By popular demand, here’s *my* Spotify playlist of my Top 50 Louisiana Tunes. There are a couple of different versions based on spotty Spotify availability:
- The Garth Brooks catalog is not on Spotify so I’ve replaced his version of #45, Callin’ Baton Rouge, with one by Brooks Jefferson.
- Connie Boswell’s rendition of #32, Way Down Yonder In New Orleans, was unavailable so I substituted a live version by Louis Armstrong.
- At #20 we have some Louis Prima lagniappe, a medley of Basin Street Blues and When It’s Sleepy Time Down South. More of the Wildest is always welcome.
- # 2c, Zachary Richard’s No French No More is not available on Spotify.
I suspect I’m the only one who cares about these details but I do. Like the list at the Bayou Brief, it’s in reverse order.
Enjoy the playlist, y’all.
