Independence Day Thoughts Set to Music

Happy July 4th!  Today, we, along with half of the country, will be heading out to watch fireworks to celebrate Independence Day.  Where Warped One and I go, they have a nice little grassy area (better to sit and bake on in this 110 degree heat) and they always have a couple of bands play prior to the fireworks extravaganza.  Then, of course, during the show (fireworks) there is music playing to accompany the fireworks as they explode in the sky.  The songs they play are always pretty much the same… some pop fare, and the obligatory Neil Diamond “America” and Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the USA”.  This year, there are a few songs I’d love to hear them include, but it will never happen…  those songs are:

“Dear Mr. President” by Pink.  Such a poignant song.

“Bring ‘Em Home” by Bruce Springsteen.  What an amazing cover of the Pete Seeger classic, with some timely updates.

“Pennsylvania Stars” by Paul Hipp. 

and lastly, “Livin’ In The Future” by Bruce Springsteen.  What a frightening future that is…

Happy 4th of July.  May our soldiers be safe and may this unlawful occupation end swiftly and safely.

    Ditto! How’s that for thoughtful commentary?

    I was going to watch a few holiday specials on TV and see how things were being spun withdrawal-wise, but I fell asleep at 8 PM and missed everything, including the thunderstorm.
