Not bad. With a touch of “My Country, 'Tis of Thee” thrown in, perhaps?

Sounded like “My Country 'tis of Thee”

No…“God Save the Pokemon.”

Come on everybody!

Let’s get more guesses flowing!

Here is another clue:

God Save the Queen?

Lol

“My Country Tis of Thee” and “God Save the Queen” use the same melody. So the “fantasia” in this thread is made up of variations on whichever one of the two the composer (or improvisor) had in mind.

My Husband and I watched this video and he asked me:

  • Why are they playing “My country Tis of Thee”?

To which I replied:

  • My Country what?..No, that is the British national Anthem.

So, he googles “My Country Tis of Thee” and sings it for me.

So I said:

Now google British National Anthem.

And…

Voila!

So, the question is:

How many of you Americans grew up singing this in school not knowing you were singing to the melody of the British National Anthem?

yes ok we did…that is pretty interesting. But totally different feel now isnt it? and that violinist is good.
