I don't know what the big deal is. Whitney Houston lip-synched that killer version of the anthem over 20 years ago, and it took nothing away from the vocal performance.

Too much singing in the world anyway. Can't get into that whole practice of putting 65,000 extra soulful syllables in every word. It's like scratching something to infection.

I was just wondering how much of a SCANDAL it would be if a new president wanted an instrumental anthem at his/her inaug.? Just a good strong orchestral slam. Que horror!
  10:04am Neg-guh-tor:

I tried to sing the National Anthem drunk at karaoke in my 20s during the Persian Gulf War. I was feeling less than patriotic (same as now) and thought it would be funny to massacre it. I get up there in this shitty little dump bar and request all rise for the National Anthem. Everyone did and saluted which indicated this was no joke and I'd drunkenly fucked up. Had to sing it as best as I could while my friends all stood there wondering what was wrong with me. Hammered!

@BSI: well that I agree with--I saw a new version of the music to the national anthem with all the scales that these obnoxious singers put in there, hilarious.
Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 10:08am G:

@dc pat: Exactlly. If Bush 2005 had used a lipsync singer, people would be all over that shit, and rightly so. That's one thing that drives me nuts when my family talks politics. It's like they are fans of a sports team where their team can never do anything wrong, and the other team totally suck in every way. That kinda creeps me out, because it's clear that they are not being fair or truthful (even with themselves). Holy crap, my family are koolaid drinkers!

Is it possible to see somewhere in the site the most starred tracks/shows from the friendship society?

Another suggestion: it would be great if we can click on any song that we like a lot and see who else has favourited it, and in which other shows has been played (I know there's something similar somewhere in the site). So, on one hand, we could click on these peoples' profiles to check what else they like which would be another nice way to discover music,, and/or, in the other hand, another way to know about other radio shows..

Instead of having playlists or in addition to them, it would be awesome if users had channels (think Youtube). That way we, the insignificant mortal users, could play to be a real DJs (think kids playing with toy versions of real radio equipment), collect songs from the FMU musical archive, to create our own sets, adding mic breaks with our real voiced opinions, to share and clutter the social media realm!!!!111
