The Ghost 101 Countdown of 2016: 80-71

So, if you missed it yesterday, The Ghost has started his year end countdown.  Unlike previous years, this is the first year that Texas songs (and “Sorta Texas” songs) are eligible to chart on the countdown.  Also, you’ve probably noticed that in past countdowns, I limit each artist to one song.  This year, I’m making one exception, allowing the artist with my #1 song of the year two songs on the countdown.  Who is that, you ask?  Like I’m gonna tell you.  You have to wait until New Year’s Eve to discover who holds the top spot.

If you need catching up on the countdown, click here to see #101-81.  Now, on with the countdown…

  1. One Red Martian, “Driving Song”
  2. Skinny Cooks, “Glitzkrieg”
  3. Bonnie Whitmore, “F**k With Sad Girls”
  4. Bronco Simmons, “Younger Days”
  5. Midnight County, “By My Side”
  6. The Gibbonses, “Tough as Nails”
  7. Ishi, “Classic Lips”
  8. Fea, “You Can’t Change Me”
  9. Mean Motor Scooter, “Such a Seducer”
  10. The Roomsounds, “Elm St.”

  • Monday Mixteen: 12/3/18 It’s that time of year when the days get shorter and shorter.  While the daylight hours may be lessening, the holiday season makes it feel more eventful and often stressful.  Simply put, there’s more to do with shorter days.  The Ghost understands that time is at a premium.  Today’s Monday Mixteen is the shortest one [...]
