What’s the Fourth of July without the essentials? Music essentials, that is. Sure, you can nob on your hot dog, crack a beer and wear an American flag bandeau, but nothing sets the scene quite like the right tunes. So to aid with this dilemma, we at the Clog crafted the perfect Fourth of July playlist to get you dropping your red, white and blue booty to the flo’. These songs are from simpler times in America and remind us all that today we really can have a party in the USA.
