Pathetic "singing" of the National Anthem

Post by Wildcat445 on Mon Oct 27, 2014 10:39 pm

Once again, we have been subjected to a pathetic performance of a "star" singing the National Anthem at the World's Series. Aaron Lewis, allegedly the lead singer of some rock band, not only could not sing, but he could not remember the words. He looked like he just came off a three day drunk. His voice sounded like a buzzard caught in a buzzsaw. What happened to looking and dressing decently, putting your hand on your heart and singing the National Anthem with the dignity and respect it deserves. And how pathetic is it to not know the words? Christina Aguilar, Cyndi Lauper, Rosanne Barr and probably some others have managed to mangle our National Anthem. Surely, there is somebody, somewhere in this country that can do it right. These sports organizations should be ashamed of themselves for hiring/inviting/causing these no-talent idiots to "sing" the National Anthem.

"Oh, say, can you see by the dawn's early light.? What so proudly we hail at the twilight's last gleaming. Whose broad stripes, and, bright stars through the perilous night, " you know the rest....
We learned it in grade school along with the pledge of allegiance, yes, including "One nation under God, indivisible, with liberty, and, justice for all.".

I did too. Apparently you don't have to know it if you are in a rock band. That guy was horrible.

The national anthem is a very difficult song to sing effectively. It should be done by those who have the ability to exercise the range necessary to render it with respect. If you can't sing it, mouth it quietly in the audience like the rest of us crusty throats! Very Happy

I think most so called singers should stop singing it and have it played by a band when a qualified vocalist is not available.
