Although I haven’t travelled the world or been to all 50 American states, I love America. Not everything about it, not all parts of the country, nor all of the people – far from all of these things – but I love my home, the beautiful places I’ve visited here, and the freedoms and opportunities Americans are provided with.
In celebration of my favorite country’s birthday (I apologize for this belated Happy Birthday Glorious US and A – Borat, I quote you), here is my Thursday Top Five – one for good luck. This week’s theme: youth and home. Aged 236 as of yesterday, America is youthful, comparatively, and most importantly my home.
Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros – Home
Daughter – Youth (British band, but I had to put this one in…)
Radical Face – Welcome Home
Santigold – Disparate Youth
Matisyahu – Youth
