Well as usual I’m up late listening to patriotic songs specifically from the last night of the proms and my favourite year 2009.
Now I wonder what your favourites are it does not have to be from your own country or even an anthem it could even be from lost but misguided cause. To be honest I still think the best music comes from the UK we seem to have the patriotic song down to an art whether it is bagpipes from Scotland or a full blown orchestra at the proms in London, the USA I’m sad to say doesn’t quite get it because they stole an 18th century British drinking song for their national anthem.
However it could be worse and I also want to hear some of the worst patriotic music out there as well.
I’m not sure the Australian’s didgeridoo music or the Kiwi’s Haka have the same impact as national anthems. Which explains our overwhelming success at cricket and rugby.
