This Week's Running Playlist: Texas Edition

classic-flagHere's what I'm running to this week: a tribute to Texas, that crazy, eclectic, bizarre, rootin' tootin' state of my birth. These artists were all born in the Lone Star State. Bo Diddley, Buddy Holly

Buried Alive in the Blues, Janis Joplin

La Grange, ZZ Top

Boys of Summer, Don Henley

Oh Pretty Woman, Roy Orbison

Walk, Pantera

Take the Money and Run, Steve Miller Band

Run the World (Girls), Beyonce (ok I'll admit it---I have several Beyonce songs on there)

Pride and Joy, Stevie Ray Vaughan

That's Right (You're Not from Texas), Lyle Lovett

Let 'Er Rip, Dixie Chicks (also Tonight the Heartache's on Me)

On the Road Again, Willie Nelson

 

Wonder if any Texans, or other Texans in the diaspora, have others to suggest. I definitely need some Bob Wills and some Tejano.

UPDATE: Lots more suggestions on my Facebook page, including several by the Texas Tornadoes and Freddy King's "Going Down," a great blues song.
