Mardi Gras is here, which means it's time for the grand parade all parades — in New Orleans at least. We can look forward to bright and dazzling costumes, massive floats, huge parties and colorful beads that will probably litter the streets and get clogged in street drains in the celebration's aftermath.
If you're unable to find some time and energy to step out and join in with the Mardi Gras celebrations, you can always opt for the easier task: Find yourself a Mardi Gras playlist and channel the energy as best you can through the tunes.
We here at Billboard have crafted a handy Mardi Gras playlist for this year's celebrations for you to enjoy.
