it's the most honest, real thing I've ever sung," he says. "When there are no safe bets, that's when I feel my blood move."
Movie Soundtrack: Glory (From The Motion Picture Selma) by Common & John Legend. Glory (From The Motion Picture Selma) John Legend and Common received their first Oscar and Golden Globe nods for “Glory,” the song that collaboration director Ava DuVernay chose as the inspirational coda to Selma, her film about Dr. Martin Luther King and the civil rights movement. “’ Glory’ is about humanity,” explains rapper Common. “We wanted people to feel inspired to go out and help create change for a better world [and] pay homage to those who fought for our freedom and equality.”
Hopefully, until sometime tomorrow, take care and stay safe.
@MOHLovesAlaska I like "When I Was Your Man" by Bruno Mars. I have a suggestion for the GSOTD. It's Ed Sheeran's "Perfect Symphony". It is basically his collaboration with Andrea Bocelli. If you haven't heard it it's a different rendition of "Perfect".

R&B//Soul: Anything For You (The Duet) by Ledisi & PJ Morton. Anything For You (The Duet) As the two sing their parts, harmonize and trade ad-libs, the sweet ballad turns into almost a competition between lovers to see who can love the other more, with Ledisi boasting, “You will never know how far my love will go.” Now, this is a beautiful duet.

Good Monday afternoon, I realize it has been two months since my last post for this post, and for that, I do apologize, especially to @ErickPandora he is not only the manager here on Pandora, but he also created my banner for this post. Thank you @ErickPandora, my friend. I would also like to give some recognition to @AlyssaPandora, as well as @kayden_S. @AlyssaPandora has a post that she does here in the community once in a while called "New Music" and @kayden_S also has a post called SOTD (Songs Of The Day). So be sure to check out both of these posts, I assure you, you will not be disappointed. Without further ado here are the choice songs for GSOTD (clean only) for today. Enjoy the music.
Folk Rock: Judy Blue Eyes by Cosby, Stills, Nash & Young. Judy Blue Eyes Judy Blue Eyes" is a song written by Stephen Stills and performed by Crosby, Stills & Nash (CSN).

Classic Country//A Cappella: Folsom Prison Blues by Home Free. Folsom Prison Blues" Folsom Prison Blues" is a song by American singer-songwriter Johnny Cash after he heard the song Crescent City Blues written by Gordon Jenkins and sung by Beverly Mahr, and released on his Seven Dreams album in 1953. It was written in 1953 and first recorded in 1955 for his debut studio album Johnny Cash with His Hot and Blue Guitar!, appearing as the album's eleventh track. Johnny Cash performed this song live at Folsom Prison in 1968. Due to its popularity, “Folsom Prison Blues” has been covered by hundreds of artists from various genres. But Home Free’s rendition of the song is unlike any you’ve heard before. Since Home Free is a Cappella group, they deliver all of their performances without instruments. Any of the sounds you hear are created by their voices, with beatboxer Adam Rupp leading the charge in making most of the instrumental sounds. The group’s rendition of “Folsom Prison Blues” places the spotlight on baritone harmony singer Adam Chance and bass singer Tim Foust, who split most of the solos. Unlike Cash’s original recording of the song, which is extremely mournful, Home Free’s cover has a bit of a groovy feeling. It’s a new twist on a song country fans have heard many times.
Instrumental Pop music: Feeling Good by Escala. Feeling Good Escala (formerly known as Scala) is an electronic string quartet, from London, England who rose to fame when they performed on and reached the final of the second series of Britain's Got Talent on ITV1 in May 2008.

A Cappella//Country//Bluegrass//Folk: Man Of Constant Sorrow (cover) by Home Free.

The song was originally titled "Farewell Song" in a songbook by Burnett dated to around 1913. Home Free’s “Man Of Constant Sorrow” is nothing but soulful. Filmed at Oak Hollow Farm in Fairhope, Alabama, the quintet dug deep into their southern roots to celebrate the song’s rich history. All of the background sounds that you will hear in Home Free's cover version are all done from voice vocals. You will be amazed at this cover song. Whenever you get some free time you need to treat yourself to some very funny reaction videos from this cover version that is on you-tube, you will be very delighted that you did.

@UncleBud your welcome, and remember if you would like to make a request feel free to post it here, just tag me so I know. I'm not sure if you noticed or not, but I added a song by Home Free for the 2nd straight day. I just heard about them four days ago, the way I found out about them is kinda funny. I was on YouTube watching reaction videos about music people never heard before. This group happened to be one in a video, and I instantly became a fan. Well, I will see you around the community, take care and stay safe.
