The Monday Mixteen: 8/17/20

Monday Mixteen 20200817

Anyone can make a playlist.  Even any hack can make a Monday Mixteen playlist, as that jerk from Coffeebreak Cafe proved last week.  It takes real talent, however, to make The Monday Mixteen.  Only The Ghost has The Skills to pay The Bills, so to speak.  I’ve brought back a concept I used a few years back, featuring songs whose first word is “The.”  From there, I knew I wanted to start with The Best, and after that would be The Rest.  Then after that, well, I guess it’s the rest after The Rest.  So enjoy The songs here, presented by The Ghost.

  1. “The Best”, Cryptolog
  2. “The Rest”, Foxtales
  3. “The Driver IS the Traffic”, Corner Suns
  4. “The Paleontologist”, Amanda Pascali
  5. “The One”, Jessie Frye
  6. “The Message”, Cut Throat Finches
  7. “The Mime”, Danielle Grubb
  8. “The Old Ones”, Bomethius
  9. “The Void”, Mean Motor Scooter
  10. “The Dropouts”, Old 97’s
  11. “The Sparrow Spooked the Crow”, Dove Hunter
  12. “The Man That Time Forgot”, Charley Crockett
  13. “The Kind of Love”, Somogyi
  14. “The Vine”, Ronnie Heart
  15. “The Natives”, Vandoliers
  16. “The Hammer”, Michael Witt

Oh, and as for that Coffeebreak Cafe, two can play at the hacking game.
