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.
