    Texas AD Steve Patterson is thinking about scheduling a football game in Mexico. It got me thinking about what would a good music playlist be for traveling to the game. I found this ZZ Top gem on YouTube called Goin' Down to Mexico. What would you add to the playlist?

    This is great. Keep them coming!

    I also think this one might apply.

    I will try again, this is how the team could get there, for the game, would save some bucks.



    Curses, foiled again, still leaving up the video. I am going back to the drawing board or youtube.

    I'm through fooling around, you must suffer the wrath of Swedes, that don't know what they are singing, in English, about the Mexican Revolution. Viva los Abba!

    If you meet a special Señorita on your trip to Mexico you can play this for her as you gaze into her ojos and drift off into las estrellas con su corazon entero.

    Snek does love his banditas, wait till the China trip thread comes out, for his expertise, on Asian beauties.

    Back to the subject at hand, here is an oldie but goody, sure liked going to see Doug Sahm, back in the day.

    "The Sir Douglas Quintet" was a little before my time, but I used to talk to him and Alvin Crow about them at the Broken Spoke. Sometimes Doug would come in and play the steel, for Alvin and the Pleasant Valley Boys.

    It was before my time, but I think I spot some young hipsters, named snek and Worsterman, on the dance floor. Si, es verdad. :smile1:

    Some great songs on this thread already, but no one has posted this one yet. A must for crossing the border on the way to the big game, to be played just after stopping at the local tequila store just south of the border. Be sure to bring your salt shaker and buy a bag of Mexican limes to make the long miles pass quicker.

    I always thought the "Arizona Cowboy, was one of the best singers going. He was fluent in Spanish and recorded songs in that language like "La Borrachita" and "La Paloma."

    I guess it was appropriate, that he sang a song about a Mexican soldier, that died at the Alamo. He sang the "Ballad of the Alamo," for that classic movie.

    He was a race car driver, that would race on Saturday night, then race to the "Grand Ole Opry," and be the closing act.
