America: Apple pie, baseball, democracy, and digital audio players. Launching on May 26 (but available for pre-order now), the $35.99 ZVUE Spirit is an MP3 player preloaded with 15 of the most patriotic songs ever. How patriotic, you may ask? So patriotic that James Brown and Lynyrd Skynyrd made the list TWICE.
The Spirit has 1GB of memory on-board so you can load it up with other songs too. It’s got a DRM-like feature that can tell whether or not the music you’re trying to load onto it is patriotic, though, so don’t try to transfer anything that wasn’t written, performed, and popularized here in the US or the player will burst into American flames.
The full song list includes:
1. I Feel Good. James Brown
2. Back In The U.S.A. Chuck Berry
3. Sweet Home Alabama. Lynyrd Skynyrd
4. Drive South. John Hiatt
5. XXX’s And OOO’s (An American Girl). Trisha Yearwood
6. Fly Like An Eagle. The Neville Brothers
7. Rocky Mountain Way. Joe Walsh
8. Takin’ Care Of Business. Bachman-Turner Overdrive
9. Simple Man. Lynyrd Skynyrd
10. Rock And Roll All Nite. Kiss
11. (You Can Still) Rock In America. Night Ranger
12. America Is My Home (Part 1). James Brown & The Famous Flames
13. Free Bird. Lynyrd Skynyrd
14. Some Gave All. Billy Ray Cyrus
15. God Bless The U.S.A. Lee Greenwood
No Neil Diamond? What?!
