Monday Mixteen: 1/21/19

Monday Mixteen MLK 2019

To celebrate the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday today, I felt it should be something that was incorporated in today’s Monday Mixteen.  The Ghost’s first instinct was to do another acrostic playlist, with the song titles spelling out his name (minus the Jr. part).  While I kept with that theme, I felt it was not enough to simply use his name.  I started thinking about what Rev. King stood for.  He spoke of the idea that all men were created equal.  He fought for equality for all and inclusion.  So in that spirit, I strived to make this playlist as diverse as possible.  The musicians that make up these acts cross over lines of race, ethnicity, age, gender, sexual preference, and religion.  It shows that Dallas’ music community is every bit as diverse as this city we live in.  I hope these tunes bring you some joy today, and that your heart will be full of the same spirit of love as Rev. King.

  • Monday Mixteen: 2/18/19 A funny thing happened this week. I’m not referring to the fact that I posted two articles this week, though that has been quite atypical of my output as of late. It’s more what I rediscovered in the process of completing those posts. The truth is, I really love writing about artists. I’m not just [...]
  • Monday Mixteen: 1/14/19 You may notice that the songs in the below playlist are in the alternating order of the letters S & M. Yes, The Ghost realizes that this theme may be rather controversial. I could have easily shied away from it, but it seems pointless to try to hide one’s deepest desires. Several readers will find [...]
  • The Ghost’s Top 101 of 2018: #5... 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.  [...]
  • The Ghost’s Top 101 of 2018: #7... 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 [...]
