It has great lyrics
I like the bellicose national anthems.
Just imagine soldiers marching in goose-step, chanting, ready to face the foe.

Funny thing is that in real life I'm antimilitarist and pacifist. A bourgeois though.

It's just a myth just like the one of the flag

One of our commentators while a Brit was getting presented his gold medal.....

"It's emotional stuff here. I'd be on the verge of tears if our national anthem was any good"

Re: The Best National Anthem...?

I love the Russian anthem. Loved it way back when it was the Soviet anthem. And then when the Soviet Union broke up, I saw a Russian athlete win something, and they played a different anthem. I don't think that lasted long, because the next time I saw a Russian athlete win something, they were using the good one again. It's majestic, gorgeous. Love it. I look forward to seeing Russians win things just to hear the anthem.

Save Rafa!
