#RocktoberMusicFest : ZZ Top - Tush



It’s Saturday. Who’s rocking out with me today?


ZZ Top has been around since 1969. I have been a fan of theirs for almost that long.  Saw them in concert in 1999, and loved every minute of it.

Tush comes from their fourth album, released in 1975. It remains in the top 100 Best Hard Rock Songs of all-time.

The title is a double entendre, referring both to slang for buttocks (with the connotation of "a piece of ass"), and slang for "luxurious" or "lavish", according to a 1985 interview with Dusty Hill in Spin magazine. The word "tush" is pronounced in the song in such a way that it rhymes with the word "rush," resulting in it sometimes being misheard as "touch."

I can’t say this is my favorite song, mainly because their catalog of songs is chock full of great tunes. So, let this song get your weekend rolling and don’t forget to have a good time!

    1. Fun Fact: Back in the day, As a gift to the wedding party, my now ex-husband and I gave tickets to see ZZ Top in concert. Their opening act was a Lynyrd Skynyrd tribute band.
