Patriotic Music

Ah, the 4th. I’m not a big fan of most holidays, except the bigger three or four. This ones is definitely up there. Here are a few songs to get you in the mood. These are the songs that lift my spirits and make me think of the meaning of the day. What songs do you like to hear while you’re eating a hot dog, watching fireworks and laying back in a hamock?

Various Patriotic Songs:
James Cagney as George M. Cohan – I love the movie ‘Yankee Doodle Dandy’ always have, I named a donkey George after this movie, strange child – I know. “My mother thanks you, My father thanks you, My sister thanks you, and I thank you.”
