5 national anthem suggestions that will be nationally adored.
- God save the Queen’ by the Sex Pistols, 1977:
Featuring uplifting lyrics such as ‘When there’s no future/How can there be sin/We’re the flowers/In the dustbin’, this absolute tune which inspires national pride, in our history, future and monarchy.
2. ‘Sorry- (PURPOSE- the movement), Justin Bieber 2015:
If Justin Bieber can be universally forgiven for being a twat through one mediocre pop song, there’s hope for the rest of us. In fact, by making this song by a Canadian whose newly dyed fringe was trending on facebook, our national anthem it may help nations to forgive us for the numerous colonial and wartime atrocities Britain has committed over the years.
3. ‘No Pigeons’- Sporty Thievz 1999:
This classic is a parody of the well known hip hop classic ‘No scrubs’ by TLC. However this tune speaks the universal truth which unites all British people ‘Oh no, I don’t want no/No Pigeons’. It’s true, we, as a nation, do want less pigeons.
4. Go your own way’- Fleetwood Mac 1977:
Everyone likes this song. Everyone liked that advert that featured a pony walking to this song. This should be the nations song.
5. ’Ashes to Ashes’ David Bowie 1980:
I think we should have a David Bowie song featuring on this list at some point, plus it’s my mums birthday and it is her favourite David Bowie song, and this is my list. The Queen got the last song to be all about her, and she’s not remotely as great as Bowie, why can’t he have a pop?
