Episode 329 - Top Ten Existential Songs Volume 3 w/Gabe Scalone

Episode 328 - Top Ten Metallica Songs w/Abe Eisen, Ira Eisen & Eric Rohloff
<img src="https://assets.podomatic.net/ts/96/10/45/theebeneisen/1400x1400_12933479.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br />The 3rd and final episode taped while on assignment in Wisconsin tackles the godfathers of heavy metal. Inarguably the most commercially successful metal band in history and perhaps it's most creative and vital, Metallica broke through in the mid 80's like a buzzsaw, taking the genre to dizzying new heights. When it came time for their turn as the "biggest band in the world" in 1991, they seized the opportunity to put a heavy metal album in the hands of seemingly every kid in America. Metallica was and is still a force to be reckoned with and ATTT is proud to welcome 2 of Ben's brothers and a childhood friend to the podcast to talk about the heaviest band of all time and metal's crowning achievement. Special thanks to guests Abe and Ira Eisen as well as our pal Eric for an epic show that gets to all of the essentials.

August Extra Credit From The Archives - Episode 147 - Top Ten Whistling Songs w/Tony Ross
<img src="https://assets.podomatic.net/ts/96/10/45/theebeneisen/1400x1400_12930158.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br />On the first Friday of every month, All Time Top Ten's helper monkey digs deep into the grab bag that is the ATTT Archives and pulls out a classic episode for your extra enjoyment. All summer long, we've been taking it easy on you, with lighthearted episodes that tackle the most trivial of subjects, and August's bonus episode is no different. Let's go back to a dusty hotel room in the certified hell-hole that is Primm, Nevada for a podcast from 2014. Taping from deep within the condemned bowels of Whiskey Pete's hotel in Primm, Nevada, Ben is joined by the always chipper Tony Ross to bring you the greatest songs that feature whistling. Whistling can do much to accentuate a song and sometimes it becomes the very thing that makes a song great. Either way, we've got big time variety in this episode and lots of laughs and stories to go along with some awesome music.

Episode 327 - Top Ten Songs About Friendship w/DJ Hostettler, Dixie Jacobs & Chris Van Gompel
<img src="https://assets.podomatic.net/ts/96/10/45/theebeneisen/1400x1400_12923422.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br />As the Divine Ms. M will tell you, you got to have friends to make the day last long. In this uncertain and vicious world that's overrun with liars and cheats, a good friend or two can mean the difference between joy and despair. In that spirit, Ben is joined by some of his oldest friends in the world for a podcast that features songs that explore the many-layered facets to friendship, while jumping genres faster than you can say "I love you, man." Top Ten Songs About Friendship is the 2nd of 3 podcasts that were taped while Ben was on assignment in Wisconsin, and this week's show is a nostalgic trip with 3 pals with dozens of years of friendship behind it. We hope you share it with some of your besties, BFFs, buds, pals, chums, casual acquaintances, and that dude you barely know.

Episode 326 - Top Ten Doo-Wop Classics w/Paul Eisen
<img src="https://assets.podomatic.net/ts/96/10/45/theebeneisen/1400x1400_12912519.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br />Doo-wop music of the 50s and early 60s was born on the mean streets of New York City. Borrowing from pop, jazz and blues; groups began popping up all over The Big Apple with that signature doo-wop sound - tight 4 or 5-part harmonies, nonsense syllables, simple rhythms and little to no instrumentation. Doo-wop started out of stripped-down necessity - basically its the kind of group that literally any 4 or 5 people could form, as long as they could sing. As the genre progressed throughout the 50's it began to get more sophisticated and branched off to other regions and incorporated more styles and arrangements. By the time the genre had seen it's decline in the 60's, it had laid the groundwork for rock n roll, soul and all the great sounds to come out of Detroit and Liverpool. For that we owe it to doo-wop to give it it's own episode of ATTT. Of course we have our ace in the hole, Paul Eisen, aka Ben's dad, who lived in NYC in the 50's and was an impressionable pre-teen and teenager during doo-wop's heyday. You can bet he has an opinion or two on what he considers his #1 favorite style of music, as he has been a devoted fan since the beginning.

