Oh no...not God Save the Queen....
If any country adopted "Final Countdown" as their national anthem, I'd switch allegiance in a heartbeat.
'You will look very silly said Mr Salteena with a dry laugh.
Well so will you said Ethel in a snappy tone and she ran out of the room with a very superier run throwing out her legs behind and her arms swinging in rithum.
Well said the owner of the house she has a most idiotick run.'
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.
they all suck balls can we just get rid of them already
