Thread Name: Politically incorrect national anthems
Subject: RE: Politically incorrect national anthems
The best Canadian anthem was "The Maple Leaf Forever" which was wildly incorrect. Great song, great words. Someone should have a go at it again. Although it is worth saying that "O Canada" is pretty good to sing -- witness the spontaneous singing at the hockey finals of the Olympics. Hard to imagine a spontaneous dose of "The Star Spangled Banner" (where is Whitney Houston when you need her?)
