Just Keep Swimming

To My American Friends & Readers. . .

Happy Fourth of July, and happy birthday to the good ol' USA. I wish you the exact kind of day that many Canadians had on our country's birthday, which is relaxing and enjoyable. Also hopefully you get to hear some good music and see a few things blow up into pretty colour. Because that is what a country's birthday should be all about. Enjoy the climax to your own long weekend and spend some wonderful time with loved ones.

In celebration of America's day, I decided to pull out one of the classic 80s rock anthems, Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the U.S.A". And yes, I realize the song is actually about the effects the Vietnam War had on Americans, and it isn't a patriotic or even pro-America song. But it's a catchy song and I like it, and hell, most American events or celebrations seem to treat it like the country's anthem. So, why why not play it on the blog.

It could be worse, I could be playing "Keep on Rockin' in the Free World" (the other often confused for patriotism rock song).

Enjoy your day, and kick it off right with "The Boss".
