independence: [in-di-pen-duhns] 2. freedom from the control, influence, support, aid, or the like, of others.

The skies are dark in cloudy Cape Town, and we want to hear your Unidentified Freaking audiO for our Independence Day #FridaySongs competition this week.

So pick your favorite American anthem, sci-fi techno, influential indie, anarchic rock, or music that makes you feel like an independent woman. Find the video on YouTube, post the link below, and we’ll play it at full volume, add it to our YouTube channel and compile it into a playlist on our blog.

Since it’s all about independence, you can pick your own winner, and give them a prize of your choosing.
