Cheap Sunglasses by ZZ Top

Updated on November 13, 2012

ZZ Top Cheap Sunglasses

Cheap Sunglasses is one of the Greatest Hits by ZZ Top, an American hard rock band formed in 1969 in Houston, Texas.

The group members are Billy Gibbons (guitar, vocals, harmonica), Dusty Hill (bass guitar, vocals, keyboards), and Frank Beard (drums, percussion).

The band holds the distinction of being among the few rock bands still composed of its original recording members for nearly 40 years, and until September 2006, they had the same manager/producer, Bill Ham.

ZZ Top reached peak commercial success in the 1970s and 1980s, scoring many hit songs during that era, but they remain together today and are still touring and releasing albums. ZZ Top was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004.

Nearly as well-known as their music is the group's image: Gibbons and Hill are almost always pictured wearing sunglasses, similar if not matching clothing, and their trademark chest-length beards. Quite comically, in spite of his own surname, Frank Beard almost always has just a moustache. In 1984, the Gillette Company reportedly offered Gibbons and Hill US$10 million apiece to shave their beards for a television commercial but they declined, stating "We're too ugly without 'em".

Song Lyrics: Cheap Sunglasses by ZZ Top

Cheap Sunglasses - ZZ Top from the Album "Deguello" 1979

When you get up in the morning and the light is hurt your head

The first thing you do when you get up out of bed

Is hit that street a-runnin' and try to meet the masses

And go get yourself some cheap sunglasses

Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah

I spot a little thing and I followed her all night

In a funky pair of levis and her sweater's kind of tight

She had a west coast strut that was as sweet as molases

But what really knocked me out was her cheap sunglasses

Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah


Now go out and get yourself some thick black frames

With the glass so dark thay won't even know your name

And the choice is up to you cause they come in two classes

Rhinestone shades and cheap sunglasses

Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah

      I have enjoyed ZZ top for many years. They were very popular when I was in high school. I still like to listen to and play their music.

      I absolutely love ZZ Top! Some of their older songs have a bit of a blues feel, but they know how to ROCK, too! Cheap Sunglasses is one of my ZZ Top faves. I saw them live in '86 when "Afterburner" was their latest CD--fantastic concert! I have every CD they've done. Wonderful lens!

      That's a nice song and the lyrics sort of tell a story. Great lens! Sundae ;-)

      I love this band. They were a favorite of my Father's and we used to listen to the "Greatest Hits" CD together. Every once in a while when my Mom and sisters would go out for the day, we would have the house to ourselves and blare the stereo with some ZZ Top. Good memories.

      I lensrolled this over to my 1960 Music Lens.. I cannot believe I have not mentioned ZZ Top on it. Their music is very unique isn't it.

      I like ZZ Top a lot (or Zed-Zed Top as we call them in England ;-) Yes, they have indeed been around for decades, in fact I believe Mick Jagger (my next-door neighbour) even covered one of their tracks early in his career with the Rolling Stones. Can't remember which one though.
