TO ALL YOU RETARDS OUT THERE THAT INSIST ON SINGING IT AS A BALLAD SO THAT YOU CAN EMBELLISH, YOU ALL NEED A GOOD SWIFT BOOT IN YOUR CULO FOR THAT NONSESNE. LOOK AT THE TIME SIGNATURE AND BPM INDICATOR AT THE TOP ON ANY SHEET MUSIC. TRUST ME, IT WON'T STEER YOU WRONG!
my country has the exact same problem. God, there's this one girl in school who insists in belting out the national anthem. oh yes, she has a very very excellent voice but still, i feel like she's showing off whenever she sings. in my view, she's going like "hey, listen to me, i'm singing the national anthem as a ballad cause i'm so awesome!"
It's terrible annoying, and people who sing it like that I wanna go up and strangle the living daylights out of them.
Don't you just hate that shit? I know I can't stand it. I'm a musician. I played clarinet in band for six years and had to memorize the national anthem. I know how it's supposed to go. It annoys me to no end when it's played and sang wrong unless it's intentionally composed that way. Now, after 9-11, there was a composer that took the "Star Spangled Banner" and slowed it down into a ballad to show the love and patriotism that the entire country felt after that happened. THAT I'm ok with... but these 'pop divas' that slow it down to show off their vocal range- like I give a shit! Sing it the way it's supposed to be sang!
As for this little girl Rebecca or whatever her name is... she's too young for this and her mother in that interview pissed me off. No parent should pay to have a child to do something like this.. no matter who the company is. The kid needs to get out there and earn it. Cut a demo after saving their allowance for YEARS if need be and send it to record companies. Do it the old fashioned way!
