That's a fine anthem Aug 18, 2008

... anyone coming runner-up to a Uruguayan will instantly be accused of throwing the final just so that the world can listen to a proper national hymn

At the other end of the scale - and even below God Save the Queen - is surely South Africa's. How in all conscience can anyone listen to that song being played by a brass band? To my ears it's choral or nothing.

You made me laugh... Aug 19, 2008

Many thanks for replying, Daniel.

I congratulate you, on behalf of your country, on the 27 gold medals you won.

We didn´t get any, as usual, but we take Baron Pierre de Coubertin´s words earnestly:" The most important thing is not winning but taking part."

Regards,

Rosina

Well, I like God Save the Queen much more than the Italian national anthem I didn't know the Uruguayan anthem but I've just heard it and it sounds great!
