I See a Ghost

Album: Yet to be released on an album (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • Concrete Blonde lead singer Johnette Napolitano told us that there are distinct paranormal influences with her songwriting. She explained: "I'll be out in the stall with the horses or whatever, and then something comes to my mind. Or what happens most is I wake up in the middle of the night and there's something in my head, and then I have to make the decision whether to either get up and record it or go back to sleep. And I've learned over the years that you'd better get your ass up and record it."
