Full disclosure, we taped this episode of All Time Top Ten more than 3 weeks ago. We were thinking at the time that we'd hit on some sort of cultural touchstone moment. We were hopeful that by the time this podcast came out some of the issues dominating the headlines at the time - disturbing stories of sexual assault and men in power abusing that power - would have resolved themselves in some way. In many ways we were hoping this podcast would have seemed a bit dated by now. Not so much. American culture is at a weird crossroads at the moment and the question is simple - do we want to progress as a society or go backwards? Nobody knows where this thing is headed but we can tell you with confidence that the All Time Top Ten podcast and this week's esteemed guests Vanessa Narad Axelsen and Candi Bartlett are firmly all in on the side of progress. Now is the time for the greatest feminist anthems of all time to be heard and that's what we're all about in this week's episode. Vanessa and Candi bring the fire and the fury with their top ten list and Ben attempts to keep up. We encourage everyone to share this with every woman or girl they know that feels they need a shot of confidence and hope. The women behind these songs knew they were on the right side of history, and that the battle is never over.

Vanessa and Candi are busy putting together a new podcast called Chacharone, appearing soon in an iTunes near you. Follow them on Instagram for updates:

Raising children with high levels of empathy, compassion and elevated social consciousness is difficult in today's insane world. There are mountains of misinformation and evil ideas running rampant in 2017 and now more than ever we can and should look to the arts for the truth. Music has magical properties and it's not surprising kids gravitate towards it as a way to bond with others, expand their minds and generate positivity in the universe. Like anything else, how much they get out of it depends on what music they're getting into. Enter Nyaze and Mel of the fabulous Woke With Kids podcast, a weekly dissection of everything politics and pop culture, seen through the lens of two intelligent humans who are striving for more understanding for themselves and their young children. ATTT is proud to welcome them back for a lively discussion about what songs and artists we can look to in order to bring up proud, smart kids with killer taste in music.

For insight and perspective, we highly recommend subscribing to Woke With Kids. Find out more here:

Star Wars or Star Trek? Friends or Seinfeld? Great taste or less filling? Some of the great debates of our time will never be fully resolved. Add this one to the pantheon. Both U2 and R.E.M. can boast longevity - U2 is 41 years and running and R.E.M.'s existence spanned a mere 31 years, but they put out more albums in that time than U2 has in their history. Both were at one point the biggest band in the world, although it was clear one of the two always wanted to be and the other was more reluctant. Both are comprised of 4 fantastic musicians, with dynamic and unique frontmen. Both have been at the forefront of political and social altruism and both can claim themselves as Champions of Serious Rock. Either way ATTT is #blessed to have possibly the world's biggest U2 fan in Josh Covitt squaring off against Athens, GA native and R.E.M. megafan Dan Ewen in studio to each make their case in our latest installment of Point/Counterpoint. Things get heated but also hilarious as these two superfans (and secret best buddies) lay the smack down. We also hear 20 of the best tunes from these two amazing and incredibly worthy bands. Let the battle begin.

As full-time comedians, actors and writers, both Josh and Dan have a million things happening in the world of Hollywood. Find out more by finding them on the Twitters:

On the first Friday of every month, we here at ATTT are putting out an episode from seasons past as a monthly bonus for those who want to delve further into the back catalog. We'll be keeping these episodes up for the entire month so check it out. This November everybody's in a mood, and with the country and the world careening towards who the hell knows what, we figured it's time for a good laugh or three. Here's one from back in 2014 that featured 30 tunes from the greatest comedy show ever made.

For more than 25 years, America's favorite family has graced our televisions with some of the funniest moments in TV history. You may not have given it much thought, but The Simpsons is also home to some of the best music and musical moments ever put on the boob tube. We here at ATTT are gigantic fans of the residents of Springfield and since this is a music show, it was only fitting to highlight the best of the dozens of hilarious songs featured on The Simpsons. Ben is joined by fellow Simpsons fanatics Nick Baker and Dustin Prince. Prepare to bust a gut and sing along. Who puts the spring in Springfield? We do!

