Deep Cuts: Shirt Songs

That old dude looked pretty swell in his A’s t-shirt, like he belonged to something bigger than himself. Music guys are the same way, I suppose, with their concert tees and band logos. I know I’ve sported my share over the years.

Yes, and in exchange my favorite bands have given me some t-shirt songs in exchange. Here are a few:

“Girl in a T-Shirt,” ZZ Top.

“Hairshirt,” R.E.M.

“Some Dispute Over T-Shirt Sales,” Butthole Surfers.

“White Shirt,” Charlatans.

“The Girl in the Dirty Shirt,” Oasis.

“The Band Wore Blue Shirts,” Joe Jackson.

“Green Shirt,” Elvis Costello.

“Fembot in a Wet T-Shirt,” Frank Zappa.

There you have it: Eight songs about not so plain white tees. What did I miss? I’m listening.
