The spillzone flooding in Louisiana meant to protect the bigger cities like New Orleans is definitely a hot button topic. But no matter what side of the opinion fence you sit on, there is one thing for certain: The state of Louisiana has been through quite a lot in the last decade, flooding just being one of the many things the state (and New Orleans) has had to face.
In honor of the brave people of Louisiana and New Orleans, we’ve compiled a list of our Top Ten Hopeful Songs For Louisiana and New Orleans.
10. “Walking To New Orleans”-[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Neil Young[/lastfm]
A cover of [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Fats Domino[/lastfm]‘s song, Neil Young is joined by a lush orchestra to play the role of a man “walking to New Orleans.” We aren’t sure where he is walking from, but apparently he will need “two pair of shoes” to get away from his gold diggin’ lady and back home to where he feels most comfortable:
It’s time I’m walkin’ to New Orleans/I’m walkin’ to New Orleans/I’m going to need two pair of shoes/When I get through walkin’ to you/When I get back to New Orleans
