Re: The Best National Anthem...?

I absolutely love the Russia (ex-CCCP) national anthem. Got to hear it a lot of times in several Winter olympics!
The other one is the Israeli national anthem-- one that really "fits" their history: moving, uplifting, etc. Whoever scored it did it from the heart.

Charly Garcia doing the Argentine anthem.

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".

Re: The Best National Anthem...?

In my view, the best anthems are:

UK, Russia, Bulgaria, Hungary, Germany (what are people talking about, UK's anthem is superb)

followed by

US, Japan, Israel

followed by

France, Spain, Poland

Italy's is terrible. It's a shame how a country with such a proud classical music tradition can offer up such trash.

The score is an ancient European song of Italian renaissance origin called La Mantovana. It appears in a different form in the Vltava of Smetana. Later it was adapted into the Israeli anthem.

It's just one of the most beautiful ones. They can be proud of their anthem.

I don't like em but was forced to listen to it at school and the American one is not bad but USA-G.W bush ok won't say more.

justin bieber is not the best in history.
funk was better than rap.
techno not better than classic rock.

numbers are not everything.

Re: The Best National Anthem...?

Why is no one saying the German anthem? It's probably the best one, musically speaking. Then again it was written by Haydn, so it's a bit hard to compete.

I don't get the UK anthem bashing. It's so much more dignified and stately than the French, Italian, etc. anthems.

I don't like hypocrites, but even worse are the ones who think it's OK to be an asshole as long as you are not hypocritical.

Re: The Best National Anthem...?

In terms of just music- I love the Japanese national anthem. I get excited when their athletes win medals at the Olympics as that means I will hear the anthem.

I like a lot of players.
