From 2008, it's a song that, according to Wikipedia, was released as a single on today's date that year, by a trance group that's a side project of a group I've posted in this thread before, Above & Beyond. Here's Above & Beyond presents OceanLab with "Sirens of the Sea".

Here's a song from this week last year, where it was at #54 on the British singles chart on its way to a #34 peak. It also got some airplay on one of SiriusXM's dance channels early last year. A dance version of the song "The Hanging Tree" from "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1", here's "Midnight (The Hanging Tree)" by HOSH & 1979 featuring Jalja.

From 2003 comes a song from a punk/hard rock band that was at #115 on Billboard's Bubbling Under chart this week that year, and would peak the following week at #114. It also reached #7 on the Modern Rock chart. Here's AFI with "Girl's Not Grey".
From this week in 2003, it's a song that debuted on the Hot 100 at #93 and eventually peaked at #60. Originally from the soundtrack to the movie "Cradle 2 the Grave", the song can currently be heard in ads for the movie "Deadpool". Here's "X Gon' Give It to Ya" by DMX.
Due to DMX's death, "X Gon' Give It to Ya" re-entered the Hot 100 and gained a new peak of #46. Was kind of hoping it would have entered the Top 40 like "Ruff Ryders' Anthem" did.
Here's an act that hasn't been posted in this thread since March 2015, shortly after the thread was created. This week in 2010, they were at #19 on Billboard's Alternative chart with a song that would peak at #4 in July. That same month, it would also peak at #111 on the Bubbling Under chart. Here's Phoenix with "Lisztomania".
Today's song was originally a #1 hit for the Drifters in 1960, and this week in 2006, this version was spending its fourth week at its peak position of #5 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart. It also reached #99 on the Hot 100 the previous week. Here's "Save the Last Dance for Me" by Michael Bublé.
Debuting at #119 on this week's Billboard Bubbling Under chart in 2018, this song would peak only two notches higher at #117 two weeks later, and comes from a movie that you wouldn't expect this artist to record a song for - "Deadpool 2". Here's "Ashes" by Celine Dion.
At #72 on the Hot 100 this week in 2009, and on its way to a peak of #56, it's a trio of comedians best known for their digital shorts from "Saturday Night Live". Here's The Lonely Island featuring T-Pain with "I'm on a Boat". WARNING: Lyrics NSFW!
According to Wikipedia, this song was released as a single twenty years ago this week, in 2001. It did not make the Hot 100 but did reach #85 on the R&B chart. Here's N.E.R.D. featuring Vita and Lee Harvey with "Lapdance". WARNING: Lyrics and video NSFW!
Today's song was created as a modern update of "Pomp and Circumstance" for a Walgreen's ad campaign, for students who were unable to attend graduation ceremonies due to Covid, and premiered this month last year. Here's Bebe Rexha with "Here's to 2020" (included are a full version of the song, along with one of the Walgreen's ads).
Today's song was previously posted in this thread back in 2016, but it's making a return appearance today. At #9 on Billboard's Adult Alternative chart this week in 2000, after peaking at #2 the previous month, it was a song from the movie "Wonder Boys" and would go on to win the Academy Award for Best Original Song. Here's Bob Dylan with "Things Have Changed".
