Title: Patriotic Songs !!
Post by: Rct2mad on September 23, 2008, 02:02:48 pm
I'm wondering what song do you think is the most patriotic, considering where you live or were born.
For me, it's Land of Hope and Glory, England, Great Britain.
;D

I think very highly of God Save the Queen. Though that may be because I listen to A Night at the Opera a lot...

I wouldn't judge a language on a video where over 40.000 drunk football fans are singing.

Here's one without the alcohol and manly voices.  ;)

I'm desperately trying to find a video of Tripod's New Aussie Anthem. It's very mean and offensive but also very funny, and also totally unavailable even as an mp3.  :(

This is my favourite National Anthem:

As for my country, patriotic songs have been out of fashion for a hundred years, I can't find any. No big loss to anyone I'm sure.  :)

I don't know, this song just touches me, way more then our national anthem. Perhaps because I can relate to this song.

In Dutch, I'll write the translation with some explanation on certain things:

[Lange Frans]
Kom uit het land van Pim Fortuin en Volkert van de G.                       
Het land van Theo van Gogh en Mohammed B
Kom uit het land van kroketten, frikadellen
Die je tot aan de Spaanse kust kunt bestellen
Kom uit het land waar Air Max nooit uit de mode raken
Waar ze je kraken op het moment dat je het groot gaat maken
Kom uit het land van rood-wit-blauw en de gouden leeuw
Plunderen de wereld noemen het de gouden eeuw
Kom uit het land van wietplantages en fietsvierdaagses
Het land waar je een junkie om een fiets kan vragen
Het land dat kampioen werd in 88
Het land van haring happen, dijken en grachten
Kom uit het land van, het land van Lange Fransie
Dit is het land waar ik thuis kom na vakantie

I come from the country of Pim Fortuyn (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pim_Fortuyn) and Volkert van de G.  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volkert_van_der_Graaf).
The country of Theo van Gogh (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theo_van_Gogh_(film_director)) and  Mohammed B  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mohammed_Bouyeri)
Come from the country of Croquettes and Frikandellen (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frikandel)
That you can even order at the spanish coast
I come from the country where Air Max is never out of fashion
Where they break you as soon as you're making it
From the country with Red-white-blue and the Golden Lion
Plundering the world, calling it the golden age
Come from the country of wheat farms and Fietsvierdaagse (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fietsvierdaagse)
The country where you can ask a junk for a bike
The country that became the champion in '88 (soccer)
The country of Herring biting (Old tradition, can't find a link for explanation) dams and Canals.
I come from the country of, the country where 'Lange Fransie' (Tall Fransie, Lange Frans is his Nickname)
This is the country where I return to after holiday.

I'll translate some more but I don't have any time anymore, also, I'm kinda tired so I'm sorry if the translation is a bit vague. Ah well, atleast it's better then babelfish (A)
