Everybody’s doing it. Richard Roeper, as usual, straight channeling the zeitgeist. Here’s mine.

1. “A Change is Gonna Come,” Sam Cooke

2. “The Rising,” Bruce Springsteen

3. “Positive Jam,” the Hold Steady (American history up until now. “all the clustered up clever kids. hold steady.”)

4. “He Got Game,” Public Enemy

5. Symphony No. 4, Charles Ives

6. “The National Anthem,” Radiohead (it reminds me of Ives)

7. “Psalm 90,” Charles Ives

8. Symphony No. 1, William Grant Still
