On December 4th 2011 a little podcast called All Time Top Ten With Ryan And Ben premiered to the world starring a couple of nobodies named Ryan Blake and Ben Eisen. The ensuing 5 years have featured 242 themes, 5213 songs, 76 different guest hosts and thousands of hours of inane chatter followed by sublime music. We're really proud of what we've accomplished over the course of 5 years. Even though Ryan Blake is now merely a guest host who pops in now and again, this show is still run by a bunch of nobodies. However, it has been a ton of fun and is showing no signs of slowing down. To the contrary, Season 6 promises to be action-packed with tons of new guests, topics and ridiculousness. Stay tuned!

In the meantime, enjoy this anniversary episode. Karaoke Classics Vol. 2 is pretty self-explanatory, but what's special here is we've brought in some of your favorite guest hosts - Jeff Axelrod, David Daskal, Shannon Hurley, Tony Ross, Ryan Blake, Summer Blake, Matt Dinan, Thad Wawro, Susan Atkinson, Ryan Stockstad, Gabe Scalone and Joe Lavelle. Recorded live at Max Karaoke Studios in West LA, CA, this hot mess of an episode is our little thanks to you all for listening and here's hoping for another 5 years!

Karaoke Classics Volume 1 is an episode to behold if you haven't beheld it yet. Find it here at our archive page:

The only higher form of flattery than imitation is a tribute song. Even the most non-egotistical amongst us would blush at the idea of someone writing a song about us. A tribute song to other musicians is an even greater way to show a fellow artist that you care, even if the song makes fun of said artist. That's what we're all about for the Season 5 finale of All Time Top Ten. Aussie pal Maurice Burzstynski joins via Skype all the way from Melbourne to count down the best songs that are all about real musicians. There's praise, there's scorn, there's ridicule and there's mourning a loss. Whatever was written, it's the thought that counts. See you all in Season 6!

Maurice is host/co-host of 2 amazing podcasts.

As All Time Top Ten's glorious Season 5 winds down, it's time for another installment of our favorite annual tradition. Sir Dustin Prince returns as our resident cover songs specialist and we knock out another list of the best songs that were reimagined, retooled, repurposed, rebuilt or brought to their true potential by artists that, in some cases, claimed rightful ownership of someone else's song by sheer force of their brilliance. There's not much else to say other than Enjoy.

It's the first weekend in November of leap year. In America that can only mean one thing - it's time to VOTE for a new President, as well as a vast majority of Congress, local leaders and an endless array of ballot initiatives set to do everything from paying for schools to legalizing marijuana. It's a great time to be alive, because we the people can truly make a difference this week, if we use our power. To get you in the mood, Ben and his illustrious co-host, filmmaker Ryan Stockstad have done what some thought impossible. They've found 20 worthy candidates to be elected Top Ten Modern Protest Songs. Believe it or not, since 1990 there have been some amazing protest songs, they just haven't all stormed the pop charts like the great ones from the 60's. You'll be surprised, engaged, enraged and motivated, in that order. Check out these tunes and then get out there and VOTE!

Ryan's web series Pop Culture Beast's Halloween Horror Picks is great food for the horror junkie who wants to extend Halloween year round. Watch 'em here and help out their Kickstarter:

Happy Halloween from your friendly ghosts at All Time Top Ten! As is tradition around here, our resident ghoul-in-training Matt Dinan has dropped by for yet another spooky season-appropriate episode. This year we're going after songs about true crimes, that is, crimes that actually happened. We've got songs about arson, rape, murder, cannibalism, robbery, kidnapping and some of the most inexplicably odd crimes ever committed. Great stories and great music make for a fun couple of hours of terror. Enjoy!

