It is pretty, but I think I actually [very slightly] prefer Maamme as the national anthem.lumiel wrote:Finlandia-hymni is so much prettier than Maamme. It makes me sad that it's not our national hymn instead.

I love that song! I've listened to it at least 100 times.

Are you kidding? The chorus alone is more epic than any other five anthems combined. It sounds impressive, even awe-inspiring, but there's also something a little sad about it when you think how the lyrics are glorifying the great Soviet Union and the march towards communism and you realize that none of that was ever going to happen and the whole idea was a lie.I think it has more to do with your avarage authorian ideology - monumental, glorifying and therefore, ofcourse they go for epic, or a march that naturaly sounds epic too. BTW I don't get what people hear in the soviet anthem - it is so long winded that only granies in 1950s ought to love it
My favourite part is the one about the impure blood of your enemies watering your furrows. French truly is the language of love, n'est pas?Marah wrote:and la Marseillaise. It's really great that you don't actually need to "sing" it, you can just shout it.
That's not the national anthem of Finland. "Maamme" is. (I know it sounds like a racist character from a Civil War-era novel, but that's its name.)Finlandia Hymni
What's that? Totenkopf?"Tot el camp" is really nice too.
