    I agree 100 percent. Macy’s choice of music was abysmal. Instead of the appropriate patriotic music they played really bad pop music. Four Usher songs? Really? I guess their new target demographic is 14 year old little girls. Was it America’s birthday or Ushers? Next thing you know, Jay-zee will replace Santa Claus at the end of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. Ouch!

    A Capitol Fourth on PBS was much better than Macy’s. You would think that for the Macy’s fireworks that they would have dubbed in patriotic music – not the crap you can hear on the radio any day that detracted from the show. I turned off the volume, put on my own music and watched the show.

      I agree and I thought exactly the same thing. A Capitol Fourth was much, much better than Macy’s; so much so, that instead of watching Macy’s rerun at 10, we switched back & watched the rerun of A Capitol Fourth. As you said, Macy’s lack of patriotic music was off-putting. Even my 16 year old, who loves pop punk, agreed that the music on Macy’s show was crap! We did really miss Pops Goes the Fourth with the Boston Pops this year though. It too was far superior to Macy’s. Unfortunately CBS disagreed and dumped them. The Boston Pops show was a tradition in our family and it just didn’t seem like the 4th of July without it. Even when we went to our local fireworks, we’d always tape both A Capitol Fourth and Pops Goes the Fourth to watch later. I hope CBS wises up next year and brings back this excellent show.
