Today is Luciano Pavarotti's birthday, and Google is honoring him with a special logo. The Italian tenor died earlier this year.

On a side-note, Google once gave the following reason when being asked why they don't create a special Memorial Day logo for the US:
<<If we were to commemorate this holiday, we'd want to express reverence; however, as Google's special logos tend to be lighthearted in nature, this would be a particularly challenging design. We wouldn't want to create a graphic that could be interpreted as disrespectful in any way.>> ...

I actually noticed this logo before you posted this for once, I hardly ever visit the Homepage as I just use the Search box in Firefox but I was testing the update to the Internet Channel on the Wii and saw it. (but forgot to post)
