Some songs that Americans consider to stand for our ideals:
Our National Anthem, one of the most difficult to sing because it requires a very wide voice note range - The "Star Spangled Banner" performed by Leanne Rimes:

For those who celebrate it in any fashion - Happy Independence Day - July 4th, 2011 -- 235 years old!!
We certainly have our problems, but I wouldn't live anywhere else - in the world.

We missed a special day for our neighbors to our north - Happy Canada Day - July 1st, 2011

Have a fantastic week!

You know I can hum along the S&S since 1966 when my mom brought home a brand-new TV set (National-De-Luxe) from which we could watch the American Channel reserved for its army here. No problem humming along with any songs I heard then...
I can even hum it for you right now out of memory... hehe.
