79. Lift to Experience, "Falling From Cloud 9" From one of the best albums of any North Texas act in recent history, "Falling From Cloud 9" is one of the more accessible songs on 2001's The Texas-Jerusalem Crossroads. It's probably the one that caught my ear when I first saw the band perform at Trees in 1999. "Put your dreams in a bottle, smash it to the ground / Slip off your slippers, and dance all around / It's just blood." - Daniel Hopkins

78. Sam the Sham & the Pharaohs, "Wooly Bully" Dallas' own Domingo "Sam "Zamudio took his alter ego to chart success with a song based on his cat. A novelty? Perhaps, but it's still a pretty sweet twist on your standard blues song. And that organ line owns the whole thing. - Audra Schroeder
