Today’s song is the Simon and Garfunkel classic, America, and it seemed appropriate to play this song on the 4th of July. It tells the story of young lovers hitchhiking across America and was inspired by Paul Simon’s 1964 road trip with his girlfriend.

I hope you enjoy this song. To hear more July songs, click here. If it’s your first time on the site, find out more about why I’m trying to record a piano tune every day here.
