a patriotic playlist

This playlist has all of the classics for Independence Day. Beyond Sousa's Stars and Stripes Forever, it includes Copland's Hoe Down (you know this one, it's the "Beef its What's for Dinner" Song), and my personal favorite, George M. Cohan's Yankee Doodle Dandy. The entire Yankee Doodle Dandy soundtrack is included starting at track 18. I'm especially excited for the first track on the playlist. While looking for a good recording of  "Battle Hymn of the Republic," I stumbled a recording that Judy Garland did on television. It's perfect. You can automatically access this Patriotic Playlist in its entirety on Spotify, or I'm including the entire list below:
