My top three National Anthems
Welsh - Land of My Fathers- an absolute belter that makes the hairs of my neck stand up

French - La Marseillaise - pretty much the same


Jamaica - Land We Love - Practically a hymn

God Save the Queen - Absolutely nowhere, get rid and replace with either Jerusalem, Land of Hope and Glory and my favourite - I Vow to Thee My Country


Yours?

Jerusalem is probably the best song ever written in Britain but itโ€™s specifically about England. It should probably be the ENGLISH national anthem.

Huh? I always thought it was a CAR that just won't stop? What is a bit that just won't stop? I'm actually quite disappointed. Yyyyha!

Penriffic!

I love the Hong Kong National Anthem. Nice words too:

Hong Kong Phooey
Number one super guy
Hong Kong Phooey
Quicker than the human eye

Oh he's got style
A groovy smile
A bite that just won't stop
When the going gets rough he's super tough
With the Hong Kong Phooey chop

Re: My top three National Anthems
French and German ones are excellent

Jerusalem should be the English anthem at England team events (as distinct from British teams)

Re: My top three National Anthems
God save the Queen is crap. Why is it about some air fairy saving a person?
Why is it played before England games? It's so fucking dull.
Agree with many that the French, German, Taffs, Jocks, Italian, Yanks and even the old Soviet ones are so much better.

Re: My top three National Anthems
Our one is brilliant, short and sweet and no fucking about, as an anthem should be.

French and German ones also decent.

Re: My top three National Anthems
The problem with making Land of Hope and Glory the national anthem is that I would forever imagine it sung in an exaggerated Indian accent and after "mother of the three..." I'd 'hear' "SHUUUUT UUUP!!" and a noodly bit of sitar.

Watching the Italy team sing their national anthem at a world cup gives me goosebumps.

Re: My top three National Anthems
As a young man, I was extremely disappointed when I realized that the theme tune to The Mysterious Cities of Gold cartoon was not in actual fact the Mexican national anthem...

The American is good, tells a story at least.

I just can't put it on my list, maybe because I just heard it a lot more than I ever wanted to.

Was at the beginning of a whole lot of the sports I watched growing up.

Re: My top three National Anthems
I agree on the Jerusalem comment - i like that much more than god save the queen personally

I really like the american national anthem, been fortunate to see it belted out at some american sporting events and once on a 4th of july celebration and it always gets the hairs on the back of my neck going
