There are few things I like more than Independence Day. You get to spend a long weekend being unapologetically patriotic while listening to Kid Rock wearing our colors along with the people you love. Don’t believe me? Well here’s a picture of me sitting in a perfectly manicured lawn covered in “John McCain Freedom Notes” while straddling Old Glory.
And yes, I’m well aware that I was going through a fat stage. I grilled a lot of cheese-stuffed brats from the farmer’s market that summer.
One of my fondest 4th of July memories was back in 2009: waking up with a wicked hangover, I frantically scrambled to create an Independence Day playlist before our 10 a.m. party began. Sunburned, beaten down, and bruised, I sat on the toilet ignoring BBMs only to craft a playlist that would have made even our Founding Fathers say, “Hey, toss me another cold one. I’m peaking right now.” Well, today, I did it again.
If anyone’s looking for me before Monday, I’ll be the guy listening to the above songs while maximizing his chill in an inappropriately low unbuttoned shirt with a rope hat on next to a large body of water surrounded by fellow patriots. I’d suggest you do the same.
Have any additions? Just let me know and I can update at my discretion because that’s the beauty of Spotify. I’m here to please. To go directly to the playlist and subscribe, look no further. .
