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.
