Must admit I only knew a few national anthems USA, France, British, Canada. The American national anthem is very difficult to sing (some really high notes and if you miss them everyone knows). I've heard and seen a few people mess up the high notes (which ruins the song). People who did this are almost run out of the stadium or the venue were they are. It usually makes national news. Recently someone who sang the national athem at a stadium in Kansas City, Missouri forgot the words to the song and were booed and hissed at for messing it up. The more they sang, the worse it got.

I can't sing and the last time I sang it I was at the Daytona Speedway with a mixture of fans and co-workers around me singing it. I can't get the high notes and made a mistake of trying to do so (people turned around and looked at me like I was nuts). I sounded like I was losing my voice.

My favourites are the South African national anthem and New Zealand - partly I suppose because the different languages are used to sing them and I hear them regularly at rugby matches.

The Australian national song is just a dirge - I hate it.

Mine as well. I also like "God Save the Queen"/"Our Country 'Tis of Thee." I think that's a fine tune.

It was first heard as "God Save The King" in 1745.

I guess I'm a bit biased, but God Save the Queen is my favourite national anthem. Other national anthems that I like are:

-Hymn to Liberty (Greece)
-Marcha Real (Spain)
-Hymne Monegaque (Monaco)
-La Brabaconne (Belgium)
-Kong Christian stod ven hojen mast (Denmark's royal anthem)
-Il Canto degli Italiani (Italy, I even taught myself how to sing the first verse of the Italian National Anthem)
-The Star Spangled Banner (North America)

Runners up are Deutschlandlid (Germany), La Marseilles (France, not so keen on the lyrics though) and Het Wilhelmus (The Netherlands).

Apologies for going a bit off topic, but my favourite patriotic songs are Rule, Brittania!, Land of Hope and Glory, I Vow to Thee my Country, Scotland the Brave (not sure if this is the official national anthem of Scotland or just a patriotic song) and O Canada.

Wow there are many in here I have to listen to. I can't say which I like the best but the one I don't really like is the British anthem, I think a national anthem should be to the nation not directed at one person.

USA
UK
Monaco/Hymn For the Sovereign Prince
South Africa
Canada

Those are my faves off the top ..my hair rises on my neck when I hear The Spangled Banner no matter how many times I listen. But i need to familiarize myself with some others.

I love the tune of La Marseillaise...but I don't care for the lyrics at all.

Can't believe nobody's posted Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau (Land of My Fathers). Very emotional. Best heard at rugby matches. And no I'm not Welsh.




That said:

the loveliest has to be the Dutch
the most stirring the Russian
but the greatest has to be La Marseillaise - surely The national anthem par excellence.
