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 five words in length.  I figure if you need your second hand to count the number of words, it’s a long title.

I also chose this theme since there are a number of lengthy Christmas songs that fit that criteria.  I mean, I suppose I should be helping y’all get into the holiday spirit and stuff.  Not that all quite fit that spirit (particularly the American Werewolf Academy song), but it’s a start.

  1. Reverend Horton Heat, “Santa Looked a Lot Like Daddy”
  2. Francine Thirteen, “Lust Heals, Give Me My Sin”
  3. Pretty Mary K, “If They Call Me a Country Boy”
  4. Matthew and the Arrogant Seam “The Distance Between You and Your Rattlesnake”
  5. Quiet Company, “All I Want for Christmas Is You”
  6. The Prof.Fuzz 63. “Three-Way Tie for Dog of the Year”
  7. LeRoyce (feat. Devy Stonez), “No Need to Think About It”
  8. Chris J Norwood, “There’s Always Someplace You’ve Never Been”
  9. Becky Middleton, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”
  10. The Unlikely Candidates, “Best Things in Life Aren’t Free”
  11. The Deathray Davies, “I Regret the Day I Tried to Steal Daniel’s Ego”
  12. The War Bonnets, “We Are All That Is Left”
  13. American Werewolf Academy, “Beauty & Youth Are Wasted on the Dead”
  14. David Ramirez, “People Call Who They Want To”
  15. Viva Maxitone, “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch”
  16. Ronnie Fauss, “I Think We’re Going to Be Okay”
