It seems nearly impossible to have a celebration without fireworks to round off a beautiful summer's eve, now doesn't it? I recently found something that might be fun -- a list of the 50 most popular songs people have recommended to go with fireworks.
Included in that list are a few personal favourites, including Music for Royal Fireworks by Handel, Chariots of Fire by Vangelis, Star Wars Theme, Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture, Zadok the Priest, to name a few. You might find your own favourites listed here.
Wishing my fellow Canadian a Happy Canada Day
and everyone a beautiful July ahead,
PS Next post will be from England
