I feel kind of guilty for not providing more commentary on these lists. I’ll change that tomorrow… maybe. In the meantime, how about songs #80-71? You’d like that, wouldn’t you? Emily Bell, “Can’t Talk Back” Loafers, “Bobby” Brightwire, “Despite the Grey” Eye of the Storm Demo by Brightwire Ask for Joy, “Deep in the Night” […]

You know what the problem with Christmas songs is?  They have a limited shelf life.  Play a Christmas song in the middle of July, and you’ll get odd looks at best.  Christmas songs should be played no earlier than the day after Thanksgiving, and absolutely no later than New Year’s Eve.

Sometimes The Ghost wants to share music, but there’s not enough time to discuss the releases in as much detail as I’d like.  This new segment, the Mid-Week Music Dump, will appear during those times when I want to share music yet lack the time to write.  I’m keeping it simple, only songs and videos […]

Most of my Monday Mixteen posts as of late have held some sort of theme.  I’ll return to that at some point.  For now, The Ghost needed to just speak freely about his thoughts and some tunes that have been in my head and heart. Mother Tongues, “Jam of the Tongues” This band comes highly, […]
