DWTS 12, Week 5 – What Songs Will The Couples Dance To For Patriot Night?

PureDWTS reader Lori had a great idea in the “Yankie Doodle Dandy” Entertianment Post to quess which “American” themed songs our dancing couples might be dancing to tonight. Buttercup, one of our show informants, said to not assume the words “America” or “USA” are in the titles of the songs. She stated the songs could also be about a “State”. Buttercup also noted that the producers “are not in charge of how the couples portray their given song”.

So, below, we’ve compiled the guesses so far (from several threads) with links to videos for them. I also added several more songs I thought of when putting this post together. If you have more guesses (and even what songs each couple might be dancing to), mention them in the comment section and we’ll add them through out the day (time permitting). It will be fun to see if any of our choices are correct and are performed tonight, hmmm? Special thanks to all who have participated so far. 🙂
