Happy Fourth!!


fireworks

The weather has New England feeling a little wet this Fourth but when have we ever let the weather stop us?!? The Pops and Beach Boys performed last night in Boston. I didn’t make it back into the city, but I did catch a clip on the news this morning and it looked like a great time. My half-sister said the fireworks were fantastic too!

Since it is the Fourth and there are hundreds of songs that are about this fine country of ours, I wanted to put together a little post with some of the most popular songs. I took some polls, got some results and then hit up the ol’ Googles and complied some lists. The winners were on the most Google lists and voted for the most by you! Check out the results!

TOP TEN MOST PATRIOTIC SONGS

10. Whitney Houston – National Anthem
