Best Version of Our National Anthem Ever!!

with 4 comments

Wow!! I actuallly teared up watching this.

And then I found this great parody from SNL on the way too many singers try to turn the national anthem in to an R&B love groove. Too funny!!

  1. Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t really find the national anthem all that inspiring. It’s set to the tune of an old English drinking song, fer God’s sake.

    The parody is hilarious. I like the “B to th’ R to da A” riff. I’m gonna go find a clip of Carl Lewis’ attempt. Sadly enough, it’s not a parody. Or not an intentional parody, at any rate.

  2. As great as this rendition was, I couldn’t help thinking about the AT&T cellular commercials – more bars in more places – where they show all these things like buildings and so forth stacked from smallest to tallest.

    I think it was In Living Color that also had their own parody of folks who stretch out the National Anthem, as well as The Simpsons.

    Thanks for sharing!

  4. WoW .. what an extraordinary rendition of our National Anthem. Glad I’m not the only one that tears up when it’s played beautifully.

    As for the parodies .. who cares? They are not funny, only disrespectful. If folks do not like our National Anthem and think it’s a point of comedy, they need to pack up and move on to another country. In fact, I’ll help them pack; I’ll even bring along a few of my fellow veterans to hasten the process. You see, we still believe in America. We believe in what she stands for, even though we do not always believe our elected officials serve her properly. We will fight and even die to protect her. As far as we are concerned, we will not allow the sacrifices of countless patriots to be trampled by ill-informed, selfish and naive ingrates.

    God Bless America, Land of the Free & Home of the Brave!
