Thread Name: Tune Add: The tops in National Anthems
Subject: RE: Tune Add: The tops in National Anthems
They showed Tich and his version on a programme about Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau last night. Brought a tear to the eye ...
I'm quite partial to France's as well, and I always prefer singing the French of Oh Canada - nicer words by a long shot. And I don't know how many time they've changed the English words since I was a kid.
I don't even mind the Ding Dangled Spanner, except it's got such a ridiculous range. Why don't Americans sing their national anthem - just let some soloist belt it out? I kinda think that "America" would have been a better choice ... but none of my business really.
