and my current favorite is "Drink a Little Poison 'fore You Die." I think it is by John Mooney.

Some Clifton Chenier & Boozoo Chavis. I would suggest Rhapsody to explore some good music choices. For $4.95/month you can listen to the Zydeco station and discover some great music.

jimjade, it's nice to see someone acknowledge Steve Goodman as the Author of "City of New Orleans." Although he died more than 25 years ago, he still remains as one of my all-time favorite songwriters.
