Here's a version of the Star Spangled Banner that's getting a lot of play:

Nationalism is a shared group feeling in the significance of a geographical and sometimes demographic region seeking independence for its culture or ethnicity that holds that group together. This can be expressed as a belief or political ideology that involves an individual identifying with or becoming attached to one's nation. Nationalism involves national identity, by contrast with the related concept of patriotism, which involves the social conditioning and personal behaviors that support a state's decisions and actions. Le nationalisme est un principe politique, né à la fin du XVIIIe siècle, tendant à légitimer l'existence d'un État-nation pour chaque peuple (initialement par opposition à la royauté, régime politique qui en France sera ensuite nommé Ancien Régime). Ce principe politique s'est progressivement imposé en Europe au cours du XIXe siècle et au début du XXe siècle. Les historiens ne présentent pas ce nationalisme, en général, comme une idéologie, car il est peu et mal argumenté ou justifié par des intellectuels. Depuis son avènement il est en revanche facilement présenté comme une évidence dans la vie politique et sociale.
:cheers: for the difference, in inglish it's a group feeling and in french a political principal

I've always liked this version. The actress at the end just passed away recently -- she was the last surviving cast member of Casablanca.

this one unfortunately, so boring


I wish it had been this one instead, it's a catchy and lively tune.

^ Most national anthems fall into either the church-hymn category or the military-march category, so you've got one of each. :D

Yeah, come to think of it, a lot of anthems do fall into one of those two categories.

New Zealand's is definitely in the church hymn category. Literally, it was the country's "national hymn" from 1940–1977, until it became our second national anthem (we still have the British anthem as one of ours, from our colonial days).

Standard church hymn performance:


Bit more modern arrangement, with extended lyrics:

Night and day, the gates of dark Death stand wide;

And here are the lyrics:

Oh, say can you see by the Dark’s burly might
That so loudly we laughed at the weak Light’s last screaming?
Whose flawed gripes and trite scars went quietly into the night,
O’er the ramparts we watched as we were dastardly scheming?
And the Light Saber's red glare, severing limbs everywhere,
Gave proof through the Fleet that the Dark was still there.
Oh, say does that blood-spattered banner yet wave
O’er the land of the Sith and the home of the Knave?
