“On the 4th of July” by James Taylor
A love song set against the backdrop of Independence Day. There’s something about freedom and fireworks that gets the heart going– at least in this song. “Unbelievable you, impossible me…who fell into you at a quarter of two, with a tear in your eye for the Fourth of July.”
“4th of July” by Aimee Mann
The Fourth can also be a day for heartbreak, as it is in this Aimee Mann tune. If you need to take a time out from the BBQ and let out a little angst, this is a good go-to song. “Today’s the Fourth of July. Another June has gone by and when they light up our town I just think, what a waste of gunpowder and sky.”
“Party in the USA” by Miley Cyrus
Get your red, white, and blue party pants on when this bubblegum pop song starts playing. A girl can feel out of place in a new city. But then, her favorite song starts playing and she realizes that we’re all alike. Common ground! Harmony! Or, you know, just throw your hands up and dance, because it’s a “party in the USA.”
“America is My Home” by James Brown
When you listen to this song, you can’t help but feel the patriotism swell a little in your chest. Something about James Brown crooning, “America is still the best country, and that’s without a doubt,” makes you really believe it.
“This Land is Your Land” by Woody Guthrie
A classic folk song, perfect for a a group sing-along around the fire or while watching the fireworks. Grab a guitar, hold your neighbor’s hand, and start harmonizing. Ready? “This land was made for you and me.”
Have a very happy 4th of July!