Happy Halloween from your spooky pals at All Time Top Ten! In what should be a shock to no one, our resident Halloween ghoul-in-chief Matt Dinan is back for another round of songs to creep you out, terrify you and/or get you in the mood for the greatest holiday known to mankind. This time around Matt and Ben are focusing on Dark Cover Songs. These seemingly innocent songs have a secret - they're actually pure evil - and with a little coloring and shade, and dark morbid inspiration, they can be turned into something sinister right before your very ears. All the greats you expect to hear are represented plus a few lesser known gems dug up from the vaults. Believe us, it was dark and scary down there. Anyway, we hope this playlist will add an extra bit of delightful misery to your Halloween. Enjoy, if you dare.

The art of putting lyrics together with music is something we should never take for granted. Sometimes it takes a team, partners in crime who only want to serve the gods of music and perfect their craft, leaving us mere mortals with a treasure trove of great songs that can never be un-written. The dynamic duo of Burt Bacharach and Hal David are among the very best of all time, and the sheer number of undeniable hits they wrote combined with an endless array of musical styles their songs are featured in creates one of the best playlists this here podcast has ever had the pleasure to present. Add in 2 of our favorite guests - the hilarious Joe Lavelle and the always charming Shannon Hurley, who each bring top ten lists to be played alongside Ben's ten, and you have a super-sized 30-track epic look at the songs and life of Burt Bacharach and Hal David, sung by some of the greatest vocalists in pop history. We're so not even close to worthy.

Joe's pet project Joe Lavelle's Brandy Sidecar features modern songs arranged in the style of the old standards from yesteryear. Check out some of his fine tunes at https://store.cdbaby.com/cd/joelavellesbrandysidecar

Shannon's new album New Day is available everywhere. It and the rest of Shannon's extensive discography can be explored at http://shannonhurley.com

In these troubled times, there are very few things that can bring joy to people all over the world. Right up there at the top along with a good meal, a quality shoulder rub and a solid 8 hours of sleep is the act of playing a musical instrument or singing your guts out. The moment you pick up a guitar and strum a chord, the second you start banging away on a drum, and the instant you raise your voice to sing, you're experiencing one of the most crucial elements to living - pure unadulterated joy. Who better to bring in to GoodList Studios to discuss songs that describe this feeling than the incomparable Fuzzbee Morse, the man who can play almost any instrument and sing just like a bird. We need music now more than ever and the joy of making it is just as powerful as the joy of listening to it. Here's a whole mess of songs all about that feeling.

Fuzzbee is hard at work on a new album. In the meantime you can pick up the stellar record Dreams And Other Living Things here:

Some words from the great Marvin Gaye will help explain how we hope you'll receive this week's podcast: "Have your sex, it can be very exciting, if you're lucky. I hope the music I present here makes you lucky." Pioneered by legends like Marvin, Isaac and Barry, and taken to new levels by their predecessors through the years, the classic baby-making slow jam is a thing of beauty when done up right; featuring tasteful, lush arrangements, smooth grooves and over-the-top sexy vocals and lyrics. So you know, the word 'classic' denotes pre-1990 for our intents and purposes. Naturally, The Old Boy Himself Ryan Blake is in studio to help count down the best of #SexyTimeMusic and things get hot and heavy quickly. Turn off the lights, light a candle and groove with us.

In a very concentrated era of history in a very localized spot on the globe, something strange and wonderful happened. In the late 1970's and early 1980's, the UK was swept up in a craze - a dance craze if you will - where the ska and reggae music being played by Jamaican immigrants mixed with rock music's latest obsession - punk. The resulting musical stew blended the best of reggae, ska, dance hall, dub and rock and brought people from different races, colors and genders together. In this short-lived moment in music history, legendary bands like Madness, The Specials and The (English) Beat put out some of the best socially conscious yet infectiously fun songs of all time. Ben is joined in GoodList Studios by a fella who has played with many of the artists featured in this episode, and has endless stories and insight into what was a phenomenon that faded from the spotlight almost as quickly as it entered it. Rick helps count down the best songs from that all-too-brief era. Play it, selector!

From its origins as a legitimate art form 50+ years ago to today, the album format is considered sacred by music fanatics around the world. The elusive All-Killer-No-Filler album is holy scripture to be studied and celebrated. What we mean by AKNF is a great album from beginning to end. There's not one track on it you'd want to skip - gold from start to finish. A perfect piece of pop mastery, on a 12 inch platter of vinyl. Longtime Pal Of The Podcast Dustin Prince is back to help count down the first volume of these musical treasures, with surely many more volumes to come.
