#PhillipsSongOfTheDay

#PhillipsSongOfTheDay is something I started one summer because I realized that practically everyday I would have a new song stuck in my head, and I kept track of it by creating a playlist on my iPod.  The reasons for them being on this list is different, but usually it's because there's some phenomenal songwriting, intriguing performances, and/or original production.  Or sometimes it's just a damn good song that requires no explanation.
