Tell me what do you think is the best version of this anthem. I'm not very patriotic of the queen but I heard a lot of versions of the song I enjoyed and I would like to cover one as a joke (in Quebec it can really be a big joke) so that's it.
La victoire est éphémère mais la gloire est éternelle!

Any version conducted by the late Sir Thomas Beecham (not sure if he actually recorded it, but he did it live many times)

Nope, much as I love the Giant, even their take on it doesn't manage to lift it from the dreary, dirgey depths. It's a rubbish tune, no matter how you dick about with it. Tongue

No one mentionned Queen in the best versions. That's odd, I don't find it better than the other but it's famous.

Hate to say this, but I think Queen's is better than Giant's.

The worst is done by Ingerlund footie fans...

My country, 'tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrims' pride,
From ev'ry mountainside
Let freedom ring!
