Mystery Mix-CD 19: America!
This round the pick is “America!” - I made this CD in 2001, shortly after September 11th. I was also a 21yr old Sergeant in the Army at the time. Safe to say that patriotism was running through my blood at full throttle during this time. It was also a time before I appreciated the intricacies of protest songs and the lyrics within them. (See: Springsteen or Buffalo Springfield)
One last note, Buffalo Springfield is filled with Canadians, I had no idea at the time.