Episode 325 - Top Ten Bands We'd Love To See Reunite w/Steve Deutsch
<img src="https://assets.podomatic.net/ts/96/10/45/theebeneisen/1400x1400_12901516.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br />For whatever reason, the law of bands is that they have to break up, except for U2. U2 will be around when Imagine Dragons is being inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame. For the most part, all good things do come to an end, including some of the best bands, groups, and awesome-music-making-partnerships of all time. What we'd love is for some of our faves to come back and reunite. However, since this is our rock n roll fantasy, we want these reunions to be more than just your typical headlining slot at Coachella, we want this to be a REAL reunion, as in the bands in question would be an active band again, with new music. Another caveat for this particular list is that the reunion is 'technically' possible, as in, the band's original or classic lineup has to all be alive. So it's something that, while not likely, could indeed actually happen for real. Ben has enlisted the services of bass player, producer and engineer extraordinaire Steve Deutsch to help think up some ridiculous never-will-happen-in-a-million-years scenarios and dream about what will never be... or will it? Steve is always working on new music, including with his current band Milk The Clock.

Episode 324 - Top Ten Indie Rock Bands Of The 2000s Vol. 1 w/Chrissy Olsen
<img src="https://assets.podomatic.net/ts/96/10/45/theebeneisen/1400x1400-318x318+32+2_12891782.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br />In the wake of the devastation that rap rock and nu metal left on rock n roll in the late 90s, a new sound emerged in the early-mid 2000s. Bands from all over the world began popping up with such diverse influences as punk rock, new wave, progressive rock, garage rock and EDM to give rock n roll one last gasp of life before the banjos killed it forever. Some call it the 'death rattle'. Some who are less cynical would call it an exciting time to be a fan of rock, while the hipsters called it whatever was the most contrarian term they could think of. For our purposes this week, we're calling it 'indie rock', and it has nothing to do with what record label you were signed to. The bands on this list didn't have a ton in common, other than the fact that they were a brief antidote to the dumbed down metal and bummer rock of 2000-2009. Heck, some of these bands scored hits on the pop charts, which seems impossible in 2018. Pal Of The Pod Chrissy Olsen is a big fan of this era, and she joins ATTT to help count down the first volume of the best bands in the scene that stretched from the Pacific Northwest to the UK.

Episode 323 - Top Ten Songs From The Complaint Department Volume 2 w/Diane Stroud
<img src="https://assets.podomatic.net/ts/96/10/45/theebeneisen/1400x1400_12881598.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br />Welcome to summer 2018, people. It's hot. It's humid. Everyone is either filled with rage or acting like a jackass, or both. There's only one way to safely release all this anger - Festivus in July! As Frank Costanza will tell you the blessed holiday of Festivus begins with the airing of grievances. We here at ATTT have got a lot of problems with you people, and now you're gonna hear about it, in song form. Songs that have complaints, objections, criticisms, nitpicking and straight up beef are featured in this week's podcast, and we could find no one better to help us let it all out than the saltiest curmudgeon we know. You guessed it, the great Diane Stroud is back again to help you get out your pent up aggression, in the healthiest way possible - through music!

Episode 322 - Top Ten Angry Heartbreak Songs Volume 2 w/Ryan Blake
<img src="https://assets.podomatic.net/ts/96/10/45/theebeneisen/1400x1400_12870110.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br />There’s no anger like heartbroken anger like no anger we know. Some of the best and most vital songs on the subject of love are filled with resentment and bitterness. These feelings can manifest themselves through song in a slow-burning rage where the music is as creepy as the sentiment. Other angry heartbreak songs are exploding at the seams with righteous fury. All of this and more can be heard in the latest ATTT pod, and the man with the plan to bring this episode back for a second go-around is The Old Boy Himself, Ryan “You Wouldn’t Like Me When I’m Angry” Blake, who we all know as one of the nicest dudes on the planet. Until you break his heart. Don’t. If you haven’t dug into Angry Heartbreak Songs Volume 1, it’s good but be warned - this is episode 2, so it sounds pretty damn primitive. We were just figuring this thing out in 2011.

