"WHO DAT" : The Weekend Mix
You must have seen this coming.
With Mardi Gras just two weeks away, and the Saints about to hand it to the elder Manning and his Colts on Sunday, I would be remiss if this "Weekend Mix" did not scream out "WHO DAT!"
So get out your best black and gold, put away your cranky pants, and get into it...if not the game, at least the mix.
If this music doesn't snap you out of...well...the type of mood I'VE been in, then it is time for your Spring thaw. (It worked for me, though I haven't put the cranky pants in storage just yet.)
Of course, if you're a Colts fan, maybe this mix is not for you. I'll work on some Nick Drake & Judee Sill for you guys.
We got the Tin Men spinning some Zeppelin. Bonerama twisting some Black Sabbath as well as adding some horns to Ok Go's cover of a Ziggy Stardust classic, with the great David Torkanowsky on piano. Jon Cleary, Donald Harrison Jr., and The Wild Magnolias put their stamp on some New Orleans classics, while Nicholas Payton and Kermit Ruffins take some very familiar melodies and add their gris-gris.
