Beyoncé–Imma let you finish, but New Kids on the Block, Disney characters, Warren Moon, 2000 local children, and an audience card stunt had the best Super Bowl (XXV) halftime show of all time—has claimed that girls run the world, but we all really know it is cats. From Grumpy Cat, to a (sadly fake) crying confession of feline love, to woo potential soul-mates, to joining Homo Sapiens on two legs, to the Walker Art Center’s Internet Cat Video Film Festival, to Caturday, it is clear dogs are not really man’s best friend, at least on the Internet. To honor all of this, my roommate Nichole and I have created the amazing playlist below. We hope you purr in delight.

Starting this Tuesday, every week we will bring you a fresh batch of songs revolving around a theme, available below. This week, we are bringing a taste of New Orleans. Starting at the earliest iterations of New Orleans funk, Professor Longhair and Buckwheat Zydeco show the foundation for the next generations of music. Dr. John and The Meters followed, borrowing heavily from their fore bearers, and a song such as “Cissy Strut” exemplifies the progression towards a more guitar driven sound. The next four songs are New Orleans standards performed by a range of modern artists ranging from the Jazzy quartet of Medeski Scofield Martin and Wood to the three trombone attack of Bonerama. Big Freedia represents a new facet of music from New Orleans called “bounce” music. Trombone Shorty represent the future of New Orleans music as he has quickly risen to national prominence, reestablishing New Orleans’ music in the national spotlight.
Valentine’s Day means a lot of different things for different people. For those who’ve been in long-term relationships, it may be likened to an anniversary. For others, it’s an annoyance that requires an unnecessary amount of thought, time, and money. For the roommate of a sappy couple, it may be vomit-inducing. It may also be a day of taking chances. We’ve got you covered for the soundtrack of your V-Day, no matter which category you fall under. There are obvious choices, like “Love Stinks,” but that would be mailing it in. So hopefully you find something pertinent and new to you.
