One of the Greatest Songs Ever Recorded: “True Heroes” by Eric Gnezda!!!

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!

My radio show, “Theme Attic,”  is on Wednesdays 2PM-4PM ET.

The show can be heard on WHFR 89.3 FM in the Dearborn-Detroit area of Michigan, or it can be streamed with this link:!

The Greatest Songs 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.

Here’s a link to have a look at “The Greatest Songs Ever Recorded”:! Occasionally, an “awesome song” crosses over to become a “Greatest Song!”

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!

I originally posted “True Heroes” by Singer/Songwriter Eric Gnezda when he released his latest version of it.

Since it had up to the minute significance, I couldn’t resist honoring the song that honored the true heroes in our life.

Originally written to honor those who helped the first responders and everyone who gave their lives on 9/11, it seemed only natural to expand its reach to include all front line workers who were blindly working to attack a disease that could be simultaneously attacking them.

On the twentieth anniversary of 9/11, this beautifully powerful ballad conveys its strongest feelings!

Eric Gnezda‘s best songs explode in your heart as you listen to them!

“True Heroes” is one of them!

It also features the amazing talents of Arkadiy Gips on violin, and Dave Powers on piano!

The song, for me, may now always have a dual meaning, but it won’t mind if the sentiment is honest!

One of the Greatest Songs Ever Recorded is “True Heroes” by Eric Gnezda!!!


I have plenty of other musical areas to explore:
