Top Ten Zydeco Songs

I cannot keep the smile from my face when I listen to this genre; it's so much fun! To sit near a campfire and listen to a live Zydeco band would be a dream come true but I'll settle for listening to these great songs on CD instead. Feel free to add your own or vote for an existing favourite.
