All Time Top Ten - Episode 83 - Top Ten Secret Songwriters w/Alex Chandler

Some of the greatest songs ever recorded were written by unknowns. Some were written by the recording artists who made them famous. This week's podcast is all about that elusive third category - a famous song recorded by a famous artist with a famous writer, but the writer and recording artist are not the same. For our purposes, a "secret songwriter" is a writer who is famous in their own 'write', but these particular songs were either written specifically for someone else, or the cover version of the song just happens to be the one that everyone reveres. Good friend and fellow music maniac Alex Chandler joins Ben for a podcast breaking down the stories behind these songs, and how they came to be beloved by the world, even though the author is hiding in the shadows. Join us, won't you?
