“Philadelphia Freedom” is a song released by Elton John along with other numerous number-one U.S. hit singles during the early and mid-1970s. Taupin who helped write this song denies the lyrics have anything to do with tennis, Philly Soul or even flag-waving patriotism. Still, the words in this song have been interpreted as patriotic and uplifting. the song fit perfectly with an American music audience already preparing for the country’s bicentennial celebration in July of the next year. All together this song was patriotic and helped bring people together and support the United States.
