Encore Episode: Hallelujah! The Songs We Should Retire

All Songs Considered

Hosts Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton are joined by NPR Music's Stephen Thompson in this encore presentation of 'Songs We Should Retire.' Each picked a handful of classic and more recent tunes to debate longevity and overstayed welcomes in modern music history. Should "American Pie" be put out to pasture? Has John Lennon's "Imagine" been imagined one too many times? Does Pharrell's "Happy" still make us happy, or should we, as Stephen suggests, cryogenically freeze it so we never have to hear it again in our lifetimes?
