Sir Speedy, there is a song, American Anthem, composed by Gene Scheer and sung in versions of varying length by Norah Jones. One version was used in Ken Burns' documentary The War. Various people have created montages of photographs, old and new, to accompany the song. All of this can be found online, but do try to hear all the lyrics. I like it a lot and hope you do, too.
I shall get mum to have a nosey for it,xx Speedy
