The Weekly Top 5 Countdown: Whistle Songs

Welcome to the online aspect to the Top 5 Countdown. Admittedly, far less interesting than the on-air top-5segment; I must also say it is nonetheless as informative…if the data is what you’re after. The basic idea for the topic of whistle songs is perhaps a tribute to one of its most modern practitioners–Andrew Bird, who is coming to town for two nights this Friday and Saturday. And with the success of songs here from artists like Peter Bjorn & John and Mocky, we figured you all’d be game on it too. And I was right, lots of feedback. Many of your picks made the list, here is what Scott and I came up with…


Ennio Morricone “The Good The Bad and The Ugly Theme”


Peter Bjorn & John “Young Folks”


J. Geils Band “Centerfold”


Edward Sharpe “Home”


Andy Griffith “The Fishing Hole Song”
