Monday Mixteen: 3/30/2020

Monday Mixteen 20200330

So, here’s my report on Day Eleventeen of self isolation, but at least I’m retaining my sanity, or at least that’s what the voices in my head are telling me.  All kidding aside, even though I’m adjusting to this new normal, I can’t say that I don’t miss the luxuries of going to work, going to shows, and for that matter, going outside to do more than get groceries.  Still, I believe these steps that we’re taking will greatly reduce the number of illnesses and deaths from COVID-19.

While The Ghost has always believed in the healing power of music, I feel it’s more critical than ever to have music in our lives.  It’s why I’m back on the blog, back on Deep Ellum Radio, and back making playlists.  Today’s Monday Mixteen (it is Monday, right?) is another one of my acrostic playlists.  If you look carefully, you’ll see a hidden message that I hope you are all heeding as much as humanly possible.

And on a lighter note, I’m ending the playlist with a song that might be my all time favorite song out of Dallas, and it just recently was made available on Spotify.  Hey, gotta find those silver linings on the clouds, right?

  11. “Placeholder”, Ryker Hall
  12. “Enjoy the Silence”, Itchy Richie and the Burning Sensations
  13. “Oxum”, Ley Line

  16. “Echo & the Pass”, Hendrick

  • Monday Mixteen: 7/5/21 Yeah, I just haven’t felt like writing much lately.  Guess you could say that I’ve been a man (or Ghost) of few words lately. So, I figured I’d just stay on that path of few words.  One word, to be exact.  Not a single song title here longer than a word.  And no words from [...]
  • Where The Ghost Will Be Tonight: 6/18... Have you ever noticed that on a musician’s birthday, they always want to play their music?  Forget a chance to just relax and enjoy performances by their friends and favorite acts.  Nope, most it seems would rather take the opportunity to be on stage themselves. Tonight is the birthday of Leah Lane, who will be [...]
  • Monday Mixteen: 4/5/21 Keepin’ it real.  I haven’t felt inspired to write lately.  I’ve had ideas after ideas for articles, playlist, etc. yet have lacked the motivation to post anything.  The Monday Mixteen I’m sharing below was supposed to be shared last week.  It was a review of sixteen of my favorite tracks released in the first quarter [...]
  • Monday Mixteen: 3/15/21 Normally during this week, many Dallasites would be making the trek down to Austin for SXSW week.  Yes, the festival is still happening, but only as an online event.  That means Austin likely has no packed hotels and motels, no ridiculous amount of traffic and foot traffic, and no venues with people packed in like [...]
