Independence Day (or the Fourth of July) is one of the most revered holidays in the United States because it memorializes the day the U.S. declared independence from Great Britain by adopting the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776.
We celebrate this monumental day by joining together as a nation and expressing our patriotism through parades, barbecues, and fireworks.
To aid in the festivities, we’ve created a list of the Top Ten Songs About Freedom & Lovin’ The American Life.
10. “America”-[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Simon & Garfunkel[/lastfm]
Simon & Garfunkel’s iconic song about living an American life is a huge reminder of all the small things we take for granted in the land of the free and the home and the brave:
Kathy, I’m lost,” I said, though I knew she was sleeping/”I’m empty and aching and I don’t know why”/Counting the cars on the New Jersey Turnpike/They’ve all come to look for America/All come to look for America/All come to look for America
