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”

  16. Pedigo’s Magic Pilsner, “Counting Back Down (to Next Christmas Time)”

  • Monday Mixteen: 7/22/19 Politics are an area that I’ve always been reluctant to discuss on the blog.  After all, this is a music blog, not a political one.  With the level of vitriol being spread in our country right now, however, I feel that I cannot continue to stay silent.  The level of racism and hate being spouted [...]
  • Monday Mixteen: 7/1/19 So you all know that July 4th is Independence Day, which marks the anniversary of the U.S. declaring itself its own country.  I bet you didn’t know, however, that July 4th is National Country Music Day.  It seems appropriate, as I’m not sure there’s a musical style that’s as distinctively American is Country.  In honor [...]
