Hi everyone!

In preparation for Independence Day, I'm going to assemble a patriotic music playlist (boy do I love the internet, lol). Anyway, I'd love to hear you guys' suggestions? Track order is important as well, and if you have a favourite rendition of a song by a particular artist, list that as well :)

I'm aiming for anywhere between 10-20 songs.
I love living in the UK, where you feel like an underdog when you're american, it makes these kinds of songs especially inspiring :D

So far, I've found a good reading of the pledge of allegiance and Declaration of Independence, and of course some essentials like the National Anthem, amazing grace, God Bless the USA (lee greenwood ;) ) and 'This land is our land' (pete seeger).
Can't wait to hear your thoughts...

Independence Day by Martina Mcbride, duh!

07-01-06, 12:59 AM
Actually if you really listen to the words of "Independence Day" it's about a woman trying to get out of an abusive relationship with a drunk. It just so happens she stands up for herself on the Fourth of July. House burns down and kid goes to a county home. Not exactly what I think of as "patriotic."


07-01-06, 05:44 AM
"Arlington" by Trace Adkins and the "Battle Hymn Of The Republic" by anyone.

07-01-06, 04:31 PM
"When Johnny Comes Marching Home"

"As the Caissons Go Rolling Along"

Marines, I can't imagine what the reception to this might be, but I am just replying to the thread, best I can. In 1939, I was 8 years old as Hitler was making his moves. I distinctly remember all of us, young and old alike, were distinctly afraid we (the US) might lose this struggle. And we were all pulling together then, as best we could. One of the popular ballads of the day was: "Heil Blurton, Heil", directed toward Adolph. Sometime much later on, maybe just before Johnny Carson hung them up, I heard Doc Severenson very professionally provide stanzas of this once popular ditty, on the Johnny Carson Show. I remember but won't belabor anyone, does anyone remember this inspiring work? Kindest regards and SF, Gary Hall, Tyler, TX
