4 de Julio (Primera Parte)



'God Bless the USA' de Lee Greenwood. Una canción relativamente nueva que los americanos consideran casi como su segundo himno. Salió en 1984 y fue un rotundo éxito. El Presidente Ronald Reagan la utilizó inteligentemente para su reelección en una campaña de anuncios por televisión. La recupero con motivo de este 4 de julio.

If tomorrow all the things were gone,
I’d worked for all my life.
And I had to start again,
with just my children and my wife.

I’d thank my lucky stars,
to be livin here today.
‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom,
and they can’t take that away.

And I’m proud to be an American,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.

From the lakes of Minnesota,
to the hills of Tennessee.
Across the plains of Texas,
From sea to shining sea.

From Detroit down to Houston,
and New York to L.A.
Well there's pride in every American heart,
and its time we stand and say.

That I’m proud to be an American,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.

And I’m proud to be and American,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.

De los anuncios de Reagan me encanta el de Reaganomics vs. Mondalenomics...

En el 84 Reagan contó con gente como Phil Dusenberry, de una importante compañía de estrategias mediáticas y publicidad de Nueva York, que años anets habían hecho los famosos anuncios de Pepsi.

Fue un éxito aquella campaña mediática. Hubo anuncios antológicos. Tanto la publicidad negativa como la positiva.

No me gusta nada la canción, o el cantante más precisamente tal vez...