Episode 321 - Top Ten Underrated Guitarists w/Alex Dubovoy
<img src="https://assets.podomatic.net/ts/96/10/45/theebeneisen/1400x1400-414x414+0+3_12857426.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br />Every few years the fine upstanding folks at Rolling Stone Magazine take a break from talking about how great Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and U2 are; and release an updated version of their 100 Greatest Guitarists feature. Every time they do they incur the wrath of guitar geeks the world over, howling with rage at the miscues, overpraising and especially the snubs of some of the most criminally underrated guitar slingers to ever don an axe. (By the way, ATTT incurs this wrath weekly, so we feel their pain, on a much smaller scale of course...) Enter guitar wizard and holder of strong opinions Alex Dubovoy, who brings his musical knowledge and New York attitude to lay waste to Rolling Stone and in the process, helps Ben nominate 20 amazing guitar players that RS unjustly snubbed on their list. This show is for novelty purposes only, but believe it, the rage is real. These are just a few of the most unbelievably underrated guitarists we know of. Please be nice to us if you disagree. :) Alex has spent more than 2 decades as the guitarist for NYC legends The Hanslick Rebellion.

Episode 320 - All Time Top Ten World Tour w/Chris Wolffing
<img src="https://assets.podomatic.net/ts/96/10/45/theebeneisen/1400x1400_12845905.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br />From the mean streets of New York City to the blessed rains of Africa, it's a great big world. Even as technology brings us virtually closer together, there's nothing that can compare to seeing and experiencing the sights and sounds of this endlessly fascinating planet of ours in person. In that spirit, Ben and special guest traveler Chris Wolffing set their sights on a globetrotting adventure, and the lads play some of the best songs about places around the globe, using the music to get them as close to these far off places as they can without actually updating their passports. Things get a bit hairy in certain locales, but nothing can slow down the longing for adventure and experience. All aboard! "As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life — and travel — leaves marks on you. Most of the time, those marks — on your body or on your heart — are beautiful." - Anthony Bourdain Stream this playlist on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/user/alltimetopten/playlist/5v48w5MKdooYvRPXs5Qspj?si=w5GrE2w8TCKIxnpxfWI52Q

Episode 319 - Top Ten "Short" Prog Rock Songs w/Fernando Perdomo and Adam Sears
<img src="https://assets.podomatic.net/ts/96/10/45/theebeneisen/1400x1400_12834835.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br />Looking at it from a musicologist's point of view, genre anomalies can be fascinating. Most music genres have their rules and parameters by which a standard band operates. In the world of progressive rock, or prog rock, or simply 'prog' if you know your stuff; expansiveness is a virtue. Your average prog album is 60 minutes and 4 tracks, or so the cliche goes. What ATTT is all about this week is the anomaly - the 'short' prog song, and for our intents and purposes all of this week's tracks are under 5 minutes long. No suite sections, no interludes, absolutely no radio edits! Of course if it's a progressive rock episode, we have to be joined by 2 of the biggest prog nerds we know - Certified Prog Wizard and leader of SoCal prog titans Lobate Scarp Adam Sears is back; as well as Prog Sorcerer-In-Training Fernando Perdomo. To devotees of the genre, we hope we did you proud, although the inevitable nitpicking will surely commence immediately. *eyeroll* The picks are outstanding and the conversation is as hilarious and nerdy as you'd expect. Enjoy! Fernando has just released his first all-prog album Out To Sea, and is a featured performer at next year's upcoming Yes Cruise To The Edge. Find out more at https://www.fernandoperdomo.com Adam's band Lobate Scarp has new music coming out soon.

Episode 318 - Top Ten Singing Drummers w/Dustin Prince
<img src="https://assets.podomatic.net/ts/96/10/45/theebeneisen/1400x1400_12821202.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br />The act of singing lead and playing drums simultaneously is a feat so insane it boggles the mind. It's like having two brains working at once, while working your ass off physically, and somehow finding time to breathe. It shouldn't be possible. The folks on this week's list deserve endless respect, whether you're a fan of their music or not. Pal Of The Pod Dustin Prince returns to help count down the superhuman Singing Drummer. Note: for our purposes the guideline is they must sing lead and play drums at the same time to make this list. Enjoy!

