Weekend Playlist: Red, White, And Blue

By Sophie Day in Arts & Entertainment on Jun 28, 2014 6:15PM

You've no doubt noticed that there has been a lot of red, white and blue out and about lately. Not only are we less than a week out from the Fourth of July, but the U.S. Men’s Soccer Team has advanced out of the “Group of Death” in the World Cup. After the U.S. game against Germany on Thursday (which the team unfortunately lost), the have moved on to the Knockout Round and will have the opportunity to continue on. The U.S. will face Belgium in their next game on Tuesday afternoon.

In honor of the team, and to make sure you’re prepared for all of your Independence Day festivities, we’ve put together the perfect playlist to keep you jamming for the next week. We’ve got some new twists on old favorites and hopefully some songs that you haven’t heard before to get you pumped. Whether you’ll be barbecuing, boating, traveling, or just relaxing at home, these songs should make for a great Independence Day.
