U.S. Express – Real American

I was contacted last week about DJ’ing in Chengdu at an Olympics-themed event that’s featuring DJ’s from 8 different countries. Naturally, I’ll be there repping the US. Since I already have my flag and bandana ready to go (from Big Love Music Festival), I agreed to participate right away and began thinking about which songs to include in the ultimate set of ironic DJ patriotism. Here’s what’s on the playlist so far:
