today, we celebrate our independence with cookouts, backyard keg parties, red white and blue budweiser cans and massive fireworks displays. july 4th. some people think it’s the best holiday on the calendar…and for some reason, i’m starting to agree.

rather than wax poetically on the reasons why i love the great u.s and a, i decided to choose a few key songs that might become the soundtrack to your afternoon, this sunny monday. they’re in no particular order and for some you might have to search for the patriotic flair, but it’s there…trust me. i was going to include them as some sort of download, but i’m being lazy.

if you like them, go to and download them for free…or spend the .99 cents (like a good american) over at apple and pick them up. either way, enjoy and happy 4th of july!
