Bomb Pops and Fireworks

1 Jul

Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays.  While our history is sometimes bleak and horrid, our future doesn’t have to be, and that is a nice thought. But it’s not just a day, it is an entire weekend of celebrating- of swimming and bar-b-queing, of dancing and fireworks.  I love the holidays that involve getting everyone together for a party and a meal- but unlike Thanksgiving where angry families bicker across the table while wearing formal attire, the Fourth of July is a holiday set to be celebrated outdoors with beer koozies and hot dogs on sticks.

This year, because of all the wildfires burning across my state, I will be boycotting fireworks but that doesn’t mean I won’t be having fun and causing trouble.  Each year, I parade around in a myriad of red, white, and blue outfits and I see no reason to change my habit now.  Excited for this year’s dress? Yes I am.  Prepared for the agony my shoes will cause? Always.

In honor of our nation’s independence, I present you with my favorite super cheesy songs about the United States- or something like that.

Neil Diamond – America

James Brown – Living in America

Tom Petty – American Girl

Neil Young – Keep on Rockin’ in the Free World

Don McClean – American Pie

Paul Simon – America

Bruce Springsteen – Born in the USA

David Bowie – Young Americans

Grand Funk Railroad – American Band

Ray Charles- America the Beautiful
