Tribute - Videos About America
This is a Memorial Day tribute to what
our soldiers have always fought
and died for - America, but defining America has always been difficult
To me, America stands for the freedom of the individual and freedom from
ignorance, tyranny, bureaucracy, disease, repression and a poisoned
environment. Of course, everyone has their own vision or image of
America and that is what this post is all about. I wasn't sure what
I'd find, but these were most interesting and thought provoking music videos that I found on
YouTube when searching for "America".
Waylon Jennings - America
I had not seen this video before, but I really it and the positive vision
it projects for America.
Simon and Garfunkel - America (Live)
This is classic great song about the search for "America" by Simon and
Garfunkel live in Central Park.

Rammstein - Amerika
This is a fascinating video by the German group
Rammstein. This is
another song I hadn't heard before. It lampoons American global
commercialism, power and effect on the world as viewed externally. There is also
an English version
West Side Story - America
This is a wonderful classic clip from West Side Story featuring
Rita Moreno that
presents an immigrant view of life in a white America.

Razorlight - America
Actually, I got the idea for this post when I was reading about

That's when I found the group
found this song about America from a UK-Swedish perspective on YouTube.

American institution Ray Charles.

who are not living in American, but
