The Top Songs of 2020: #80-71

Lizard Lounge 2020

There’s nothing like a good countdown to get readers excited, you know? The Ghost is bringing you the next ten songs on the countdown, and I am paying tribute to another venue that Dallas lost this year. Today’s selection is the iconic Lizard Lounge. While Lizard Lounge may not have been as much a traditional live music venue as nightclub, it survived the Dallas nightclub terrain for nearly 30 years, which I’m pretty sure is at least 210 in nightclub years. So enjoy this portion of the countdown, plus I am offering up a teaser of sorts: keep your evening of December 30th open. That’s all I’m gonna say, for now…

  1. Corner Suns, “The Driver IS The Traffic”
  2. The Static Creatures, “No Love in This Town”
  3. Somogyi, “The Kind of Love”
  4. Elizabeth Wills, “Walking Each Other Home”
  5. Bastards of Soul, “I’ve Got the Key”
  6. Salim Nourallah, “Assassins”
  7. Bayleigh Cheek, “Tale of an Immortal”
  8. Nick Snyder & The Real Deal, “Reading Your Mind”
  9. Blake Vaughn, “Eulogy”
  10. Loafers, “Square”

  • The Ghosts Hearing Is 2020 That’s right: my hearing is 20/20 and I’m seeing things loud and clear.  I know that statement doesn’t make much sense, but hey, neither has anything else this year. But for all the awfulness that has been in overabundance this year, music has been one of the few saving graces of this year.  In spite [...]

  • The Monday Mixteen: 8/17/20 Anyone can make a playlist.  Even any hack can make a Monday Mixteen playlist, as that jerk from Coffeebreak Cafe proved last week.  It takes real talent, however, to make The Monday Mixteen.  Only The Ghost has The Skills to pay The Bills, so to speak.  I’ve brought back a concept I used a few [...]
