I like the US' first and foremost, then it would have to be the USSR, then my version of God Save the Queen.

American version of God Save the Queen.

My country tis' of thee
Sweet land of liberty
To thee I sing
Land where my fathers died
Land of the Pilgrims Pride
From every mountain top
Let freedom ring.

hehehe :P

Of course they are all good songs and they all do what they are supposed to do, stir up the patriotism of the people of that country, who doesn't feel a bit of pride when they hear their national anthem played at the Olympics?

Either America's or Cuba's you know Row Row Row your boat Cuban refugees, if you paddle fast enough you'll make it to the Keys.
Nulli that was funny as hell, did you make that up or did you take it from somewhere else, and the really funny part about it is that it's true.

Gimn Sovetskogo soyuza - The anthem of the Soviet Union
Music: A. V. Aleksandrov
Lyrics: Sergey Vladimirovich Mikhalkov

Same music as the anthem of Russia but different lyrics.
It is so grandiose. Listen to it when the Red Army Choir and Band. Love it.

But still, the Swedish national anthem is very high up in my list of favorite ones.

Me too, for that matter I just love studying Russian history, it is facinating all the changes they have gone through.

I think the German one is just plain excellently done. Then again it's no surprise with their great history of oustanding composers.

I like God Save the Queen

Though I think I like the words of the American version better. More reflective of the people.

Personally I voted for Advance Australia Fair, but remember singing God Save The Queen at school before the change.
