To be honest, all this song shares with the 4th July is the title. But I wanted to post it because it was through art, above all else, that I managed to shed my lobotomised, Michael Moore-adoring anti-American adolescence. Sure, America’s the birthplace of Nixon, both Bushes, Kissinger and Reagan, but it’s also the birthplace of Mark Twain, Joan Didion, Woody Allen, Martin Scorsese, Aretha Franklin and Elliott Smith.

You have to love a country that produces art like this.

Elliott Smith

Update: This is a sight to behold, if only for the fact that he managed to find at least three songs about the state of Delaware.
