10 Best National Anthems

It took a month to track down every one of the 205 national anthems that might be heard at this year's Olympic games, but Alex Marshall of ‘The Guardian’ managed to sit through all four and a half hours of them. “What did I learn from all this? That there are only a dozen anthems that are musically worth listening to - and that most of the countries these belong to do not have a hope of winning a gold in Beijing.” Check out this amusing article and find out why Uruguay tops the list.
