Monday Mixteen: 8/26/19

Monday Mixteen 20190826

This has been a fabulous weekend for The Ghost. I got to celebrate my birthday weekend with family and friends, and of course, I got to see some great live music courtesy of Pleasant Grove. Me thinks The Ghost has been partied out, however, so there will be no commentary from me today. Instead, I offer you one of my class acrostic playlists. The message I really wanted would have taken seventeen tracks instead of the usual sixteen, so I adopted a Prince style of writing for the acrostic message. Within the playlist are both older favorites of mine, mixed in with some current favorite jams. And for those having a hard time deciphering the message, let the Garage Barrage song be a strong hint to you.

  1. “Happy Birthday”, Garage Barrage
  2. “Aimlessly”, Polydogs
  3. “Pacemaker (9626)”, Sub-Sahara
  4. “People Say Things Change”, Air Review
  5. “Young & Reckless”, The Roomsounds
  6. “Big Brown Eyes”, Old 97’s
  7. “In the City”, Chilldren of Indigo
  8. “Red, White, and Blues”, Nicholas Altobelli
  9. “Take Off”, Cut Throat Finches
  10. “Here I Am”, Michael Lee
  11. “Dream Merchants”, Blushing
  12. “All Your Love Around”, Kinsley August
  13. “You Pressed the Crash Button”, Novaak
  14. “2 Steps”, Chomsky
  15. “Mary’s Garden”, The High Moons
  16. “Empire”, Emmeline

  • Monday Mixteen: 7/22/19 Politics are an area that I’ve always been reluctant to discuss on the blog.  After all, this is a music blog, not a political one.  With the level of vitriol being spread in our country right now, however, I feel that I cannot continue to stay silent.  The level of racism and hate being spouted [...]