Episode 317 - Grammy Song Of The Year Winners 1970-1989 Worst To First w/David Daskal
<img src="https://assets.podomatic.net/ts/96/10/45/theebeneisen/1400x1400_12808916.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br />Behold! Here's another installment of our severely popular feature "Worst To First", in which we take a subject that has a finite number of entries and count them not down, but up from the bottom to the top! The immortal David Daskal is back to discuss the music from his 2 favorite decades - the 70's and 80's - and the songs that were voted Song Of The Year by The Grammy Awards from 1970-1989. Do yourself a favor and try not to look up the entries for this list before listening. We think you'll be surprised by what the Grammys thought were the best songs of these particular years, and not necessarily surprised in a good way. Some of these picks are a bit rough, but hang in there, dear listeners - true to the episode title, they get better as they go. Let's go Worst To First!

Episode 316 - Top Ten Songs From Commercials w/Jason Kramer
<img src="https://assets.podomatic.net/ts/96/10/45/theebeneisen/1400x1400_12796907.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br />We'll just come out and say it - music supervision is not for just anyone with an ear. In the world of tv, film and advertising, the profession of music supervisor is an exclusive club. It's such a specialized field that precious few truly have the skill set, even though a huge number of music fans would like to think they have it. In addition to being a tenacious negotiator and master schmoozer with a thousand connections to bands, management, labels, promoters and other industry types; you have to have a universe of knowledge of music history and you have to be one step ahead of the game, spotting trends months, sometimes years in advance. And then you need those ears working overtime. DJ and Music Supe extraordinaire Jason Kramer has been doing it for many years and as he'll tell you, it's a living. One thing you can't argue with is the results. So many bands and artists have had their entire careers boosted into the stratosphere based on a cleverly placed spot in a commercial. Jason himself is responsible for many of these, as you'll hear. This week's podcast is all about those songs that reached massive amounts of notoriety and popularity simply by an appearance in some of the most iconic ads of all time. Listen to Jason's weekly radio show every Tuesday night on 89.9 KCRW in Los Angeles or online at: https://www.kcrw.com For more fun, here's the YouTube playlist, featuring all of the ads in this week's episode: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mvAfBJNQ_NY&list=PL2Sj57_93sSfMCXJiwtMjsvYVQ-g_v5BI Stream this playlist on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/user/alltimetopten/playlist/7c03uW5YT0uu5OBpQDq2Bm?si=gbLj2TNPQx-EpRMcODjNIw

Episode 315 - Top Ten Broadway Musicals 1961-1990 w/Shannon Hurley & Kate Lynne Bundy
<img src="https://assets.podomatic.net/ts/96/10/45/theebeneisen/1400x1400_12786770.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br />In the fertile ground of the 60's, 70's and 80's, Broadway stretched its legs a bit and took on new voices and ideas with style and grace, bringing in a whole new generation of composers, playwrights, lyricists, actors and fans. Webber, Rice, Sondheim, Schwartz and more wowed audiences with innovative stage productions that featured some of the most beloved songs of the era. ATTT host Ben Eisen is not as well-versed in this arena as he would like to be, so he enlisted a couple of Broadway superfans (aka super dorks) to break down the best musicals of the era and play their most memorable tunes. Numbers Girl herself Shannon Hurley and ATTT newbie Kate Lynne Bundy bring the knowledge and the enthusiasm for an art form that's still thriving and setting cultural milestones with regularity to this day. Shannon's new single "I Found You" is gaining traction on Spotify and anywhere else you can check out music.

