Today's Song of the Day is a track from the Cowboy Bebop! OST, off the disc titled No Disc. The song is heavy and yet sounds like a decidedly odd pot-pourri of speed metal, surf, punk and pop all mixed together in a batter of parody. The result is quite hilarious. However, the clincher is the lyrics (attributed to Gabriela Robin) which are included at the end of this post.

Today's Song Of The Day is an instrumental from the OST of the anime Kenichi. I'm not sure of the artist's name, but what a killer riff! I've been listening to it non-stop for the past couple of hours and I'm still not tired of it!
Today's Song Of The Day is Stillwater's Fever Dog. Stillwater is the name of the fictional band from the movie Almost Famous (or IOW, the Wikipedia link above isn't terribly relevant :P) and one of their popular songs is this track Fever Dog, a very 70's growly track.
Today's song of the day is the title track from Philip Glass' seminal soundtrack for the movie Koyaanisqatsi. It is a wonderfully powerful song and like most great musical pieces, paints a vivid picture in my mind accompanied by a strong emotion en mi corazon. For moi, I usually feel an emotion of change and ... climactic anticipation.
