The Ghostified Gathering

Music Festival

For a week or so, Festify was all the rage on social media. It was an app that created fictitious festival lineups based on one’s Spotify listening habits. One could create a lineup based on the most listened to artists over the course of a month, six months, or one’s entire time on Spotify. The […]

Monday Mixteen: 1/7/2019

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 […]

Monday Mixteen 20171211

Lately, it seems The Ghost has been short on words.  That tradition is breaking today… sort of.  I still have no commentaries for these sixteen tracks, but I did spend more time than usual typing the titles.  You see, today’s theme is long song titles.  More to the point, the songs have to be over […]

Monday Mixteen 10/30/17: Part II

Monday Mixteen 20171030part2

The Ghost has always thought it to be rather cliched to do songs about ghosts, ghouls, goblins, and the like for Halloween.  Instead of using the obvious imagery, I like to use a different comparison for this holiday.  Halloween is a time for dressing up as a different creature.  The closest musical kin to dressing […]

The Ghost 101 Countdown: The Bottom H...

Today’s reveal on the countdown will show songs #60-51. Instead of just displaying those ten songs, however, it seemed like a good time to do a full on recap. So here you go, #101 all the way to #51. That completes the bottom half of the countdown. Alright, so technically it’s a little less than […]

The Ghost 101 Countdown of 2016: 101-...

The Ghost has a love-hate relationship with year-end lists. In reality, it falls mostly on the love side. There’s something exciting about reading a person’s (or publication’s) choice of best songs, albums, etc. Sometimes the lists align with one’s personal perspective, and other times, not so much. Either way, these lists serve as a time […]

Sunday Spotify Sixteen: 5/29/16

So, remember when I had that awesome plan where I’d count down the Top 500 Texas songs of the 21st Century over the Memorial Day weekend?  Yeah, that’s not happening.  Maybe it’ll happen for Labor Day, but I didn’t do all the necessary research and all the labor needed for a good Top 500 countdown. […]

Sunday Spotify Sixteen Squared: 4/10/...

So, I had this genius idea.  I wanted to do sixteen of my Sunday Spotify Sixteen playlist in one day.  Each playlist would encompass one year of the 21st century, ranging from 2001 to the unfinished year of 2016.  And for the record, the year 2000 is still part of the 20th century.  But, I […]

Sunday Spotify Sixteen: 3/20/2016

So first, let me apologize for the vanishing blog posts last week.  While those posts have forever disappeared into an interweb black hole, there should be no further issues with this and future posts. Also, I’m trying to get some cool stuff up and going this week.  I have some awesome post ideas, plus the […]

Video: The Cliffs of Insanity, “...

bill youre only human

You know that phrase about idle hands being the devil’s work?  John Dufilho must take that phrase very seriously.  All it would take is a look at the list of acts he’s either fronted or been involved with in the past twenty years or so.  Bedwetter, The Deathray Davies, I Love Math (now known as […]
