- Is there a ghost – Band of Horses – Discovered during a Fringe episode; this is one of my favourite groups in recent years!
- Misguided Ghosts – Paramore – The best song on the album – I think this is just haunting!
- The Ghost of Tom Joad – Junip – Grapes of wrath. Just had to get a literary reference in here somewhere eh?
- Ghost of the Navigator – Iron Maiden – Horrible song really – brings to mind some of the spookiest images. So obviously it’s a MUST LISTEN.
- Ghostrider in the Sky – Peggy Lee – This is less of a song and more of a tale woven through lyric and music. Also – cowboy ghosts. Hooked yet?
- Ghost Rider – Suicide – According to wikipedia – these eerie, sturdy, proto-punk anthems rank among the most visionary, melodic experiments the rock realm has yet produced. So there you go.
- Ghost – Neutral Milk House – I *think* this might become one of my funeral songs…
- Little Ghost – The White Stripes – It’s a strange sort of love story featuring a ghost. Weird. Wonderful.
- Ghostbuster – Ray Parker Jr – Ok – I didn’t want to leave you all creeped out and unaware that there are people who can help with unnatural visitations.
If there’s something strange
in your neighborhood
Who ya gonna call?
oh come on, everyone knows I love cheese.

Though a long fan of the man; I recently reignited my love for his music after hearing this song in a season one episode of Dollhouse!
- The River of Dreams – Billy Joel
Cheese. Coz I does love it!
- Punching in a dream – The Naked and Famous
- Dreams – The Cranberries
So torn between this version of the Fleetwood Mac one. I *think* I made the right choice for this playlist. This is a more definitive version (not definitive Definitive – just more definite) for me.
- Boulevard of Broken Dreams – Green Day

BEWARE – earworm.
- Dream On – Glee and Neil Patrick Harris
