Song of the day

This Friday is Independence Day, so I thought a week of songs for America was a good idea.  Since I probably wont be writing on Friday, I am going to have four songs.

My first pick is Born in the U.S.A by Bruce Springsteen.  Now, this is not, as the title might suggest, a big patriotic song (although Ronald Regan would have had you believe that it was).  Rather it is a song of protest about the struggles of the Vietnam Veterans when they came back to America.  I choose to put a protest song in this group of four because the ability to write, record and sell songs such as this is what makes America great.

Enjoy!

I cannot find a youtube of this that is embeddable, so here is a link to the video.

As and extra bonus, here is how the Boss is singing this song today!
