“Oh, Say Can You…uh, what’s my line again?”

This is why the National Anthem should NEVER go more than 80 seconds, tops!!! Maybe instead of practicing how you’re going to jazz it up and put your own unique stamp on it, you should spend just a tiny bit of time making sure you know the GD lyrics!!!
It bugs the hell out of me when the person who’s been given the honor of singing the National Anthem has to, for some reason, use it to showcase their amazing vocal range and phrasing talent. Do they think they’re going to make new fans by turning the Anthem into a scale exercise? The same goes for you amateur singers…it’s the National Anthem, not an American Idol audition. I personally would’ve preferred if Christina Aguilera’s voice cracked or if she missed half of the notes. Anything but butcher the lyrics. It sends a very “slacker” message to the rest of the world. Do you think they get the words wrong to their “Death to the Infidels” scream right before pushing the detonator button? By the way, this is a very apt analogy since suicide bombings are their “Superbowl”.
Anyhow, I’d like them to have a guest vocalist do “God Bless America”…jazz it up all you want! Do a scat-battle for all I care! But let the Anthem be sung by the CROWD. As I’m sure Francis Scott Key intended. Sure, in a crowd of 80,000 average Americans, I’m sure at least 50,000 would be getting the words wrong, too. But when it’s that many people it’s hard to really understand what they’re saying anyway. That might be the best we can hope for.
