Today, we're introducing you to Mix #52. There is absolutely no secret about what the theme of this playlist is: it's Ash Wednesday. Naturally, there is not a culturally accepted "Ash Wednesday" genre of music like we have for Christmas, but that doesn't stop artists from writing songs with that as the title. Some take it quite literally, others prefer to use it as a metaphor.
All of these songs vary in genre from New Orleans funk from Galactic to something a bit smoother to ease you into the middle of your week like Harry Connick Jr. Either way, this playlist offers variety you won't see anywhere else. After all, how many songs can you think of that have been named after holidays?
We hope this list will motivate you for the next hour to help you do the best work of your life.

Did you miss last week's playlist? Don't worry - we've got you covered! Check out last week's Spotify mix: Funk Tuesday. Fat Tuesday is a good excuse to listen to music from New Orleans, but why limit ourselves to blues? Louisiana funk has plenty to offer, so check it out!
