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.

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.

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.

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.
