Monday Mixteen: 12/24/2018

Monday Mixteen Template 20181224

It’s that most wonderful time of the season.  It’s when we get to find out who’s been naughty, and who’s been nice.  It’s a time of gift-giving, and of spreading goodwill to your neighbor.  That’s right; it’s time to celebrate the upcoming Ghost’s Top 101 Songs of 2018.  But you knew that’s what I was talking about, right?

The countdown begins this Wednesday, with songs #101-71 being revealed.  Tracks #70-51 are announced the following day, and #50-41 being announced Friday.  Then Sunday night, starting at 3 PM CST, The Ghost will count down his Top 40 songs of the year, Casey Kasem style.

The tracks that are shared in this playlist are the songs that didn’t make the countdown.  Some fell a little short, while other tracks are from artists that made the cut with different songs.  Oh, and there are a few Christmas tracks thrown in as well.  Because, you know, ’tis the season and all.

  1. Old 97’s, “Christmas Is Coming”
  2. Calliope Musicals, “Cosmic Poison Arrow”
  3. Hello Shannon, “Still the World”
  4. Brian Lambert, “All I Want for Christmas is a Brand New Start”
  5. Sleepspent, “California”
  6. The Gibbonses, “Easier”
  7. Quiet Company, “Merry Christmas, the President Is Terrible”
  8. Frankie Leonie, “Taking All the Good out of the Bye”
  9. Xuan, “Big Blue Ocean”
  10. Svenny Baby!, “Broken Disco”
  11. Charley Crockett, “Bright Lights Big City”
  12. Northern National, “I’ll Be Home for Christmas”
  13. Rosegarden Funeral Party, “Another Dead Soul”
  14. Jack Barksdale, “Revival Song, No. 1”
  15. Shinyribs, “Please Come Home for Christmas”
  16. Pedigo’s Magic Pilsner, “Counting Back Down (to Next Christmas Time)”

  • Monday Mixteen: 1/21/19 To celebrate the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday today, I felt it should be something that was incorporated in today’s Monday Mixteen.  The Ghost’s first instinct was to do another acrostic playlist, with the song titles spelling out his name (minus the Jr. part).  While I kept with that theme, I felt it was not [...]
  • Monday Mixteen: 1/14/19 You may notice that the songs in the below playlist are in the alternating order of the letters S & M. Yes, The Ghost realizes that this theme may be rather controversial. I could have easily shied away from it, but it seems pointless to try to hide one’s deepest desires. Several readers will find [...]
  • Monday Mixteen: 1/7/2019 Happy new year to all my GOBL readers.  It’s time for the first Monday Mixteen of 2019.  It feels like it should be an opportunity to explore the future of new music.  I learned, however, that January 7th is Old Rock Day.  It only seems appropriate that we examine some old rock.  The term old [...]
