You know those people who give you shit for being excited about the weekend?
The ones who say, “If you spend all week waiting for Friday, you’ve got your priorities screwed up. You should be fired up for Monday, not Friday.”
Allow me to say, fuck those people!
I look forward to weekends, particularly three-day weekends.
I listen to music all throughout the week, but the weekend is when I do exceptionally deep discovery dives, finding hidden gems and building playlists on Spotify.
I plan to do a lot of this over the MLK weekend.
Recently, I’ve been assembling a playlist around one of my favorite styles of music, zydeco.
Zydeco is a music genre that evolved in southwest Louisiana by French Creole speakers which blends blues, rhythm and blues, and music indigenous to the Louisiana Creoles and the Native people of Louisiana.
Though distinct in origin from the Cajun music of Louisiana, the two forms influenced each other, forming a complex of genres native to Louisiana.
The thing I like most about this type of music is that it makes you want to get up and dance. And just makes you happy. In fact, I defy you to try and be sad while listening to zydeco.
Here are some of my favorite cuts from my playlist in progress. I hope they help you to have a happy and enjoyable three-day weekend.
