|national anthems are (mostly) rubbish

8 or so bees in my bonnet
...all seeming written in the 19th century
by untalented struggling songwriters
to help prop up various decaying empires,
national anthems are an embarrassing leftover.
they say nothing about the culture of the country.
about which they are so fervantly sung
at least italy's is a bit jaunty
and spain's has no words...
and thus they both spare themselves the jingoistic nonsense
that are most NATIONAL ANTHEMS..?
