Warning! The following episode should be heard in good headphones, or at least in a place where there's not a lot of noise. Some of these recording mistakes are so buried in the mix that you have to strain to hear them, but that's part of the fun. Anyway, back in the days of analog tape and hectic recording schedules on low budgets, recording mistakes were bound to happen. Make no mistake, this is something to celebrate. Songwriter, singer, guitarist and the menschiest mensch of all mensches Geoff Pearlman joins the podcast for a delightful romp through some of the most ridiculous audio oddities ever put out to an unwitting public. Some mistakes are happy accidents, some are ugly as sin, all are moments captured on tape of humans being human, in the best way possible.

Geoff's new album, Lost In The Satellites is ready to be heard. Find out more:

The Fab Four will stand the test of time as the greatest rock n roll band in music history. How did they get to the 'toppamost of the popamost'? With lots of help. This week's episode features special guest, proprietor of The Beatles Room in swinging Las Vegas, and wearer of the the crown for Nevada's #1 Beatles Fan, the one and only Barry Clayton. Barry joins the pod for a lively conversation about the various folks in the Beatles orbit that kept the train going with help behind the scenes in the studio - in front of and behind the glass, and others whose mere presence inspired John, Paul, George and Ringo to reach musical heights never experienced before or since. TOP TEN FIFTH BEATLES gets to the working guts of the group, in which every member of the team did their part and got the lads to a place where they could write and record the music that will be studied and revered 500 years from now as the pinnacle of popular music.

Camus can do, but Sartre is smarter. If you thought this statement was humorous you are clearly either a Simpsons fanatic with an affinity for the golden years, or a stone cold philosopher. Either way, you will likely be a fan of Top Ten Existential Songs Volume 4, with the wise Gabe Scalone, back for one last time on the Skype Machine (hey it took some doing but we got it sounding good) before he starts making his way back to LA for the sole purpose of doing episodes of All Time Top Ten in person. Anyway, the following is another installment of our favorite songs about life, death, the meaning of life and that pesky question, who are we and why are we here.

Happy Halloween from your morbid pals at All Time Top Ten! Mr. Halloween Himself Matt Dinan is back to horrify you with songs that pay tribute to - or give grave warnings about - some of the greatest monsters in film and literary history, plus some new ones that can go toe to toe with any beast that HP Lovecraft could have ever conjured up in his wildest twisted fantasies. Top Ten Songs About (Fictional) Monsters is all about variety too. We got demons, werewolves, vampires, witches, Freddies and Jasons, not to mention things that should not even be. In the end, it's all about creating a horror-tastic playlist to help you celebrate another year of evil. MUHUHUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Matt's latest project was directing and editing the new music video from Lovers & Poets featuring yours truly along with Numbers Girl Shannon Hurley. Check out "Sugar High":

Matt's film After The Flesh has been getting nationwide notice at festivals. Here's a trailer:

Unless you're one of those who ride or die exclusively with Norwegian black metal, there's a good chance that at least half of the tunes you know and love feature some kind of percussion instrument in the mix. These underrated and invaluable instruments provide color, life, drive, dynamics, motion and/or flair to make your favorite song as great as it is. Imagine "September" by Earth Wind & Fire without that driving bongo track. Imagine "Hair Of The Dog" without that immortal cowbell. As legendary producer Bruce Dickinson can attest, it can make or break a legendary recording. New Pal O' The Pod and percussion wizard Alex LaBorwit knows a thing or two about the artistry of laying down an incredible tambourine, conga, maraca, timpani and triangle, and is happy to demonstrate some of these instruments for us in his home studio. Top Ten Percussion Instruments breaks down what makes these essential musical tools so awesome, and we spin some amazing tunes to get you shakin' your booty and learning to appreciate the majesty of percussion.

Long before the Brill Building, Tin Pan Alley ruled the pop charts and the streets of Broadway. This era's amazing collection of songs has been given a very dignified and fitting moniker - the Great American Songbook. The writers of the timeless tunes that grace this beloved book are some of the most legendary artists in American history, and the very souls that gave America its first ever contribution to world culture in the first half of the 20th Century. Fellow Music-Historian-In-Training Joe Lavelle returns for a third volume of these undeniably timeless songs, and we pay tribute to the writers that made it all possible by playing versions of these songs performed by some of the greats from the past and relative present. Get your historian hat on and join us.

Stream this playlist on Spotify. In fact, stream the entire Great American Songbook playlist, featuring the songs played in Volumes 1-3 here:

How do! All Time Top Ten's Brit Month is wrapping up in style with an overview of the best UK rock bands of the past 20 years. Those rockin' Brits have come a long way since Beatlemania blew things wide open 55 years ago. The bands of the past 2 decades feel like a culmination of everything we've heard all month long - great pop songwriting, moody introspection, tongue in cheek... uh cheekiness, and the sound of shimmering guitars over a mighty backbeat. Make no mistake, rock n roll isn't dead, we just need to be reminded of how awesome it can be and science has proven that it's human nature to want to rock out like a maniac from time to time. Hopefully, with the help of singer-songwriter, and mensch-in-chief Brandon Schott, we can help you get that primal release out by playing tunes from the best rock the Brits have had to offer so far this century.

As always, Brandon is hard at work on more music, but in the meantime you can listen to his latest releases here:

ATTT's highly fashionable series Brit Month keeps on keeping on with a fascinating look at the bands that made the UK rock scene in the 90s. As we all know, the 90s brought the age of irony to an entire generation, and the Brits were more than receptive to it. There might have been "better" decades in British rock, but there was definitely no "cooler" decade than the 90s. All over England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, bands took the best of what came before - pop, rock, electronic, shoe gaze, "alternative" which really means "new wave", and more to inform a vibrant scene that was everywhere, from Top Of The Pops to the British tabloids. It was a moment in time, punctuated by great bands and great music and we're proud to welcome back the one and only Chrissy Olsen to help count down our favorites.

As Britain's Parliament goes through another week of pantsing themselves while giving themselves atomic wedgies, we here at ATTT are DETERMINED to cheer them up by reminding the world of just how rich their rock n roll history truly is. That's why we invented Brit Month, a semi-comprehensive look at the best UK rock n roll bands by decade. The 80s is where things got wonky, and styles of rock ran as far away from each other as possible, making for an incomprehensible stew of new wave, punk, post punk, metal, hair metal, new romantic, synth pop and MTV-ready arena rock & pop. In town from his teaching gig in China to say Ni Hao is beloved Pal O' The Pod Jeff Axelrod. We take a long (sorry possibly too long) and loving look at the greatest UK rock bands of the decade that went from big shoulder pads to big hair, but kept rock alive for another glorious ten years.

Xie Xie (thanks) to Jeff for dropping by while on a break from his main gig teaching English in China. Find out more at his blog:
