With "Tres Hombres", ZZ Top was getting extensive airplay on the Album oriented FM radio stations of that time period and quickly became stars amongst listeners and Hard Rock fans. "Tres Hombres" also starts the great music that is still heard on many Classic Rock and Classic Hit radio stations to this day. - Peter

ZZ Top My Head's In Mississippi I'm shufflin' thru the Texas sand, But my head's in Mississippi.  "My Head's In MississippI" is from ZZ Top's 1990 and 10th lp, "Recycler". With "Recycler", ZZ Top was becoming a staple of a fairly new FM radio station format, the Classic Rock stations for some of their older stuff such as "Cheap Sunglasses" and "Legs". How well-known ZZ Top had become in the 1980's was evident by another song on the "Recycler" lp, "Double Back", which became the theme song for a major motion picture named, "Back To The Future Part 3" and a Top 40 tune to boot. - Peter
ZZ Top Just Got Paid I just got paid, Got me a pocket full of change. "Just Got Paid" is another song from ZZ Top's 1972 sophomore lp, "Rio Grande Mud". For many rock critics, "Just Got Paid" was the first song where ZZ Top started to drift away from just the original Blues-Rock territory that they started out in, to a more Hard Rock territory that would sell on the burgeoning Album oriented FM radio stations that were just starting in the early 1970's to take over popularity from Top 40 AM radio stations. "Just Got Paid" was also the group's first venture into Billboard Magazine's Hot 100 charts. ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard's beards were starting to become recognizable, as well as their great blend of blues, rock, and TexMex music. - Peter
ZZ Top Deal Goin' Down When the deal goin' down and you gonna take your chance... "Deal Goin' Down" is from ZZ Top's 1994 11th lp (CD), "Antenna". - Peter

ZZ Top Hi Fi Mama I want your hi fi mama, won't you let me play it tonight, I want you hi fi mama, won't you let me play it tonight, I put the needle in the groove,  The rest of the opening line: "... while you douse the lights." "Hi Fi Mama" is yet another double entendre song from ZZ Top's 1979 lp, "Degullo". - Peter
ZZ Top Bedroom Thang I know you wanna be my bedroom thang, But you're much too young. "Bedroom Thang" is yet another tune from ZZ Top's 1970 debut lp, "First Album". - Peter
ZZ Top TV Dinners TV dinners, there's nothin' else to eat.  "TV Dinners" is another song from ZZ Top's big selling 1983 lp, "Eliminator". Although, not as well known as say "Legs" or "Sharp Dressed Man", "TV Dinners" certainly had it's hooks about an American icon of the last half of the 20th Century. - Peter
ZZ Top Legs  She's got legs, she knows how to use them.  - Peter
ZZ Top Groovy Little Hippie Pad I'm gonna find me a groovy little hippie pad. "Groovy Little Hippie Pad" is another song (although not as well known as "Pearl Necklace") from ZZ Top's 1981 lp, "El Loco". - Peter
ZZ Top Pearl Necklace Pearl necklace. "Pearl Necklace" is from ZZ Top's 1981 and 7th lp, "El Loco". "Pearl Necklace" was ZZ Top's response to the New Wave and Power pop dance tunes and artists starting to dominate the charts in 1981. ZZ Top met that head on by not giving up their Hard Rock, Blues Rock and Tex Mex sound, but by incorporating into the mix their own brand of Texas dance hall beats that sound nearly like the skiffle music introduced to America by the British bands such as the Rolling Stones back in the 1960's. "Pearl Necklace" was only a hint as to the big stuff that was just about to come from ZZ Top. - Peter
