Your poll didn't explain if this was only American patriotic favorites, since you did include God Save the Queen. Why not also include the revolutionary war 'anti-anthem', "My Country 'tis of Thee"? biggrin

All in fun. "America the Beautiful" or "God Bless America" should be our National Anthem. Both are much easier to sing and remember.

Wishing everyone a happy 4th of July!

Surely in Virginia the answer must be Carry me Back to Old Virginny. The part about the Dismal Swamp always gets me!

How could anyone not like The Battle Hymn of the Republic as arranged by Peter Wilhousky, a fellow Ruthenian Byzantine?!?

If you participated in high school choir at all, you had to have sung his world-famous arrangement of this classic at one point or another!

"(My Country 'Tis of Thee) America" is "God Save the Queen!"

I voted for "God Bless America" as "The Star Spangled Banner" is an old English Drinking Song!

I guess the Canadians voted for "God Save the Queen!" :p

Ray Charles, America. Hands down the best patriotic rendition of a patriotic song ever sung. Where is it on the poll? "Waltzing Matilda" comes in second.

I.
To Anacreon in Heav'n,
Where he sat in full glee,
A few Sons of Harmony
Sent a petition
That he their Inspirer
And Patron would be;
When this answer arrived
From the Jolly Old Grecian:
"Voice, Fiddle, and Flute,
No longer be mute,
I'll lend you my name
And inspire you to boot,
Chorus:
And besides I'll instruct you,
Like me, to intwine
The Myrtle of Venus
With Bacchus's Vine."
II.
The news through Olympus
Immediately flew;
When Old Thunder pretended
To give himself airs.
"If these Mortals are suffered
Their scheme to pursue,
The devil a Goddess,
Will stay above stairs.
Hark, already they cry,
In transports of joy,
'Away to the Sons
Of Anacreon we'll fly,
Chorus:
And there with good fellows,
We'll learn to intwine
The Myrtle of Venus
With Bacchus' Vine.
III.
"The Yellow-Haired God
And his nine fusty Maids
From Helicon's banks
Will incontinent flee,
Idalia will boast
But of tenantless shades,
And the bi-forked hill
A mere desert will be.
My Thunder no fear on't,
Shall soon do its errand,
And dam'me I'll swing
The Ringleaders I warrant.
Chorus:
I'll trim the young dogs,
For thus daring to twine
The Myrtle of Venus
With Bacchus's Vine."
IV.
Apollo rose up,
And said, "Pry'thee ne'er quarrel,
Good King of the Gods,
With My Vot'ries below:
Your Thunder is useless"--
Then showing his laurel,
Cry'd "Sic evitabile
Fulmen, you know!
Then over each head,
My laurels I'll spread,
So my sons from your Crackers
No mischief shall dread,
Chorus:
While, snug in their clubroom,
They jovially twine
The Myrtle of Venus
With Bacchus's Vine."
V.
Next Momus got up
With his risible Phiz
And swore with Apollo
He'd cheerfully join --
"The full tide of Harmony
Still shall be his,
But the Song, and the Catch,
And the Laugh shall be mine.
Then, Jove, be not jealous
Of these honest fellows."
Cry'd Jove, "We relent,
Since the truth you now tell us:
Chorus:
And swear by Old Styx,
That they long shall intwine
The Myrtle of Venus
With Bacchus's Vine."
VI.
Ye Sons of Anacreon,
Then join hand in hand;
Preserve Unanimity,
Friendship, and Love!
'Tis yours to support
What's so happily plann'd;
You've the sanction of Gods,
And the Fiat of Jove.
While thus we agree,
Our toast let it be:
"May our Club flourish Happy,
United, and Free!
Chorus:
And long may the Sons
Of Anacreon intwine
The Myrtle of Venus
With Bacchus's Vine."

Is there a Patriotic song for the Byzantine Empire?

Is there a "Patriotic Song" for Heaven? Perhaps Holy, Holy, Holy?

If there is a Patriotic song for Heaven that would have to be my favorite Patriotic Song. Dixie and If Heaven Ain't a Lot Like Dixie could be second and third favorites. smile
