4th of July Music/Songs

Fellow Americans (or non-Americans who actually open this thread and want to respond),

What music/songs do you think are good for listening to on the 4th? I'd like to hear your opinions, whether they're obvious or not so obvious.


Here are some I've thought of:

Jimi Hendrix - 'Star Spangled Banner'
U2 - 'Heartland'
U2 - '4th of July'
Bruce Springsteen - 'Born in the USA'
Moby - 'Fireworks'
Morrissey - 'America Is Not the World'



Please, someone mention Neil Diamond

"America", a good but obscure song by Paul Kantner from 1986.

"America" by Simon and Garfunkel

"In America" by CDB

"Suite Madame Blue" by Styx

"Saturday in the Park" Chicago

They Come To America!... Neil Friggin Diamond.

Drifters of the world, have a safe weekend.

I would mention American Woman, but a band from Winnipeg doesn't count.

Young Americans- David Bowie.
