Getting back to the thread I reckon the best national anthem ever (tune wise) was the old Soviet Union's. That's one awesome piece of music!

Coming back to the point of debate, God Save The Queen is a fine National Anthem for such a fine upstanding country. If it isn't broken let's not try to fix it - unless it's for Rule Brittania!
what would happen if our word for "queen" had more than one syllable?

Perhaps we should look at having Land of Hope and Glory for the UK National Anthem, just a suggestion

Like "God save the elpaw?" or God save 2776? A good choice.

no, i was thinking if we didn't use "queen" but "kingette" or something like that. then the word wouldn't fit into the rhythm and there would ghave to be a seperate anthem for king and kingette.

Oh really? I think we were involved in both wars the longest - wasn't it 41 before you became involved in WW2?

If it wasn't for the fool that was Chamberlain it may never have came to war.(I.e we could have stopped germany before they were on our doorsteps)

To be honest I don't give a diddly squat about America's independance - let's face it, it was going to happen anways.

There's no need to be jealous or hold admiration for yanks - anything that's anything normally has links to the British.

Yes, the Russians did abandon it for while after the collapse of the USSR. The had a new anthem for a temporary time but it seems everyone thought it was shite so they went back to the old one.

Let's face it, that was not on my list of priorities. I'm not going to cry myself to sleep over that one.
