Oh no...not God Save the Queen....
If any country adopted "Final Countdown" as their national anthem, I'd switch allegiance in a heartbeat.
Most are poor, God Save the Queen is one of the worst. You'd think the least they can do with our national anthem, even if you can't get a nice piece of music, would be to make it at least vaguely to do with Britain. But I digress.
The French have a notable exception.
I was hopeful for the Spanish national anthem when I found it had no words (thus bypassing the standard issue theocratic/royalty-loving/warmongering direness), but later found it's quite a dull tune.

We're on iTunes - why not give us a review?
The Liechtenstein one is great. It's played the tune of God Save the Queen but with different words.
The South African one is class.
The old Soviet/current Russian one is quite good imo.
And of course I'll push God defend New Zealand.

Boult to Mathews, OUT, Caught at second slip! It was a length ball going across Angelo, who tried to hit it hard towards the leg side and got an outside edge that flew fast towards Guptill, who took a reflex catch in front of his face
I like the tune for the French Anthem, but the lyrics are really bad.
I like the Kiwi one tbh.
Shame they're all ****s.
