Thanks for your opinion.

Why it's forgettable:

It has no hook, nothing that to comes back to. It's pretty thorough-composed. I absolutely detest GSTQ, but it serves as an anthem well purely because you can hum it back straight after hearing it once.

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

It's a bit offensive don't you think?


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.

You called him a ******. That's an insensitive thing to say ( I think is what he's getting at)

EEWWWWWWWWW

But for real, am I wrong to not be excited about this? Seriously, a ****ing elementary school choir singing the superbowl national anthem, where the likes of the greatest vocalists of all time should be? I care about Sandy Hook, but not enough to let some untrained little kid class butcher the national anthem. The national anthem is part of the show. 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.
Quote by MediaMate1
Hahaha, thank god. I heard it was the national anthem from somewhere else. But good, the Super Bowl people know better than to feature the sandy hook elementary choir for the national anthem. at least THEY agree with me.


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

ALL national anthems are shit


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.

I'm being as insensitive by calling him out on being a hateful, disgusting human being? Yah ok.

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.

This pretty much. If it is really that big of a deal mute the tv or change the channel. Its like what two minutes of your life? Just get over it.

AHHHHH I did know it! It was the one I was thinking of, but that's COD: World at War, not 4... sorry to be that guy

I'm pretty sure COD4 had that, or some other version of it?

Regardless, I've made it the tone for my morning alarm.

They might both have it, but I specifically remember it being the song that plays when you win a game of multiplayer as the red army on WaW.

Also have fun being monitored by the Feds for allegiance to communism

I don't know a single person that wants to hear the National Anthem ever again. I got annoyed after hearing it two days in a row.

Best part about all this is...THEIR WILL BE GUNS THERE TO PROTECT EVERYONE, HOW IRONIC! Yes, Louisiana you can also walk into that place with a FFL and CHP.

Interpretations? You care? You probably don't even realize that the sing is much longer and more complex then the version often heard.
Quote by MediaMate1
Often, if its really good...
Yeah right, most renditions are even worse then This...

An AWESOME version

We get great interpretations of the nat'l anthem from the Superbowl? Where the hell have you been for the last 25 years? I mean, really...did you hear that one Superbowl where Pavaratti (sp.?) sang the anthem? It was tear-jerking. Oh, wait...no, you didn't, because instead we had some pop star sing it and prove that they should've lip synced it.

I'd say it's hard for them to do worse than the professionals they've brought in.

she sound's like she's singing it for crack, and in a hurry to get her crack.

There is nothing reasonable in that video, cept the dumb ass singer has ridiculous amounts of vibrato and effects.

America's national anthem but scott F dumbass is just an already written song about the queen of who gives a ****.
