Monday Mixteen: 5/18/2020

Monday Mixteen 20200518

This past Saturday, former President Obama was the commencement speaker, so to speak, for the graduating Class of 2020.  It is certainly unorthodox to have a former President give a commencement speech to a nation of graduates.  These times, however, have been anything but orthodox.

So, continuing in that unorthodox vain, why not do a Monday Mixteen honoring this year’s graduates?  It’s another acrostic playlist, with my not-so-hidden message.

One other twist with this playlist: all the songs shared here were released within the school calendar year.  The Ghost will continue this theme on this week’s radio show, airing Wednesday night 7-9 PM CST on Deep Ellum Radio.  In the meantime, enjoy these sixteen songs from this year’s metaphorical graduating class of GOBL music.

  1. “When You Say My Name”, Rania Khoury
  2. “Ain’t Nothin’ New”, The Texas Gentlemen
  3. “You Are Freaking Out”, Clifffs
  4. “Trophy Wife”, Charlie J Memphis
  5. “One Way Street”, D and Chi
  6. “Gone”, Van Darien
  7. “Overcast and Under the Clouds”, Relick
  8. “Golden Hour”, The Belle Sounds
  9. “Reading Your Mind”, Nick Snyder & The Real Deal
  10. “Assassins”, Salim Nourallah
  11. “Detective Farmer Brown”, Hey Cowboy!
  12. “Underground Forever”, Jonathan Tyler
  13. “Another Sunrise”, Megan Storie
  14. “These Days”, Penny and Dime
  15. “East Texas Speed”, Ryker Hall
  16. “Slow Down”, Ley Line

So, this isn’t The Ghost.  This is the head barista from Coffeebreak Cafe, a new show on Deep Ellum Radio.  I found The Ghost’s password laying around, so I decided to take this opportunity to promote my radio show.  I’m sure some might say that this is “hacking into a website without permission”, but I [...]
  • Monday Mixteen: 8/3/2020 Perhaps you’ve seen #womensupportingwomen trending on both Facebook and Instagram.  The Ghost is obviously happy to see women opening show support to each other.  But what if you’re a man who wants to show support to women?  Or for that matter, a Ghost who supports women? When I saw the trending hashtag, I felt compelled [...]
  • Monday Mixteen: 7/27/2020 Alright, so the blog has been neglected as of late.  I’ve spent more time focusing on the Ghost of Blind Lemon Radio show, as well as the running of Deep Ellum Radio itself, than on writing or producing content for the blog.  Well, for the next month, I’m taking a break from recording new episodes [...]
  • Monday Mixteen: 5/4/2020 As this month began, Governor Abbott officially started the process of reopening the state.  Malls and restaurants are among the places that have been reopened, albeit with restrictions.  Personally, The Ghost recommends you follow the hidden advice within a previous playlist, but that’s just my two cents worth. Whether the restrictions remain lifted, or the [...]
