My favorite song about America.

My Fourth of July song is…

“Our Song” by the great American poet Joe Henry, from the album Civilians.

Listen here.

    “Our Song” is a good call (“Civilians” is a great album)! I also nominate Ray Charles’ rendition of “America the Beautiful,”

  • Rick Ro.

    “Elvis Presley and America” by U2.

    “Body of an American” by The Pogues…. “I’m a free born man of the USA”

    I’ll probably have to go with Leonard Cohen’s “Democracy”, seconded by Springsteen’s “Livin’ in the Future” and maybe “The Rising”. For the Boston toast, there’s the Dropkick Murphy’s “Shipping up to Boston”…

    “America” by Simon & Garfunkel is a great one. I also really enjoy “4th of July” by Ben Shive (http://www.rabbitroom.com/?p=911).
