Don't Leave These Songs Off Your 4th Of July Playlist!
It's finally the 4th of July, and whether you're spending your Independence Day on the beach, by the pool or chilling inside, you're going to need the perfect playlist. We're here to make the process easy with the ultimate patriotic playlist!
"And I don't really care if nobody else believes/ Cuz I've still got a lot of fight left in me"
Start the party off right with a song that will make you feel like you can take on anything! The 4th of July is a celebration of the U.S.'s fight for independence, and we're pretty positive our founding fathers would have appreciated Rachel Platten's big message.
Fifth Harmony – "Miss Movin' On"
"My whole world was electrified/ Now I'm not longer afraid / It's Independence Day."
"Miss Movin' On" is all about learning to be a strong, independent woman, so it's the perfect match on a playlist about celebrating freedom.
"You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine/ Just own the night like the 4th of July"
No 4th of July celebration is complete without a night sky full of fireworks. They're bright, colorful and loud, which is kind of the perfect representation of what it means to be empowered. And who doesn't love this song?
Miley Cyrus – "Party In the USA"
"Got my hands up, they're playin' my song/ And now I'm gonna be okay/ Yeah, it's a party in the USA"
We're pretty sure leaving "Party In the USA" off your Independence Day playlist is illegal.
"You light me up inside like the 4th of July/ Whenever you're around I always seem to smile"
"Shower" is not only the ultimate dance track (that's going to be stuck in your head all day!) but it specifically mentions the holiday. Obvious choice!
Cimorelli – "Made In America"
"I pledge allegiance to the home of the brave/ Blue jeans, ball caps, and football games/ Fireworks outside on the 4th of July/ Summer night barbecue, bring the apple pie"
We dare you to find a patriotic track that's more fun than "Made In America"!
"You and me are meant to be/ Like a brand new board and the awesomest wave"
Even if your friends aren't familiar with Teen Beach 2, they won't be able to resist marching to the beat of "Gotta Be Me." It's the ultimate summer track, complete with surf similes.
Austin Mahone – "Say Somethin'"
"When we talk girl fireworks something like the 4th of July/ You're super hot fire hot"
If you're like us and are pining over your summer crush, you're definitely going to relate.
Selena Gomez – "Summer's Not Hot"
"The heat is blazing like the 4th of July/ I got the air con' on and it's blasting on high"
Need a blast of nostalgia on your playlist? "Summer's Not Hot" may be 5 years old, but it's just as catchy as ever and sure to get everyone moving.
5 Seconds Of Summer – "Independence Day"
"This is my independence day/ I'm moving on, there's no excuse"
It may seem counterintuitive to stick this Aussie track on the list, but like "Miss Movin' On," it's all about becoming self-reliant, and independence is the name of the game today.
"I'm miles away from seeing you/ I can see the stars/ From America/ I wonder, do you see them, too?"
Finish off the night with this romantic and totally angsty song from The Fault In Our Stars and some sparks are sure to fly!
