Some suggestions for state songs.


Now, I know every state already has a state song. But I heard a song on the radio yesterday about a particular state (I didn’t include that one here because its theme isn’t very pleasant) and I got to thinking, how about if some states were to change their state songs to something more relevant, more tuneful, or just different?

Here are my suggestions:

SC “Myrtle Beach Days”

Alabama “Sweet Home Alabama” (of course)

Kentucky “Blue Moon of Kentucky”

Delaware “What Did Delaware?”

Oklahoma “Oklahoma Hills” (OK, I know it’s the state folk song. But I think it ought to beat out Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “Oklahoma.”

Kansas “Dust in the Wind”

California "Surfin USA"


Louisiana "Born on the Bayou"
