One of the Greatest Songs Ever Recorded: “Falling” by Joanie Leeds and The Nightlights!!!

For as long as I’ve been on the radio, and definitely for as long as I’ve been writing a blog, I will occasionally make a reference to a song being “One of the Greatest Songs Ever Recorded!” (GSER)

I would usually follow that by saying that I would eventually start a category for it, but then never get around to it.

Well, now I’m getting around to it!

It will pretty much follow the pattern of The Most Awesomest Song of the Day.

I’ll select a song to celebrate and then give my thoughts about it. Nothing really brand new here that hasn’t been done before. But since I have a website, I can collect them and lay out what my own greatest songs are.

My radio show, “Prime Time Theme Attic,”  is on Monday nights 8PM-10PM ET but is on hiatus because of the pandemic.

Here’s the link for when the show returns: )

Even though I always emphasize new music and artists, it’s always fun to take a short drive through the legendary artists, since they influenced those other artists!

But a song doesn’t have to be old or done by a legendary Theme Attic Hall of Fame member to be thus honored.

I can think of several songs that are only a few years old or less that I could identify as One of the Greatest Songs Ever Recorded.

This will be fun, and hopefully you will join me on my journey…at least sometimes!


Well, I guess it’s time to post today’s song.

I had to turn the heat on for one day this week. It was just too cold in the house without it.

The leaves have already changed colors, and I have started to rake them up.

Those are just a couple of reasons why I hate Autumn.

However, that also means it’s time to start listening to “Falling” by Joanie Leeds and the Nightlights from their Bandwagon” album!

Starting from the time the leaves start floating haphazardly to the ground, I’ve always played the song every week until the trees are bare.

“Falling” makes me feel good about Autumn–which is a monumental task for how much I dislike the season!

From the moment Joanie starts strumming her ukulele, and the shaker accompanies it, I’m floating like those leaves in the song!

Such a happy melody with joyous harmonies!

And that singalong chorus always sticks with me for awhile!

The glockenspiel provides a perfect light touch!

“Falling” was picked as my Best Song of 2013, the year prior to the official start of the Philbys!

Since then, Joanie Leeds has won several more Philbys!

“Falling” is also one of my favorite songs!

It’s right up there with The Beatles, Bruce, and all the rest!

I love this song!
