Still, that sounded well done, even if it's not my thing.
I guess that's just it, though, it's the National Anthem....and not any 'one' person's.
Oh, I know how you feel; I have always been like, "leave it alone, and don't try to to do anything to it" , and when somebody sent me that video, I rolled my eyes and thought "Oh great, somebody else trying to mess with the song, it's gonna be awful, and I will be annoyed by the end".....
But I watched it, and I was really impressed....I still like the straight, traditional performance of the song, but I can't help but like this version.
