Evangeline is very patriotic

Today, after I started chanting Allen Ginsberg’s “America” in my head I decided to put me out of my misery and just listen to it already. It was while thumbing through the songs that I realized I have a lot of American music. To wit:

  • America, Self
  • America, Simon & Garfunkel
  • America (Closing Time) Tom Waits & Allen Ginsberg
  • America the Beautiful, Frank Sinatra
  • America the Beautiful, Neil Young
  • American Car, Mike Doughty
  • American Dream, Lucinda Williams
  • American Dreaming, Dead Can Dance
  • American Gigolo, Weezer
  • American Girl, Soul Coughing & Weezer
  • American Girl, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
  • American Girl, Of Montreal (a cover of the Tom Petty song)
  • American Girls, Counting Crows
  • American Music, The Hold Steady
  • American Music, Violent Femmes
  • America Pie, Don McLean

I was surprised to discover that I don’t have Neil Diamond’s “America.” Wonders never cease.

    You need to get Robyn Hitchcock’s “America” as well.

    Happy Old Year’s Day. (I’m trying to get December 31st into a full day off as well, and it starts with the getting that name to catch on.)
