Our national anthem was better before it had that stupid intro that the AFL always play. Sounds like Star Wars is about to begin.
Really? I love the anthem that is played at the footy. Julie Anthony sings it so well, and the backing music gets me pumped up for whatever I'm doing. If anyone's interested, this is the one the AFL uses:

I have memories of singing AAF at primary school too. Including 2nd verse. What's weird though is this link says it was 1984 when AAF became the official national anthem. http://www.naa.gov.au/collection/fact-sheets/fs251.aspx
And I was in high school by 1984

Have no memory of singing God Save the Queen at school though. So I dunno. Memory can screw with you. Maybe schools started signing it before the final ruling? Maybe I'm imagining the memory. Wouldn't be the first time. Maybe it's merging memories? Dunno. I'm gonna stop talking now
