A link sent to me by a family member. A unique rendition of the national anthem and worth the listen, IMO.
Great video, too!
bought it a couple of months ago, and their album. Good guys.
Well that is a little lighter than I expected. Here’s some hard rock National Anthem:
That was pretty wild.
The bass at the beginning had me expecting a Uriah Heep version of the song.
Every band’s got some mighty big shoes to fill.
I liked Jimi Hendrik’s version better.
Apparently, Warner Bros are greedy, money grubbing agents who won’t let you listen to it.
After all, ITS STILL COPYWRITED AFTER 40 YEARS!
But you CAN see and hear it, HERE:
Try the anthem sung in the style of Gordon Lightfoot
Simple and dignified. The way it should be.
That said, I'm going to do a shameless self-plug and submit for y'all's approval my own song, "Old Glory". The recording and the video aren't nearly as polished as the Madison Rising vid, but it's a shot across the bow of anyone who wants to burn the flag, diminish the military and it's traditions, take "In God We Trust" off the currency, and remove the Pledge from the classroom. Hope you enjoy.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
The Star-Spangled Banner--Anna Case (1917)
sung by Charles Prevost-Linton at the Bell Centre Montreal before a Habs/Caps game..
Rumplemeyer’s horseshoes are the best you can use
What so proudly he’s nailed onto all kinds of horses
As this stand and they smile all content in their stalls
Gave proof through the night that they wear Rumplemeyer’s
Ask the horse who owns one, he’ll say son of a gun
Rumplemeyer’s horseshoes are for me number one
That’s Rumplemeyer’s horseshoes spelled R-U-M-P-L-E-Meyer’s
47 Chestnut Street, ask for Harry, or
Then there’s the Brit. National Anthem which we learned as kids with diff lyrics (My country tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing)