<img src="https://assets.podomatic.net/ts/96/10/45/theebeneisen/1400x1400_12774660.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br />It takes a certain amount of... let's say "confidence" to be a band or artist that has a song with your name in it's title. It's also a stroke of artistic genius and only a precious few masters can wish to have that lightning bolt of inspiration, to boldly say to the world, "my massive ego is so immense, people must sing my name back to me at stadiums across the globe. Yes, I'm just that awesome." Ok maybe this is the part where we say we here at ATTT genuinely love the artists and bands in today's podcast, and the songs featured this week are awesome. Oh yeah and Ultra-Pal-Of-The-Pod Gabe Scalone is back, calling in from still thawing out Maryland. Poor sap. Anyway, this is a silly topic that turned into a fun episode. Enjoy!

Episode 313 - Top Ten Songs About Class Warfare Vol. 1 w/Rick Torres & Jordan Summers
<img src="https://assets.podomatic.net/ts/96/10/45/theebeneisen/1400x1400_12762079.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br />All societies have variations on the subject but here's how it works in a nutshell: The upper class has a perceived and therefore real superiority over the middle class and the lower class. The middle class is cool with this because they always have the lower class to look down on. The lower class is always looking up, and whether it's in reverence or disgust, they look up. Each one has struggles, either to maintain their place or to improve it, and the beat, as they say, goes on. All Time Top Ten is proud to welcome back Rick Torres and Jordan Summers to offer their unique perspectives on the subject and show off their awesome tastes in music. They're here to help us count down the best songs about the eternal struggles of the haves, the have-nots and the eventually-will-have-as-soon-as-one-of-their-hairbrained-get-rich-quick-schemes work, dammit. Rick's band DirtyCakes can be found tearing the roof off of venues all over Southern California.

Episode 312 - Top Ten Video Vamps w/Matt Dinan & Tony Ross
<img src="https://assets.podomatic.net/ts/96/10/45/theebeneisen/1400x1400_12748869.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br />Ok, we're going to keep this as classy as humanly possible. We loved music videos, back when they were a thing. For some of a certain age, much of the 80's & 90's were spent glued to the idiot box, drooling over images of scantily-clad people gyrating while the best pop and rock music of the day played somewhere in the background. We'll admit, a lot of what had us hooked back in the day was the forever-burned-into-the-frontal-lobe shots of incredibly gorgeous women like Tawny Kitaen, Bobbie Brown, Alicia Silverstone, Helena Christensen, Betsy Lynne George, Christie Brinkley and so many others that gave us pre-teens and teens our first encounters with the female form in all of it's glory. Matt Dinan and Tony Ross are men of this certain age, as is your humble host. We all agree that these women, who gave us so much to ponder at such a young age, should be celebrated and given their own podcast. Top Ten Video Vamps, or Video Vixens if you prefer, is our loving tribute to these righteous babes that had us enraptured then as well as now.

Episode 311 - Top Ten Songs About Cigarettes w/Mike Dawson

It’s 2018, and at least here in idealistic California, only the heartiest of outlaws will still light up and throw a defiant f-you to the blue noses that view smokers on the same level as pedophiles and drug dealers. They are the last of their kind, still carrying the torch for personal expression and individuality. At least that’s how they’d like to be thought of… Either way, the smoke that comes from a cigarette adds color and intrigue to any story and is sometimes used effectively to paint vivid pictures in the lyrics of some of our favorite songs. The tobacco-laced voice of Mike Dawson is back to help All Time Top Ten give a loving look at the nostalgia and pulp-fictionesque intrigue of songs that are either explicitly about smokin a cig or use cigarettes as a storytelling device. Many genres and eras are represented as we pay tribute to that last refuge of the subversive self-destructive nihilism that surrounds the romantic aura of lighting up. Mike's got all kinds of cool shit going on.

