The Widdershins

Archive for July 4th, 2012

Well today is the day we celebrate the birth of our nation and then go out in the heat and pig out on ribs, barbequed chicken, potato salad, barbeque beans, corn on the cob and of course apple pie and ice cream.  I’m sure you will be washing it all down with glasses of iced cold tea either southern sweet tea (which sets my teeth on edge!) or “normal” tea, or perhaps some good lemonade.  After darkness falls, lots of us will probably gather somewhere to watch some fireworks displays, although with so much excessive heat and dryness, personal fireworks displays may be quashed.

So with all of this in mind, let’s listen to some patriotic music, shall we?

This one doesn’t necessarily come to mind for the 4th but George M. Cohan certainly wrote some patriotic songs.

This one is usually heard with a march-type tempo.  I tried to find one with the Boston Pops but couldn’t so I’m using this version with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.  One thing you can say, their diction is clear!

Next, I’ve got one from “The March King” himself, John Philip Sousa, The Washington Post March.

Next up I’ve got one from the great singer Kate Smith, with what was considered one of her signature songs, God Bless America.

Finally, what would a musical 4th of July be without “The Stars and Stripes Forever”.  This one is performed by the Marine Corps Band, also known as “The President’s Own”.

Happy Fourth of July Widdershins! Hope you have a grand old time!!
