OK, admittedly this is basically a playlist of songs that have "America" or "American" in them. But it's fun! And it doesn't hurt to hear "America" over and over in some great songs on Election Day!
A few of these tunes will get you to dance a little while waiting for election results, like "American Boy" by Estelle and "Kids in America." You can mature over the course of "American Girl" (Tom Petty) to "American Woman" (Lenny Kravitz), and check out both Jay-Z and Elvis Costello's American gangsters. And of course, we end on one of my favorite songs, "Young Americans" by David Bowie.
What are you listening to today (after you vote!)?
