"The Star Spangled Banner"  By Madison Rising ~ the original Lead Singer and another band member are USA Veterans

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c8C7i9kdEf8

 

This is another song by this band which is tough to watch (for those who don't want to watch).  It's dedicated to our brave men and women in blue.  It's called - "Last Call" (A Tribute to Fallen Officers)

I agree! Most thrilling to hear and has me humming it for days afterwards. The most beautiful part is when the flute plays its' fantastic solo midway....it's enough to bring tears to my eyes. The Untied States Marine Band plays this the best of any band I have ever heard.

"God Bless the U.S.A.," Lee Greenwood

"America, I Love You" as sung by Alice Faye and John Payne in the 20th Century Fox musical "Tin Pan Alley" (1940). Composed by Archie Gottler and Edgar Leslie, this older song was brought to new, fantastic life in a stirring, awesome, Alfred Newman arrangement, although the staging is hokey in parts. Hardly any knows this, but it's fantastic. See it on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUK8fHFuLOg

“Your a Grand Old Flag” by George M. Cohan.  I leaned it in 3rd grade.  James Cagney’s version is the best known of course.

Mine is more of a Hymn. This was my Dads favorite first. He served in the Army Air Corps in WWII as an Airplane Mechanic a lot of the time in the Middle East. He was very active in the different churches we joined (he was an Architect and we traveled to a number of states when he was sent to supervise the construction). The Battle Hymn of the Republic. Everytime I hear it it brings tears to my eyes because of all of the times we would sit and talk about his time in the Service and taught me all about what Patriotism meant to him and I.

The Battle Hymn of the Republic is my favorite too.  I can't listen to it with tears.  It always causes emotion.
