Happy Birthday, Allen Toussaint

January 14, 2013 • SOUND PROP

If someone that had never visited the city asked me, “What is New Orleans like?”, there is only one song I would need to play, and the non-initiated would have their answer. Listening to Allen Toussaint‘s “Southern Nights” just sounds like New Orleans, whether you’ve been here or not.

The video above gets me every time I watch it, the way he waxes nostalgic about his boyhood. To listen to the original album version, see below.
