Here's my choice. Whitney Houston at Superbowl XXV in 1991. That's long before she became a crack whore and could still smile.

Not quite our anthem but the most well known version of the haka. Was a maori war dance but is more famous worldwide for it's performance by sports teams. This one is actually performed by the "NZ Maori" rugby team, (I think), and it's a pretty good rendition

New Years 2006. Every year at almost midnight the president addresses the nation, followed by the national anthem as the clock hits the new year. It's a great and powerful feeling. Aired on a lot of Russian tv channels at midnight.

I fully share Oldeuropean's sentiment and selection.

And from my specific European routes, the Irish national anthem: Amhran na bhFiann, or in English "A soldier's Song".

But first, I've decided to put this one in first, as it was a very emotional moment for all Irish people I think. For those of you unfamiliar with Irish history and rugby let me point out a few things to you which make this a truly moving video.

Firstly, unlike other sports at international level on the island of Ireland in which there is a national team representing the Republic of Ireland and a team representing Northern Ireland; in rugby buth "north and south" (the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland (UK)) join forces in a sole team representing the island of Ireland. For this reason, there is a "second" anthem palyed at rugby matches involving the Irish team called "Ireland's Call". For rugby matches played in Ireland, they will usually play both the "official" national anthem of the Republic of Ireland and Ireland's Call, which imho, is always emotional.

Secondly. Croke Park is currently the largest stadium in Ireland with a capacity of 82500 (fourth largest stadium in the EU). This is the home of the GAA, the Gaelic Athletic Association, so less well known internationally until this year, usually only used for Gaelic footbal/hurling events, yet concerts have been held there as were the openning and closing events of the 2003 Special Olympics. As Landsdowne Road staium has been closed, the standard Irish venue for rugby and soccer matches, demolished and is now being currently rebuilt, during this time the GAA "eventually" agreed to host the Irish national soccer and rugby union teams. The first international rugby match to take place there was France v Ireland in early February of this year... France won.

Thirdy... why this viedo is so moving... Croke Park, and given its GAA stand, is very Irish. In 1920 it was the scene of what was later to become known as "Bloody Sunday" in which British soldiers entered the stadium during a match and openned fire indicriminately, killing 13 spectators and 1 player. February 24th of this year was a special date as Ireland played England in Croke Park in the rugby Six Nations... going on to beat the English side 43-13. This was symbolic given the 1920 massacre that took place here and the entire past conflict between Britain and Ireland. Obviously the playing of the anthems was to be a key part of the day before the actual match began. There had been fears in the press that there may be trouble as Britain's "God Save The Queen" was played... but what happened was complete and utter respect throughout the stadium, from both Irish and English supporters. Then the Irisn National Anthem was played, followed by "Ireland's Call" (also highly symbolic) and by which stage many of Ireland's players were beyond singing given the high emotions of the moment. This is a day most Irish people will never forget. Still brings a tear to my eye when I see it, and even more so as it was just 10 month's after my dad passing away, and I know he would have loved this so much. All this may seem insignificant to those of you who are unfmailiar, not Irish or British, but I can assure you for the Irish it is not, and it goes to show how people can move on and forget the past.




The Irisn national anthem as "used to be "shown at the end of viewing every night on RTE, the nation's national TV network:



And as shown on RTE back in the 60's, showing images of a very different Ireland to the vibrant economy and cosmopolitan nation that Ieland has become (includes a shote of a B707 in EI's old colours):

Here is the Irish national anthem being sung by supportes at Croke Park in Dublin, in Irish:



And "Ireland's Call"... with the lyrics a bit clear in case you want to hear them. Video with rugby image... remember it's a very much a rugby song for ALL of Ireland.




Long live Aer Lingus!

Have to agree with you Mark. My favorite not only because it was well done, but because the Giants won the Super Bowl that year as well.  

Also:
2002 Super Bowl National Anthem.


As for other great ones: (Okay, well, not really)



Props to the coach for coming over and helping her in what was a pretty bad situation.

I never was a huge fan of the Swiss National Anthem, but I've come to like it since the World Cup 2006 - especially after having been at the Switzerland - Togo "Heimspiel" at the Westfalenstadion in Dortmund.  Smile

I didn't know that the current Russian National Anthem is the same as the Soviet National Anthem, well the music is the same, but are the words the same?

I think this national anthem is a very stirring song. I remember hearing Canadians whistling it during the Canada-Russia hockey series back in 1972.

I have to say I'm a little disappointed by Aeroflot777's selection. The music is great, but the slide show of the Kremlin that accompanies it is a little staid. Too bad it didn't have action shots of Russian people as an accompaniment.
