I managed to miss the anniversary of Molly Ivins’ death last week. For my penance, here are ten of my favorite Texas songs. I know she would have approved.
1. Stupid Texas Song – Austin Lounge Lizards
2. Deep Ellum Blues – Asylum Street Spankers
3. That’s Right (You’re Not From Texas) – Lyle Lovett
4. The Rivers Of Texas – Flying Fish Sailors
5. Texas Flood – Stevie Ray Vaughan
6. Odessa – The Mollys
7. Texican Style – Los Lonely Boys
8. La Grange – ZZ Top
9. Beaumont Boys – Ezra Charles
10. I Can’t Tame Wild Women – The Hot Club of Cowtown
The world is a more boring place without you, Molly. Rest in peace.
