National Anthem

Recommended Posts

Whose your favorite singer whose sung the national anthem? Whose your least favorite?




My favorite is Jennifer Hudson, her voice just glistens through out the entire song and she sang it purely the way it should be sung. And my least favorite is R.Kelly and I didnt put the clip here for a reason. He tried to do what the great Marvin Gaye did in his prime with the National Anthem switch up the beat and do the song his way but it was an epic fail.

Why not the French National Anthem ?



(this version was banned a few years ago in France)


Allons enfants de la Patrie, Arise, children of the Fatherland,

Le jour de gloire est arrivé ! The day of glory has arrived!

Contre nous de la tyrannie, Against us, tyranny's

L'étendard sanglant est levé, Bloody banner is raised,

Entendez-vous dans les campagnes Do you hear, in the countryside,

Mugir ces féroces soldats ? The howling of those ferocious soldiers?

Ils viennent jusque dans vos bras They're coming right into your arms

Égorger vos fils et vos compagnes ! To slit the throats of your sons and consorts!


Aux armes, citoyens, To arms, citizens,

Formez vos bataillons, Form your battalions

Marchons, marchons ! Let's march, let's march!

Qu'un sang impur Let impure blood

Abreuve nos sillons ! Water our furrows!
