Drink a Little Poison (or Just Listen to It)

I first heard this song on Treme, which does a fabulous job of showcasing New Orleans music.

This song has to be among the finest. Feeling a little sad? Listen. Feeling a little tired? Listen. Feeling a little homesick for the South? Don’t listen — it will just make that worse, while also making  you crave hush puppies and spicy boiled shrimp. Or maybe that’s just me.

This is antidepressant medication in a song, people.
