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.”

  • Granada’s 14 Year Anniversary S... Yes, The Ghost has been short on words lately. I speak plenty through my Deep Ellum Radio show. The written word is where I’ve been lacking.

  • Monday Mixteen: 8/13/18 The Ghost debated on several different playlist themes for the week, but never had the time to fully develop one of those themes into a sixteen song playlist.
