    I think the Russian National anthem is about one of the best. It would be great to see her backed up by the Twice Red-Bannered Red Army Chorus!

  2. I won’t be watching any part of this homophobic Olympics.

  3. Was the Russia the Beautiful also written by a Lesbian, who fell out with the ruling party because of its xenophobia, like America the Beautiful?

    Yesterday for the first time I heard a Netrebko at the opening of the Olympics, struggling a bit.
    To me the Olympic anthem is a music made out of leftovers.even an operatic voice in a beautiful dress could not help.
