The Friday Five: July 4th Playlist

It’s a holiday weekend and no matter what your plans are, let’s celebrate #Murica with these five songs that should definitely be on your 4th of July playlist.

1. “Young in America” – Danielle Bradbery
There is nothing more American than country music, and we love the new single from country’s sweetheart Danielle Bradbery.  The video features the common #Merica theme of a road trip, with lots of American flags waving.

2.  “Light Me Up” – Hunter Hayes
“Baby you light me up like the fireworks flying on the 4th of July!”  Hunter will be performing on the Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular on NBC this year, and we hope he’ll be bringing back this track from his  “Encore” album, and playing his new single “Tattoo!”  Since most of the East Coast will be dealing with Hurricane Arthur tomorrow, at least now you won’t have to feel bad if your July 4th plans revolve around staying in to watch Hunter perform!   Other performers include Miranda Lambert, Ariana Grande & Lionel Richie.

3. “American Dream” – MKTO
MKTO’s American Dream Tour got its name from their new single, which the guys just performed on Good Morning America.  But this isn’t the same summer song you used to know.  MKTO question what ever happened to the American Dream, and why Jack left Diane.  They were Born to Run Cali here we come.  (The song is also extremely catchy and quotable…sounds like the perfect summer song to us!)

4. “Made in The USA” – Demi Lovato
As far as “songs about America” go, this one was made to be on your 4th of July playlist.  Name dropping Chevy?  Check. Because aren’t all good things “Made in the USA?” Demi’s video for this song is also very American:  girl meets boy at a carnival and they fall in love. What’s more American than meeting the love of your life at a carnival!?  Nothing. That’s what.

5.  “Make It In America” – Victoria Justice
This is the ultimate summer road trip song and video, featuring the entire cast of Victorious!  Another requisite for making a #Merica song is apparantly referencing “Born to Run.”  Which should already be on your playlist.  “I wanna taste the sun case baby I’m Born to Run!” 

BONUS: “Party In The USA” – Miley Cyrus
No matter how hard she tries….Miley will never be able to erase this song from the internet or her discography.  It reaches the Top 10 on iTunes every 4th of July so she can’t complain too much.  This song had a bunch of parodies and spoofs but our favorite is “Party In The F.I.P.”  Watch it below in case you’ve been under a rock for the past 5 years.
