Fourth of July: A Breakdown of America's Favorite Patriotic Songs by State
Spotify's The Echo Nest took a look at what songs the residents of each state played the most on Independence Day 2013.
Is your favorite America-themed song "God Bless the USA"? If so, then chances are you live in the Midwest or the South.
What about Miley Cyrus' "Party in the U.S.A"? Then you probably live in the Northeast.
At least that's according to a study conducted by Paul Lamere,director of developer platform for Spotify subsidiary The Echo Nest. He looked at data from the Fourth of July 2013 to determine what song the residents of each state listened to most compared with the previous week.
While Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the USA" was song that popped up in the most states, other songs that were tops in various states included Whitney Houston's version of "The Star-Spangled Banner," Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the U.S.A.," John Mellencamp's "R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A." and "America F--k Yeah" by Team America.
