    12th Class Results! A 2nd Beatles Song is in the Hall of Songs

    That's right: A second Beatles song joins "I Want to Hold Your Hand" in the Hall of Songs. But which is it? "Ticket to Ride"? "Yesterday"? "In My Life"? "Tomorrow Never Knows"? Plus, another artist gets its second Hall of Songs inductee, and Tim and Chris also discuss the newest version of Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

    1966 Hall of Songs Nominees: A Big Beach Boys Year, Plus the Stones, Supremes and Byrds

    It's the year of the album. 1966 is when the long player becomes the way to listen to music, and massive albums like "Pet Sounds," "Revolver" and "Blonde on Blonde" demonstrate that. Hall of Songs, though, isn't so concerned with the album, so what are the top 12 songs from this groundbreaking year of music? Join Tim and Chris as they reveal their dirty dozen, then head to hallofsongs.com to take part in voting for the greatest songs of all-time.

    A 32-Minute Bonus Episode About a 33-Minute Phish Song

    A 32-Minute Bonus Episode About a 33-Minute Phish Song

    Once again, Tim agrees to do something all in the name of Apple Podcasts reviews. Listen as this self-described anti-Phish person chronicles what it was like to listen to a 33:50 version of the band's song "Tweezer," which was recorded live at an Aug. 1, 2021, concert in Alpharetta, Georgia. Chris helps him along by describing what it's like to be a Phishhead. Along the way, many lessons are learned. (OK, very few lessons are learned.) Anyway, enjoy this bonus episode of Hall of Songs featuring a band who'll never be nominated for the Hall of Songs (Tim wrote this).

    1965 Hall of Songs Nominees: The Beatles, Folk Rock, More Motown, and Huge British Hits!

    What a year! 1965 is a year of incredible creativity throughout American and British music. We naturally hear from the Beatles a few times in this episode of Hall of Songs, but we also nominate some massive tracks from fellow Brits the Rolling Stones and the Who. Also, Motown raises the game once again, and Bob Dylan and others help usher in an entirely new genre.

    Listen, then vote for your Hall of Songs picks at our website, hallofsongs.com.
