Episodes of Hall of Songs

You may have some questions after our 1969 picks for Hall of Songs nominees. Sure, you'll hear some of the biggest songs of all-time, including selections by the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and new stars like Creedence Clearwater Revival and L
Recently, and for the first time, Tim opted not to reward the Doors' "Light My Fire" with entrance into the Hall of Songs via the Golden Vote. "Prove me wrong," he told listeners, who were tasked with another election including songs from 1968,
In this bonus episode, we welcome in Kevin Goldstein, baseball writer (fangraphs.com) and podcaster (Chin Music, blogs.fangraphs.com/category/chin-music), who talks at length about the music that he loves. Then, we chat about songs that he woul
In this episode of Hall of Songs, we talk about 1968, when a number of artists who, after all the experimentation and studio trickery of the mid-1960s, start looking backwards and create old-fashioned rock and or roll. For example, we present s

It's the year of the album. 1966 is when the long player becomes the way to listen to music, and massive albums like "Pet Sounds," "Revolver" and "Blonde on Blonde" demonstrate that. Hall of Songs, though, isn't so concerned with the album, so
Some of the songs regarded by many as the biggest of all-time were on the ballot heading into our 11th round of voting for the Hall of Songs, including "Satisfaction" by the Rolling Stones, "Yesterday" by the Beatles, "My Generation" by the Who

Let's talk about a few songs from 1964 that are now part of the Hall of Songs. One is from Motown, one is from Britain, and one is a soul classic. After discussing the newest inductees, Tim and Chris converse over two more songs that they can n
 In this episode of Hall of Songs, we present our nominees from '64, a year with a lot of sounds pushing rock 'n' roll and pop music in many directions ... and also together. Many artists were chasing the "Be My Baby" sound that Phil Spector ma
Two songs have been inducted into the Hall of Songs after our ninth round of voting, putting the grand total at 17. One of those tracks is Bob Dylan's seminal 1963 recording "Blowin' in the Wind." What's the other inductee? Was it a Motown song
Yes, we both love the Beatles. For this bonus episode of Hall of Songs, we take some time to talk about the Fab Four. Among the questions we answer: How we became fans of the group, our favorite (and least favorite) songs, how we listen to them
 Welcome to Season Two of Hall of Songs. And welcome to an explosion of creativity.  Of course, you'll hear the Beatles in this episode, as 1963 marks the first year of their dominance (though most of it is spent in Britain). We'll also hear fr
