Five Songs: Special Fourth-of-July Edition
Five Songs is not dead: It just smells funny.
- Yes, "America" (apologies to Paul Simon)
- X, "Fourth of July" ("whatever happened, I apologize")
- The Nice (featuring Keith Emerson), "America" (off Keith Emerson & the Nice; studio version below) (apologies to Leonard Bernstein)
- Toby Keith, "Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue" (no apologies)
- Wilco, "Ashes of American Flags" ("I know I would die if I could come back new")
