   Flutepilot posted on Main Page The Lobby  I commented here, or on L.com about a week ago about how much I hated our National Anthem being messed with so much. Well - I played a concert on Thursday. The National Anthem was one of the arrangements in 4/4 instead of the original 3/4. People tried to sing and gave up. At least one of our trumpet players refused to play it that way.

Gee, I wonder what would happen if O Canada, Deudschland Uber Alles, La Marseillais or (heaven forbid ) Russia's National Anthem were changed into a different meter. Can you say mobbed stages or Gulag? Yet people seem to think they can do whatever they want to our sacred song. GAG!

   Ynaught  So many Americans seem to feel it okay to burn our flag, but no one else's; to desecrate the Bible, but not the Koran; to abuse our law-abiding, tax paying citizens, but not illegal aliens; and to alter our National Anthem while leaving alone as sacred that of another country. For some reason these people seem to feel shame rather than pride in our country and heritage. It would be nice if our schools would emphasize the good in our nation, but that doesn't seem likely these days.

   Shooter1002  Jimi Hendrix, Jose Feliciano, Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye to name a few have all desecrated the National Anthem in the same way the flag burners have desecrated the flag.
Its not a 'soul tune' or an ethnic composition. Its not sung in Italian or Gaelic, it was written in English to be sung in English. Its about America and for Americans.
If you want a soul song, wheel out Aretha and get her to do 'Respect'!

   Escaped commieny  Mere words can not convey the deep sense of loss. Our prayers are with the family. He touched all our lives so we feel blessed to have had him in our lives and share the sadness of him being taken from us too soon. Thank you Ms Lucianne for your gift to us, we love you so much. Ditto, God holding you and yours in the palm of His hand.
