Cool and haunting but very respectful version of our National Anthem sung in a minor key.


TOPICS: Music/Entertainment
KEYWORDS: nationalanthem
Perhaps, in a way, this reflects on the state of our country

Interesting.

Tried something like that years ago and just couldn’t manage the change.

Closest I ever got was having a cold and being forced to sing parts in minor but, I couldn’t keep the change and bounced parts back to major.

Good job.

Interesting. A bit spotty in some parts but overall a very respectful and well done version.

Absolutely beautiful. This guy is genius. For as young as he is, he has a real future in music composition.

Interesting version. The tune of the Star Spangled banner is an English drinking song To Anacreon In Heaven and perhaps doesn't quite give the solemnity to the lyrics. My favorite rendition of the Star Spangled Banner is an instrumental version by Felix Vinatieri, band master for Custer's 7th Calvary

Beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

He is singing in what is called Sean Nos in Ireland. No instruments, just a beautiful voice that pulls at the heart.

I have perfect pitch hearing. It is sometimes a curse. ;) The young man did not hurt my ears.

Nice and depressing — just like America under Obama.

Too bad he didn’t make it swing.

The one and only version of the SSB I like is the one played by the US military. It ain’t broken so stop trying to fix it.

I did not like it.

Leave that song alone!

If I could sing, which I can’t, I would sing the minor key version at any event Obama cursed with his presence.

Otherwise we’d go with the flag-raising version!

Makes you wonder what "Anacreon in Heaven" would sound like in the same minor key.
