    European Anthem



    What are your opinions on the European anthem?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthem_of_Europe

    Do you have any better choices?


    This might not be a good anthem choice, but one of my favourite pieces.

    I’m more than happy with the present one, but if it positively absolutely HAD to be changed, then I’d favour this ………

    But with the proviso that the band playing it must always face towards the nearest non-EU nation when they do!

    (English humour, you’ll need to Google “Colonel Bogey” to get it if you don’t know already)

    LOL! Only if the words from the Erisian Hymn can be substituted!

    Onwards Christian Soldiers,
    Onwards Buddhist Priests.
    Onward, Fruits of Islam,
    Fight till you're deceased.


    Fight your little battles.
    Join in thickest fray;
    For the Greater Glory,

    Ah Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson, what would my world be like without you?

    No, it's great. People in general have yet to accept that we have a European Anthem. We'll see when that happens. I guess when people in general identify themselves as Europeans. I am sure there are plenty of good songs out there, but I think Ode to Joy is really great and I don't think we can get a better anthem. Then of course there is the discussion about the lyrics of it.
