Wish I’d seen this earlier

February 23, 2014

…but at least I’ve seen it now.  I was skimming The Huffington Post this morning and saw a story about a rock band performing an unconventional version of “The Star Spangled Banner.” Okay, maybe it wasn’t everyone’s cup of tea, so to speak. But I give the band kudos for originality.

Then I scrolled down to the bottom of the article where there was a YouTube link to a version of our national anthem performed by Marvin Gaye at a 1983 basketball game.    Wow.    It was the sexiest national anthem I’ve ever heard…and the crowd even found itself clapping along with the groove that Gaye had laid down in that basketball arena.

Truly amazing! I think it’s well worth three minutes of your time!
