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.

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"

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.

Can't go past Kenny's version of the Australian national anthem

"Australians all let us ring Joyce, coz she is young and free".
