Two songs have been inducted into the Hall of Songs after our ninth round of voting, putting the grand total at 17.
One of those tracks is Bob Dylan’s seminal 1963 recording “Blowin’ in the Wind.” What’s the other inductee? Was it a Motown song? Did the Beatles get in? What about the Beach Boys? The Wall of Sound? Or did Bobby Darin finally break through?
Okay. Don’t scroll if you want to be spoiled.
