Why it's technically difficult:

3 octave register
Awkward rhythmic metre (stuttering rhythms, triplets, time signature)
Leaps all over the shop
Sustained top register passages

By technically difficult, I mean that not everybody can sing it. Regardless of age (with obvious exceptions). What 5 year old can sing in a 3 octave register and leap a major 6th?

All in all, it's a bloody difficult song to sing.


Hardly 1/100th as offensive as OP is being, yet you're not jumping on his dick.


I agree with all of this

How? How does saying your national anthem is shit offend you? Are you really that attached to a song that insulting the song insults you also?

Our national anthem is shit.

i think the reason he's on your dick is because you're up on your high horse yet you're acting similarly insensitive (though you are right about OP, not OK).

It was adapted from a drinking song. Drunk idiots invented the melody, and they managed just fine.

People dont really want to see that... they will be disappointed to not be able to see a Celine Dion or Whitney Houston doing it.

And besides, why are we giving the incident further spotlight anyway? Isn't that part of the problem? Dramatized media acknowledgement?


Giving kids who watched their friends innocently get killed is dramatised media acknowledgement? A famous face singing it is more important?

Again? You're moaning about some kids who watched their friends die? Read back what you're saying, please.

I'm glad you set your standards so high. You don't even know how good these kids can sing.

Exactly. I can't stand them at all, I don't know how Americans still like theirs when they hear it pretty much every day.

Adapted? Yes. But changed. There's no getting away from how difficult it is for the exact reasons I posted

It's a word. I'm not saying he's gay or implying gay people are bad or any shit. I'm just using a word for emphasis, because I'd already used cunt.

So basically, what you're saying is that most Americans are better musicians than people of other nationalities because we memorize much more complex music from an early age.

Works for me.

I hate it to be honest. There are a lot of other patriotic songs that people sing that could be used.

The Russian National Anthem kicks the shit out of most National Anthems.

I fell in love with the Russian anthem because of COD4.

I don't really give a shit, but at the same time I do find the sound of children singing to be incredibly unnerving and obnoxious.
