Get out and paint the town red virtually with our musical tour (okay, it’s a playlist) of tunes celebrating, be-moaning, and relating a wide range of lives, loves, and experiences in H-Town and along the Gulf Coast.

The eclectic mix channels much of Houston’s coastal soul, cowboy roots, modern hip hop influence, and quirky peculiarity.

You’ll find local talents, past and present, from Archie Bell, BeyoncĂ© and Steve Earle to The Suffers, Travis Scott and ZZ Top. Plus carpet-bagger musicians, acclaimed and unknown, who were inspired by some aspect of the city while passing through.

While it’s not exhaustive and fully comprehensive, we hope it’s a lot of fun and a source of distraction. Scroll down if your favorite isn’t on the list and you want to suggest it.

Language Advisory: Parents and guardians should note that some songs on the list contain language not suitable for young ears. Others may be broadcast appropriate, but still deal with adult themes.
