Songs to play on Mardi Gras float


Our krewe for the Spanish Town Parade is downloading songs to play during the parade. I think we have most of your run of the mill great Mardi Gras songs (Second Line, etc.). We need some great crowd pleasers. Any suggestions?

PS....our Krewe is the I Da Ho's (Idaho's).
Thanks!
