In honor of Wednesday’s Fourth of July holiday, we’re putting together a playlist that will compliment all of your Independence Day festivities.
We’ve started the list off with a batch of our favorite tunes — among them are Katy Perry’s “Firework,” Lenny Kravitz’s “American Woman” and (perhaps the most obvious) Mariah Carey’s ethereal ballad, “Fourth of July.”
Put your suggestions in the comments or tweet them using the hash tag #July4playlist and we’ll add them to our playlist.
Need inspiration? Our pop music critic, Chris Richards, helped WNYC Soundcheck put together a Fourth of July playlist. You can listen to them explain their picks in a podcast here.