Matt Dinan's latest visual creation features a tale that didn't actually happen, but it does have a spaceship and a tickle-bot. Check out the music video for "Heartbeat On The Radio" by Numbers Girl herself Shannon Hurley on Funny Or Die:

There's no shame to it. Unless your name is Todd Rundgren, everybody needs a little backup. Whether you're a dynamic stage performer with pipes of gold, or a shy but talented singer/songwriter, a good backing band can make a career. These unsung heroes have sometimes been the catalyst that turns an ordinary artist into a legend. Where would Bob Marley have been without his beloved Wailers? Would Elvis Costello's formative punk years be as revered without the energy, versatility and talent of Steve Nieve, Bruce Thomas and Pete Thomas of the Attractions? Probably not. All the greats that ever put on a heart-stopping live show or delivered a mind-blowing studio album did it in part because of the ladies and gentlemen behind the scenes. Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumental genius Fuzzbee Morse joins All Time Top Ten for the first time to help pay tribute to the best backing bands the music world has ever heard.

If you're one of the uninitiated, Fuzzbee is a legend in his own right. His most recent album Dreams & Other Living Things features 3 members of rock n roll royalty as his amazing backing band. Find out more about the album and his astounding career at his website:

The term 'psychedelic' in regards to music can be defined in a number of different ways. It can be seen as the experimental, avant-garde, or colorful side of music. To put it another way, like our special guest, singer/songwriter/musician/producer Chris Price suggests, it's music that gives you the experience of what it's like to be on drugs. The psychedelic movement began with the rise of LSD in the mid 1960's, but it certainly doesn't end there. To this day there is great 'Psych' music being produced in many different styles from modern rock to hip hop. Ben and Chris explore the decades and genres for the best psychedelic music on the planet and in Top Ten Psychedelic Albums Volume 1 they set the stage for further listening and the limitless possibilities that lay in wait for eager musical explorers.

As always, Chris is extremely busy in the studio and on the stage. Find out more about his solo music and his very own psychedelic rock band Bebopalula at his website:

All Time Top Ten is a podcast for music geeks by music geeks, and for the life of us we can't think of a band that brings musicians and geekery together like Steely Dan. From the streets of collegiate New York came Donald Fagen and Walter Becker, a dynamic duo that took the musicianship and flair of great jazz and fused it with a rock edge. Add in a sardonic wit and deceptively dark subject matter, and you get one of the most unique musical acts of the past 40 years. Doing an episode on Steely Dan requires expertise, and since we're closet perfectionists at heart, it was imperative that ATTT's Steely Dan episode would be hosted by true fanatics of the band. First-time guests Erik Desiderio and Matt Ferguson fit the bill as big time Dan fans, and they run the show with their top ten lists, while Ben moderates. There are stories, bits of amazing trivia, and of course the stellar music from the geniuses that brought you jazz rock perfection. Listen and you'll become an instant fan.

Erik's work in the studio can be checked out at his website, and you can hire him as well!

Matt is working on the upcoming DVD release of the T.A.M.I Show, which is a must watch. Here's a special preview:

Every once in a while things get so out of hand that even the most strident non-button-pushers among us feel it’s their solemn duty to say something. For nearly 5 years, All Time Top Ten has prided itself on bringing you lists, laughs, stories, amazing music, and more lists. We’ve steered clear of political talk or specific political ideals, for the most part, because it’s supposed to be entertainment first and foremost. Well things have officially gotten out of hand. The U.S. Presidential election is nearly a month away and somehow the leader of the free world COULD be a hateful misogynist con-artist racist bully, who COULD literally destroy the world with his reckless ideas and actions. We here at ATTT can no longer stand idly by and watch it all go to hell without using our limited power for good. Ben is joined by fellow firebrands Mike and Vanessa Axelsen to lay out the case to dump Trump, and play some pretty kickass music in the process. Top Ten Songs For Donald Trump features songs about liars, con-artists, racists, bullies and megalomaniacs. We hope you don’t mind indulging us for one episode as we lay out the case against that hate-filled orange hot air balloon. Swing voters, protest voters, Trump voters and Hillary voters, take a listen. This is important stuff!!!

There are tons of places online to register to vote. Here’s one:

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/
