Listen Up: Fat Tuesday Edition

This week, Listen Up!, our music column, has caught Mardi Gras fever. Got some suggestions (or, um, some king cake you’d like to share)? Let us know in the comments and we’ll add them to our playlist.

It’s Mardi Gras and, just for today, we, like Tom Waits, wish we were in New Orleans. Never the type to let insignificant details like say a few miles (alright, so more like thousands of miles) stop us from partying, we’ve decided to compile a playlist in honor of Fat Tuesday, the lovely town of New Orleans, and all the drunken girls who so willingly take their tops off for beads. (Wait, did we just say that last part out loud? Oops.)

If your favorite New Orleans or Mardi Gras tune isn’t on our list, let us know in the comments and we’ll add your suggestion. Also, check out our guide of parties and events celebrating Mardi Gras.

This playlist is no longer available. Sorry, folks!
