Help needed finding a Music CD!

In preparation for our holidays to America this year - we were hoping to buy a CD containing songs about America such as

Living in America, Born in the USA, American Woman, Philladelphia even etc

I have had a search and can't find a compilation album - does anyone know of an album that does this?

Rep for anyone who can help!

Thankyou very much


I don't recall one, why not just make your own compilation?

Yes we could do this - I was hoping we could cheat though! I can't believe it's never been done


Yes we could do this - I was hoping we could cheat though! I can't … Yes we could do this - I was hoping we could cheat though! I can't believe it's never been done

I'm not saying it hasn't, I just haven't seen it myself.

if you decide to make your own, try ] and search for songs containing the word 'America' and it will bring up loads.

Good luck

Just buy a couple of Bruce Springsteen albums :thumbsup:
