Your Countries Unofficial Anthems...?

We all have our official national anthems. But there are always songs out there that have a special connection to your country and are considered to be unofficial anthems. So what are yours? Can you name around 5? Less or more?

I can think of a few Australian songs that could lay claim to being our unofficial national anthem. Songs that many people would perhaps prefer to be our official anthem.

'I Still Call Australia Home' - Australian Girls Choir/National Boys Choir

'You're The Voice' - John Farnham

'Waltzing Matilda' - John Williamson (Cover- Perhaps the most iconic version)

'Land Down Under' - Men At Work

Re: Your Countries Unofficial Anthems...?

We have very obvious one. There has been some debate of wheather we should replace current one with what in many peoples mind is our one and only anthem. No luck so far, but I´d bet that in my lifetime change is made



For medal ceremonies. Start from middle of song at about 3.33 for little cresendo End about 5.20 to shorten ceremonies.

That should challenge Russians for most "nationalistic" anthem ever

You're The Voice?


heard at the tennis ad nauseum

We are one but we are many and from all the lands on earth we come,
we share a dream and sing with one voice,

Everybody: I am, you are, we are Australian!!!

Re: Your Countries Unofficial Anthems...?

Also what's wrong with You're The voice? It's a good song and many people have a strong connection with it.

Re: Your Countries Unofficial Anthems...?

^^ Its overplayed and the singer is overrated. I remember when he tried to sing with Tom Jones, that was embarrassing
