Blackcat2 BS: Anthems-are-us (74* d) RE: BS: Anthems-are-us 18 Nov 99


On Waltzing Martilda: the folk msic ensemble I'm in sings it and enjoys it, but for some reason our leader has us perform it each month at the local homeless shelter at which our church cooks and serves. I still don't know why - you'd think a song about a homeless person who dies wouldn't be what the men want to hear while eating dinner. . .

Anthems - to me intrumentals would be the best - them no one would feel compelled to sing them, there wouldn't be any religious (or lack of) references, etc.

Question for the English, Scottish, Welsh, N. Ireland, etc.: Is God Save the Queen sung prior to all sporting events?
