Elliott Smith//Independence Day, Aimee Mann//4th of July

It’s a long summer holiday weekend, guys. You know what that means? Beaches and BBQs. You know what else? No post tomorrow. Instead, please accept this hearty double dose of sonic celebration.

Also, for those of you in NYC looking for another form of sonic celebration, fireworks are on the Hudson this year; not the East River.

There are an awful lot of songs about the Fourth of July. Here are two of my favorites:

Independence Day.mp3, Elliott Smith

4th of July.mp3, Aimee Mann

I’ll meet you hear tomorrow;
Independence Day.


Today’s the 4th of July.
Another June has gone by
And when they light up our town,
I just think,
What a waste of gunpowder and sky.
