Happy Fourth

Simon & Garfunkel – America
I know I keep posting this, but of all the songs about America, it might be my favorite. It’s not a big patriotic bombast sort of song (not that there’s anything wrong with that; I do love me a Sousa march), it’s a quiet little song about the pull so many of us feel to get out there and hit the road to “look for America” while looking for ourselves.

Ray Charles – America the Beautiful
And another quiet song. The beauty of Ray Charles’ performance of this song is incomparable.

(Sorry again for the radio silence; this time I spent a week working on painting the living room. It is finally done.)