Episode 310 - Top Ten Jimi Hendrix Songs w/Fuzzbee Morse
<img src="https://assets.podomatic.net/ts/96/10/45/theebeneisen/1400x1400_12724954.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br />What can you say about the cosmic mastermind guitarist, freaky patron saint of the psychedelic universe, towering giant of magical otherworldly music, godfather of mind-blowing aural landscapes, mountain-felling voodoo child, harbinger of glad musical tidings, genius of rock Jimi Hendrix? Not much that hasn't already been said a million times by puny musical scholars and wannabe rock journalists who scrap and claw at the impenetrable musical wisdom that the man gifted the universe during a scant 4 years in the late 60's and early 70's. The always charming and talented Fuzzbee Morse joins All Time Top Ten to try and make sense of the immortal Jimi Hendrix as we count down the best songs in the canon. We're not even close to worthy. Fuzzbee's latest album Dreams And Other Living Things contains not 1 but 2 classic Jimi tunes as well as some beautifully rendered originals.

Episode 309 - Two Songs, Same Title w/Joe Lavelle
<img src="https://assets.podomatic.net/ts/96/10/45/theebeneisen/1400x1400_12711092.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br />Here's a concept that works: two great songs that happen to have the same title, but are two different songs altogether. Got it? Easy peasy. Big thanks to the always incorrigible Joe Lavelle for guest hosting this bit of foolishness that is right up there with some of the stupidest aka best work we've done. We couldn't be more proud.

Episode 308 - Top Ten Chuck Berry Covers w/Thad Wawro
<img src="https://assets.podomatic.net/ts/96/10/45/theebeneisen/1400x1400_12699278.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br />This past year the world said goodbye to a man who arguably INVENTED rock n roll. Maybe someday Johnny B Goode's name will be in lights, but Chuck Berry's name is already plastered over every history book that has even a passing interest in rock. 200 years from now musicologists will be studying the guitar grooves of "Maybellene", the lyrical wit of "Almost Grown" and the storytelling masterworks of "You Never Can Tell" and "No Particular Place To Go". Rock journalist, author and Pal-of-the-podcast Thad Wawro is back to help count down some amazing cover versions of "The Great Twenty-Eight" and beyond. Featuring some of the all-time legends in rock, country, zydeco, and more; this playlist is proof positive that the best of the best knew that we are in fact "all Chuck's children". Rest in peace Chuck Berry and to the rest of us, let's rock on. Stream this playlist on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/user/alltimetopten/playlist/3WBAiMHWlIrJbbCZrW7TK3?si=tbSF5GS3S12t2sJiMntGJQ

Episode 307 - Top Ten Side Projects w/Brandon Schott
<img src="https://assets.podomatic.net/ts/96/10/45/theebeneisen/1400x1400_12686111.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br />It's easy to see how some of the great musical talents of our time would feel the need to break away from themselves and try something different. Whether it's a chance to experiment self-indulgently at the expense of their record company, a whimsical opportunity to goof off, or an overpowering need to get something important off of their musical chest; sometimes the best option is a good old fashioned side project. These delightful diversions must be a great release for these semi-tortured souls, because they almost always sound like they were a lot of fun to put together, or at least cathartic. Either way it's good for the musical soul. Speaking of musical souls, one of the best and brightest we here at ATTT know is the mighty Brandon Schott, who helps count down these eccentric musical dalliances from some of our most beloved artists. Brandon's latest release is the haunting and powerfully understated collection Room 8, just released in December.

Episode 306 - Top Ten Reverse Supergroups w/Kirsten Proffit and Manda Mosher of Calico The Band
<img src="https://assets.podomatic.net/ts/96/10/45/theebeneisen/1400x1400_12670539.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br />The timeline of rock history is as confusing as one of those big cork boards from The Wire. As bands form and dissolve, players intersect and branch out constantly. For our purposes for this week's podcast, we're looking at this movement and especially the word branch. Using rock lineage as a tree reference, the bands we're highlighting today are the trunks of these trees, with band members 'branching' out to success, sometimes getting bigger than the band that they sprouted from. In short, a "reverse supergroup" is a band that started off with a bunch of nobodies, but 2 or more of the band's members went on to great success in subsequent projects. The reverse supergroup is where it all starts. Kirsten Proffit and Manda Mosher of Calico The Band are back to help count down these entry points for some of the biggest names in rock history. Get your historian hat on and listen up. If you missed Kirsten and Manda's last appearance on the show, we discussed the other end of the spectrum - the classic supergroup.
