Monday Mixteen: 4/5/21

Mon Mixteen 20210405

Keepin’ it real.  I haven’t felt inspired to write lately.  I’ve had ideas after ideas for articles, playlist, etc. yet have lacked the motivation to post anything.  The Monday Mixteen I’m sharing below was supposed to be shared last week.  It was a review of sixteen of my favorite tracks released in the first quarter […]

The Ghosts Hearing Is 2020

GOBL Eye Chart

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 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

Ghost_Cassette

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. […]
