Fourth of July Playlist


This list is dedicated to Tim Howard, who showed the world what being a goalie is all about. What does that have to do with the 4th of July? Nothing except timing. What does Tim Howard have to do with music? Nothing. Although I do sort of feel about him the way I feel about Tom Morello.

Anyway, enjoy the long weekend. Enjoy the fragile freedom of independence. Enjoy being American, even though we are a messy, crazy bunch. Just like this playlist.

    The Lumineers and the Avett Brothers are two of my favorites! Springsteen, of course! I’m too lazy today to think up a list, so, thanks to you and Spotify, I’ll just listen to your list. Thanks, Maria, once again. And I hope you get to see some amazing Fireworks on the 4th!
