Italy's! I quite frequently hum that tune cos it cheers me up (although I prefer not to hear it on F1 podiums for the constructor unless it is the MIGHTY Minardi, but um... unlinkely we'll get a win)

Never heard the Iraqi one!

Least favourite -

God Save our gracious queen (stretch)
Long live our noble queen (yawn)
God (zzzzzzzzz)

It has to be changed, if you can fit some words into the Thunderbirds theme tune then that would be awesome!

Radiohead's "National Anthem"

I'd rather have a bottle in front of me, than a frontal lobotomy.

Sibelius' "Finlandia"

Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.

Italy's national anthem seems to have been composed especially for football matches

I think the French one is really really good.

Didn't I read that some people wanted to ditch it? Because of what some of it goes on about?

There is a debate to about our anthem...currently the God Save the Queen dirge. Some of the later verses go on about killing Scots and stuff. Allegedly. Hee-hee.



I would go along with changing it to 'Jerusalem' for England anyway.

i like the French anthem, I even sing along when I'm at Wales vs France rugby matches
Also like Italian & South African anthems.

But nothing beats the Welsh national anthem
