Maybe you're in New Orleans partying it up, or you're far away, either way, you can still celebrate Mardi Gras. The official holiday is this Tuesday. So this weekend's playlist is featuring everything you need to get in the Mardi Gras mindset.

I won't be there this year. But of course, I'll still be celebrating.

Here's my Mardi Gras Playlist:

1.The Meters “Mardi Gras Mambo”
You can't have Mardi Gras without the mambo. One of the most famous Mardi Gras songs and it always puts a smile on my face. 
2. Dr. John “When The Saints Go Marching In”
This whole song reminds me of New Orleans, but it's also perfect for the parades during the celebration.
3. Rebirth Brass Band “I Feel Like Funking It Up”
This song takes me straight to the street parades with the brass bands and the baton twirlers. One listen, and you'll feel like you're right there swaying with the crowd. 
4. Choppa “Mardi Gras Wobble”
When this song came out a few years back, we wore out this track during Mardi gras. I swear I heard it over 100 times during that weekend. And it's perfect to get low to.
5. Professor Longhair “Mardi Gras In New Orleans”
You can't really get more classic NOLA that Professor Longhair and this song. 
6. Dixie Cups “Iko Iko”
You can't help but listen to this song and clap along. 
7. Buckwheat Zydeco “Throw Me Something, Mister”
One of my favorite sayings of all time “Throw Me something, Mister” this girl loves beads.
8. Stop, Inc “Second Line”
Ok, at this point I have to stop. I got teary eyed putting together this playlist. I just love Mardi Gras so much! This song is the best way to end it. I can already see drunk people streaming out of Bourbon street at sunrise.
