    5 Best National Anthems

    Carrie made it to number three on Billboard's list of 5 best national anthems. The article is actually about the ten worst national anthems with an added best list but I didn't want to scare people into thinking Carrie made the worst list.

    Wasn't there a list EXACTLY like this one, like, last year?

    Jimi Hendrix >>>>> Whitney Houston. I mean, Jimi's NA just oozes sex to the ears, y'know? Like, you hear it, and it tickles your ear pink, and you're sittin' there like, "Jimi, that feels good," but in your ears and stuff. There aren't many people who can do that, but I mean, the way that NA penetrates your ear, it really does feel so cool, y'know? It's absolutely timeless, too.

    Yes, there is actually a thread here from just before last year's Superbowl that has a link to the same web page on Billboard. All they did was update it by adding last year's Superbowl NA from Christina Aguilera and Stephen Tyler's recent NA to the worst list.

    I knew I wasn't crazy. I still don't see what was so bad about Steven's. It's exactly the way Steven Tyler would sing it. What did people expect lol? He sings nonmodally always, though I agree it doesn't fit the NA.

    Her voice is one that is made for such great songs about America. I think we should make it to where Carrie and ONLY carrie can sing the national anthem since she is for sure not to mess up unlike some people AND sings it LIVE!

    No wonder the list looked familiar. lol I thought I had seen it before but I searched recent threads and didn't find anything. But, yes, it is always nice to re-listen to Carrie singing the national anthem.

    My all time favorite National Anthem was Carrie's sound check for the super bowl. That was perfection to me and I'm really picky about performances of the National Anthem. It was loud in the arena the night of the super bowl which I believe caused the little bum note at the end but I love the choices she made with that rendition. The above mentioned is also amazing of course. jmho

    What is so great about Carries version is that it is humble and sincere enough that it stays committed to the melody so that the listener is inclined to want to join her. Which you hear as the statium sang along. And the power that she lends to it makes the heart beat along.
    Now that is a National Anthem to be proud of. What is the point if most folks can't even recognize it?

    I really like the Super Bowl soundcheck one too... the one above is great as well, but I much prefer the "free" near the end being belted out like at the Super Bowl instead of the high note
