Sorry for being a bit U. S.-centric here . . . .
Have there ever been serious attempts to change the U. S. National
Anthem that had reasonably strong support? I'd heard once that there
had been an effort to change it to This Land Is Your Land (Woody
Guthrie?) and I know that America The Beautiful is another popular
Is there any hope, or are we stuck with the current one?
p. s. Any truth the the lore that The Star Spangled Banner's tune is
the same as an old English drinking song?
