Not so sure about Born In The USA. Listen to the words again. Not a very positive song. Nice beat. You can dance to it. I give it an 8.

Lady Of The Harbor- David Crosby
My Country 'Tis Of Thee- David Crosby & Graham Nash
You're A Grand Old Flag- George M. Cohan
God Bless The USA_ Lee Greenwood (even though I'm a atheist).
American Soldier- Toby Keith

I wouldn't use this if I were you. It's a scathing social commentary, not a patriotic anthem. :|

But I would use his 4th of July Asbury Park (Sandy)...for it's poignant 'slice of life' set on the 4th of July at the jersey shore. Not a patriotic song but certainly a song I have already sought out for this weekend.

Stars and Stripes always gets my blood stirring!

I'll take a cue from the good doctor and add Mr. Cohan's, Yankee Doodle Dandy.
A fine song and an even more stirring film. To this day, no one has been able to replicate Cagney's dancing in that film.

I've got it easy, looking at this from far away:

I am a patriot - Little Steven
Land Of Hope & Dreams - Springsteen
Livin' In America - James Brown
Back In The USA (or is it Livin' In The USA?) - Poco did that in 2001 in Littleton I think. I got it on a bootleg ...
