We’re getting closer and closer to Mardi Gras and Release Day! Woo-hoo! No, I am not twirling my T-shirt over my head like a terrible towel. Honest.
As I mentioned last week, because of the upcoming holiday, the next couple of weeks will have a theme. Yes, I know, next Wednesday is actually the day after Mardi Gras, but I’m going to cheat and play a song for Mardi Gras anyway.
Today though, I have a special song for you. Now, this song was one of my favorites as a kid. It came out in 1975, when I was just a twinkle in my dad’s eye, so it’s a song I grew up listening to. I did hear it at Mardi Gras, mostly when I was younger. It’s such a fun song so I have to share it with y’all.
The song is called They All Ask’d For You by The Meters. The Meters had several line-up changes, but featured Dr. John, a couple of the Neville brothers, and other guys from the music industry around New Orleans.
I hope you enjoy the song! And remember, dey all ask’d for you! 😉
