Happy Independence Day everyone, “You look like the fourth of July!”
Whilst you may not be dressed in head to toe red, white and blue and singing along to Star Spangled Banner , we cannot help but throw in a reference to ‘Legally Blonde’. After all, when else can we repeat those lines?
In celebration of 4th July, we have compiled a list of songs which, we feel, sum up everything glorious and great about America. The best thing about American music is that it is so rich in emotion. It can be proud, patriotic, angry or even a little bit disenchanted. We have combined the lot in a little playlist for you so that you can have your taste of Americana wherever you are in the world.
