Patriotism is coursing through America’s veins today, so it seems appropriate to give a #MusicMonday nod to our country. While this list isn’t anywhere near comprehensive, hopefully it will put you in the American spirit. Enjoy!

Take it away, Whitney…

Whitney Houston – “The Star Spangled Banner”

Ray Charles – “America The Beautiful”

Always reminds me of The Sandlot.

Bruce Springsteen – “Born in the USA”

John Mellencamp – “Pink Houses”

SSgt. Barry Sadler – “Ballad of the Green Beret”

A classic.

John Philip Sousa – “Stars and Stripes Forever”

Performed by the New York Philharmonic, conducted by Leonard Bernstein

Simon and Garfunkel – “America”

Jimi Hendrix – The Star Spangled Banner

A classic take on the National Anthem.
