Looking for ideas for your 4th of July party playlist this year? Here are some ideas, in no particular order, that will keep the party going long after the fireworks quiet down:

  • John Mellencamp – “R.O.C.K. in the USA”
  • Counting Crows – “American Girls”
  • Mat Kearney – “Girl America” (great late night summer song)
  • Live – “Merica”
  • Matt Willis – “Sound of America”
  • The Soup Dragons – “I’m Free”
  • Better Than Ezra – “American Dream”
  • James Brown – “Living in America”
  • David Bowie – “Young Americans”
  • Razorlight – “America” (another chill summer evening tune)
  • Phil Vassar – “American Child”
  • George Michael – “Freedom”
  • Elton John – “Philadelphia Freedom”
  • Madonna – “American Life”
  • Andrews Sisters – “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy”
  • Tom Petty – “American Girl”
  • Supertramp – “Breakfast in America”
  • Bree Sharp – “America”

*Note – although some of these songs are not about America per se, or might even be slightly derogatory, they’re still great for a patriotic party!!

What songs am I missing?  Post your suggestions, too!

Have a great 4th of July!
