Ugh. I can't stand when the Star Spangled Banner is sung as a dirge. The original song was a drinking song for the Anacreontic Society, and much faster. It was never meant as a demonstration piece for performer to show-off how long they can hold notes.

Some of the most chilling moments are when you hear an entire stadium singing their national anthem, be it in Canada, Germany, Sweden, or wherever. But that doesn't happen here because the singers never sing the song consistently, or even close to the way its supposed to be sung.



Sorry for getting on my high horse.

P.S. that was pretty funny with the condor.
