Hey, Happy Birthday America (the obligatory holiday post)

Happy 4th of July everyone. Hope it’s a peaceful one, free of trouble, strife and rain. Even as a sometime-cynic and generally critical person, and despite all the problems we all have with it, I can safely say that I’m damn happy to be living in this country. Here are some fun tracks about (or slightly about) the good old U.S. of A, some reverential, some not-so-much, all great.

Ted Leo & The Pharmacists – Shake the Sheets (Buy It)

Patton Oswalt – America, the Retarded Trust-Fund Kid (Buy It)

Stevie Wonder – He’s Misstra Know-It-All (Buy It)

Spirit – America, the Beautiful/The Times They Are A’Changin’ (Buy Spirit music)

And here’s just a reminder that NO ONE makes a better cake of their flag than Americans. We’ve got our eye on you, Portugal
