owhen heaven kissed earth

You know what the problem with Christmas songs is?  They have a limited shelf life.  Play a Christmas song in the middle of July, and you’ll get odd looks at best.  Christmas songs should be played no earlier than the day after Thanksgiving, and absolutely no later than New Year’s Eve. What if there was […]

Ten for Your Attention: 12/12/17

MNKR

The end of a year is traditionally a time when the number of good new releases starts to dwindle down.  It seems to The Ghost that 2017 still has some good music left in it. A certain amount of the good releases at the end of the year will be Christmas related songs; the first […]

Monday Mixteen: 12/11/17

Monday Mixteen 20171211

Lately, it seems The Ghost has been short on words.  That tradition is breaking today… sort of.  I still have no commentaries for these sixteen tracks, but I did spend more time than usual typing the titles.  You see, today’s theme is long song titles.  More to the point, the songs have to be over […]

Mid-Week Music Dump

Sometimes The Ghost wants to share music, but there’s not enough time to discuss the releases in as much detail as I’d like.  This new segment, the Mid-Week Music Dump, will appear during those times when I want to share music yet lack the time to write.  I’m keeping it simple, only songs and videos […]

Monday Mixteen: 12/3/17

Most of my Monday Mixteen posts as of late have held some sort of theme.  I’ll return to that at some point.  For now, The Ghost needed to just speak freely about his thoughts and some tunes that have been in my head and heart. Mother Tongues, “Jam of the Tongues” This band comes highly, […]

Often times, there are more awards to give out than time to give awards at a ceremony. Such is the case for The Ghosty Awards. Some of these you may have heard announced on KNON’s Tuesday Morning Blend show when I was a guest host. Others are just now being revealed. Here is the list […]

Monday Mixteen: 11/20/17

The Ghost almost never discusses music outside of the state of Texas.  Today, however, I will discuss a band that was a huge favorite of my teenage years, and still one of my all time favorite bands.  INXS were superstars of the 1980’s alternative rock movement, thanks to killer tracks like “The One Thing”, “What […]

Ten for Your Attention: 11/14/17

Monday came, and Monday went by with no Mixteen songs for my readers.  Consider these Ten songs as something of an apology.  I’m listing the tracks in alphabetical order by artist just because I didn’t feel like agonizing over how to arrange these tracks.  This is by no means a comprehensive list of new releases, […]

Ghosty Hip-Hop Insights from a Soccer...

The Ghost decided it would be a good idea to an expert opinion here are there about the selections for this year’s Ghosty Awards.  One category I felt it would be particularly useful to get an outside perspective is for the category of Hip-Hop/Rap.  I knew that for this category, there was only one appropriate […]
