The 4th of July is the perfect holiday for picnics, BBQs, and of course fireworks! It’s also a great time to make a playlist just for your guests! Here are a few ways to do it, and some songs to get you started.

Burn a CD! Create your playlist and then burn it to a CD that you can play on repeat during your party. Make it extra fun and burn a copy for your guests to take home with them! With printable discs you can create a one of a kind moment for your guests to enjoy for years to come.

Spotify – It’s easy to create and share playlists on this Internet based service. You can download the free app, and play your list via your iPhone, iPod, or through your computer. This is a great option if you don’t have a large music library, as you can add songs from Spotify’s huge database. There are both free (with commercials) and paid services.

I Heart Radio – This app can be set up on your phone or computer. Let them do the work for you! Input a few songs and this app will create a “radio station” based off of your preferences. Free to use, but you do have to create a user account to save any of your stations.

YouTube – Create playlists using their large database of songs and then play them through your computer. Free to use with or without an account, but if you want to save any lists you do need to make an account.

Song ideas:
America – Neil Diamond
America The Beautiful – Frank Sinatra
