To quote Paul Simon, "Everybody loves the sound of a train in the distance. Everybody thinks it's true." There is something to this notion of riding the rails. The romanticism of trains in music is a trope as old as trains themselves. Over the years there have been countless classic songs about movement, freedom, adventure and other lofty concepts; and tons of these songs use a train literally and/or figuratively to express it. A train can take you anywhere - away from a sad place, off to an unfamiliar destination, to heaven or even hell. The Old Boy himself Ryan Blake returns for another installment of the John Candy Trilogy - songs about Planes, Trains & Automobiles. Songs About Trains may end up being the richest in abundance of the three categories, and Ben & Ryan bring you the best of 'em.

If you missed the first installment, Top Ten Songs About Airplanes can be found at the ol' archive page at Mixcloud: https://www.mixcloud.com/beneisen/episode-215-top-ten-songs-about-planes-wryan-blake/

In the spirit of equality, we here at ATTT feel it is our solemn duty to let the ladies have what they deserve. We did enough ogling at the Badass Babes Of Music last week. It's time to flip the script, turn the tables, upset the apple cart, let the lunatics run the asylum, and any number of cliched phrases. In short, we're highlighting the dudes this time around. The hot dudes. Actually the hot men, as it shall be known, at the behest of our lovely and talented guest hosts Shannon Hurley & Linda Trujillo. Shannon and Linda know a lot about "hashtag giggity" and set their sights on the sexiest men in music, past and present. Things get ridiculous, as they must but overall we think you'll be, um... satisfied.

Shannon's new music video "Heartbeat On The Radio" is out and needs to be seen, as it features a small role by your humble host and moderator, Ben. Here's the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tzXQJHr9H6Q

They're edgy. Powerful. Sexy. They'll kick you in the teeth if you get on their bad side. Oh, and they'll blow your mind with a vocal and/or blistering guitar solo. These are qualities we look for in our female rock stars. Not to say one size fits all, because it's far from the truth, but there are some women in music past and present that undeniably have "it". "It" is the perfect combination of raw sex appeal and a "take no shit" attitude. Behold the greatest Badass Babes of music from back in the day to modern times. Pal-of-the-podcast Matt Dinan returns to help Ben count them down while the boys try to rein in their drool. Women want to be them, men want to be with them.

Matt has directed a film and music video or two. Check out some of his stuff here:

Along with eating and breathing, air drumming is an essential component to a healthy existence. For those who grew up on a steady diet of rock, pop, funk, metal and/or disco, countless hours of joy have been spent banging the mother-loving crap out of a fake drum set with fake sticks. One thing that's real: ATTT's enthusiasm for being an air drumming wizard. In that spirit, a couple of our beloved regulars have dropped in for a good air drumming workout, and we mean work. out. The enigmatic David Daskal and the affable Dustin Prince join forces with Ben to create a super-sized episode, complete with 3 top ten lists of air-drumming madness. See if you can keep up.

David's Eagles tribute band Best Of My Love continue their stellar live shows all over Southern California and beyond. Find out more at http://bestofmylove.net

Dustin plays drums for the prog rock stalwarts Lobate Scarp. Hear and see their epicness here: http://www.lobatescarp.com.hostbaby.com

Yes it's true summer is winding down. Soon the air will get colder and the days will get shorter. Eventually your hair will fall out and you'll wither and die. Good times! A while back ATTT presented an episode highlighting some of the saddest and most beautiful songs ever written. It was so much fun we had to do another volume, and this time go even darker. Enter the great Mike Dawson and THAT voice. Mike and Ben go further into the depressing and beautiful to bring you a specific type of pain - Songs To Slit Your Wrist To. Obviously we don't recommend actually doing it and we urge anyone on the brink to seek help and please please listen to this episode when you're in a better place. For everyone else, hold on tight and don't give up. This is a heavy one.

Mike's musings on the world and links to everything he's been working on can be chronicled on his Twitter feed: https://twitter.com/DawsAngeles

The 90's were a glorious time for music and culture. Lines between every style under the sun were being blurred like never before. For the first time in the mainstream, hip hop was front and center, and this meant there was a lot of crossover potential with pop, rock and even metal. Styles were merging and mutating, and the united colors of Benetton were flying proudly. This seems like a good entry point to explore the wide world of duets. Ben is joined by the illustrious hosts of a new podcast that explores black culture, parenting and current events from a decidedly Woke angle. Nyaze and Melissa from the fabulous Woke With Kids podcast are in the studio reminiscing about slow jams, New Jack Swing, the "Alternative Nation" and other music gems from the amazing 1990's.

Who are we? Why are we here? What does it all mean? Why do we exist? Since the beginning of time, scholars and philosophers have debated the meaning of existence and while we may be no closer to finding the answer to all of these questions, we can put our thoughts on the subject to music. Enter the great ponderer Gabe Scalone. Existentialism is Gabe's pet subject and he and Ben delve deep into the musical landscape to find the best songs that ask these eternal questions. They may not find the answers but maybe that lies in the questioning.

The album format is where Progressive Rock shines. From it's heyday in the 1970's to today's modern masterpieces, Prog thrives in this mode almost exclusively. Where else can a band with progressive leanings write you a novel, or set an entire film or opera-sized idea to music? It's what they do. Adam Sears and The Fish of LA's premiere prog rock band Lobate Scarp are well steeped in the lore and legends of this mighty genre. So much so that they've taken over the show in this sprawling epic of an episode. Ben is relegated to moderator and the lunatics run the asylum in this super-sized episode dedicated to the bombast and the over-the-top ridiculousness that is progressive rock, in the form it should be appreciated in - the album.

Speaking of albums, Lobate Scarp is hard at work on their 2nd, and they need your help. They are seeking funding on Kickstarter with lots of great rewards. Find out more here:

To quote Bart Simpson quoting George Burns, "Show business is a hideous bitch goddess." There are a million stories about the trials and tribulations of navigating the entertainment industry, and the music business in particular. Naturally there are plenty of great songs analyzing what it means to be in the profession of making art for a living. Not all of it paints a pretty picture. Ben is joined by songwriter, musician, producer and non-stop-musical-force-of-nature Fernando Perdomo to break down these great songs that discuss contract disputes, crooked A&R reps, the art of selling out, fulfilling rock n roll dreams and becoming an overnight sensation. It truly is a long way to the top if you want to rock n roll, and these songs provide a cautionary tale. Do you have what it takes? Find out.

Fernando Perdomo's new solo album Voyeurs is on sale now. Find out more here:

To quote this week's guest Thad Wawro, rock n roll is the bastard child of a thousand fathers. When it burst onto the mainstream with the rise of Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Little Richard, Chuck Berry and Fats Domino, the year was 1956. It seemed to have sprung up overnight and much to the chagrin of the uptight parents of America, it was everywhere - dominating radio and in advertising. The kids had taken over. Little did they know, rock n roll had been incubating for a long time. The roots of this purely American art form pull from the rich soil of other American music - blues, r&b, country, rockabilly, and more. Ben and special guest, author Thad Wawro delve deep to find the songs that over time brought on the unholy birth of rock n roll, changing youth culture forever. The traditional Top Ten structure gets thrown out the window for this episode - this playlist is 33 songs long, and presented in chronological order, dating back decades to show the slow build that led up to 1956, which for our purposes is the year rock n roll broke through to the mainstream of pop culture. Get on your historian hat and travel back in time with us in this super-sized episode.
