Starting things off at No. 10 Martina McBride with "Independence Day."

Martina released her single in May of 1994 which initially addressed domestic violence but became associated as a patriotic song due to the chorus “Let Freedom Ring.” Many Politicians and media figures have used this song over the years.

No. 9 on our list is "Hey Mr. DJ," by the group Zhane, released in August of 1993.

"Hey Mr. DJ" peeked out at No. 6 on the Billboard charts. I can still play this song in any crowd and they will still groove to it.

No. 8 is "Rockin’ in the USA" by KISS, released in November of 1977.

Nothing says "America" like classic rock, "Rockin in the USA" gets the blood flowing and the adrenaline pumping.

No. 7 on the Top-10 must-have songs for any July 4 event is "All-American Girl" by Carrie Underwood, released in December of 2007.

Carrie loosely made a song about her life and how she overcame certain stereotypes. All-American Girl made it all the way to No. 1 on the Billboard chart.

The No. 6 song for our list is "No Diggity" by Blackstreet, released in July of 1996.

"No Diggity" ended Los del Río‘s Macarena’s 14-week run at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Number 5 is Usher’s "Yeah" ft. Lil Jon and Ludacris.

"Yeah" was released in January of 2004 and stayed at No. 1 for 12 weeks.

The No. 4 song is Don McLean’s "American Pie," released in 1971.

This song is an excellent crowd-pleaser because everyone knows the chorus:

“Bye, bye, Miss American Pie,

Drove my Chevy to the levee,

But the levee was dry.”

No. 3 on the list is Beyonce’s "Single Ladies," better known as “Put a ring on it.”

Queen B brings everyone to the dance floor and Single Ladies topped the charts in December of 2008.

Getting closer to the top of our list, coming in at No. 2 for your July 4 party is TLC’s "Creep."

TLC released "Creep" in October of 1994 and it stayed at No. 1 for four weeks.


The No. 1 song on our list?


The song that's guaranteed to get everyone on the dance floor for your July 4 party is Flo Rida's "Low."

Released in October of 2007, "Low" was the longest-running No. 1 song of 2008.

These songs will make anyone’s July 4th playlist a hit.
