On this 4th of July weekend, the thought’s of independence and grilled burgers come to mind (not necessarily in that order). With Republican governors flouting the will of the people to benefit the wealthy at their expense and Republicans in the House threatening economic destruction if they don’t get to do the same on a national basis, the people are rising up.
Independence Day is coming at a very appropriate time, just when we need to remember how important it is to be a free people and not dominated by the powerful few. So this weekend’s theme is about being American and our belief in freedom and independence. So whether it’s a song about America or doing your own unique thing, show your independence by posting whatever songs speak to you.
This Land is Your Land – Pete Seeger and Bruce Springsteen (celebrating Obama’s Inauguration)
America – Simon and Garfunkel
Rockin’ in the Free World – Neil Young
American Girl – Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
For What It’s Worth – Buffalo Springfield (Cheers WhatsThatSound!)
Revolution – The Beatles
Your turn to declare your independence and share your songs…feel free!
