I'll kick things off:

If this song is taken as a metaphor, merry olde England goes on to make some arguably more interesting albums but America cuts a very lovely folk record and also makes "Start Choppin'", which should kinda take its place alongside "God Bless America" as unofficial national songs.

One of the first that came to mind was "Live Free" by Son Volt from that great first record...

Someday we'll be together,
Farther south than the train line,
The Delta mud will be there.
We're just living this way,
Because we know no other.

When we're all passed over,
The rhythm of the river will remain.
And it will... and it will remain.

Looking for the right kind of live free or die...

But then I thought of Morphine and that great "I'm Free Now" from Cure for Pain.

And the Kinks "Gotta Be Free" from Lola, but they're Brits, so that doesn't count. Same for the Kinks-sounding La's "Freedom Song".

And I listen to that Mazzy Star debut a lot, and just listened to it a couple days ago, and there's cool little song near the end called "Free" ...

Free in the wind that surrounds me
I'm not afraid to sleep in the night
Not afraid,
To sleep in the night

Sorry, no videos today for me.

Then there's that infectious little tune by the Rave Recs favorite Threadkiller, "Free Your Monkey, and Your Ass Will Follow". I'll try to find some youtube, but it may not be pretty.

Happy (somewhat belated) 4th of July to my American friends! My contribution comes from Cat Power's - You Are Free...


Everbody come together
Everybody get together

It's ok If ya can't stand to let her dance
It's ok it's your right
Come on and take a chance
To romance when ya dance


A beautiful, albeit melancholy, album, which I can't believe, is from 10 years ago!

Miss you all! ~ Snowie
