Re: The Best National Anthem...?

It is a bit funny when the French anthem is played/sang abroad, or at the Olympics: :P

CANADA

Loved it for years. For over 10 years I have hummed it in my head at random times for no reason at all


The French tune is used as the theme song for one of our Aussie Rules footy teams. Every time I hear the anthem their theme song enters my head and it's not my team

I love the Italian national anthem especially during the Olympics, its very uplifting at the end.

Gotta love the French. German one is good too.

Re: The Best National Anthem...?

The Welsh Anthem is pure class, and when it comes to passion, I don't think anything beats 70,000 Wales fans at the Millenium Stadium for a rugby match belting it out.
I love the South African anthem too, which involves 5 seperate languages:

I like our Canadian anthem, but it annoys me when some singers seem to prolong it for as long as possible by stretching out every single fucking syllable. It would be much better if they were to sing it normally and get it done in about a minute for goodness sake. The same thing often happens with the American anthem too.

Welsh.

The French one was up there as well.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

It has great lyrics It's simply one of my favourite also. Along with the French and the Brazilian anthem.
