Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July, everybody!

While the songs in this video roundup aren’t always about patriotism in a traditional sense or necessarily about today’s holiday itself — they’re sad, joyous, uplifting, and even angry and disillusioned — they share a yearning for personal freedom that goes well beyond the meaning of the term as thrown around by the pundits lately. It’s your independence day, after all, so spend it the way you want!
