Best of All Time?

Anytime a “best of” list is compiled, there will be much criticism. Today the Dallas Observer published a list we termed “interesting” on social media.  Interesting due to some glaring omissions and strange inclusions.  An extremely impassioned response broke out on our Facebook page decrying the list.  This motivated us to undergo a remix.

So…we’d love to hear your top 5 (not 50 unless you feel inclined) best Texas/Red Dirt songs “of all time” using whatever metric you determine. We’ll compile the results of this informal poll into what is hopefully a more legitimate representation of “best”. Hit us with your TAKES below!

    That article on the Dallas Observer website is poorly written. Just one major mistake I caught: They claim that the song “Guinivere” by Eli Young Band was the closest they have come to tasting mainstream popularity. I’m no Eli Young Band fan myself, but I’m pretty sure they had a couple of other songs hit #1 on the US country charts, “Crazy Girl” and “Even If It Breaks Your Heart”. “Drunk Again” hit number 3.

    That and I cant place a Jack Ingram song called Old Man. Did they mean Beat Up Ford?
