The 4th of July is the date when America celebrates its freedom. People enjoy the holiday with picnics, parades, and fireworks displays. One thing that these celebrations will have in common is music.
We all know that “The National Anthem” will be played throughout the day, but several other patriotic songs will be played as fireworks shows and parties reach their crescendos.
I’ve put together playlist of some of my 4th of July favorites. Some of the songs are patriotic. Others have a party vibe.
