In my other post today I was asking where in the world you are so I thought I might add this extra post about our national anthem, since Australia is where I am.
Our national anthem in called Advance Australia Fair and you either love it or hate it. I love it, only because it makes me feel all patriotic, but I understand why people might not feel the same way.
In this clip the hilarious Adam Hills (Aussie sign language) shows us how our national anthem would sound if it was sung in the style of a great Aussie rock icon, Jimmy Barnes and the song Working Class Man.
Barnesy is known for his screaming, drinking and all round rock attitude, and he and his band Cold Chisel are responsible for a few other songs that also qualify for Aussie anthem status. If our real anthem was sung like this…well… we all might come over so Aussie we would explode. Apologies if you like the more serious version.
