Okay, okay – so we’re a little late to the Tonys party. We recorded this one before the awards ceremony, but we knew that the tear-inducing “Dear Evan Hansen” would be the big winner of the night – and it was. So to celebrate, we invited one of our wives back on to help us rank the saddest songs ever to grace the Broadway stage. We’re sorry it took us a while to finally post it, but it’s our podcast and we can cry if we want to. Break out your box of tissues and let us know which Broadway tunes left you crying! Tell us in the comments section or tweet us at @rankophiles.
We’ve made it to 20 episodes, so it’s high time we introduce you to our better halves. Our lovely wives, Alison and Alison, join us for this episode as we dive back into the world of musical theatre and rank our top five favorite male-female duets from a musical. With marriage you can usually expect aggressive agreement, but not when it comes to ranking, and especially not when it comes to musical theatre. Four very different lists emerge, but even still there’s room for more suggestions. Let us know your favorites in the comments section or tweet us at @rankophiles.
It’s a “very special episode” of Rankophiles this week as we welcome our friends Justin and Krissy from one of our top five favorite podcasts, “So I Married a Movie Geek.” Michael celebrated his birthday just a couple weeks ago, so we thought we’d change it up a bit and make not one, not two, but FOUR different lists — we each rank our top five favorite movies from the year we were born. Justin ranks films from 1980, Bryan from 1981, Krissy from 1983, and Michael from 1984. That’s a lot of classic (and not so classic?) early 80s cinema. I guess we’re missing 1982 though, so share your favorite early 80s films with us in the comments section or tweet us at @rankophiles.
