A couple of week's back, we shared Ranker's list of the twenty best state songs -- and had to admit that even though Colorado's finished pretty high, it was hardly a standout.
Now, Spotify has assembled a roster of each state's favorite July 4th song, and unfortunately, Colorado's is among the uncoolest of the batch -- although at least it's original, unlike a certain Lee Greenwood tune that tops the charts in more than twenty places.
