From the sounds of jazz to the bounce movement that paved the way for rap artists such as Lil Wayne, Juvenile, and Mystikal, few NFL cities have the rich music heritage that New Orleans has.

That being said, thanks to Spotify, I decided to share my list of 12 tracks that should be on any Saints' fan playlist during the 2013 NFL Playoffs.

Thank me later.

1. "Do It Again"

Artist: Rebirth Brass Band

Album: Rebirth of New Orleans, 2011

One of the city's greatest brass bands, this track from their debut album for New Orleans-based Basin Street Records is very self explanatory if you're a Saints fan. Along with that, in various parts of the song, members of the band chant, "We already done it, we gone do it again!!!!"

2. "Touchdown"

Artist: Bob James

Album: Touchdown, 1978

One of the greatest pianists in smooth jazz history, Bob James' "Touchdown", was part of his best-selling album of the same name. Aside from that track is the theme from "Taxi", which remains one of the best TV theme songs in history and appears on the album.

3. "Halftime (Stand Up and Get Crunk)"

Artist: Ying Yang Twins

Album: My Brother & Me, 2004

The unofficial anthem of the Saints, the Atlanta rap duo (no, that is not a misprint) recorded this as part of their highly successful album "My Brother and Me", an album that reached #11 on the US rap charts. In fact, the Ying Yang Twins in December were guests of the Saints when the Panthers came to the Superdome.

4. "Welcome 2 Tha Nolia"

Artist: Juvenile

Album: 400 Degreez, 1998

I was in middle school when this album, which 15 years later remains the best selling album in Cash Money Records history, was released. While the album was best known for "Back That Thang Up" and "Ha", this track to me announced the arrival of Juvenile more than anything.

5. "Respect Us"

Artist: Lil Wayne feat. Juvenile and B.G.

Album: Tha Block is Hot, 1999

The fact that this song and album (I was 13 years old when this album dropped) is 15 years old is another reminder to me that I'm getting old. Also, the title of this song is a reminder to the national media (hint: ESPN) that the Saints should be respected.

6. "Let's Go Get Em"

Artist: Rebirth Brass Band

Album: Rebirth of New Orleans, 2011

Another great effort from the band's Basin Street Records debut, a friend of mine who was quoted in one of my earlier pieces on CSC recommended this song to me when I was constructing my Spotify playlist before the playoffs began.

7. "Beware"

Artist: Mystikal

Album: Mind of Mystikal, 1995

Recorded as a diss track, this track is considered a classic in the minds of New Orleans-area hip hop heads.

8. "Breezy"

Artist: Najee

Album: Just an Illusion, 1992

While it's pretty obvious Drew Brees' play last weekend was anything but breezy, this song is on the list due to his nickname.

9. "You Don't Wanna Go To War"

Artist: Rebirth Brass Band

Album: Hot Venom, 2004

Made popular during Wichita State's run to the Final Four last year, this song featured one of the last appearances by Soujla Slim, who was murdered in December of 2003 in the Gentily section of the city.
