I need to rant about this. I don't care who sings it. What color they are or what genre of music they sing be it Rock, Soul or Country. In my honest and Patriotic opinion, the National Anthem of our Great Country SHOULD be sung and/or played the way it was meant to with no deviations from the original sheet music. It doesn't have to be modernized or spiced up. It's quite beautiful the way it was written and sung by so many throughout the years. I'm afraid if I were in attendance at yesterday's Detroit Lions game, I would have had an adverse reaction to Aretha Franklin's 5 minute version. Am I just getting old and senile?
