Monday Mixteen 20180107

Happy new year to all my GOBL readers.  It’s time for the first Monday Mixteen of 2019.  It feels like it should be an opportunity to explore the future of new music.  I learned, however, that January 7th is Old Rock Day.  It only seems appropriate that we examine some old rock.  The term old […]

Now that The Top 101 of 2018 has been counted down, it might seem that The Ghost’s job is done for the year.  The truth is that there are still some loose ends to tie up.  While I think I’ve done a decent job at keeping you updated about local and Texas music, there are […]

The Ghost's Top 101 of 2018

The Spotify playlist here only features 99 of the tracks.  Thanks a lot, Starside R&D and Emmeline for being the rebels that had to not place your songs on Spotify.  Well, here are the 99 artists that have their music on Spotify.  If you feel so compelled, I provided players for both of the artists […]

So, we’ve gone through #101-71, #70-51, and #50-41 on the year end countdown.  All that remains is the Top 40 songs of the year, which shall be revealed Sunday afternoon on Deep Ellum Radio, starting at 3 PM CST.  But I’ll bet some of you are wondering which artists will make the Top 40.  Well, […]

Ghost Top 50

Now that we’ve made it into the Top 50, I suppose The Ghost should add a little commentary for each track.  Fine, I can do that, especially since I only have to do that for ten songs.  Yes, it’s an unusually short playlist today.  That’s because I’ve saved the remaining Top 40 for Sunday afternoon.  […]

GOBL Top 101 of 2018 Pt 2

Another day, another reveal of countdown songs.  Yesterday, you saw #101-71.  #70 is something of a rebel.  It’s one of one two songs in the countdown that is currently unavailable on Spotify.  You can take that up with Starside R&D on January 5, when they perform at Double-Wide along with Kid Fight and Sandovall.  So […]

Now that Christmas is over, and you have time to kill until New Year’s Eve, this seems the perfect time to begin The Ghost’s Year End Countdown. For the next three days, I will be highlighting songs that were among the best and most defining tracks for me in 2018. Today, we start at #101, […]

It’s that most wonderful time of the season.  It’s when we get to find out who’s been naughty, and who’s been nice.  It’s a time of gift-giving, and of spreading goodwill to your neighbor.  That’s right; it’s time to celebrate the upcoming Ghost’s Top 101 Songs of 2018.  But you knew that’s what I was […]

VW (Video Wednesday): 12/19/2018

VW Black Beetle

Welcome to what is almost certainly the final Video Wednesday of 2018.  By this time next week, I’ll be knee deep in Year End Countdown mode, so at least you have that to look forward to. One track that will almost certainly be on the list is “Cry” by Mitchell Ferguson.  The song earned Mr. […]

Monday Mixteen 20181203

It’s that time of year when the days get shorter and shorter.  While the daylight hours may be lessening, the holiday season makes it feel more eventful and often stressful.  Simply put, there’s more to do with shorter days.  The Ghost understands that time is at a premium.  Today’s Monday Mixteen is the shortest one […]
