I'm a big believer in the ability of a new playlist to totally revamp your workout routine, but sometimes all you need is one or two songs to do the trick. With the Fourth of July this week, there's no better time to bring a little American boost to your playlist repertoire with some catchy, Summer-friendly tunes that will get you in a healthy Independence Day spirit. For those of us who pine for the classic American rock 'n' roll spirit, Tom Petty, John Mellencamp, and Bruce Springsteen will help you out, but for all the fun pop-lovers out there, we've got a healthy dose of Katy Perry and mashup master Girl Talk!
