Today’s reveal on the countdown will show songs #60-51. Instead of just displaying those ten songs, however, it seemed like a good time to do a full on recap. So here you go, #101 all the way to #51. That completes the bottom half of the countdown. Alright, so technically it’s a little less than half of the countdown. Look, I’m not going to institute song #50.5 just to satisfy the most compulsive math freaks out there. Just accept that this is the bottom half, and tomorrow will reveal songs #50-41. The Ghost will rest over the Christmas weekend, and will dive in to the Top 40 songs beginning on Monday.
