Top Five Versions of the Star Spangled Banner

With troops still serving in the Middle East, the Olympics coming to an end, (the US winning the medal count) and the political engine reving up, I thought we could take a look at the best renditions of The Star Spangled Banner:

#1:  Marvin Gaye

#2: Jimi Hendrix

#3: Whitney Houston

#4: Dixie Chicks

#5: Wayne Messmer (not the version, but the atmosphere…was a couple of days after we had gone to war with Iraq in 1991)

 

Who am I missing? Would you change the order?

Thanks to Dan Murphy
