Along the same lines as the last question (kind of), what's some good, patriotic music to listen to fireworks to?

At work, I've been put in charge of making a playlist for our local fireworks, and the two conditions that I was given was that it be patriotic and upbeat. At least a thousand people will be hearing this, so I want to make it fun. (And OF COURSE I was just assigned it this morning.) Problem is, I can only think of a few songs, and I need more! All of my Google searches are turning up only radio websites, and it's not really too much help.
FWIW, so far all I've got is: Stars & Stripes Forever, Born in the USA, Ray Charles - America The Beautiful, Neil Diamond - Coming to America, and a couple others that I'm not really thrilled with. I know there's more but my mind is totally blank. Any help would be really, really appreciated.
(I'm very tempted to play American Idiot, but I don't think that would go over too well with the higher ups. Ha!)
