Happy Birthday, America! You're 241 Years Old Today!!
Well it's that time of year again! People all over this nation will be celebrating the birth of America! And let's face it, no celebration is complete without music!
So turn your speakers up and let's celebrate the Fourth of July!!
A perfect song for a day outside.
WAR's "All Day Music"
"People Got to Be Free" by The Rascals
Have to throw in a couple of Trini Lopez classics.
His cover of West Side Story's "America."
"This Land Is Your Land"
Jay & The American's - "Only In America"
Seattle's own Jimi Hendrix tearing the "Star Spangled Banner" up at Woodstock
No list is complete without this classic by Don McLean
“America the Beautiful” by The Great Ray Charles
Like Jimi and Ray, Stevie Wonder puts his spin on an American Classic. What I love is the integrity of the songs are not compromised but nothing less than memorable. “Blowin’ in the Wind”
"America" by Neil Diamond - I love this song!!
So much power in it!
Elton John's "Philadelphia Freedom"
This song has to be part of this girl's list!
The Godfather of Soul; Mr. James Brown singing "Living in America!"
Saturday In The Park - EVERYDAY'S THE FOURTH OF JULY!!
I hope you and yours have a great 4th! And don't forget to turn up the music!
