Music geeks on a mission.
Episode 132 - Top Ten Songs Of 2002 w/Chad Grenawalt
August 29, 2014 09:07 AM PDT
Just after the dawn of the new millennium, the music business was changing rapidly. The term MP3 was starting to become more than just a nuisance to record labels, album sales were dropping and a revolutionary platform called Itunes was just around the corner. Even though the pop charts were mostly filled with candy-coated drivel at the time, there was still a ton of great music to be heard, even if you had to go digging for some of it. 2002 was a magical year for music in many ways, and Ben is joined by music fanatic Chad Grenawalt to break down this impressive year. From hip hop to indie rock, there were plenty of diamonds in the rough, and Ben and Chad count down the best of the best.

The great David Daskal returns to GoodList Studios for a podcast about that moment that some of us dread just as much as some of us live for - waking up. Even if you don't actually 'get up', waking up is something most (living) people are pretty good at, and everyone has their own way to enjoy the moment. Whether you need to get pumped up for a crazy day or just a gentle nudge on those lazy days, there's a song for any occasion and Ben & David bring their glorious top ten lists and count down the greatest songs to get you going.
David can be seen fronting the excellent Eagles tribute band Best Of My Love, playing all over Southern California. Check em out here: https://www.facebook.com/BestOfMyLoveEaglesTribute

To hear them is to love them is to lose IQ points is to not care. Combining rudimentary chord changes with lyrics a 5 year-old could have written, some of the greatest songs in rock and pop history are so exquisitely dumb that they're brilliant. However, there is a very fine line between good dumb and bad dumb. Ben and his guest, the not-so-dumb Amy Wohlitz know how to tiptoe around that line and bring you the first volume of these brainless wonders. There were so many that had to be left off, it's looking like this is the beginning of another Dumb Annual Tradition for All Time Top Ten. Look for more volumes in the future, but for now, let's get TOTALLY DUMB.Episode 128 - Top Ten Songs For Single People - Gabe Scalone VS Diane Stroud
July 18, 2014 10:03 AM PDT
Being single has specific joys and VERY specific pains that go along with the experience. It's safe to say we've all been there. This week's topic is all about those songs that exquisitely know the feelings that go along with the ups and downs of the single life. Ben is joined in GoodList Studios by Gabe Scalone and Diane Stroud, who both know a thing or two about it. Ben hasn't been single for a long time so he's content to step back and moderate the proceedings this time around. Diane and Gabe bring you their top ten lists and needless to say some great tunes are spun. Dig!

The story of Wilco is one of the underdog. From humble beginnings in Middle-Of-Nowhere, America, Jeff Tweedy had a hand in helping create a musical genre that endures and expands even in 2014. Call it alt-country, call it Americana, roots music, call it what you like, Tweedy's collaboration with Jay Farrar in Uncle Tupelo was as groundbreaking and about as influential as anything to hit the scene in the past 25 years. Wilco was formed from the ashes of that great band, and went on to become one of the most celebrated and innovative creative forces in rock. With his stellar backing band with a rotating cast of colorful characters, Tweedy has created in Wilco a completely unique band with it's own sound and 10 albums of pure sonic gold. Ben is joined via Skype all the way from Melbourne, Australia by fellow Wilco-head Maurice Bursztynski to tell their story and play 20 of their greatest tunes.Episode 126 - Top Ten Hip Hop Songs Of The 90's - Dan Ewen VS Aaron Cohen
July 04, 2014 10:11 AM PDT
Whether you're old school or new school, everyone knows that the sweet spot, that golden era, the heyday of hip hop is the 1990's. It's when the genre not only took over the world, but proved itself to be a viable art form, when innovative sonic experimentation was the norm and lyrics were pure street poetry. Ben is not an expert in the genre so he brought in two of the world's most outspoken and hilarious proponents of all things hip hop, Dan Ewen and Aaron Cohen. Ben moderates while these two titans battle it out to bring you the greatest tracks ever made during the greatest decade of hip hop. WARNING - EXPLICITNESS!
Dan Ewen can be found spitting out hilarious truths and non-sequiturs on Twitter at https://twitter.com/VaguelyFunnyDan
Aaron Cohen can be spotted at his place Cacao Coffee House in West Los Angeles. More details here: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Cacao-Coffee-House/148201341874934Episode 125 - Top Ten Girl Groups w/Joe Lavelle
June 27, 2014 09:10 AM PDT
In what could very well be one of the most controversial episodes yet, Ben and special guest Joe Lavelle have a deep discussion not only about who are the greatest Girl Groups in rock and pop history, but also the very question of what constitutes a Girl Group. Though Ben and Joe have their disagreements, there's a ton of great music heard in this episode and some of the best women in music are highlighted. Dig!Episode 124 - Top Ten Socially Conscious Songs Volume 1 w/Chris Wolffing
June 20, 2014 09:10 AM PDT
As a society we should always be trying to improve the way we treat each other and our planet. As individuals, we should be doing the same for our own minds. The world is full of problems, and sometimes thinking or talking about it is not enough. You have to SING about it! Ben is joined via Skype by fellow socially conscious individual Chris Wolffing to bring you the first volume of these songs that not only have a message, they have conviction. Oh, and a kick ass guitar riff or funky groove always helps the medicine go down. Let's get preachy!

It's not just a cliche to say that the rhythm section is the backbone of a band. It's the damn truth. When a great bass player and a great drummer are locked in and in a groove, something approaching musical alchemy happens. It's not a coincidence that some of the most revered bands in rock history boasted a TIGHT rhythm section. Ben is joined in GoodList Studios by one of the show's beloved regulars, Dustin Prince. Ben is a bass player and Dustin is a drummer, and having been in several bands together, they know what it takes to form a world-class rhythm section. Behold the best of the best.
