Theme Mix Holiday – Fourth of July Edition

July 4th, 2012

“I’ve lost all ambition for worldly things,” as the first song on this mix states. But in lieu of wanting to actually set things on fire, I’ll throw together a mix in honor of Independence Day.

On a related note, was Elliott Smith a big fan of The Fourth? Between “Roman Candle” and “Independence Day”– as well as the Heatmiser song “Bottle Rocket”, although it’s a Neil Gust track– I wonder.

Loved this YouTube comment on the Jerry Lee Lewis video: “I should flag this as inappropriate – I think I just watched a man make love to a piano.”
