To go along with my previous post about Maine and Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the USA.” I thought I'd share a few songs that I think are quintessentially American and are good for the 4th of July or good for listening anytime.

Some songs are traditional for the 4th, others are just American at heart.

I wrestle with whether to include Springsteen’s “Born in the USA” as it is a protest song more than a flag waver, but it will make the list.

So here we go!
