It’s that time of year again!

Time for you to nominate and vote for your favorite covers, and for me to spend the last few shows of the year to line them up in order and play them for you! As with previous years, we have a few Hall of Fame songs that have been so popular in the past that we can’t allow them to be in the countdown any more. So we move those into a Hall Of Fame, and induct new members every year.

This year’s new inductees are:
“Village Green Preservation Society” – Kate Rusby
“All Along The Watchtower” – BT4 (from Battlestar Galactica)

Joining our previous inductees:

  • Common People – William Shatner
  • Baby Got Back – Jonathan Coulton
  • In Between Days – Ben Folds
  • Lithium – Polyphonic Spree
  • Straight Outa Compton – Nina Gordon
  • I Will Survive – Cake
  • Hurt – Johnny Cash
  • Wonderwall – Ryan Adams
  • Comfortably Numb – Scissor Sisters
  • Hallelujah – Jeff Buckley
  • Don’t Stop Believin’ – Petra Haden
  • Billie Jean – Chris Cornell
  • Redemption Song – Johnny Cash & Joe Strummer
  • Somewhere Over The Rainbow – Israel Kamakawiwa’ole
  • Gin & Juice – The Gourds

Tomorrow’s all-request show will welcome the new inductees into the Hall. But now is the time to start nominating songs for this year! Visit and nominate your favorite covers of all time. Feel free to use the form multiple times to nominate up to 5 of your favorites, if you like! You have until December 10 to nominate your favorites, since voting will begin shortly afterwards.
