Last night while sorting laundry and listening to the excellent mix that HG recently sent me, I stopped what I was doing to check the tracklist to see what this particular song was. It was the 5th or 6th time I'd done that with that song in the last few days (I'm a little slow ) and of course it was The Ghost of You. I think it is now officially imprinted so that the next time I hear it I can name that tune and its artist faster than two shakes of a rat's tail. Great song. I want to hear more.

joyful, I'm glad you're liking "The Ghost of You." I was a little worried to put it on there, not knowing if My Chemical Romance's sound would appeal to you or not. But I love the song (and the band) so much that I couldn't stop myself. Glad I did now!

Their album is so brash and slick at the same time, really angry and dark, but really poppy. I still get too excited listening to it.

By the way, the ghost theme on the "Heat" mix has not gone unnoticed.

Hehe, I don't know what was up with that! I picked out the songs individually, and it wasn't until I was making the tracklisting that I realized the 'theme.' At one point I had the three songs all right next to each other, but I thought that was a little much.

I wonder if I could do a whole mix with that theme...

I was wondering if it was accidental or intentional and if I should be searching for hidden ghost messages in the songs.

I bet you could do a ghost mix though...Let's see, there's "The Ghost of Tom Joad" (Springsteen), and damn, I was going to say Wilco's "A Ghost is Born" but there isn't a song by that name but you could cheat and use the song the line is delivered in, "Theologians," and then there's...um...oh yeah, "Ghostbusters"! I'm sure you have that laying around somehwere. So that's 6 songs, almost half done.

There's Placebo's "Sleeping With Ghosts," and Good Charlotte also has a song called "The Ghost of You" that's pretty good. Alright, this mix is almost done!

Duh! I should've thought of that since I'm still in love with the cover so it's prominently displayed as the first cd on my current "frequent rotation" rack.

I have Sleeping With Ghosts, along with a few other Placebo CDs and lots of U2 ones, displayed on my wall in these cool CD display thingies. The Placebo ones have especially cool artwork. If I could display most of my CDs as art, I definitely would.


By the way, you can order a poster of the SWG cover here. My mom ordered me some posters for Christmas from this site without any problems. Just search for Placebo and you'll see it.

FYI,

The Cure has a b-side called 'Fear of Ghosts'......which I've never heard. Add that to your list.


EDIT:

After doing some research, I found out The Misfits have a song called 'Crimson Ghost'. I knew they had to have something with ghost in the title!!! They pulled through.

You and your research!

Yeah, I was figuring AFI had to have a ghost song, but if they do, I don't know of it.

Edited to fix an egregious typographical error.

I've seen those--I need to get one for my home office which is crying out for some kind of musical decoration.

That's excellent, yertle. You should pick up the whole album if you get a chance. I think the whole thing is brilliant.
