France and Russia. Nobody else is even in the game.

Although Newfoundland is now a part of Canada, most Newfoundlanders still consider the beautiful "Ode to Newfoundland" their true national anthem, and it is performed more often than "O Canada".

As an old short wave listener, I had always thought "Ver in die wereld Kitty" was the South Africa national anthem, used as the call sign on on Radio RSA:

My favourite anthem is the Spanish one.
I don't really like our national anthem, though. Radetzky March, The Blue Danube or the old anthem with a new text would have been better picks. Land der Berge sounds like something you'd play at a funeral... Way to slow.

I know alot of anthems as attend and watch alot of International sport.

My favorites not in any order are : France, South Africa, Wales, Samoa, Fiji.

Funnily enough the two countries I reside in most New Zealand and Australia I don't really like either anthem.

Good thread.......

The Russian is, as many posters above stated, one of the very best. Apart from that, I love the Romanian and the German national anthems.


National Anthem Romania - Desteapta-Te, Române! - YouTube


German National Anthem - YouTube

I dont think Ive ever actually heard a national anthem I actually 'like', for me (out of the ones I know) the German is the best out of a bad bunch.
