July 4th Songs

There are tons of July 4th playlists and compilation albums floating around out there on the Internet. Many of them are standard classical lists built to go with a celebratory fireworks display. Others are patriotic in nature, designed to inspire patriotic feelings in the listener. I'm lucky enough to be down here on beautiful Hilton Head Island for this year's 4th of July celebrations and will enjoy a traditional cookout with heavy doses of sand and surf. For a soundtrack I've built this playlist with only one criteria in mind. All of the tracks in this playlist mention the 4th of July holiday in the song title -- whether or not it was directly inspired by the birth of our nation.

Happy birthday America!
