Does anyone have suggestions for 4th of July songs. I always play Aimme Mann’s “4th of July” and Springsteen’s entire “The Wild, The Innocent …” . I’d appreciate any other suggestions. I wouldn’t keep the criteria too tight - anything the references the 4th or summer… Thanks for any suggestions,
America - Simon & Garfunkel
America - Neil Diamond
Start Spangled Banner - Jimi
Light It Up - Snoop Dogg
4th of July - Luna (Springsteen cover)
One Nation Under A Groove - Funkadelic
July Flame - Laura Veirs
Irish Rover - The Pogues
James Taylor - On the 4th of July.
from October Road, a great late-career album, if you’re into James Taylor.
Love Lockdown by Macy Gray
Thanks - very eclectic selection!
My favorite is Dave Alvin’s song “4th of July”. Originally done in his band “The Blasters” but I like his more acoustic solo album version (King of California) better.
Include songs about summer ?
Richard Bales’ cantata, The Union
Hamilton Broadway cast album (don’t see this on Qobuz)
1776 Broadway cast album
Canadian Brass: Red, White & Brass (highly recommended)
Yankee Doodle Dandy soundtrack (this isn’t the soundtrack, but it gives a good impression of it)
Creedence - Fortunate Son
If you’re planning to go out: The Police-Don’t stand so close to me.
