Sorry for the late post all. Here are my choices for GSOTD for today (tonight).
Alternative Rock: The Beautiful by Five for Fighting. https://pandora.app.link/wyBqg9WVNab A great supporter of the U.S. Military, Ondrasik has given away five volumes of compilation “CD for the Troops” albums to our United States Armed Forces. He features not just himself, but includes fellow recording artists ranging from Billy Joel to Melissa Etheridge and their biggest hits . Over one million of CD’s for the Troops have been distributed to soldiers worldwide. Additionally, the charity site, www.whatkindofworlddoyouwant.com inspired by his song, “World,” saw fans uploading videos showing their respective interpretations of a better world. That initiative raised more than $250,000 for five designated charities — Augie’s Quest, Autism Speaks, Fisher House Foundation, Save the Children and Operation Homefront.
Folk Rock: Into The Mystic by Van Morrison. https://pandora.app.link/vIeegprWNab
Awards and accolades - a knighthood, a Brit, an OBE, an Ivor Novello, 6 Grammys, honorary doctorates from Queen’s University Belfast and the University of Ulster, entry into The Rock n Roll Hall of Fame and the French Ordres Des Artes Et Des Lettres - attested to the international reach of Van’s musical art.
Pop Rock: Just Give Me A Reason by P!nk (Featuring Nate Ruess). .https://pandora.app.link/rO8Nz1PXNab The song was released on 2012 as a single off the album Truth About Love. It has won a Grammy for the best Pop Duo/Group Performance and had been recently performed live. The song is a rock pop with piano hitting hard in the background, making the record sound more vivid.
Country: He Stopped Loving Her Today by George Jones. https://pandora.app.link/blwjVHHYNab During his career, Jones had more than 150 hits, both as a solo artist and in duets with other artists.
Enjoy today's tunes. Take care and stay safe.

@AlyssaPandora, LOL , (not for you mohempstead) you are probably right! However, I will still give it an ear. You posted it, I will keep my word. Thanks for your choices of SOTD. Take care and stay safe. P.S AlyssaPandora I really liked "River" by Leon Bridges, I added it to two of my playlist. Great song. I also liked "Hey Now" by London Grammar, I also added this song to my playlist. And "YES" you were absolutely right!! "Do Not Disturb" by Drake was not at all for me. I did give it a listen too, it was almost as painful to hear as it would be pulling a tooth without Novocain. I suffered through it because I am a quick healer. Just kidding... I have heard worse. You had some great choices. Thank you, take care and stay safe.
