Monday Mixteen: 8/24/2020

Monday Mixteen 20200824

While the anniversary of the blog happened at the beginning of the month, tomorrow is the actual birthday for the man behind The Ghost.  The usual celebrations involving live music and large crowds will obviously not occur this year.  That means I have to be the one to create the party, so to speak.  This is my best attempt to do just that.

If I were to create a soundtrack to this year’s birthday, it would sound like this Monday Mixteen.  These songs are by and large upbeat, and provide a nice auditory distraction for all the insanity going on the world.  Oh, and if you want do something special for my birthday, tune into tomorrow on the blog for some suggestions.

  1. Tayla Parx, “Dance Alone”
  2. The Bralettes, “Hagsville”
  3. Old 97’s, “Turn Off the TV”
  4. Nite, “Hurt No More”
  5. Royal Sons, “Shufflin’ Shoes”
  6. The 40 Acre Mule, “Make up Your Mind”
  7. Ishi, “Slowly But Surely”
  8. Karyna Micaela, “Just Love You”
  9. PRIZM, “Can’t Bring Me Down”
  10. Rosegarden Funeral Party, “Justification”
  11. Danielle Grubb, “Untitled”
  12. Def Rain, “Fade”
  13. Chilldren of Indigo, “Tomorrow Ain’t Promised”
  14. Mean Motor Scooter, “The Void”
  15. The Belle Sounds, “Until the Light Comes Up”
  16. Duell, “Unintentional”
