clearly 'trying something new in every picture' involves killing myself over impossible angles and flags and medals

BUT Dale Begg-Smith, Torah Bright, Lydia Lassila and the entirety of the Australian team - you're all fabulous and did amazingly, congratulations!! <3

trying not to kill the mood but am I the only one who finds our anthem's tune to be a bit.. lacking? as amazing as it was to hear it three times at the podium, admittedly it didn't make me feel really patriotic. it's also often really high-pitched and hard to sing h-haha... nevermind i just listened to it more and holy crap i'm tearing up with national pride h-haha ok leaving now

I played it on the piano (as an accompaniment) in a minor key once for Year 6 muck-up week's final assembly or something. It was... interesting.

The tune's not the most interesting thing in the world, I guess, but apparently Ladonia's anthem is the sound of a stone splashing into water so what can you say?

i'd be interested to hear it in minor, haha
and that's... quite the anthem. i guess it's original?
ChromaticSkies's avatar
Well, it was rather... quirky, in minor. 

Indeed, I find that pretty original. ;D It'd be a pain to sing though.

Yeah, our National Anthem can be a pain to sing. XD

"In joyful strains let us sing"

They got that right.

I'd kill myself with the Chinese anthem. XD I was at a concert once, and all my band mates ended all humming it while the other Chinese people in the audience sang.

Hehe, when I attempt to sing the Chinese anthem, my accent becomes really noticeable. We were staying with an aunt once on a holiday to Shanghai during the Beijing Olympics and everyone started singing the anthem so I was like: OwO lemme try.

Five seconds later, everyone looks at me like, "Are you sure you're singing the right song?"

So I gave up and sang our Australian one instead... Sweating a little...

oh man i just listened to it, that's.. really intense. sounds awesome but i could not sing that hahaha i can hardly sing happy birthday...
All throughout primary school I had been combining the first and second verse I was taught xD I still sing it like that and my friends hate it but it's a hard habbit to get out of

Yep, my own theories were confirmed when we sung it today... very pitchy if it's a large crowd...
Chancey-Rose's avatar
