America the beautiful is easier to sing, but I wouldn't actively try to get the national anthem changed.
" May you live as long as you wish, and love as long as you live"
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
yeah the SSB CAN be hard to sing especially if you dont practice it and think ahead and start to high. We've all seen even great singers make this mistake
Whitney Houston may be my favorite around 90 before she had her "issues"
and as far as America the beautiful id have to pick Ray Charles version, it was epic in my opinion.
I would suggest that Americans amend the Star Spangled Banner by refusing to sing the line "and the land of the free" until American freedom is restored.

The bellicose SSB is nearly impossible for all but the best trained singers to wrangle It is a tribute to our sides survival in a single battle rather than an observational ode to the nations timeless perpetual beauty.
