13 thoughts on “Buckwheat Zydeco – Hey Ma Petit Fille I’m Going Now”

      1. I have a very vivid memory of going to some sort of family reunion, or some big anniversary celebration, whatever, when I was a kid. There was an accordion player there, and he was excellent. I remember sitting and watching him,not the dancers or the other kids, or anything else. It was definitely a polka kind of thing, but more than that. That started my appreciation. So for me, I'll take the polkas too (TY Weird Al), but I love when it gets used other places.

  1. I looked up Clifton Chenier when I was a youth, based on the Paul Simon name-check in "That Was Your Mother".
    The New Ulm Library had Classic Clifton on LP.
    I dubbed it to cassette. So that's all the zydeco I know. "Tu Le Ton Son Ton" was my favorite, or at least the one I can remember best. The cassette is probably in a box in my basement.
    I forgot my iPod at home today; may have to stream some of that album from youtube for tunes.
