Tell Me I'm Your National Anthem

Listen to the sound of steak sizzling on the grill as you wait, chomping at the bit in anticipation. Or if you want, strike up a match/flick a lighter on and countdown until lift-off for that gross of bottle rockets you just bought and can't wait to try out. Plop yourself down in a central air-conditioned heaven and watch your favorite team take the mound. There's no right or wrong way to celebrate freedom and independence, so go crazy (just try not to blow-off any fingers), and enjoy this playlist. Some of the songs are obvious inclusions, and others just sound particularly great on a day like today. Happy 4th!
