Greatest ZZ Top Songs


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Doubleback
22 My Head's In Mississippi

This is such a great song! The riff is kicking, similar to La Grange's, but better in my opinion. The lyrics are normal ZZ Top lyrics: Nonsense, but catchy.

More people need to hear this song. It's like the manliest song ever.

This one is awesome.

Just love this tune, rank it where you want to it's still one of their best...cheers

23 Arrested for Driving While Blind

A real gem, classic zz top sound.

24 Mexican Blackbird
25 Burger Man

Awesome song with an awesome video. Don't get me wrong the 70's period of the band (Tres Hombres, Fandango, Deguello) was the best. But even the purists cannot deny the awesomeness of their 80's output, which was perfectly encapsulated within this song.

26 Hot, Blue and Righteous
27 (Somebody Else Been) Shaking Your Tree
28 Brown Sugar

How is this so low? Should be in the top ten at least

Way too low! Essential zz top. Top 10 easily.

Sucks that they don't play this in concert. Best ever

Deserves top 5 in my opinion

29 Old Man

Come on, this deserves to be in top ten. Such a graet and classic ZZ Top

30 Master of Sparks

Way too far down the list. Great lyrics and scorching hot guitar!

Unbelieveable that this song is so far down the list, when it was released it got no radio play cause it sounded like"through the sparks and the flame I knew that the claim of the Master of Sparks was God" and God wasn't allowed on the Rock and roll radio stations very much in 1973

My favorite due to lyrics and beat. Just good Rock and Roll steeped in blues.

31 Sure Got Cold After the Rain Fell

No synthesizers, no electronic bull. Pure old Texas blues at its best
