    Songs during fireworks

    Doing a party Sunday night when they will be shooting off fireworks for about 20 minutes. All age groups will be there and I was thinking of a playlist, any suggestions?

    Thanks everyone for your reply. I have a great list of patriotic songs but I was thinking more on the lines of songs like:

    Katy Perry - Firework
    Coldplay - Sky Full Of Stars

    Etc

    Due to lots of wildfires and floods. I would not play Burn Down the House - Talking Heads, or, Light My Fire - Doors.

    But, you could play Lucky Star - Madonna

    You'd send them all to sleep with that lot unless its a retirement home. The firework themes I have done, i played mainly upbeat stuff like a remake of Europe's Final Countdown etc

    You need to be an American to appreciate the list I guess.
